Something to think about. Many are touched in various ways by illness, death of a loved one, or other events. Deception is everywhere only God touches in often gentle ways that draw us or hint to us of eternity.
Just a breath – only a touch.
Today, very early, it was not even 4am, I reluctantly (because of need), got out of bed. Through the window facing east I glimpsed the first touch from the rising sun. Leaves and tree trunks through the intense darkness, were flecked by fingers of soft light in some places with a gentle pink colour.
I thought of Elijah who was pursued by evil and darkness (1Kings:19 5-8) …Deception made him believe his only hope was death. Then an angel touched him. (twice). This was God’s answer to his hopeless seeming need.
1. Touched ‘Arise and eat’. Food
He went back to sleep.
2. Angel touched him again. ‘eat and drink……now…go.’.
Matt. 8:3 Jesus put out His Hand and touched the leper. ‘I am willing. Be Cleansed.’. The leper was cleansed.
Particularly in these times when society is trying to infringe on all things beautiful and holy. Ephesians 5:8 rings true. Walk as children of Light.
You were once darkness but are now light in the Lord. Walk as Children of LIGHT!. (Keep eyes upwards and not even venture into the beguiling ways of intriguing darkness.).
SHINE THE LIGHT SO OTHERS MAY SEE THAT GOD WILL BRING HIS MORNING TO EVERYONE’S DARKEST NIGHT IF THEY ONLY LIVE AND WALK ONWARDS WITH HOPE AND TRUST.
Peace! Prayers! and Love!
