Topic: Receive the Touch of Jesus 2— Wednesday September 13, 2017.
Text: John 9:1-5 (NKJV)
Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him. I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”
No matter the situation and the number of years you may have endured it, Jesus has come to touch and set you free. The cause of the situation does not matter to Jesus, so stop worrying about it. Stop giving that situation permission to remain in your life because of what you think may have caused it. Whether it was what you did or what your parents did does not matter to Jesus. What matters to Jesus is your willingness to allow Him to shine His light and show forth His great love for you by manifesting His great power in your life.
Isaiah 53:6 says, “we all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.” God has laid upon Christ whatever the cause of that situation is. Jesus came to set the captives free and John 8:36 says, “if the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” Realize that, that situation is the work of the devil and that Jesus came to destroy all works of the devil, 1John 3:8b. And because Jesus succeeded in destroying the works of the devil, you are already free from that situation.
What you may be going through right now is an opportunity for Jesus to manifest the works and the glory of God in your life. If you believe, you will see the glory of God, John 11:40. Jesus did not come to condemn you, but to set you free. So believe and receive your freedom today. This is your day to receive Jesus’ divine touch. Your life and situation will turn around right now.
Faith Declaration: I believe in what Jesus did for me. Every work of the devil in my life has been destroyed. Jesus has set me free.
