God's Loving Touch

Praise be to our Heavenly Daddy, for it is all about Him. 

My name is Jason Vaughan and I live in N Ireland. I live on the same street as my good friend and Brother in Christ, Martin Tuson. I have known Martin for about 7 years now. Just like any disciple of our Heavenly Dad we want to give Him all the Glory and Honour, for all He has done in our lives - things seen and unseen. 

I remember a few years back we were planning a run, as we did most Saturday mornings. On this Friday in particular, I rang Martin to say I would not be able to make it. The ball of my foot was so painful that I could'nt even touch the floor, never mind run the 4 miles or so we did each week. When on the phone Martin said we should pray about it. As he prayed I put my foot on the ground with my full weight. I actually jumped up and down on it. 

So Martin and myself met up the next morning and ran, giving God all the Glory. Another time my knee was badly injured, I suspected a torn ligament. It was really bad and very painful. I was planning to run 20 miles the following week for a project in India. I was talking again to Martin and he prayed for me. He prayed to our mighty Father for His loving touch. I stretched out my leg and there was no pain. I started to cry, yes cry.

 God there in that moment spoke to my heart and said, "Jason, I love you " I was able to complete the 20 mile run. Praise God. I thought God was not really interested in the little things, like a bad foot or damaged knee. But in my mind I knew he did, because He loves us. Sometimes God raises the dead or heals incurable diseases. We cannot understand. Our ways are not His ways. He knows every hair on our heads. Yes He is interested in the small things as well as the big things.

 If you can't pray or do not know how to pray, speak to God about it from your heart and feel God's loving touch in your life. Romans 5 v.5 says "now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us."
