A Second Touch

Mark 8:22-26 (NKJV)

22 Then He came to Bethsaida; and they brought a blind man to Him, and begged Him to touch him.23 So He took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the town. And when He had spit on his eyes and put His hands on him, He asked him if he saw anything. 24 And he looked up and said, “I see men like trees, walking.” 25 Then He put His hands on his eyes again and made him look up. And he was restored and saw everyone clearly. 26 Then He sent him away to his house, saying, “Neither go into the town, nor tell anyone in the town.”

There are three areas that can occur in our daily walk.  Are there times you are in self-denial?  Maybe your journey has you so confident you are self-centered?  Or is your walk all about Jesus and you are Christ-centered?

We can walk so many times on our own that we miss out on all that God has for us.  We have talents we do not use, people we cross paths with and ignore, or we just think we can do all things on our own.  Jesus wants us to come to know Him and have a relationship with Him that allows His glory to be seen.  There are times we all walk around spiritually blind and need a second touch from Jesus.

He wants our sight to be restored so we can see all He wants to show us.  He wants us to be prepared to share and care for all those that He puts in our path.  When we are Christ-centered we are prepared in the Word and in prayer to truly see all He wants us to see, as well as be all that we are to be.  So pray that the Lord will touch you a second time if you need to see what He has for you.  If you have already experienced His touch thank Him and give Him all the glory!
