Your much required Second Touch!

Do you lack the touch you so earnestly need? Are you starving from lack of touch?
 
We all need physical and spiritual touch, having one without the other leads to discontentment. That is why from a baby to toddler through to teenage and adulthood, we desire human companions as parents, friends or married partners notwithstanding the spiritual touch - God’s touch. Having the human touch without the spiritual touch leads to discontentment and an inability to fulfil God’s purpose because a vital requirement is missing. It is like having a supersonic aircraft like the Concorde airplane with a cruising altitude of 56,000 ft (17,000 miles) which no other commercial aircraft travels at, with the ability to travel at speeds double what other flights can travel on what is called SST ("Super-Sonic Transport") tracks. However, if the Concorde airplane has no aviation fuel (gas or petrol); it will be unable to fly despite its supersonic qualities.
 
A touch, especially a second all-encompassing touch spurs you on to achieve what you have been designed for. What you need to soar, may God deliver to you today in Jesus name!
 
Elijah got both a heavenly touch and a physical earthly touch, may you receive both in Jesus mighty name!
 
7 The angel of the Lord came back a second time and touched him and said, “Get up and eat, for the journey is too much for you.” 8 So he got up and ate and drank. Strengthened by that food, he traveled forty days and forty nights until he reached Horeb, the mountain of God. 1 Kings 19
 
A few years ago, a young man committed suicide. He was a swimming instructor at one of the Barrie Recreational Centres, his girlfriend had jilted him, he must have considered that life without companionship was too bleak and therefore not worth living. When you look at the too many instances of suicides in our communities, it is always one too much.
 
Very recently (March 2014) an OHL player, Terry Trafford, aged 20, died in the United States of America (US) and his dead body was flown back home to Toronto. Before he died he had been disciplined by his team, sent home from the US to head back to Toronto, while his team continued playing in the US. ``His girlfriend of four years said the OHL player sent her a text message saying 'his life was over' ``
 
Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and many others who died in their prime, very possibly before their time, need not have died. I believe if they had come in contact with the touch they needed, they would still be alive today. This is one of the reasons the book ``Changing Your Identity – When you reach crossroads`` was written. So please give it out to people around you that you come in contact with, today they are making it, tomorrow if they hit a low period, let them know in advance how to handle that curve, make that turn and obtain a transformation back to a sustainable top again, without losing it.
 
Kate Ogg kept hugging her son who had been declared dead by doctors after doctors had tried unsuccessfully for 2 hours to revive the child. After some time the baby began to move, but the nurses said it was just a reflex and it should be ignored. But she kept on giving the Kangaroo hug and the baby subsequently came back to life, opened his eyes and the eyes remained open, he took the breast milk the mother had placed on her finger and also later accepted the breast the mother placed in his mouth. The doctor refused to come back after several calls from the parents to come and see the baby and dismissed it as another reflex to be ignored and only came when the parents sent a message that they have come to terms with the death of the boy and the doctor should please come and explain it to them. The doctor could not believe his eyes, when he placed the stethoscope on the baby’s chest, said: Ì don’t believe this` `I don’t believe this`…the power of a second touch.
 
A second touch is a touch of healing, a touch of transformation and a touch of comfort. It gives you the impetus, strength and direction needed to get you to your high place of encounter that will deliver your much required lifting.
 
Jesus did not need to touch the blind man in Mark 8:22-26 twice, but he did with a `makeover` touch and the previously blind man experienced a makeover. May the touch you need to help you experience your makeover come upon you today in Jesus name!
 
Neuroscientists’ discovered that a touch activates the brain’s cortex, which is linked to feelings of reward.
 
Janice Taylor opined that a touch:
• Signals safety and trust
• Calms the cardiovascular system
• Activates the body’s vagus nerve, which is connected to compassionate response
• Releases oxytocin, a.k.a. the love hormone
• Stimulates the brain’s happy hormones
• Reduces blood pressure
• Reduces pain
• Increases pleasure
• Boosts the immune system
• Lessen symptoms of depression
• Lessen fatigue and irritability
 
A touch can deliver a permanent or temporary change. Elijah was strengthened after a second touch and he was able to embark on a life defining, destiny changing journey. May you receive the touch you need that will spur you unto that journey that enables you to lay hold on the tracks of life in Jesus name! May you receive it today in Jesus mighty name!
 
In Luke 17:11-19, Jesus healed 10 lepers without touching them. He raised Lazarus from the dead without touching him; He also raised the dead son of a widow without touching the boy (Luke 7:11-17). Jesus can heal you without touching you, but when He goes ahead to touch you once that is love and when he does it twice, it is amazing grace. In Mark 8:22-26, Jesus touched the eyes of a blind man twice before the man totally regained his sight – amazing grace!
 
22He came to Bethsaida. They brought a blind man to him, and begged him to touch him. 23He took hold of the blind man by the hand, and brought him out of the village. When he had spit on his eyes, and laid his hands on him, he asked him if he saw anything. 24He looked up, and said, "I see men; for I see them like trees walking." 25Then again he laid his hands on his eyes. He looked intently, and was restored, and saw everyone clearly. 26He sent him away to his house, saying, "Don't enter into the village, nor tell anyone in the village." (Mark 8:22-26)
 
You note that in the celebrated healing of blind Bartimaeus in Mark 10:46-52, Jesus did not touch him or his eyes, he only said `Go your way, your faith has made you whole, immediately Bartimaeus received his sight, so why did he have to touch this unnamed blind man twice. Was his word not good enough? He touches a second time to show you His commitment to you. His unfailing love as recorded in Jeremiah 31:3. If your car starts at the first turn of the key, do you have to turn the key again? You only start it again if the first attempt did not produce the desired result.
 
May every physical and divine `start` you need to jump start your life, family and destiny come upon you today in Jesus name!
 
Note the following, while embarking on your journey after a second touch:
“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will.” ― Vince Lombardi
 
“Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” - Winston Churchill
 
“It’s probably my job to tell you life isn’t fair, but I figure you already know that. So instead, I’ll tell you that hope is precious, and you’re right not to give up.” ― C.J. Redwine
 
“That which does not kill me, makes me stronger.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche
 
“He who can have patience can have what he will.” ― Benjamin Franklin
 
“Everything works out in the end. if it hasn't worked out yet, then it's not the end.” ― Tracy McMillan
 
“I had made up my mind to find that for which I was searching even if it required the remainder of my life. After innumerable failures I finally uncovered the principle for which I was searching, and I was astounded at its simplicity. I was still more astounded to discover the principle I had revealed not only beneficial in the construction of a mechanical hearing aid but it served as well as means of sending the sound of the voice over a wire. Another discovery which came out of my investigation was the fact that when a man gives his order to produce a definite result and stands by that order it seems to have the effect of giving him what might be termed a second sight which enables him to see right through ordinary problems. What this power is I cannot say; all I know is that it exists and it becomes available only when a man is in that state of mind in which he knows exactly what he wants and is fully determined not to quit until he finds it.” ― Alexander Graham Bell
 
In every area of your life where you need a physical or spiritual touch, may the Most High God wrap His mighty hands of love, comfort, healing, deliverance and joy and deliver to you and all yours your much needed touch in Jesus mighty name! Amen! and Amen!! and Amen!!!.
 
Peace!
