Mar 19 Devotion: Fresh Touch

Fresh Touch

Job 29:1-20 – “Moreover Job continued his parable, and said, 2 Oh that I were as in months past, as in the days when God preserved me; 3 When his candle shined upon my head, and when by his light I walked through darkness; 4 As I was in the days of my youth, when the secret of God was upon my tabernacle; 5 When the Almighty was yet with me, when my children were about me; 6 When I washed my steps with butter, and the rock poured me out rivers of oil; 7 When I went out to the gate through the city, when I prepared my seat in the street! 8 The young men saw me, and hid themselves: and the aged arose, and stood up. 9 The princes refrained talking, and laid their hand on their mouth. 10 The nobles held their peace, and their tongue cleaved to the roof of their mouth. 11 When the ear heard me, then it blessed me; and when the eye saw me, it gave witness to me: 12 Because I delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless, and him that had none to help him. 13 The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me: and I caused the widow’s heart to sing for joy. 14 I put on righteousness, and it clothed me: my judgment was as a robe and a diadem. 15 I was eyes to the blind, and feet was I to the lame. 16 I was a father to the poor: and the cause which I knew not I searched out. 17 And I brake the jaws of the wicked, and plucked the spoil out of his teeth. 18 Then I said, I shall die in my nest, and I shall multiply my days as the sand. 19 My root was spread out by the waters, and the dew lay all night upon my branch. 20 My glory was fresh in me, and my bow was renewed in my hand.”

Intro – Reading these verses, Job is asking for a fresh touch. I find myself asking for this also.

Examples – Elijah, Isaiah, Saul’s men, Jacob – all got a fresh touch

Note some touches we need—

  1. The Initial Touch – Personal Regeneration

  2. The Intimate Touch – Personal Relationship

  3. The Involving Touch – Personal Responsibility

  4. The Indwelling Touch – Personal Rejoicing

  5. The Illuminating Touch – Personal Revelation

How fresh Touch comes – The Word, Prayer, Others, Spirit
