“The gentle touch of Jesus is like the summer rain. It refreshes and it cleanses away the guilt and pain. The gentle touch of Jesus, from His almighty hand, is full of strength and power to meet your need this hour.”
Those are the words of a song that I wrote…umm, a very long time ago. Maybe as far back as when dirt was new.
Many times the miraculous work and power of God has rested on me – and in me – as a “gentle touch.”
One of the more recent power miracles administered by the Lord through gentleness was during my wife’s cancer healing.
He could have moved in tumor dissolving obvious power. Instead He navigated me (actually both of us) with a series of gentle touches…that were like the summer rain refreshing and cleansing away the guilt and the pain.
You may be facing circumstances today that need courage. So you think to yourself, “buck up, be strong, stand firm, have some courage, man!”
In fact, you probably think that’s what God expects of you.
God’s power often moves in gentleness as much as in mightiness.
Strength doesn’t always roar. Neither does courage!
Karen Ravn says, “Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the gentle voice at the end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow.”
Is it possible we sometimes (maybe many times) miss God’s voice and acts because he is speaking and acting in gentle ways.
Today I will be sensitive and responsive to the gentle nudges, the brush of angels wings, and the God winks. Because…it’s the little things that are the big things.
