Expectancy: “The Master’s Touch”


“If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole” (Mark 5:28).
Expectancy is defined as the state of thinking or hoping that something, usually pleasant, will happen. It is the anticipatory belief or desire of something that is expected.
“Expectancy is the atmosphere for miracles. “A lady that is expecting in the natural indicates that a birth is forthcoming. Truly, childbirth is a miracle…a new creation. The woman with the issue of blood in Mark 5:28 expected a miracle. If she touched Jesus, with expectancy, then surely she knew that He would touch her with a miracle.
Humans possess five natural  senses: sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch. “Touch” places us in direct contact with our world. When we touch something, we become closely involved with it. We touch thousands of things every day in our lives without even thinking about it. We touch objects. We even affect change in the objects, or even the people, we touch. But there is nothing more powerful than the touch of God!
Jesus touched a leper, and he was healed. His touch changed “Jacob” (deceiver) into “Israel” (A prince having power with God). His touch changed Moses from a murderer to a leader. His touch can remove sicknesses. His touch can raise the dead. His touch can heal blinded eyes. His touch can unstop deaf ears. His touch can lift up the down and out. His touch can change us on the inside. His touch can make all things well on the outside! If you are expecting, then God desires to birth something great in this season…a new beginning!
Are you seeking God with EXPECTANCY? Touch God in your prayer, and He will touch you in His power!
