Whatever God Touches Flourishes
And God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning – the sixth day. Genesis 1:31
God created the world in six days. Each of these six days, he accomplished some act or acts of creation. On the sixth day, he created man. Each day he reflected upon what he had done and saw that what he had created was good. But after he formed man, his response was that this creation was very good. This shows me that whatever God touches flourishes. It also reveals the heart of God towards man. Although Adam and Eve fell, God sent his Son to restore what we lost through the fall.
If we look at the creation story closely, we will discover that God spoke the world into existence. He said let there be light and light was. He said let the waters teem with life and they did. And so it was with all his creation. But when he made man, he formed him from the earth then he breathed life into him. So when it came to man, God physically created him with his hands. After this, God saw that what he had made was very good.
Those of us who have embraced Christ as our Savior, have been made new by God on the inside. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” God has touched us. We are children of the King. In 1994, a band called The Halo Benders named their first album, God Don't Make No Junk. There is great truth to that. When God touches you, you are transformed into a new person. And he is bringing us from glory to glory, as we behold him and invite him to change us.
When our Lord places his hands on something or someone, he cause that thing or person to thrive. When we invite Jesus into our situation through prayer and obedience to his word, the Lord causes that area of our lives to prosper. We may not see the fruition of it right away, but like a seed that is faithfully tended to, we will witness our negative circumstance bow to the power of Almighty God. We will see God's promises over our lives come to pass, because whatever God touches flourishes.
My friend, if you are in need of a touch from God whether in your heart, your mind, your body, your family, or your finances; please pray this prayer with me....
Dear Father God,
