Some people brought to him a man who was deaf and could hardly talk. They begged Jesus just to touch him. After Jesus had taken him aside from the crowd, he stuck his fingers in the man's ears. Then he spit and put it on the man's tongue. Jesus looked up toward heaven, and with a groan he said, “Effatha!” which means “Open up!” At once the man could hear, and he had no more trouble talking clearly. Jesus told the people not to say anything about what he had done. But the more he told them, the more they talked about it. They were completely amazed and said, “Everything he does is good! He even heals people who cannot hear or talk.”
Mark 7:32-37 - CEV
These verses tell the story of a man who could not hear and could barely talk when some people brought him to Jesus! They only asked Jesus to touch the man! Jesus did touch the man and he was healed!
In a real way every man and woman who is alive today on planet earth is both deaf and cannot speak! Until Jesus touches you, you cannot hear the things of God and you certainly cannot talk about them! But when the Lord Jesus puts His fingers in your ears and puts His own saliva on your tongue you can hear the things of God with perfect clarity and you can speak about them as well!
When you encounter Jesus in your life, it is better to simply ask that He touch you rather than asking for healing! His "Will" is so much better than your "Wants." Let Jesus have His way with you! You will never regret it!
"Lord Jesus, I am in need of healing, but much more than that I need to be touched by You today! Everything You do Lord Jesus is Good! May Your Holy and righteous Name be praised now and forever. Amen."
