He is willing

"When he came down form the mountainside, large crowds followed him. A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, 'Lord, if you are willing you can make me clean.' Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man.'I am willing,' he said. 'Be clean!' Immediately he was cured of his leprosy. Then Jesus said to him, 'See that you don't tell anyone. But go, show yourself to the priest and offer the gift Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.'"
                                                                                           Matthew 8:1-4

I think there are times in our lives when we question whether the Lord is willing to touch us and intervene in certain circumstances. We may have feelings of guilt because of something we have done to create a disaster and we wonder if the Lord would be willing to touch that situation and make it whole.

But just as Jesus was willing to heal this leper He is willing to reach out and touch the "messes" that we may have created. He is willing to get involved and touch the areas that desperately need His healing touch. We only need to trust that He is willing.

Lord Jesus, I thank you that you do not turn us away when we need You. You are willing to be involved in the smallest detail of our lives and You are willing to make us whole again when we have created a mess. I ask now that You would touch the areas that need healing in my life and make them whole. I Thank You, in Jesus name, amen.
