Have you ever watched sunlight caress a mountain? It moves over it slowly … steadily … possessively … eventually spreading its light and warmth into every possible crevice. It rests there as long as possible … moving away unwillingly … continuing to stretch itself … reaching out with lingering fingers of light … trying to maintain contact as long as possible. That’s the way God touches those He loves. Let Him touch you today.
When I think of “hands,” one of the first things that comes to mind is the cover of my book Healing Is For You! The artwork for the front cover, reminiscent of the theme immortalised by Michaelangelo, is actually a portion of an original work by artist David Davis (House of David, Christopher, Illinois.) Since there is no hand as powerful, as tender, as creative, as victorious, or as life-giving as the hand of God Himself, I couldn’t think of any picture more appropriate for this week’s theme than one depicting God’s healing hand reaching down to touch the hand of His creation.
