“While he was saying all this, I looked at the ground and said nothing. Then I was surprised by something like a human hand that touched my lips. I opened my mouth and started talking to the messenger: ‘When I saw you, master, I was terror-stricken. My knees turned to water. I couldn’t move. How can I, a lowly servant, speak to you, my master? I’m paralyzed. I can hardly breathe!’
“Then this humanlike figure touched me again and gave me strength. He said, ‘Don’t be afraid, friend. Peace. Everything is going to be all right. Take courage. Be strong.’
“Even as he spoke, courage surged up within me. I said, ‘Go ahead, let my master speak. You’ve given me courage.’” Daniel 10:15-19 Message Bible
As I was reading this there were two things that struck me; 1. His touch brought strength and 2. He called Daniel friend. I don’t know that I’ve ever experienced this type of intimacy and friendship with the Spirit of God before, but I can tell you it’s way up there on my bucket list.
If you look on Daniels life, you will see that he prioritized the Word and prayer more than anything else. He wasn’t concerned with wealth, fame, acceptance or anything this world had to offer. He was only determined to know God.
The Bible is very clear that those who seek Him with their whole heart will find Him. It wasn’t just for those of times past, it’s for us now. ANYONE. He didn’t exclude you. If you prioritize what’s valuable to God, you will find Him in every area of your life. His favor will be on your life and He will provide answers to your questions. He’s not illusive, He’s tangible. Reach out and touch Him today.
