What you touch, God blesses

The LORD will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the LORD your God is giving you. Deuteronomy 28:8

Brother Kenneth Hagin has a book called “The Midas touch”. He relates the story of a King who wished that everything he touched would turn to gold, and his wish came to pass. He started touching things like his food and things around his palace and they turned to gold. He touched his daughter and she turned into gold. Obviously, he regretted ever wishing for such a thing not knowing the negative consequences of it.  

God has a better way and there are not any negative side effects. God so wants to bless everything you touch. Our scripture text says, “The Lord will command the blessing on you… and in all to which you set your hand.” This means that whatever you touch, God will command the blessing on it. So, if you touch your child, they are blessed. If you touch a musical instrument, the music will be anointed. If you touch your business, it will prosper. And when you touch a sick person, they will get healed. When you touch someone who has financial needs, those needs will be met.  

In Jesus’ ministry on Earth, everything He touched prospered. He touched the eyes of two blind men and their eyes were opened (Matthew 9:28-30). He touched the coffin of a widow’s son, and the young man sat up and began to speak (Luke 7:12-15). He touched the leper and the leprosy departed (Mark 1:40-42). Under the old covenant laws, no one was supposed to touch a leper as they were considered unclean. If you touched the unclean, you became unclean. But Jesus touched the leper and the unclean became clean.

Again, everything Jesus touched received a blessing. And because Jesus lives in you by His Spirit, what you touch will be blessed too. He paid the price for you to have this blessing. His loving hands which imparted blessings to so many were nailed to the cross so that today, God can command His blessing on all to which you set your hands. This is a powerful truth to learn and practice in your life.
