Jesus Is an Easy Touch By Gloria Copeland

Jesus Healed Bartimaeus in an unusual way.
Someone might say, “Now wait a minute. The healing of Bartimaeus alone doesn’t prove Jesus always responded like that. It’s just one incident.”
I know it, but if I had time and space here I could give you many, many others. I could tell you about the leper in Matthew 8 who came to Jesus and worshiped him, saying, “Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean” (verse 2).
Do you know what Jesus’ response was to him? “I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed” (verse 3). I could tell you about the centurion who had a sick servant and came to Jesus, saying, “Lord…speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed” (verse 8).
Jesus didn’t say to that man, “Now, listen here. I’m the One Who decides what needs to happen in these situations and I think I need to go lay My hands on that servant.” No, he simply did what the centurion asked Him to do. He said, “Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour”(verse 13).
I could tell you about Jairus, who fell at Jesus ‘feet “And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live” (Mark 5:23).
Even though that little girl died before Jesus arrived, He still did exactly what that man said. He took her by the hand, healed her and raised her from the dead!
I could tell you about the woman who had an issue of blood for 12 years and said to herself, “If I may touch but [Jesus’] clothes, I shall be whole“(verse 28). No doubt by now, even if you haven’t read the story, you can guess what happened to that woman. She was healed when she touched Jesus’ clothes, just like she said she’d be! And He said to her, “Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague” (verse 34).
Do you see how easy Jesus was to deal with back then? He’s just as easy to deal with now! He is easily touched with the feeling of our infirmities (Hebrews 4:15). Whatever they said that’s what Jesus said and did. And whatever you say with your mouth and believe with your heart, He’ll do for you! How do I know? Because He’s the same Jesus.
Whatever you need from Him today—whether it’s healing in your body, deliverance from oppression, devils, drugs, pornography or anything else that has attached itself to your life—Jesus is saying, What can I do for you? What is it that you want from Me?
If you need money in your bank account, Jesus can handle it. He knows how to get you money. If you’ll give Him faith, and you’ll give Him words to work with, He’ll get you whatever you need. If you need your children to come into the kingdom of God, Jesus knows how to rescue them. He knows how to bring in your children. He’s saying, What can I do for you today?
Whatever you want, ask for it. Believe you receive it, and put it in your mouth! Start saying what you want Jesus to bring to pass. This same Jesus! Jesus Christ, the Anointed One, the same yesterday, today and forever, wants to move in your life. He wants to remove the burdens and destroy the yokes the devil has used to oppress you. He wants to bless you and deliver to you the profusely abounding favors of the Lord.
That was His ministry 2,000 years ago. It’s still His ministry today. That’s what He does everyday, 24 hours a day.
Call on Him in faith and let Him do it for you. He is the same, wonderful Jesus!
