When we much younger we remember the story of King Midas and his golden touch? He made a wish that everything he touched would turn into gold, and his wish came to pass. He touched his food, the trees in his garden and his palace, and they all turned into gold!
Then, he hugged his daughter whom he loved very much and she immediately turned into a gold statue! He became very sad because he could not reverse it. His daughter has became a property and no longer a being where he express his love.
God’s way is better and it has no side effects. He wants to bless everything you touch. The Bible says, “The Lord will command the blessing on you…and in all to which you set your hand…” This means that whatever you touch, whatever you set your hands to, God will command the blessing upon it, be it a person, thing or business. So if you touch your child, he is blessed. If you touch your musical instrument, anointed music flows forth. If you touch your business, it prospers. When you touch a sick person, he gets healed. When you touch someone who is facing lack, his needs are met.
The Ark of God was placed in the home of Obed-Edom when King David could not successfully retrieve back to Jerusalem. The ark of God remained with Obed-Edom for three months, and the Lord blessed his household and everything he owned. The presence of God was the reason for his success and not because he was a man of faith. He was a gentile who was not familiar with the law for covenant success.
Now the temple is no longer in the holy of holies in the Mosaic tabernable. We are now the temples of God. He lives in you in the fullness of His abundance. We can now expect the blessings to show up wherever we go because we are now the temple and Jesus in us being the mercy seat is the reason for God to honour his covenant in our lives.
Everyone whom Jesus touched received a blessing. And because Jesus lives in you by His Spirit, what you touch this week and in your life 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!
Now we have the true Midas touch because the finished work is the key that unlocks the blessings. It is no longer based on our striving but on the perfect obedience of Jesus at the cross. Expect good things wherever you go. You are a blessing going somewhere to happen.
“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.”
