  • God-touched servants


    by David Wilkerson

    Daniel testified, "Suddenly, a hand touched me, which made me

    tremble on my knees and on the palms of my hands" (Daniel 10:10).

    The word for "touched" here means to violently seize upon. Daniel

    was saying, "When God placed his hand on me, it put me on my

    face; his touch filled me with an urgency to seek him with all that is in me."

    God-touched servants have an intimate relationship with Lord.

    They receive revelations from heaven and enjoy a walk with Christ

    that few others do. Whenever God touches someoneīs life, that

    person often falls to his knees and he becomes a person of prayer,

    driven to seek the Lord. Iīve often wondered why God touches only

    certain people with this urgency. Why do some servants become

    hungry seekers after him while other faithful people go on their way?

    Daniel, a devoted servant, was touched by God in a supernatural

    way. There were many other good, pious people serving the Lord

    in Danielīs day. These included Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego

    and tens of thousands of other Israelites who maintained their

    faith while enslaved in Babylon.

    So, why did God lay his hand on Daniel and touch him as he

    did? Why was this one man able to see and hear things no one

    else could? "I, Daniel, alone saw the vision, for the men who

    were with me did not see the vision" (Daniel 10:7). The vision

    Daniel saw was Jesus himself, clear and vivid. In fact, it was the

    same vision given to John on the Isle of Patmos (see Revelation 1:13-15).

    The Lord revealed himself to Daniel in the way he did because

    this young man was consumed with a passion to know Godīs

    heart. Also, God decided the time had come to deliver a message

    to lost humanity and he needed a voice to speak his message.

    The Lord is looking for those today who are consumed with

    knowing him and will grieve over the moral condition in our society

    - while also eagerly looking for Christīs coming
