(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 someone´s life, that
person often falls to his knees and he becomes a person of prayer,
driven to seek the Lord. I´ve 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 Daniel´s 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 God´s
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 Christ´s coming.
