Lay Hands On The Feet!

Jesse Birkey's picture

I encountered a woman the other day who was suffering from neuropathy.  Her feet were angled slightly inward and had lost much of their feeling.  Her toes were bandaged covering sores trying to heal.  She moved with a cane and leaned on it heavily when she walked.

As I talked with the woman, I began to hear the soft voice of the Holy Spirit urging me to pray for her feet.  I felt happy to do it.  She was suffering and I felt a lot of compassion for her.  I figured I would just lay my hand on her shoulder and pray however the Lord directed me to pray. 

I was just about ready to speak when I heard the Lord tell me to lay hands on her feet.  I just stood there for a moment trying to decide if I’d heard right.  I knew I had but I really didn't want to put my hands on her feet. Besides how was I going to approach that? It’s not normal to ask someone if you can lay hands on their feet.  That kind of activity gets a person pepper sprayed.  And let’s be honest.  It’s kind of gross isn’t it?  

But then I thought of Jesus on His hands and knees washing the feet of His disciples.  Can we even imagine how gross their feet were?  Think about the kind of shoes fishermen would wear if any at all.  Their feet were probably nastier than any of our feet have ever been.

But that didn't stop Jesus.  His love for them was greater than the condition of their feet.  He wanted to serve them and a little grime wasn't going to stop Him.  That's a mighty kind of Love!

So I looked at the woman again and asked her if I could put my hands on her feet and pray for them.  She said "yes" without hesitation which surprised me.  I prayed as I felt the Lord lead me to pray.

When I was done I asked her if anything felt different.  She was wide eyed and told me that when I was praying she felt shocks going through her feet.  The sensations were great enough to cause her to open her eyes and look down.

I asked her to stand up and see if anything felt different.  She stood up and without the assistance of her cane walked back and forth in front of me with a look of amazement on her face.  She even bent over and picked up a can off of the ground just to see if she could do it and she did without problem.

She left that day carrying her cane instead of using it.  We must not let outward circumstances prevent us from loving as Jesus did and does today.  Our model continues to point us to life.  If Jesus did it then we should be doing it too!

Blessings,

Jesse and Kara Birkey

Counseled by God

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 146 Pages

Have you ever been defeated by negative emotions such as anger, fear, guilt, inferiority, condemnation or depression? Have you tried to fight them off unsuccessfully? Is there an answer that is deeper than simply trying to mentally reason yourself out of these emotions? Is there a way that Jesus can speak a word of life into the depths of your emotional despair and bring healing on a deep level? Is there a form of Christian counseling that begins and ends with the movement of Christ within your heart, rather than simply with the words of man?
