Finger of God

By Larry R. Lasiter

2010

 "When He had finished speaking with him upon Mount Sinai, He gave Moses the two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written by the finger of God." Exodus 31:18

 God could have simply instructed Moses to write the Commandments down like He did the Book of the Law, but He chose to write them into stone with His own finger. The Book of the Law which was comprised of additional laws which were added because of transgressions were written onto animal skins and placed on the outside of the Ark of the Covenant while the stone tablets were placed inside under the Mercy Seat.

 I had an experience with the finger of God once. We were holding tent crusades in Clarksville, Arkansas in December of 2007 and a young woman came even though she was down in her back and was unable to walk or even stand. They laid her on a blanket in the back of the tent and that is where she stayed during the entire service. After the service one of our members came and told me that someone needed to be anointed for healing and was waiting in the back.

 When I got there some of the Church members had stood her up and were waiting to join me in prayer. I took my olive oil out and poured it on both of my hands, then I placed my left hand on her head and put my right hand on the small of her back just under her shirt. As I prayed we all began to feel the sweet but powerful presence of God.

 The Lord moved me to just continue to lift her need up in prayer and as I prayed I began to feel movement under her skin there on the small of her back. As the sensation got stronger I could actually feel the finger of God in a circular movement on the small of her back. I didn't look but I believe that the form of God's finger would have been visible because I was feeling it in three dimension.

Her mother was there and also had her hand on her back and when I said, -"I feel the finger of God!" she said, -"I feel it too!" The young woman was standing but was bent over in pain until that moment - then she literally bolted upright and jumped and began shouting, -"I am healed! I am healed" "Praise God, He healed me!" "Thank you, thank you, thank you, Lord!"

 We all erupted in praise and a mini praise and worship service spontaneously happened there in the back of our tent on a cold December night. There was plenty of shouting, crying and rejoicing!

  It is so hard to get people to come to a tent crusade even in good weather so we had considered canceling that service because of the cold but decided to push through anyway. It resulted in God meeting us there for a glorious service and a much needed healing. Our tent has sides and is even centrally heated, but most people do not know that and few will brave the conditions to come in bad weather. But for those who do, sometimes it touches the heart of God so deeply that He is moved to move.

 This young woman endured the pain and the weather and pressed through into His presence and was blessed and healed by the very finger of God. Had either of us had taken the easier, well-traveled road and decided to stay in the comfort of our homes, God would have been denied the glory of this healing testimony.
