Point of Contact: Definition

In customer service, a point of contact is the person who is in charge of a special task. However, the point of contact in this article is a little different. In biblical and theological terms, a point of contact is something a person does to release his faith. It is the first thing done to get things moving in the right direction.

According to the late Oral Roberts, a point of contact sets the time and place for the start of a miracle. It is the method used to release your faith to put your blessing into motion.

Biblical Examples of a Point of Contact

In the Bible, there are many different examples of men and women who used a point of contact to release their faith so God could work in their lives. You might be familiar with some of them.

  • David had a slingshot, but it could not make Goliath fall over on his face until the young lad used it as a point of contact. (1 Samuel 17:49-51)
  • Moses had a staff but it was not his point of contact until he released his faith by stretching it out and the Red Sea parted. (Exodus 14:21)
  • As soon as the priests touched their feet into the Jordan River, they released their faith and the Israelites were able to walk across on dry land. (Joshua 3:15-16)
  • When the woman with the issue of blood touched the hem of Jesus' garment, it became her point of contact, and she was healed after bleeding for 12 years. (Matthew 9:21)

For she said to herself, "If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well." (Matthew 9:21)

God will honor any point of contact that you use to release your faith. Your point of contact is anything you do in the natural that serves as a way to release your faith in the spirit realm. The very moment you use your point of contact, you set things in motion for miracles to happen.


If you want something miraculous to happen in your life right now, then do something. Use a point of contact. Flip the switch to release your faith. Turn something on. Unlock something. Make something move.
