Stories of a good God

Each year at about this time my husband and I have a two night stay in town.

The purpose of this is two fold: 1. we get to dream and talk to each other about what the year ahead will look like for the family and 2. we buy him clothing items on sale in town to fill out his work wardrobe.

Funnily enough, God often has a few assignments for us to fulfil too … and a delight they are in our relaxed unhurried state at this time of year … a reminder that our paths and footsteps are known and planned by Him.

This year we had a dinner or two booked, a movie booked and a shopping list which included a few shirts, a couple of pairs of pants and some shoes …

On the first morning we had enjoyed a quiet unhurried breakfast and were making our way out of the breakfast area of the hotel when we thanked the girl that had seated us and I completed my first assignment …

She had sat us down and as she had I knew I had to  offer to pray, and so as we left I offered and as I did her eyes grew large and damp and she accepted …

I introduced myself, held her hand and started to pray and as I did I started to received words f knowledge about her situation … I asked her about the and she gulped, saying “yes, yes” that is right …

She had suffered betrayal, hurt, sadness, had immigration issues, (she was Hungarian) and was not yet doing what her heart desired ….

And so, I called forth her destiny … I declared her destiny open in the name of Jesus, released healing of a broken heart, called forth favour, joy, peace and wisdom …

I saw her sitting in a waiting room and told her as such.  I saw her then standing and opening double doors into sunshine and I told her so … and big tears rolled down her cheeks …

I said I felt that she was in a waiting and healing time, that she was not to rush this period of time, but that it would soon pass, but that it was a time of healing, quiet and peace, that God wanted her to be healed and whole, I then said, that soon, very soon, the time would come when she would walk into her destiny, the promises, and that she would, like in the vision step into sunshine …

She looked at me and said shakily “can I hug you?”

“Of course”, I replied and I gently wrapped my arms around her and we stood at the entrance of the restaurant, me holding her in my arms and her tears gently dropping onto my shoulder …

She said she was a Christian and I asked where she went to church … she didn’t so I recommended she find one near where she lived, I gave her my number, the name of my church, and said she needed fellow Christians to walk with her and pray with her … a body of people to care for her … and I told her to feel free to call me to help her find a body of believers to plug into …

I then left saying “God loves you so very much …” and I left with her standing, tears still dripping down her face …

I wanted to fix it all for her …

I wanted immediate action, healing, clarity, resolution for her …

I felt so helpless leaving her there, knowing she needed a group of people to support her, pray for her, that she was so young, knowing, sensing that she had such deep hurts …

But I knew my job was to pray as led, and to leave the rest to her free will and God …

I was to leave the door open to her contacting me, and to leave her feeling loved …

Her destiny was open, the healing had been released, God was clearly pursuing her, the favour would now come … 

I knew that was all I could do … I knew that what I was to do was to trust that what He had asked me to do was enough … it was not my place to make any of it to happen … unless He asked me to … I knew that the rest was between her and God …

I reminded myself …

My job is to pray, obey, and release …

Her job is to decide …

The rest remains with God …

And you know, for that I am truly grateful because if I tried to fix it all in my own strength, the way I felt I could, I knew I would potentially mess it up … but if I left it to God, I knew the outcome would be marvellous, wonderful, incredible, a great testimony because …

God is Good!

To be continued …

    • Thank you! I think she has no doubt that God loves her! The power of words of knowledge (which i know you know) are such that the person knows you could know no other way and combined with the anointing, the presence of God in a tangible way, she will not forget … I trust she will be ok.
