As I'm getting ready to leave for Germany, I headed over to the AT&T store to get my phone plan upgraded for the trip. As I was there talking with the customer care agent, Darla, the Holy Spirit gave me a word of knowledge about a condition in her body. I asked Darla about this condition, and she said, "How did you know that?"
I told her that sometimes I get pictures and impressions for people and that I'm a Christian. She looked at me a bit perplexed and intrigued. I asked what her pain level was on a scale from 1 to 10, and she said an 8. "Do you mind if I pray for you?"
"Let's go sit down. I don't want to make this awkward for you. No one will even know that we are praying. It will look like we are just talking, and I'll pray for you." So we went to sit down, and I began to speak to the pain, telling it to go. I told her she would begin to feel a warm, tingly presence come over her body as a sign that the Lord was healing her.
Then I asked her to move her body around. I asked where the pain level was. She looked at me and said, "No more pain. It's all gone!" I grabbed her hand, looked her in the eye, and said, "This was the love of Jesus for you."
She looked at me, surprised that the pain was gone, and thanked me. As we were walking out she said, "That was amazing!"
Remember the kingdom of God is always at hand, even when you are going about your day! Our job is to simply look, listen, and respond to His activity and put JESUS on display with love and power.
