I just wanted to share a short story of a couple of experiences I have had that I felt I should share in appreciation to God and thankfulness for His faithfulness in showing up and doing awesome stuff on such a consistent basis that it is simply mind boggling.
What happened? Honestly, not much really. In fact I have had so many times of experiencing God speaking through the word of knowledge that I hardly think of it much these days.
I was in a meeting with Plumbline Ministries here in Colorado at a local Vineyard Church. The class was on the prophetic, so at the end we usually pair off in twos or threes and pray for one another. I had a chance to pray with a young man who was a complete stranger to me, being new to the class. God gave me Romans 1:15-18 to pray over him and Psalm 139. I said that I thought God was bringing this young man through a transition where He was releasing the hope, inheritance and power mentioned in the Romans verse and a great level of deep wisdom and revelation. I then said that God was showing him his identity as in the verses from some sections in Psalm 139, that God knows him and watches over him. The young man confirmed to me that he was indeed in a transition in life and that the two scriptures I used to minister to him were the scriptures that God had given him to meditate on in the last season and in the new season, Psalm 139 being the old season and Romans 1 being the new.
Honestly now, the Bible is a big book, with thousands of inspiring verses in it’s sixty six books. So what do you think the odds are that one person would randomly pick the two exact verses from another person’s spiritual study?
And then a while back I met with a friend Ryan. Here is my journal recollection of the meeting:
I met with my friend and co-worker Ryan this morning and we had a great time together. We talked a lot about calling and leadership, and even missions. Ryan said he has a heart for missions in Africa, and I shared that my concern was to re-evangelize the West. I encouraged him to be the man of God he is called to and his wife, Elena, would follow.
