As Christians, we can find opportunities to preach the Gospel and pray for fellow brothers and sisters in need everywhere! All you need is a little discernment – mixed with some boldness. The secret ingredient to both is practice!
I don’t get it right 100% of the time… but I give 100% every time God opens a door for me to walk through and minister to someone. My aim is to make the most of every opportunity He presents to me. People are more open to being ministered to more than you would think… especially at the moment in history in which we find ourselves.
Recently, at one of my son’s wrestling matches, I found myself sitting amongst the “opposition”. Would you believe that God opened a door for me to talk to the parent sitting next to me? After some good discussion back and forth, this mother asked me to talk to her 18-year-old son. I thought, “What do I have to say to an 18-year-old young man?” As he walked over, I heard Holy Spirit clearly say to me, “Be interested in him and what he wants to do.”
Well, being obedient to the Holy Spirit’s leading culminated in me laying hands on him along with his Mom and Dad! Yes, right there in the middle of a Middle School wrestling match I was able to pray and prophesy over this precious, young man!
Over the years of living a life of ministry, I have only encountered one person who refused my offer to pray for them! I have seen the Lord meet people right where their faith was and it has caused my own faith to grow at the same time.
I have nothing “more” or “greater” than you… I am simply willing to take that “step of faith”. So, if you are reading this, I want to challenge you to step out in faith and allow God to use you. Over time you will also stand in amazement in just how much He uses you – just the way you are!!!
