January.24.14 (shared from Bethel website - link is on our connections tab on TGN website)
I was out front of a shopping center in Redding and felt I was to stop a nicely dressed man, who had gotten out of a nice car.
I said, "God wants me to pray for you about a relationship that you are in right now."
He looked puzzled and said, "Actually, my girlfriend and I are having bad problems. "
I asked, "Would you mind if I prayed for you?"
I prayed and the Lord downloaded the rest. I told him about his childhood and how he used to speak to God when he was a kid and how the Lord remembers that he used to pray to Him when he was a child.
He began to get tears in his eyes. I said, "God is even going to help you in the next six months purchase a new house." By the grace of God, everything I said was correct to touch this man.
He started crying and said, "I did use to pray as a child. I walked away from God, and now I don't even know if there is a God." He wanted to walk away but couldn't.
He was a wealthy fifty-something businessman visiting from a big city. He was so thankful. The experience was so powerful.
I asked him to promise me something. "Promise that from this day onward, you will begin talking to Jesus all the time and seeking God." He said, "Yes, I will."
You never know how much impact you will have by saying hello to someone, and God brings all the words you need when you just say yes to God.
