In Jesus - 07-09-2012

Today as I lay in bed I was awoken by the sound of a door being repeatedly opened and closed in my hallway. I lay there slightly frustrated and thinking, *UGGGHHH! Why all the slamming???* I think *Well, it can't go on forever, I'll just lay here and wait* It continues... I asked the Lord a rhetorical question "What are they doing??" I then saw a quick image in my mind's eye of a man's right leg being bent back and forth. In the vision I was telling a man "If you do this, it will help." and then I thought I was commanding healing for his leg. I jump out of bed put on some clothes and head out the door. The door to the storage room opens as I approach it and he is startled slightly. Very politely, I ask if it was him moving stuff in and out of there.
"Yes, why?"
"Well, I was just laying in bed and heard you and wanted to suggest that you could put a door stop here to hold it open and that would help."
"Oh, sorry about that."
"That's ok. This might sound strange but do you have pain or a problem in your leg or knee?"
With a puzzled look on his face "No, why?"
"Well, I am a Christian and sometime God will reveal a person's pain or sickness. Then I can pray for them and He heals them. And while I was laying there thinking 'What is going on out there?' I had an image of a person's right leg and wondered if that was for you."
"No, I don't but incidentally I do have a pain in my right foot."
"Can I show you something?"
"Oh, um, I have to go."
"It will only take a second. Here let me show you. Give me your hand."
He hesitantly gave me his hand and I command the pain to go in Jesus' name. I ask him if it is better and he moves it around. It is slightly better. I point at his foot and repeat the command, this time to leave 100%. He smiles and indicates it has improved some more. He thanks me and turns to leave. I let him go this time.

Even though he was in a rush and seemed to not want to talk, I feel I should have stopped him for just a few more minutes and explained who Jesus was and why that was possible. Hopefully I will meet him again. If not, Holy Spirit will pursue him. I don't think I need to worry too much.
