"I am amazed right now" - In Jesus - 08-17-2014

After church today I stopped in at Walmart to buy some food for the week and walked past the milk and yogurt isle fairly quickly. Out of the corner of my eye I thought I saw a girl with a cast or brace on one of her arms. I turned back to go down the isle and see, and met with Miranda (I think was her name). I stopped in front of her and said "Hey there. What happened to you?", pointing at her arm. Her mom rolled up behind her with a cart at this point and stood by us watching and listening. I nodded and smiled hello to her. After finding out what happened (I forget what she said to be honest, I think she said she broke it and how) I said something to the effect of "I pray for people and Jesus heals them, and wanted to know if you'd like me to pray for you." She was very open to the invitation and said sure. I asked what the pain level was at and found that it was a 6 out of 10. 10 being the worst. I asked to take her hand and she handed it to me. I spoke to her hand and commanded all pain to leave and for it to be healed in the name of Jesus. I asked her how it was doing. She was surprised and said that it was actually better and not throbbing any longer. She said it was probably about a 3 out of 10 now. I asked to pray again and took her hand once more. I thought to ask specifically where the break was and she informed me it was the metacarpals. I commanded all her metacarpals to be mended, and all pain to go once more. This time she said the pain was all gone and she could move her fingers freely. She looked at her mom with a surprised look on her face and repeated that she couldn't feel any pain any longer. Her mom seemed very indifferent. I started to share the gospel with her and her mother walked away. After my spiel, Miranda informed me that she was a believer already and was baptized. haha! She didn't stop me at all. Usually someone will nod yes to what I am saying or indicate somehow that they already know what I am saying or agree with me in some way. I found that funny. I then shared with her that she could do the same thing and why and how. She said she has heard of this kind of thing happening before but never witnessed it for herself. Her comment that I remember most was "I am amazed right now." I love seeing the Lord change someone's paradigm. Jesus You rock!

I continued through the store grabbing the rest of my items and then noticed a man up ahead with two canes and a mask on his face walking with his wife. Honestly, I was trying to avoid them because I had my hands full and wanted to get going. When I walked to the next side of the isle, they walked to the same side. haha! I gave in and asked him what was up. He said he had fibromyalgia and chemical sensitivities. I explained what I do and he welcomed the prayer right away. He let me lay hands on him and command all sickness and any spirits of infirmity to go from him in Jesus' name. He didn't see a difference at that time, but we both agreed it may be something he sees later. I shared with him how I have seen that before too. I got to talk with them in the quick lane check out line (whatever you call it). I shared with them how I had just prayed for Miranda and the Lord took her pain away. He informed me that he sees opportunities to minister to others who are dealing with the same things he is, so I prayed for him to receive the faith and grace to see others healed through his prayers. It was just before my cashier opened up so I didn't get to share too much.

Leaving the store walking through the doorway I met another man who had a brace on his wrist. After asking him what happened he said he had a fight with a trailer. I asked if I could pray for him real quick but he started to walk away from me quickly and said "Nope, I'm good."

You must know that there is so much joy in ministering to others and seeing the Lord use you to bring freedom and truth to others. I encourage you to step out and risk your own comfort. You will find that it's what you were created for.

Grace, peace and love in Jesus Christ!
