Yesterday, while hanging out in the Bus Depot with friends just to stir up as much heaven as possible, we got a chance to pray for and bless this soft-spoken amazing young mother. While praying for her, the baby jumped around super energetically. Another John the Baptist? When we were done with her, we went on to meet another gal who was visiting from LA. As we talked with her she agreed to allow us to pray for her but was not specific. As we did so, one of us gave her a word of encouragement about creativity and her being in the process of growing in its expression. Her eyes lit up and she answered that she was a dancer who had been trying to break into “the dance scene.” She was open to Gods love and purpose for her, and we encouraged her to let Him into her life. Then we had a long conversation with a homeless veteran who told us that he had been diagnosed with PTSD. His eyes teared up and he visibly reacted muttering something like, “We were never…” when one of us thanked him for his service and welcomed him home. Then he quickly changed the subject saying, “That was a long time ago.” We shared His love with each other after discovering that we all share the same good Father.
In Acts 10:38 we read that, “…God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. Then Jesus went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.” We want to be just like Him so we try and do the same. Sometimes as we love people we do see amazing healings and even have confrontations with powers of darkness, but other times we just “go around doing good.” The pay is the same for obedience out of love.
