We were having some work done on our home and had a guy come out to seal our air ducts. He finished and I paid him. As he got out the door, I realized that I hadn't talked to him about The Lord, it was an opportunity lost. Then I hear a knock at my door. He had forgotten to seal the main unit! Wow! As he went back to his truck to get his supplies, I prayed for God to tell me something about him. I heard Him say "he has a sister in poor health". I tread carefully here because I never know if my imagination is just running wild. He came back in and we talked about church for a moment, then I asked him if he had a sister. He said that he does. Then I asked him if she was in poor health. He said "yes she is, and I worry about that all the time. How did you know that"? Then I told him "I asked God to tell me something about you". I was then able to minister to him, pray for his sister, and encourage him to get back in church and turn his life over to Jesus. It was the Holy Spirit planting seeds. Not only did I get to minister to this man, but God encouraged me and strengthened my faith. When you get confirmation that God is that close, all you want to do is get on your face! I couldn't help but cry tears of pure joy!
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. James 1:5-6
