I am preparing tonight to go on the road tomorrow to Arizona, for a weekend ministry event known as Tres Dias. Tres Dias is a weekend of reflection, and truly witnessing the love and service of the Kingdom. But that’s all I can tell you…If you want to know more about it, you have to attend it to see for yourself.
In preparing for my road trip tomorrow, I had to go to my local grocery store to get some last minute items. As I am walking the store, I see several people that could use ministry for healing. Being the coward that I am, I prayed quietly for them, instead of offering prayer to them personally. As I walked around the store, I began to feel bad that I am in disobedience to the Boss, and I was trying to block it out. Eventually, I passed a woman in a motorized scooter and had a perfect opportunity to minister. I passed yet again.
Once she left the aisle and I was by myself, I began to pray out loud. I said, “God, I admit I am a _______, and I keep failing at this. I apologize, I am sorry, and I need you build up something in me where I reach that point.” After getting that off of my chest, I finished my shopping trip, and went to the self-service checkouts. I overhead the attendant say that she was having all kinds of neck pain, and she was making a fuss about it. Again, I hesitated.
As I was checking out, a couple items that should scan easily, wouldnt scan, and required about three visits from the attendant. Each time, I had to fight my pride and my fear. Finally, I asked, “Did you say that your neck hurt?” She replied that it did, and that its been hurting all day. I suddenly got bold and said, “I am a healing minister, and I can make that stop if you want?” She looked at me puzzled and asked if I could really do that. I said I could, and I i asked her to point out the area in pain….
I laid one finger on the spot on her neck where the pain was, gave about three sentences worth of commands, and told the pain to go. I asked her to try it out and the look of shock on her face was priceless. She had no clue how to react to the pain leaving. After a long pause, she went to the register, and began adjusting my checkout items. She suddenly looked up and exclaimed loudly, “The Pain is Gone!”
She asked how this worked, and it gave me a chance to minister. I told her that God loves her and cares for her so much, that he wanted her to be free of pain; whether she went to church or not. She kept stating that she was “Tripping Out” about it, and was totally in shock over it.
She gave me several handshakes, and I went on my way. I feel so grateful to serve a God who still honors me despite the fact that I just failed several times, moments earlier. That is how good He is. That is why I serve Him. Because He is the real deal, and He keeps His word….ALWAYS! Boom Goes Yeshua!!
