[RISK No. 56]
I saw David walking back and forth holding a sign that says “Need Food. God love” just outside the 99 cents store parking lot. I thought “well let me buy him some food and then I can go and buy what I need from the store. I approached him and said, “let me buy you some food is a sandwich okay?” With a huge smile he said ,”yes!”
As we were walking towards subway, I noticed that he’s limping which caused him to walk so slow. - We got to the store And got him his sandwich I asked if his back or legs were in pain. Turns out it was. I offered to pray and he was so excited because he believes in God and prayer. So I prayed and commanded for his back, legs and knees to be healed. After praying he felt so much better and he felt all the pain start to diminish.
We kept talking and I found out that he’s a believer too and loves Jesus! So awesome. I think we might have talked for an hour. But before i said goodbye I asked for his back and legs just to check if he was still in pain and he said “i feel a lil bit of pain in my back. My hips aren’t aligned that’s why I’m walking this way. And then the Holy Spirit gave me this impression that one of his legs are shorter and I need to command for it to grow and align with the other.
I said David one of your legs is shorter and the other is longer lets find a chair and have you sit down and I’m gonna ask Jesus to grow your short leg and aligned it with the other. He sat on a chair. Lift his legs up and sure enough left leg is shorter. I began to praying and commanded the leg to grow and to my amazement the leg grew and David felt it too! I asked him to stand and walk around and he said “my back feels way even better this time! And my legs are feeling so much better! Wow! Thank you!” We both rejoiced and praised God! He was so thankful how God restored his back and legs.
My friends, our God doesn’t show any partiality. small or great, young or old, rich or poor, it doesn’t matter. They are His children and He wants them all to be reconciled back to Him through meeting their physical or spiritual needs. It’s all about seeing people through the Father’s eyes and not yours.
Jesus, thank you for using someone like me to show love to others. Even though I feel so small and faithless, you never fail to show and display your power. It’s true when you said that ‘..even greater things you’ll be doing because I’m going to The Father!” I take hold of that because thats a trustworthy promise from you! Continue to use me, grow me and empower me to live a life worthy to be called your servant, disciple, and friend. :)
