It so cool when God shows up in a meeting and confirms, brings freedom and understanding to His written and spoken Word.
As I was ministering at a Youth meeting - I was speaking on the gifts of the Holy Spirit and how and why the Lord speaks to His children today - I was somewhat watchful on how and what i was sharing since it was my first time there and was not sure on their understanding on the gifts of the spirit - but i still had to be me and show how God's love ministers freedom!
As I was sharing I see a girl get up and leave, I didn't think much of it - as the night moved a long the Holy Spirit began to speak a few words of Knowledge to my spirit - there was a young lady on the front row that really didn't make much eye contact with me - but as I would walk by her, I felt the Love of God for her -but I didn't have a "word" for her.
I went on to minister to a few more youth and then the Lord revealed to me that He wanted this young lady to know that there is Hope for her and that He was going to bring her to that place and she would feel His love in a new way. I was like, OK Lord - is that it? (LOL) So I shared with her this and some other things and she began to cry and we prayed for her...
Later that night i got a chance to speak with this young lady - this is what she had to say ~ She felt like God told her that there was Hope and she was sharing this with some people in Her church (she flt God speak to her) and they told her that it wasn't God and that it was just in her "head".
What a God we serve - He began to speak to her - in her alone time, then she had this encounter with some church folk that really messed her up - then I come along and Hear a word for her - God was showing her that He is there for her and that she did hear correctly and that He still is speaking today!
Back to the girl the got up and left - I got to speak with her also - She began to tell me that she didn't believe what I was sharing and didn't want to hear anymore - so she got up and went upstairs - while she was up there, she said she felt like she needed to go back down (interesting) here is the cool part - come to find out that she had a sister in the meeting - guess who she was? Her sister is the girl the Lord ministered to about Hope!!!!
Its amazing how God works! If she didn't listen to that little nudge to come back to the meeting - she would missed out on God ministering to her sister about Hope and showed her that God does speak - which opened her heart!!!
24 But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an [l]ungifted man enters, he is convicted by all, he is called to account by all; 25 the secrets of his heart are disclosed; and so he will fall on his face and worship God, declaring that God is certainly among you.
This girl was saved - but was not taught about the power of the prophetic word! She confessed that what was spoken had to come from God...as I was speaking with her, the Lord was showing me that he views her as a princess diamond that shines with brilliance - she began to cry and showed me her class ring - what was the diamond - a PRINCESS DIAMOND CUT!!!
The power of the prophetic word can change a heart in a second. It is so important for the church to move in the Holy Spirit to bring freedom in the spirit. We should never despise the prophetic - use caution as we minister and believe that you are capable to edify the body!
