Towards Pentecost 5: The Gift of Prophetic Word

 2019.26.Towards Pentecost 5.main blog pic

 

One of the gifts of the Holy Spirit is prophecy. Today, Kat shares about a prophetic word that had a profound impact in her life.

She appeared from nowhere out of the darkness.  Or that’s what it seemed to my task-oriented, confused mind, anyway.  I was busy wiping tables, and solving myriad other problems in my head, and she stopped me to tell me that she’d been praying for me.  I thought at first that she had the wrong Sister.  I hardly knew her and couldn’t think why she’d be praying for me.  Then she told me that she’d woken in the middle of the night before with a sense of something that God wanted to say to me…

What she said spoke so exactly and profoundly into my life and prayer of the last few months that I could no longer deny that she had the right person.  It was God’s word of encouragement to my fumbling uncertain heart, and it touched me deeply.

We spoke for only a brief few minutes – I thanked her and she told me that she would keep on praying – and then she disappeared back into the darkness and I went back to wiping tables.  But nothing was the same any more.  I felt like I glowed from somewhere inside and there was a spring in my step and a song in my heart.  God knew my heart and had reached out to me in the darkness.  What a gift!
