Hear Something…

Sometimes we get a word for someone we are going to for help. Help for a fee. Doctor, Lawyer, Dentist, Therapist, Tax guy….you get it. Not that these people are above us, but it just feels awkward. This isn’t a barter club. Hey, if you do my taxes, I will tell you about your future. Seems a bit unprofessional and woo-woo.

But I get it all the time. Maybe you do too. If it truly is from God, it will come out easily, and you will see or feel a lightbulb go off when they receive it.

Today, I had an appointment, and the tech was bustling around the room as God was downloading to me. “Tell her” “God, she looks like she is in a hurry.” “Tell her anyway.” Why do I even argue?

“Do you know what a word of knowledge is?” “No.” “It’s a Christian term when God gives you some information about someone or something that you don’t have prior knowledge about.” If WOK is not in their vocabulary, they are usually WTH……1,2,3 it’s deer in headlights, and then they are stuck like a fly on an adhesive strip. Holy Spirit style.

“God tells me you are a good mom. You are very strict and love your kids very much. You are like a momma bear with them.” Susie laughs and relaxes. “Yes, you sure got that one right on. I am VERY strict.” Her boss, the doctor, replaces her, and before he can leave the room God prompts me again.

” I know you are a Christian. Do you know what a word of knowledge is?”

“No.” I give him the same simple explanation and tell him, ” God tells me he has surrounded you with very smart and efficient staff. They have got your back. There is no backstabbing or sabotage. They are loyal to you and will always be there for you.

His mouth dropped open, and then he smiled “Thank you so much for telling me this. That is so encouraging. Really. Thank you.”

It is so much easier when you just repeat what you hear, relay it when He tells you to and then get out of the way. You don’t need to know why He wants them to hear these words. Could be for now. Could be for later. Could be for a variety of reasons you really don’t need to be privy to.

No matter who someone is or the title they hold….they were created by God and special to Him. He has imprinted their hearts with the desire to hear His voice and be known by Him.

Hear something….say something.

Let’s give them something to talk about after you leave 🙂

Chatty Daddy

Over 12 years ago, I had just left the catholic church, and at every event I went to, someone would prophesy over me,” You are very prophetic; God wants to use you as a mouthpiece.” I got to the point that when someone told me they had a word for me, I would say, “No, that’s ok.” Why? I didn’t want the pressure or responsibility, and my earlier new-age experience with psychics made me question the validity. I had also known several people who used “God told me that….” to release their own un-godly opinions on others. If it wasn’t from God, I didn’t want it. Besides, I did not want to fail or be wrong. I also had some ego in the game.

I also knew people that were into healing but called “words” the pathetic prophetic. Most prophecy or WOK wasn’t from God but rather a “familiar spirit.” The last thing I wanted to do was offend the Holy Spirit or have demons speak thru me. It was just safer to leave that stuff alone. As much as I didn’t want to say what I heard from God, the words flew out of my mouth. I didn’t feel special; I felt uncomfortable, awkward, and sometimes crazy. But as I spoke about what God was showing me, I saw hearts open and lives changed. As Godfrey Birtill sings, “Just one touch from the King changes everything.”

Now I don’t care. I don’t force it, and if I get something, I do. Please stop trying to discourage yourself or others from sharing what they believe they hear from God. We all hear from Big Sky Daddy. All of us. Ever say or think something and think, “Wow, that was brilliant! Where did that come from?” It was probably from the Holy Spirit. 🙂
