A word in due season
A word in due season when God prompts you is so important. In a recent post I shared about how Cassandra and Sharon also e-mailed me with a word one day, not a "thus saith the Lord" type thing as Tara did, yet a very timely word of encouragement. Cassandra felt an overwhelming urge from the Lord to go to her computer and write it at a certain moment and that moment was really crucial to me.
Don't ever hesitate to SPEAK when God gives you an ENCOURAGING word. Don't hold back and don't be too busy to share it! You have NO IDEA how you will change someone's day or their life!!!
The other day I was going about my daily routine and felt an overwhelming urge to pray for my friend, missionary Barb Kuert who is in Kenya. I interceded for her and then followed it up with an e-mail telling her what the Holy Spirit prompted me to do. She said that she had just come back from a trip to the coast and was very, very sick. She was in desperate need of prayer and my e-mail was a great encouragement to her.
The other thing is to not be afraid to share something no matter how stupid or crazy the details might seem. Often things people have thought are insignificant or crazy have been just the confirmations I, or others, needed to hear!
Thanks Tara, for being an ever encouraging, sensitive friend. I love you!
