Everyday is a new day. Some days you may be dealing with new people and other days you may be dealing with the same people. Walking with Jesus is not complicated. but a lot of times we feel like we need a script to minister to people, to speak truth to them. And maybe to an extent that is true. Be open to new possibilities.
Jn 8:31 — Jn 8:32
The Truth Will Set You Free
So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
We have to be open to the Holy spirit’s leading what works for one person might not work for another person. What works for one person one week may not work for the same person ever again. We have to be flexible. You really have to listen to the heart. When I say listen to the heart you have to use your heart to listen to their heart.
You have to listen intently. You can’t be given answers to questions that weren’t asked. Don’t get caught up in Christianese
If you are not careful you will find yourself defaulting to religious formulas, outward actions, or something that worked for you in the past, but is no longer applicable today. It is just like going on quest. What worked on one quest might not work on the last quest. Just because it was amazing. This is a whole new event with its own theme a whole new group of guys or gals.
Believe in the possibility that what God told you yesterday was for yesterday. Today is a whole new day with all new possibilities and with all new opportunities. What he told you yesterday he may expand on today and it may be even more powerful.
Jesus never healed the same way twice that we know of. Every healing he listened and then he might have laid hands, one day he spit and made mud, one day he spoke in their presence and another day he spoke without anybody being around he did what his father told him to do and he said what his father told him to say
Yesterday I was approached by a young lady taken donations for helping drug addicts in recovery. I looked at her and I heard,. tell her that you’re healed. I said I will donate but I want to tell you that I am a healed addict. She looked at me kind of dumbfounded. She had never heard that term before and she asked me what do you mean healed? How long have you been healed? I said 32 years. Jesus healed me. She and her partner were both believers but have never heard it put that way before. It was good I didn’t stretch the truth I didn’t embellish I just felt like I said what the Lord told me to say.
Always be prepared to give a reason for the hope that you have. And you don’t have to add to what the Lord tells you to say. What he tells you is good enough.
