“Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” (Heb 13:2)
Yesterday at church I heard about a woman in our town who had thyroid cancer and it was spreading. She was at the point where she couldn’t eat food. The outlook was bleak. As she was stopped at a red light in town, a homeless woman approached her for money. She reached into her purse, pulled out five dollars and handed it to her.
When she did that, the homeless woman reached through her car window, placed her hand on her arm, looked her intently in the eye and said, “God bless you” and then turned to walk away. The lady with cancer was deeply touched by the apparent sincerity of that simple blessing and reached down in her purse to find a twenty dollar bill to give the woman.
When she looked up to give her the twenty bucks, the woman was nowhere to be found. She had simply vanished. On top of that, the woman with cancer felt that something dramatic had happened in her body. She drove to Taco Bell and bought some food and for the first time in weeks, was able to eat without pain or problem. She had been healed.
Needless to say, there was rejoicing in that family and in our community. I believe God is in the process of invading this planet with a fresh wind of His presence. Something is up. God is afoot in the marketplace and that is impacting the church. Kind of reminds me of the first time Jesus came. Friends, we live in uncommon times and we will be experiencing uncommon encounters with the Lord in the coming months. More later. Get ready.
