We went to a restaurant for lunch the other day. The waitress who usually waits on us looked very tired and gloomy. After paying for our order, we asked to sit outside as the weather was very nice that day. The waitress came out and brought our drinks when we asked what was the matter as her countenance was sad. She informed us that she was diagnosed with cancer and was to start treatment at the charity hospital as she had no money or private insurance. The Holy Spirit began giving us words of encouragement for the lady. After some conversation, we prayed for her and words of encouragement and prophecy came forth that the Lord would lead her through this time and place her in the hands of capable physicians and she was to put all of her burdens on His shoulders. During the prayer and conversation, the Holy Spirit prompted us to empty our wallets and give her all we had which amounted to a little over $100. She refused it, but we encouraged her that it was the Lord who wanted her to have this and it was only a token of what He was about to do for her in the days to come. The next day, thoughts of discouragement and common sense crept in saying things like... “She made that up to get money out of you” as well as similar thoughts that rob you of your faith. Then the word of the Lord spoke something like this: “If I took the trouble to get you guys to help that person with money and words of hope and encouragement, how much more do you think I am going to do to help her ” ?
Thank you Lord for your Mercy, Compassion and Lovingkindness
