home meeting. After leaving a wonderful home meeting, my son and I stopped to get a bite for the road. When getting out of the car, I quickly noticed that (1) it was dark, (2) there were no people around, and (3) I was being approached by what looked like an angry man with an agenda. Among my quick conclusions was that this may become a bad situation, but God causes all things to work together for good according to those who love Him (Rom 8:28). Do I run or do I take courage and dive into my fears? I take courage, immediately greet the man, and then begin to strike conversation with him. He was just released from prison, his family disowned him, and he had nowhere to go. This type of situation is very difficult for people like him. Think about it…..no car, no money, no job, nowhere to go? While in discussion with him, I pray continually for words of knowledge/wisdom and seek God in this situation. In talking with him, I realize that it is because of his repeated actions that his family has disowned him. I then ask him if I could pray for him. After praying for him, he is less guarded, diffused of his anger, and receptive. I prayed that he would recognize his family’s love for him, and that he would walk in humility towards them to help heal the scars that he inflicted upon them. After this, he says, “Man, you are right. I need to get this straight.” God freely gives wisdom to those who ask in faith (James 1:5). I am grateful.
