“Now if we are afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effective
for enduring the same sufferings which we also suffer. Or if we are comforted,
it is for your consolation and salvation.” 2 Cor. 1:6
While Michael was working, a man came to deliver parts for some equipment at
his job site. As Michael struck conversation with the man, he began to openly
share about his daughter who was at stage four cancer. After listening to the
man, Michael felt impressed to go out to the man’s vehicle and pray for him and
for his daughter before he left. As Michael was praying, the man broke down and
cried, and Michael was able to share with the man about how he struggled in a
similar situation with his son and how God had delivered his son from a death bed.
Michael was able to share with the man that all things are possible with God, and
that just as God had delivered his son, He can deliver his daughter. This gave the
man comfort and hope. Michael later commented about how God is so willing to
use us in some of the most unexpected places and times. Praise God for Michael.
