A Testimony on Witnessing!
Have you been still and listened to the “Still Small Voice” in your devotion last night? In reaching out to others, it is so important to be sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit in order to have success! Spending quality time praying in tongues will help to strengthen our inner man.
“1 King 19:12 And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.
If yes, we need to quickly obey that direction of The Lord & then you will see the Hands of The Lord moving mightily before you!“
One time the Lord awoke me from my sleep at about 3 in the morning and flashed in my mind a scripture in Haggai 2:4, a scripture I did not know of. You see I had just become a believer for about 6 months and I had then yet to read through the Bible, especially the Old Testament. The verse seemed strange to me and reads like this:-
“Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, saith the Lord; and be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all ye people of the land, saith the Lord, and work: for I am with you, saith the Lord of hosts”
When I read it, I did not what it meant and so I went to sleep. The next day I was in the office, a colleague came to see me at about 10 in the morning to bid me farewell because that day was her last day. I was surprised as I had not heard that she was leaving! Then I was told that it was a 24 hours’ notice she received for something she did wrong. Then immediately I knew that scripture was for her and these were the words that were speaking to me for her:-
“…be strong, saith the Lord; and be strong,… and be strong, and work: for I am with you, saith the Lord”
So I ministered to her with that verse asking her not to be sad but to be very strong and look for another job and continue to work!
Witnessing on the Telephone
Another time I was calling an angry customer an Australian who had a complaint against one of the staff working under me. I was then a manager in an insurance company. Whilst listening to his complaint, I suddenly heard a voice softly said to me “ask him if he is now alright and anything troubling him! I thought to myself, what if he becomes even more angry? But the words kept bubbling in me and I could not help but to obey and with a deep breath I asked him, “Sir may I ask if you are now alright, is something troubling you? Wow immediately I uttered those words, he immediately broke down and he told me that he was not feeling good, but very lonely and depressed. He said he lived all alone in a rented apartment. So I asked to pray for him for God to release peace to him. Yes I boldly proclaimed I was a Christian and would want to pray for him if he would not mind. As I prayed, I could hear he was quietly sobbing. When I finished, he said he felt so much better.
Then again the Lord spoke to me “Pray for him to be a believer!” Just imagine I was only a 6 months old believer and hardly knew much of the Bible. But I was compelled to go ahead. The Holy Spirit was all over me and I really had to do it. Yes in His Strength and Boldness!
I said Sir “Would you like me to pray again for you to have Jesus and His Peace shall be with you and he answered “Okay”.
So I asked him to knee down and repeat the sinner’s prayer. At that time, I thought to pray, we have to knee down! He repeated the prayer and I believe he was saved. Later in the evening, I made a trip to visit him and handed some tapes and books to grow in the Lord!
To God Be All The Glory, a soul was won to Jesus and on the “telephone!” I still could not believe how it could happen. That was the beginning of many of my exploits in the Lord!
Be blessed & obey His voice
