Have you ever considered that God could use you to pray over a whole hospital and that He would use your prayer to make a big difference in the lives of the patients, doctors, nurses, staff members and visitors that day? If not, I encourage you to believe big like this because God has SO MANY assignments lined up for you to fulfill. You are not just barely surviving this life. YOU are a WORLD CHANGER IN CHRIST and you carry the power of the Holy Spirit everywhere you go!
I encourage you, as a Jesus-follower, to hold your head up high and walk through life knowing that God has given you authority over the evil one in the name of Jesus.
I was headed to my CrossFit workout this morning, but I forgot something and had to turn around and head home. On my way back I drove by this hospital and God led me to pull into the parking lot and sit here and pray over the whole hospital.
If I’m going to take the time to sit here and pray, then I need to actually believe that God is going to hear my prayer and help the hurting people inside this hospital. And I can believe this simply because of the love, grace and goodness that I know God is willing to extend toward all humanity.
My pastor, Jeff Perry, once said that “Faith is just reliance on how good God is.”
As I pray right now I choose to believe that the presence of Jesus is going to fill every single room of this hospital, that people will be healed and that people will have a desire to call on Jesus today!
What if I would have spent the drive home being mad at myself because I forgot something and had to cancel my CrossFit workout? I would have missed out on this opportunity to sit here and pray over all of these people who are so important to God because I would have been too caught up in myself to even notice the hospital.
Sad to say, I lived like this for many, many years. Life was mostly about me and “what is everybody thinking about me” and “what is this person or that person going to do for me.”
It’s not like I never thought about others or never did anything kind for anyone else. I did. But the majority of my thought life was consumed with thinking about myself. Thankfully, by God’s grace, this is no longer the way I live.
I highly encourage you to walk through life being spiritually perceptive of the people around you and how they may be hurting and how they could use an encouraging word or how a prayer prayed over them could make all the difference in their day, in their life, in their world.
Never forget that You Are A World Changer!
Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart. Colossians 4:2
