I recently went out of town to visit family.

And it was a normal day. I was going back and forth between our hotel and family, church, etc.

Until I noticed a man who was walking quite strenuously with a cane.

It was obvious his back was out of alignment.

So, I wrestled with whether or not I should pray for him. The questions running through my mind were quite familiar:

“I mean, would God heal him?”

“Do I have time?”

“He’s a stranger. Will he even talk to me?”

After going through this for several minutes, I surrendered to the compassion of the Holy Spirit and went back downstairs to the lobby.

His name was Kamal.

He worked at the hotel.

When I asked him if I could pray for him, he was surprised and skeptical, but agreed.

He was uncomfortable with me touching him, so I just prayed for the healing.

And then it happened.

God whispered.

“Ask him if anyone has told him about Jesus.”

And so I did.

Come to find out, Kamal had been to church, to a mosque, the Hindu temple, etc.

He had been struggling with the fact he has a disability. And he was searching for God.

Of course, I didnt know this ahead of time.

That’s why it’s a divine appointment.

He was seeking God. And here I was to tell him about God!

“Seek and ye shall find…” Right?

Kamal told me he describes himself as “spiritual.”

He acknowledged there is “a God” but he thinks God “has too many things on his plate” to care about his suffering.

See why we need to sow love into the hearts of people?

I told Kamal God loves him. And the one true God sent Jesus to take away our sins.

I shared with him a scripture the Lord sent to my heart when I was talking with Kamal.

(I always pray as I witness for the Lord to send a word).

John 10:15-16 KJV

“As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.”

I stressed to Kamal there is only one sheepfold and only one shepherd.

Jesus was and is our protecter and redeemer.

There is only one Savior.

There is only one family of God.

Kamal told me he heard of Jesus. He said he picks up the bible just as he reads other texts from other traditions.

He told me he had been to a church and a preacher laid hands on him.

But I told him the preacher can’t save him. Only Jesus can!

I shared my testimony and told Kamal how to pray for Jesus to come into his heart.

He wasn’t ready.

But I’ve been praying he will.

Through this story I want to encourage you to give in to the compassion of the Holy Spirit.

Truth be told, you won’t always “feel like it.”

But if you surrender and say “Send me Lord,” the Spirit will give you what you need.

God bless you!
