So since I am on a roll with God and His ability to do the impossible, let me give you another example. This time I want to show you how obedience can reveal the impossibilities of God.
When I was in College I went to chapel service one day and was sitting behind a young man when I felt in my spirit like the Holy Spirit wanted me to gently rub his back. I thought it was weird that the thought kept floating in my heart. I kinda tried to passively ignore it but after a few minutes I did it anyway.
The young man instantly turned around and half smiled. Feeling kinda cute I didn’t know what to say. I didn’t exactly hear God say I should, I just had an impressing urge to do it. So I looked at him and said “hey, how you doing?” He replied “not bad” and turned back around. I felt so weird. [Heeeshhhh] Nonetheless, the service went on and I forgot about it. When the service was through I was on my way out heading to the lunchroom when I saw someone chasing me on the corridor. “Amo, Amo, Amorelle…..” He yelled . “yes” I replied. “Did you know you have healing in your hands?” “huh?” I answered questioningly. He continued… “I was in horrible pain when I came to school today. While in chapel, when you put your hand on my back I was so surprised. I didn’t know what to say. When you asked how I was, I replied ‘not bad’. However, in my head I was saying, ‘don’t touch it too hard because I am in pain’ but I chose not to say anything. To my amazement by the time you were finished and I was standing for prayer I couldn’t believe it – all my pain was gone”. Eyes wide open, brows densely knitted and jaw fully dropped… “What?” I said surprised and dumbfounded at the same time. He reiterated “My pain is gone. All gone. Nada…nothing. Thanks much. Thanks” and with that he walked off smiling while I stood frozen to the spot.
“What!! well how about that?” I thought to myself after I eventually walked off. Did God do an impossible act right there in the midst of my simple obedience? That’s crazy! Well crazy awesome. That guy went home pain free and I went to my dorm “fantamazed” (Fantastic + amazed). What a God!
If He did it before my friend, surely He can surely do it again.
Keep believing, keep your faith up.
Your God is able
