2 Timothy 4:2 admonishes us to “Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction.”. It is so important that we train ourselves to be ready to minister at anytime and in anyplace.
As I was leaving the hotel to travel to the JFK Airport I felt compelled to slip a copy of DARE to Believe in my carry-on. I thought it was for one of the stewardesses on the plane, but the Holy Spirit had someone else in mind.
I walked up to the check-in counter at the airport, and handed the woman attending me my passport. She looked at me and asked, “Why are you ladies going to Tanzania?” I told her that we were going on a DARE to Believe mission’s trip. And shared very briefly that I was a minister of divine healing and miracles and that I wrote my first book with Destiny Image Publishers.
This woman immediately started to cry and share her life with me. She said that her brother had just recently passed away from a terrible disease, that she herself was diagnosed with MS and that her daughter was sick, and to top it all off, her husband couldn’t handle the stress and left.
She went on to say that she knew she needed to get her life right with God, and so she started to check on-line for information and books and found Destiny Image Publishers and ordered some books, and asked if I had a book on hand. I did. As I handed her a copy of DARE to Believe, I prayed with her right there at the counter and we exchanged contact information.
This is being ready in season and out of season to minister to whomever the Lord leads you to. There are people all around you that are desperate for a touch from our God. They do not know where to turn, but they need you to be willing and able to minister in the power of the Spirit to them.
