It still to this day amazes me how God will come to confirm something in my life even if it is at the very last moment. One time was in the middle of my internship and I had made up my mind that I was going to quit. There was so much going on in my life that I couldn’t stand the pressure, the work load, and I felt like I was so far away from God. It was a Friday night and I was working late with the outreach department and I was planning to go to Pastor Todd on Sunday and tell him that I was quitting my internship. There was an IMSM College (student ministry) night that night so I decided to just go over and sit in what was left of the service. As I was walking over, I said “God, I’m done. I just can’t do this anymore, it’s too much and I can’t do anything right anymore.” Ben was preaching that night and he was preaching on the nations and what God had imparted to us was not for us but it was for other people and I remember that the entire service I just kind of sat there in an “out of it” state, too upset and distracted to really allow God to touch me. He did an altar call for people who felt God was burning nations in their heart and so I answered it but I had no reverence for the Holy Spirit or what He could do right then; I just stood there. When Ben came to me, the Lord spoke straight through him and he began to prophecy over me that everything I was doing right now, the place that I was at, was exactly where God had me to be. Everything I was doing and learning would be utilized for the call and plan of God over my life. It amazes me that God will never let us go. He will confirm His word in every way possible to let us know how much He truly cares for us.
