The Lord is someone of very few words, at least generally speaking. Often it is because I'm not listening. Often it is simply because He knows how to say something with incredibly few words that have incredible impact. Yet, every once in a while He comes across as "Chatty" to me. The rarity of it makes in most interesting. The other night was one of those times.

I was working a prayer room ministry at the time. It's just a nice room for people to come and spend sometime seek the Lord for themselves. All I was doing was signing people in and out so we could see how many people use the room. That doesn't happen in the room but as people come and go to the room.

Now every once in a while the Lord will give me a word for someone coming or going. It's certainly not the norm, but it does happen. It might be a word of encouragement, or a word of knowledge, or perhaps a word about a prayer need. It's whatever He wants to say, but because of Him I have seen a number of people healed just coming and going to the prayer room. There was an ankle, two stomachs, a back, a hip, some improvement on cancer, and I am believing He did something with that elbow we prayed for, and oh, I almost forgot about the knee. Still the words He says can be about anything and usually He doesn't have anything to say about the people coming and going.

Yet the other night He got "Chatty" and He seemed to have something to say about most of the people coming and going. We don't get that many people coming and going but I think I wound up giving words to at least five people. I like the word He gave me about the one man being a pastor, because it was such a specific word. Someone I had never seen before was checking out when the Lord just blurted out that the man was a pastor. So I blurted out to the man that he was a pastor, which of course caught his attention. He had been a youth pastor and assistant pastor at another church. And it turned out the Lord had been talking to him about using him again in those capacities. So it was a really specific word which gave fairly specific confirmation, which of course I couldn't have known and the man knew it. I love it when I get those type of words from the Lord, but giving them always stretches me. The Lord is weird, and you don't know what He is doing until you step in to what He is telling you.

There was the word for a lady going into the room about her being good at singing. I told her the word and she confirmed it, and that would have been a good specific word, except when I looked at her closer I realize I had actually seen her singing with the worship team in front of our church at times. So I could have known it, though I hadn't thought of it when He had told me. It should have encouraged her, but perhaps she was just thinking I said it because it was my thought. That got more interesting when He had me tell her that her prayers were awesome, as she was leaving. She seemed to be in tears, but I couldn't tell if it was because of the word I gave her or if it was from just spending time with Him in the room.

There was another word He had me give which was really good, but I can't remember exactly what it was. I don't remember because it started a wonderful conversation with the lady I gave it too. The word brightened her up. She had lost a place to stay and was counted on God to get her another place to live and a job to meet her needed. -- Oh, now I remember what it was. The Lord had me ask her what was the best thing He had ever done for her. She told me that it was her salvation, but then she started telling me about the place she had been in. It apparently had been a wonderful little place that God had almost miraculously got for her. It reminded her of what He had done for her before, so it got her thinking that He could certainly do it again.

There were a couple of other words He gave me also that night. I guess He actually didn't say that many words, but He did use me to effect a number of people lives that night. So I was thinking that for Him anyway, He was Chatty.

thanks for sharing all this - this is very inspiring to hear all the wonderful things God does

God bless you for listening for God's voice and stepping out by sharing what He says

i was inspired as a young person by christians who talked to and heard from God like He was right there talking to them - they made it appear normal to live like this - i am so glad that there are chirstians who think it is normal and special all at the same time
