On that very day Abraham did as God told him. ~ Genesis 17:23

Today’s Daily Devotion talks about instant obedience and how important it is to act when the Holy Spirit prompts us.

In this video, I share with you one of those moments that needed instant obedience and I am beyond humbled that God would use me as his vessel in an amazing way.

You see I was running late for church and still had to stop and get doughnuts for children’s church. I ran into the store and saw an older woman in the card section. I zoomed right on by but I heard the Holy Spirit tell me to tell that lady that God loves her very much.

I continued to the doughnuts and told God I would tell her, even though she probably would think I’m crazy if she is still there after I check out.

Guess what?

You got…she was still there!

I walked up to her and said, “Ma’am you’re probably going to think I’m crazy but God wanted me to tell you that he loves you very much.”

At that moment the tears began to rush out like a waterfall and she said, “I just lost my husband 3 weeks ago and I’ve been asking God why he doesn’t love me. I have felt so alone these past 3 weeks!”

I gave that woman the biggest hug and continued on my way out the door in tears myself not caring anymore about being late to church.

Will you be obedient when God calls you? Have you had a similar situation where you were used as God’s vessel or were you on the receiving end of it being blessed by someone else’s instant obedience? Share with me in the comments below, I’d love to hear about it.
