I was recently able to witness to a man who was already saved. However, he told me that the night before he had been smoking and drinking with some of his old friends from before he was saved. He said he needed prayer because he had to give a presentation in two hours and he said he still felt intoxicated. I was able to pray for him that the Lord would give him a sound mind and be perfectly coherent.
After I prayed, I asked him and he said he was better and had a clear mind! He was able to think clearer and I could tell by looking at him that his demeanor had definitely changed! I was also able to share with him about the Holy Spirit and how the Holy Spirit wanted to come and change him and help him in everything. He was from a church that believed the Holy Spirit is not available to believers anymore.
As I was sharing with with this man, I was telling the man scripture upon scripture of how the Holy Spirit was for all believers and for us today. He did not receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit but I was able to point him to the Word and answer some of his questions and plant the seed into his heart for the baptism in the Holy Spirit. After I was done sharing with him, the man said that I was sent from the Lord to talk to him. He had really needed the prayer and encouragement, and I was glad to have been able to minister to him.
As I walked away from the man, I was amazed at at all the scripture that had come out of my spirit! I did not even realize how much of the Word has been implanted on the inside of me! The only way to find out is to pour out into others!
