My headache kept throbbing and I could barely keep my eyes open when I answered a call, and heard, “I’m not feeling well. Can you please pray for me?” I felt led to pray healing for that person and realized, after the call, that my headache was gone. In awe, I praised the Lord!
There are times when the Spirit of God will lead us to water others, with a prayer or a word of exhortation, when we, ourselves, are in need. His leading to minister to others is not based on how great we feel, but on how great He is. Paying attention to His directions and obeying them causes us to die to our flesh and through it we see the manifestation of His glory!
There are also times when we do not see the fruit of our watering right away and must, as led, continue to pray and to share the Word, trusting God for the unseen growth. We might get weary repeatedly watering the same person or situation, but the Holy Spirit enables us to press through in obedience by refreshing and refilling us. As we water others, we are watered, from glory to glory!
Proverbs 11:25 “The generous soul will be made rich, And he who waters will also be watered himself.”There are times when the Spirit of God will lead us to water others, with a prayer or a word of exhortation, when we, ourselves, are in need. Click To Tweet
