Recently walked out of our inner-city church building to see a very disturbed & dejected man, head in his hands, sitting on the sidewalk. He called out to me for help, telling me that he had a 'ghost-spirit' inside of him that wouldn't let him have peace. He said this spirit crawled under his skin and tormented him continually. He told me that he first saw this spirit at a man's home a few years ago, and I was there and told it to go away and it did.
I knew the home and the man he spoke of, but don't recall ever doing what he said. This is not the first time God has done this... where He literally put me inside someone else's thoughts or dreams. A few years ago a man stopped me on the street and said, "I saw you in my dream." I asked him what I was doing in his dream, and he replied, "You were telling me all about Jesus." The next step was easy... I proceeded to tell the man about Jesus, just like he saw me doing in the dream.
For the man on the steps of the church yesterday, it was the same sort of thing... a divine set-up... a God connection. I proceeded to pray for the man in the name of Jesus, telling the evil spirit tormenting his life to leave him - and it did. He was at peace while we sat on the sidewalk together after our prayer. This is not unlike what God did with Saul after his encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus. God put Ananias in Saul's dream... and used Ananias to bring sight back to Saul.
We are living in a day and age where fearful and desperate people are crying out to God. Are you ready to be deployed by Him should He put you inside someone's thoughts or dreams?
