I have had the Holy Spirit lead me and guide me in many situations both in my walk personally and in ministry work. This has happened many times while I was an LCU student. It is always such a joy. I have had some remarkable experiences as I obey His leading.
While on a mission trip in Costa Rica, we went to a local hospital. We had the opportunity to do skits and pray with patients. The Holy Spirit was present with us. I went with a team to pray with patients. God led me to the last room at the end of the hall on the 3rd floor. The room was full, with 10 patients in their beds.
In the corner, there was a woman sitting on her bed staring up with her hand raised. My interpreter, Rowan, and I walked over to her bed. Her eyes were black as coal and she was scratching her arms. I could see the demon’s presence in her eyes. I asked her if I could pray with her and she said, “Yes.”
I placed my hand on her head and proceeded to pray in Jesus’ name. I could feel God’s power flowing through me. I opened my eyes and I could see changes coming over her. Her skin was changing to a different complexion and her eyes changed to a bluish-green color. She then took my hand and placed it on her stomach where there was a large tumor sticking out. As I continued to pray, I could feel the tumor shrinking in and going away. She immediately jumped up on the bed and started yelling, “Jesús, Jesús!” Then she continued to jump from bed to bed.
Rowan turned a little pale, but I could tell he was excited about what had just happened. He said, “Mr. John, I’m sticking with you from now on!”
The Holy Spirit is incredible, and the presence of God is the greatest feeling in the world!
