Be encouraged! Another supernatural day in the life of my friend Steve Olney… Way to go Steve!
It’s been a weird day, for various reasons, but it has ended well.
Lead a man to Jesus in Queen Victoria Street.
I was on my way back to the station, and a man was approaching people , begging for money. I had seen him an hour earlier and smiled, this time I approached him and asked him if he knew of Jesus and would he like to be touched by him.
“I didn’t know you could” was the gist of his answer.
So I asked Jesus to touch him, and he did, the man describing it as a “sinking feeling” (in a good way!)
I then lead him through a prayer of salvation, asking Jesus to heal him, forgive him and restore him. He says he feels elated, sentimental and describes it as “powerful &@!* “.
He looks at my back and says “where are your wings” which made me laugh.
I keep praying for him, declaring Jesus love over him and restoration of his life, praying for his alcohol addiction to be broken. He starts to weep. He hasn’t cried in 10 years.
I point out that there are good churches around Reading , chat a bit more and head for the station and home, buzzing about what happened and praising Jesus for what he did.
Praise Him indeed!!
