Can I Get a Witness Program
The Can I Get a Witness program will help make you more aware of the Holy Spirit dwelling within you. You will be encouraged through scripture and discipled by being ‘wired’ into God’s love. The Holy Spirit will lead you and give you the right words to speak to someone. You will experience how the Holy Spirit will give them comfort through you. You learn to realize this is an art that can be developed.
When Elijah was trying to flee to Horeb, scripture tells us in 1 Kings 19:11-13 (NIV):
1 Kings 19:11-13 (NIV)
The LORD said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the LORD, for the LORD is about to pass by. Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave. Then a voice said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”
If you are looking for something spectacular to lead you in witnessing, you will probably be disappointed. Natural events such as a great and strong wind, an earthquake, a fire, etc., are not listed as ways that God lead Elijah and typically they are not the way He will lead us. It is a gentle whisper—a still small voice—that will lead you when you are witnessing. Learning to become a successful witness through the Can I Get A Witness program is rooted in listening to the gentle whisper from the Holy Spirit, and following that leading with an and open heart.
The Can I Get a Witness theory is that by not having a predetermined, memorized script or an agenda that we are typically more open to having God lead us in what to say. Speaking from your heart while talking with someone allows you to be open to what God would have you say. You and the Holy Spirit make an awesome team. Let Him do His part.
How the Holy Spirit Offered Comfort to a Lonely Elderly Person
One day, a team leader was ministering to a lady who was about eighty years old. He was able to determine that the lady was a Christian, but wasn’t able to get to church because of health issues. While they talked, the team leader felt an unction—a prompting—to ask her if anyone had told her they loved her that day. The question struck her heart and she started crying. She explained to the team that her husband had died six years earlier, her children were estranged from her, and no one typically came to visit. It had been many years since she had heard those important words. The team leader had listened to that small whisper. It encouraged him to tell her that the main reason the team was visiting her that day was to tell her that they loved her. She invited them into her home and they had fellowship with her.
The team leader had NEVER asked anyone that question before. It was his sensitivity to the gentle whisper that had made it possible for the Holy Spirit to minister to this lady on that day. As Christians, most of us have ignored that still small voice in our hearts at times. The Can I Get A Witness program will help you get more confident and more comfortable to follow that prompting. When you follow that leading and remain obedient to it, you will impact someone’s day for God, and there is a double blessing because it impacts YOUR day, too.
