When God touches our lives, we are completely free to live a life devoted to following the leading of Holy Spirit in our lives. We don’t have to get caught up in what people think about us, or their opinions. If your loved by God, and love following God, don’t be surprised when not everyone likes the life that you live. Just focus on those lives who will be impacted for Jesus. When Lonnie Frisbee was powerfully touched by God, James Gohr was one of the lives that would be forever changed. As Gohr shares, his mother told him that “a modern day John the Baptist, and he moves in signs and wonders, and miracles follow him”. Gohr noticed a distinct difference in his mother after she went to a meeting with Lonnie Frisbee. Gohr had to see for himself, which he did. “I had really gotten saved”. One man asks Gohr, “you have just stood in God’s face. Who do you think I’m talking about? What did God look like?” Gohr responds, “His eyes and mouth were the color of the sky, the heavens that this violent purple blue color you’ve never known or seen. He was giant. Shiny silvery white. I was looking into His face. I couldn’t make out any features, but all I knew was one thing, that I finally felt like I mattered. I finally felt like I was loved and that I belonged.” The man listening to his response replied with certainty, “I knew it”, and walked away. As the man walked away, he began boldly declaring to all of those around. “PEOPLE! PEOPLE! Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. And what is the Kingdom of God, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.” As Gohr recounts, immediately the power of God fell mightily in that place. That was the night that he met Lonnie Frisbee. It’s so important to remember, this wasn’t Lonnie Frisbee that was moving powerfully. It was the power of the Holy Spirit that was moving THROUGH Lonnie Frisbee.
So many people can be feeling the very same thing that James Gohr is talking about. You matter, and your are important to the Lord. Some might not be able to articulate that, or be able to know that is what they are wanting to know, do I matter. The answer is a resounding YES! The very fact that you are reading these very words is because God orchestrated this very moment for you to know that He loves you and sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins. The encouraging reality is that God is into YOU! He wants to know if you want to know Him too?
