I’m no trained poodle!
Greetings from Tallinn, Estonia!
Lars runs a prophetic school from his home in the south of France. Yesterday he announced that he had no program for our meeting with the local church. He said that he was just going to release us to prophesy over the locals. My response was: “I’m not a trained circus poodle. If I get a word for someone there, I will give it, but I’m not going to perform for you.”
Of course the reality was wonderful and humbling. When Lars finished his introduction, he announced that we will prophesy: first to the group as a whole, and then to individuals. He advised them to record the prophesies and then write them down and see what God has to say to them.
He started off, then invited us to jump in if we got a word. Well, almost all of us did have a word for the group. It was very instructive and encouraging for them. Then we began prophesying to individuals. Prophesy flowed very freely. Each of us prophesied to at least one of each of them.
Then Lars reversed it and invited them to prophesy to us. They were shy at first, but again prophesy eventually flowed. Here’s what one girl prophesied over me:
I see waves. God is taking you somewhere, but He’s also holding you as you rock on the waves. You are in the right place.
Once again, mine is a water prophesy (see Mutual Encouragement, The Prophecy Fulfilled, and Lessons in Floating). She was encouraged to know that she had hit the bullseye. I guess we can all be trained circus poodles when it suits God’s purpose. God is good!
