A Man’s prayer answered immediately!

I wanted to share this powerful testimony from this morning…

A few minutes ago as I was coming into our offices here at Take the City I felt led to go talk to a guy at the bus stop. I see people at the bus stop almost every morning I come in but today felt drawn to ask the guy if he was okay. As soon as I asked him if he was okay, he started crying and told me he wasn’t okay. He said he wasn’t from around here but was from north GA. He was stuck there at the bus stop with everything he owned with no where to go. I asked him if he wanted some water and brought him inside. Once we came inside I was able to talk to him and called our friend Bobby, who’s in our Reach School, to come by and meet with him. We were able to talk and pray with him and hear more of his story and what he’s been going through.

He told me that at the exact moment I was pulling into our office he was at the bus stop praying to God because he was stranded away from home and had no idea what to do. As soon as he saw me pulling up he had a thought come into his head saying that I was someone who was coming to help him.

I was the immediate answer to his prayer this morning, not because I had all the answers or even knew what to say. I just simply asked if I could help and Jesus did all the rest!

What’s even crazier is that when I found out where he was from I asked him if he knew a guy named Chad who also lives up in North GA. I told him I wanted to connect him with Chad if possible. He then tells me that he’s heard of Chad over and over again from people saying he needs to connect with him but has never talked to him. I then told him that I was going to call Chad and that they were going to get connected today. Chad has a similar past to Casey and I know can really help him.

Pray for him today that God would get him into a program for his addiction and that he would step into all God has for him! God, our Father, is calling his lost sons and daughters home. His heart is that none should perish but that everyone would be reconciled back to Him!

UPDATE: 6/24/2019 – We just got a report back that Casey has entered into a recovery program in the North Georgia area. He was able to meet with our good friend Chad and he helped him get into a program that will help him be discipled and transformed by the love of Jesus!

“So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” — 2 Corinthians 5 16-21

  2. God allows us to go through those extreme times so we can point others to Him through those experiences.
    Thank you Andrew for being Jesus in the flesh, aware and obedient to the Holy Spirit’s prompting. Praying go Casey right now!

  3. Andrew. I am so glad that you were sensitive to the prompting of the Holy Spirit. Many times He is trying to get our attention and we just shrug it off. There is no telling what we miss out on because we are not dialed in to God.

    • Casey Wimberly my heart is over filled with such a joy I haven’t felt in quite sometime as to what I feel right now at this very moment to read this amazing story. The tears that filled my eyes as I read that God knew exactly where you would be and who you would cross paths with that would lead you to him. This is the true work of God and reading this speak loudly to me that I’ve been away from him way too long. Hold to The Lord don’t take your eyes off him… I can only imagine what he has in store for you. I love you Casey and keep on holding on to the one who saved you by his amazing grace.

  12. Casey we’ve known each other for over 20 yrs now and I just wanted to say I know we’ve had some differences but no matter what we’ve always been able to over come it together. I have also surrendered my addiction and my heart to God and have in-rolled into an inpatient rehab center for 9 months.. so believe me when I say I am truly humbled to say I am very glad to be your friend and I love you very much brother and I’ll always be here for you…. God bless you and your family 🙏🙏!!!! ( PRAYER CHANGES THINGS)

TAKE THE CITY outreaches have been so special to me. I love being able to see the hand of GOD move in peoples lives as they are healed and families restored. GOD cares about every detail of our lives and he reaches the places that only HE can only heal! Its been an honor to see all the teams go out and share the LOVE that GOD has instilled and filled the teams with, and let it pour out to all the community. Having physical needs met also assures all we encounter, the faithfulness of our Father. So many times I have cried seeing what GOD is doing… Being able to see people brought into the KINGDOM and freedom Spirit, Soul, Mind and Body. Is the greatest treasure in my life. I am grateful for TAKE THE CITY allowing me to have front seat and seeing GOD move in peoples lives!
