In order to protect this person's privacy, all I can say is the 'word of knowledge' shared with me was so personal and revealed a secret this person had struggled with and been tormented over.
You may be asking yourself, why would God share someone's private information with me?
I'll tell you why... because He also provided me with answers that this person had not known (about this situation) and desperately needed to hear.
He provided me with a "key" to unlock this person's doubt, unforgiveness towards herself and shame.
God is not in the business of gossip, He is in the business of setting people free and He wanted to partner-up, by asking me to communicate this message to His beloved! The only thing standing in the way.... was me!
I battled with my own doubts,
"What if I made this up?"
"What if I'm wrong?"
"This person is going to think I'm crazy!"
"I can't share this with her, it's too personal and I don't really have that kind of relationship with her."
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah!
Here is what I can tell you; When a message comes from the Lord... IT WILL NOT GO AWAY UNTIL YOU ACCOMPLISH WHAT HE ASKED YOU TO DO!
I would stay up at night thinking about this. It would flood my mind during the day, and even visit my dreams! The Lord was relentless until I surrendered. You see, I was thinking about myself, God was thinking about her freedom!
I finally reached out and when I shared what the Lord had told me... she cried!
She cried because she knew this came from the Lord. It confirmed things she had privately thought about. She told me, this "secret" was the very situation, many years ago, that had ultimately turned her away from God!
I didn't know that but God did and in this supernatural encounter, He mended the gap that stood between them!
