6 years ago, I worked on a heart team in Florida. On this particular occasion, I went to the holding area to pick a woman who was having a redo heart surgery. She was a young woman. As I walked into the holding area, I could tell by the conversations she was having that she was into new age spirituality.
When I introduced myself, she looked at me with a very odd look in her eyes and said,
I was here before Jesus Christ ever was…
Shocked, I physically stepped back. Something was very wrong with this picture. Immediately, I consulted the Lord.
What kind of spirit was in this girl? Did it see the Holy Spirit in me?
My mind was racing with questions and possibilities until I laid them all aside to focus on the reason we were there in the first place, heart surgery.
After I wheeled her into the OR and got her all situated on the table, after she had some antianxiety meds onboard, I leaned in closely to her ear and whispered,
Jesus loves you. He will be with you for this operation. He will watch over you and keep you safe. I will be praying for you.
Then she looked at me with the eyes of a normal, scared girl and said,
You would pray for someone like me?
Yes I would. Because at the name of Jesus, the enemy has to leave. Even in a whisper.I wonder where she is now? I wonder if she ever met Jesus. Lord I hope she did!
