Be Yourself

Richard Roberts

Often, when I go into a grocery store, people will recognize me and ask for prayer. And when they do, I don’t say, “Let’s go out in the parking lot.” I stop whatever I’m doing and pray for them right there.

One time I was in the frozen food section with ice cream in one hand and frozen vegetables in the other when a woman came up and asked me to pray for her to be healed. When I put down the frozen food and laid my hands on her head, I thought she was going to go through the ceiling because of my cold hands. She said, “I didn’t know the anointing was so cold!” I said, “No Ma’am, That was the frozen food.”

Why do I tell you that story? Because it’s real, just like Jesus was real. Sometimes people see Lindsay and me on television and they want to know “Are they real?” I believe Jesus wants all of us to be real. We all have our faults and quirks, but God created us to be unique individuals. There’s no one else like you on earth.

So if you’ve been putting yourself down, stop it. Stop thinking you can’t be used by God. Be yourself! When God leads you to touch someone with His healing power, don’t worry about what to say or do. In Mark 13:11 NIV, Jesus told His disciples, “Do not worry beforehand about what to say. Just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit.” It’s not your power; it’s God’s ― and He wants you to allow Him to work through you. When you’re not afraid to be yourself, He can work through you any place in the world; even in the middle of a grocery store!
