SEEK GOD, NOT PEOPLE


Years ago when Tina and I were pastoring our first church, the Brownsville revival was at its height. The leaders of the revival were doing a national tour, and a couple from the church took me with them to one of the meetings in our area. At the end of the service, we were invited to the floor of this large arena to receive prayer. As I made my way to the floor, like many other people, I was following Pastor Kilpatrick around, wanting him to pray for me. My thinking was that he had some special anointing and only his prayers would be good enough. Finally, the Lord spoke to me and said, "Stand still, and I will send someone to pray for you." I did as the Lord commanded me, and shortly thereafter two men came up to me and started praying for me. The next thing I knew I was laying on the floor looking up at the ceiling after having been slain in the Spirit. The lesson I learned that night is that we have to seek God and not people.
