Redemptive Word Of Affirmation

A redemptive act can be as simple as speaking a word of affirmation to a child who has been abused or neglected or bullied. That word of affirmation may possibly save their life. One day when we were eating at a restaurant I noticed a large family who had gathered to eat at several tables pulled together. There was a young man about 15 years old that the Lord began speaking to me about. I went over and gave the word the Lord had given me for him. Weeping, His dad pulled me aside and told me that I had just saved his son’s life. He was planning to commit suicide but that word spoke specifically to his need. The boy then joined us and thanked me and told me what it meant to him and how it had changed him and given him hope.
