Ever feel unseen? Overlooked? Never fear. God is the God who sees.
Read on and to be encouraged. You might be one prayer, one declaration, away from those doors of destiny opening for you.
I was purchasing a few items in a little local organic shop near where my children attended a regular activity. Located just across from an elite dance training facility, it often hired older students in their final year of training. On this night, as a young man served me, I felt a promoting to pray. It turned out he was in his final year of training at the facility across the road. I mentioned my unction to pray and asked him if I could. He readily agreed, so I took his hand in mine and, although I felt the familiar nerves, I prayed.
I felt prompted to call in his destiny. As I did, I sensed he had not felt seen for the years, that he had trained at this facility (and it had been years!). I also believed he had not only felt this way, but in fact he had been overlooked, unseen, and so I called him into the light and I declared he would be seen – that the doors of his destiny would open in the name of Jesus …
I stopped and looked at him and explained what I felt and what I had prayed. He said to me it was exactly how he had felt. That they had never seen him. Constantly overlooked, he felt completely unseen.
He asked me my name, so I gave him my first name. He then asked for my surname. It seemed important for him to know who I was, and so I told him. He thanked me. He looked like he had physically felt something as I prayed, but I didn’t ask. I did not need to.
I went to leave, but as I did, a boldness came over me, and I knew it was time for him to be seen, just as I had prayed. A picture appeared in my imagination and I described it as I acted it out in that little store. I was a little embarrassed, but I really wanted him to know he was not to strive.
I said that he was a king, like royalty, a prince and that he was to imagine that he was, much like the roles he danced. As I spoke this, I stood as tall as I could and I stepped forward, motioning with my arms as royalty would walk through doors, that there was no effort on their behalf to open such doors that doors opened for them. I acted this out for him, and then I turned and looked at him, saying,
‘This is how it will be for you. You will walk and the doors will open. No effort from you. You will not need to push, you just need to walk it out, like a king. The double doors will open.’
He nodded with understanding, encouraged.
‘I call it in, in Jesus’ name,’ I said, smiling. ‘No effort, no striving, it will just happen, and I look forward to hearing about it!’
Well, a little while later, I was back in this shop with a friend. The same young man was working.
I smiled, said hello, and he smiled back. I chatted briefly to my friend while she had her tea, and as we went to leave, he stopped me and said, smiling,
‘You remember a few weeks ago you prayed for me, well…’
I looked and felt such joy rise inside me.
‘You have an offer of contract!?!’ I said
‘I have!’ he said.
I wanted to hug him, with the sheer pleasure of hearing such news!
I told him so and he invited me to hug him… so I did!
‘God IS Good!’ I said to him.
‘He is!’ He said back.
He told me that just after I had prayed for him, he had received a contract offer with a dance company overseas. The company wanted him to start with them soon, but he wanted to finish his course. They were happy to wait for him, so he would go early the following year.
I jumped with sheer delight, and I hugged him again.
I raced out to collect my boy, googling the company. And then ran back so he could tell me the rest of the story.
He had auditioned for a role in a visiting show here in town. The show was being staged by the same company. He had not got a part in the local staging; however, the people who hosted the auditions contacted him and asked if they could pass on his details to the company’s director. The director then expressed a desire to speak with him directly. On speaking, the director offered him a contract of employment overseas, in the company he had auditioned for just a temporary role for. This all happened after the prayer.
He was absolutely delighted!
I was too!
I smiled and repeated,
‘God IS Good!’
I briefly explained all I had done was prophesy, to hear God’s heart for him and his life and to release it in prayer.
He nodded in agreement and seemed to understand. We BOTH knew it was an answer to prayer.
‘Maybe you will come and see me dance.’
‘What an absolute delight, a pure pleasure that would be,’ I responded.
I smiled all the way home for the sheer joy of seeing God express His love for another human being. To be a part, even a tiny part, of another human being’s journey, to let them see that, even if others had not seen him, God had seen him, and God had not forgotten him!
And so too He will not have forgotten you, for He is the God who sees.*
Such answers to prayers, such answers to prophetic decrees, make stopping for the one, even with nerves, so very worth it.
Your destiny, your pathway, is there for you to walk through without striving too because …
God is Good!

I love your stories. So encouraging and inspiring!!
Thank you for your comment AND encouragement! 🙂
God is so awesome. I loved reading this!!
Thank you for stopping by and reading. I loved writing it 😊
Wow! What a wonderful story! God sees us even when we feel that we’re invisible and forgotten and His plans are higher than ours and often aren’t even on our human minded radar. I pray that this young man will do well and go far and will not forget the God who gave him the talent and opened the doors. And, hopefully, he will also get to know Jesus because salvation is important as well.
Please continue to pray for him and I will let him know you are praying for him. I think that will really touch him!
Whether my role is more, or just a touch from God and part of his journey … I don’t know … Blessings Staci! Thank you.
I will pray for him! Keep up the good work! Blessings to you as well! If you get updates please post!
I will absolutely let you know! 😊
Great inspiration for moving forward with each new day.
Hi there. Thank you. It is really moving forward knowing each day is a new day. I visited your blog and was sad to see that you have had a few hospital stays and struggles with various issues with iron levels. A previous pastor of ours lost nearly half the volume of her blood in a Caesar. Prayer covered her and in the ambulance on the way to a high care hospital her body regenerated the entire volume of blood and she suffered no anaemia. She was a bit of a freak show for the Drs who would look at her and her chart and whisper to each other … Her specialist, a atheist Jewish women asked who or what she was and said she would have to now believe in miracles and a God.
I tell this to say I am praying that God will do the same again for you. He is no respecter of people and what He did for her He can and will do for you … Fullness of health no anaemia. Bless you.
Wow Glory be To God
Thanks for reading and commenting. Blessings!
