As you might imagine, by now I’ve talked about the walls people face – and my book about Walls – hundreds of times before live and radio audiences. Yesterday was different. On Chris Fabry’s excellent daily radio program on the Moody Network, we took live calls nationally from people who were facing real walls. In several instances, you could almost feel the walls beginning to fall as we addressed the challenging issues they were facing.
What was different about this show?
- Chris Fabry is an incredible radio host. As the host of a daily show myself, I know how challenging it is to come through in such a personal way to one’s listeners. It has to, first and foremost, be genuine. Chris’s willingness to share about his own walls – and his own assessment at FaithBreakthroughs.com – was a blessing to me and to many.
I was scheduled to do a brief interview at 2PM Central, but that morning I got an email from their production staff stating that Chris really sensed that God was leading him to carry the subject over into two hours – something he stated on the program that he rarely does.
- I hate to say, “You had to be there,” but if you were listening you could actually sense the HOly Spirit working in the lives of the callers in an extraordinary way. And likewise, while there is no way to measure it, each call brought a sense that there were hundreds of other just like that caller who were receiving a special blessing by those testimonies.
Moments in ministry when you feel like God has taken over and said, “Step aside. I have some important work to do, and I’ll take this from here,” are extremely special. Thanks to Him, and for Chris Fabry’s sensitivity to the Holy Spirit’s leading, yesterday’s show was one of those moments.
As it turns out, you didn’t have to be there! Chris puts all of his shows on podcast and you can check out Friday’s show by CLICKING HERE.
