I want to encourage all of you who are seeking the Lord in prayer and supplication for the salvation of family members and it seems as if nothing is “happening”.
You have been praying, fasting, tears of supplication before the Lord for their souls, but day after day nothing changes. Days turn into years and your loved ones are still blind to the truth. DO NOT give up, fight discouragement even when all seems hopeless. We have confidence in God and His Word and we stand and believe by faith.
John 5:14-1 “And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, He heareth us: And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him”
Know first that God’s Word is God’s will. God’s Word tells us
2 Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance”
God wants everyone to be saved!
1 Tim 2:4 “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth”
When we pray according to God’s Word, we pray according to God’s Will.
After praying for 13 years, my oldest grandson Jorden, stepped out of his seat in church this morning and walked up to front to declare his need for salvation found only in Christ Jesus.
His eyes were opened a few months ago to the fact that was a sinner and today, PRAISE GOD!, he reached out and called on Jesus.
The angels in Heaven are rejoicing.
“Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”
Luke 15:10 ESV
Be encouraged dear ones and never lose hope. Believe God for your loved ones to be saved. Keep praying, trusting, believing.
Jorden is the second member of my family to receive God’s gift of salvation in Jesus. My beautiful loving mum was the first but has since gone to be with the Lord.
Perhaps you are reading this post and have not yet received Jesus Christ as your Saviour and Lord. If this is you, please watch the video.
Be a blessing to someone today!
