Midweek Inspiration | My Prayer For You

My prayer for you is simple.

Go out into the world.

Speak truth and mirror love.

He’s here, not up above.

 

Know that He is with you.

Each and every day.

Abide in Him and trust Him.

He’ll show you what to say.

 

Beloved may His cleansing

overwhelm your wearied soul.

May His Spirit renew you daily,

once broken, now you are whole.

 

We don’t have to know everything

that’s where He comes in.

We’ve found our true purpose,

and He’s defeated sin.

 

For once we were dirty

and forsaken on this earth.

But now we’re made holy,

and He has become our worth.

  1. Wow! So perfect! It goes so well with what I just experienced today. God brought us where we now live over 2 months ago, and I knew it was so I would take his gospel to the people here, so I have been praying about how to do that. So, one thing I did was look for a Newcomer’s Club, and I joined it. Today we had a ladies’ luncheon, so I attended it. I prayed ahead of time that the Lord would seat me near the people he wanted me to sit and talk with, and that he would give me the words to say, and that he would open the conversation, so that I knew this was the moment to speak. And, he did.

    He seated me between two women who are atheists, and who are humanist celebrants, i.e. they perform secular (non-religious) marriage ceremonies for all people. They had asked me out in the foyer what brought me to this area, so I told them it was God, and that I was a Christian, and that I knew God brought me here for a reason, of course, not knowing at that moment that I was speaking to atheists, not that it would have made any difference. We had an enjoyable lunch together, and chit-chatted about stuff, but all the while I was praying for the Lord to direct my conversation and to give me the words to speak.

    Well, they both began asking me questions about my faith, and so I answered their questions, and then they told me about their beliefs, and some of why they believe the way they do. It was all friendly. They were nice ladies. I liked them. But, it really challenged me, which is good, because I am used to talking mainly with Christians, or with people who say they believe in God, so this was quite different. But, I do believe it was of God, and that he gave me the words he wanted me to speak. And, I hope that I will have other opportunities to share the love of Jesus with them and with other women here, too. Sue

    1. That’s so wonderful to hear! No lie, today I got the inspiration to make a note to write a post titled, What Do I Do With People Who Don’t Believe, and as I said that title out loud, immediately my next sentence was, “Hear what they have to say.”

      It’s too easy for believers to shut down nonbelievers. For radical Christians to go out of their way trying to “save” others. It’s becomes all about the mission and not about being Christlike. People nod their heads or shake their heads and wait till they can open their mouths to preach the Good News. But by this time the one they are trying to preach to is lost already because no connection was made.

      I know a number of people who don’t believe and I hear you, I feel the challenge. But what He has shown me through the years, especially in college, is that I just need to be myself. God is my life, Christ is with me, the Holy Spirit is in my veins. So I need to just let Him flow out and reflect naturally, and as you experienced, that’s what happens. People get to know me, and they hear about my life. They see why I believe, and they don’t feel pressure and because they don’t feel pressure, they don’t mind talking about Him more, or asking questions. I think that’s what Jesus did, a lot of times, He waited till He asked, and then He was prepared.

      May God continue to guide you and strengthen you. May you be a blessing to these ladies πŸ™‚ may they be a blessing to you.

      1. I agree! In fact, I was praying that the Lord would help me to just be natural, and for it not to be forced, but that he and his word would just flow out of me as naturally as it would if I was talking about anything else, and I was definitely myself. πŸ™‚ And, I wanted him to open the conversation, not me, and he did. And, that is the best way!

        Thanks for what you just shared with me.

      2. πŸ™‚ Yes, sometimes I check myself to make sure I don’t sound like a text book or a How To Talk About God kinda thing haha. Because He’s living and His word is in our heart, He’ll provide and He isn’t Someone to be afraid of talking about. All of these things are just encouraging especially when someone generally is curious, that’s the best kind of door I’ve seen God give me. πŸ™‚
