Feel Like Throwing In The Towel For That Person You’re Praying For?

If we judge the outcome of a situation based on what we see or what we’ve always known, we are judging with human wisdom, not God’s wisdom.

God looked at Gideon, in the weakest of tribes at the time, a cowardly man, and called him a mighty warrior. God didn’t judge him by even his present fearful condition. God, in His omniscience, saw Gideon for what he was to become in the future.

God looked at big-mouthed Peter before he even surrendered his life to Him and said he would be a rock that will be used to build the church.

God looked at Saul when he was an ardent persecutor of Christians, and said of him, “this man is My chosen instrument to take My name to Gentiles, kings, and the Israelites.” (Acts 9:15)

So may we not write off anyone, for God alone knows the final outcome of their life. May we instead obey God’s command to walk by faith and not by sight, and hope for things not yet seen in those we are praying for.

Someone prayed for you and didn’t give up. Such faith is pleasing to God and can move mountains.

Let us speak life over those we are praying for, no matter how much darkness they are entrenched in, believing that He who is in us is greater than he who is in the world. And our God hears prayer and He answers. He will do His part to reach that lost soul. May we do ours.

About BetterThanPrinceCharming

Ever since Kindergarten I've dated. From Bobby Well onward, I had over four dozen boyfriends. Fifth grade was my high year: sixteen sweethearts. I went through a few boys every year after that during middle school, and high school was where my dry season hit. Between freshman and senior year I had a consumation of nine boyfriends. I was on a hunt. I'd seen every Disney princess movie, and I was bound and determined to find my prince. Prince Charming wasn't in a far away land, he was in Miami, and I wasn't going to stop until I found him. So I thought. Villains are usually the one's who get in the way of your pursuit for happiness, not Heros, right? Well, in my case, it was both. View all posts by BetterThanPrinceCharming
