Good evening sister saints!
I hope your day went well and that you are still overcoming through the evening (or day or whatever time it is there lol).
Today I had something awesome happen. I was waiting in the van while brother James went into the store and a woman walked up to the van and asked what our story was. I was able to give her a gospel card, tell her who we are, what we do and preached the gospel to her. She said she was born into the southern Baptist faith but had since then left it. She agreed with much that we talked about (the lies of man made religion, people seeking after the flesh etc) and then she said she was doing the same and that she was not living as she knew she should. She mentioned that maybe the people who go to church won't go to hell because they don't know any better. I explained that being deceived is a transgression, just as the bible shows us about Eve and that transgression is sin. I explained that if we seek Jesus, He said we WILL find Him. I also shared about the fact that we can have wisdom if we ask for it as we see in the book of James. She said she was trying to clean herself from drugs and also trying to seek God but she lays awake at night, when she's weak, and makes deals with the devils. I explained who we used to be and that there is hope if she repents and that we are here to help her, that she can be set free from the grips of satan.
My heart went out to this woman who admitted what she did, going into details of which I could relate, of her bondage under satan and sin. But I shared that blessed hope with her, she got a bible and the gospel and an offer in love, to help her (and her boyfriend) in the things of God. If she seeks Jesus, she will find Him and He can set her free, I'm living proof of it.
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
Interesting this happened today because, I'm serious here, this morning I woke up thinking about that time in my past and how I literally had weeping and gnashing of teeth when satan had his power over me. (I had demonic influence in my life in a very powerful way before Christ.) But God heard my cries and here I am today, a new creation serving the King of Kings and Lord of Lords because He set me free. By His blood I was set free from eternal damnation and now am a daughter of the One who is of the Light, the Light that rules over the darkness. That hope is there for her too and I was blessed beyond words, to offer that to her. I hope she seeks Him like a treasure because that's what He is.
You could give me all the money in the world and I would consider it dung compared to giving that life saving truth to another hungry soul. I'm not worthy to even know this precious truth, not to mention, give it to someone else but I'm so thankful to be able to do so. What a blessed gift we sisters have to give to the lost, let us treasure that and be always looking for ways to share it and be ready when someone asks. Then, we need to move on and trust in God for whatever happens with those people if we never hear from them, His will be done.
Have a blessed evening sister saints.
Love to you all,
