Never give up on anyone or on God’s power to work in ways we don’t fully understand.
Relationship with God; surrender > comfort and an “easy” life 🙏❤️
Hard @myutmost devo to read...
“When you see a person who is close to grasping the claims of Jesus Christ, you know that your influence has been used in the right direction. And when you begin to see that person in the middle of a difficult and painful struggle, don’t try to prevent it, but pray that his difficulty will grow even ten times stronger, until no power on earth or in hell could hold him away from Jesus Christ. Over and over again, we try to be amateur providences in someone’s life. We are indeed amateurs, coming in and actually preventing God’s will and saying, ‘This person should not have to experience this difficulty.’ Instead of being friends of the Bridegroom, our sympathy gets in the way. One day that person will say to us, ‘You are a thief; you stole my desire to follow Jesus, and because of you I lost sight of Him.’”
