In light of the news about Jahar facing the death penalty, I wanted to share a Bible verse that I heard tonight and think is relevant:
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. (1 Corinthians 15:58)
We could let the Enemy sneak despair into our heads, or we could stand firm, be unmoved, and continue to trust that God hears our prayers and desires Jahar to know Him and be saved.
We could stop praying for Jahar and writing letters to him, or we could continue and even up our efforts, knowing that our labor is not in vain.
I choose to not be moved and to continue praying for Jahar daily for as long as it takes, knowing that God is moving in Jahar’s heart and life. How about you?
Lord, I believe. Help my unbelief.
