Our God is greater

Our God is greater, our God is stronger, God You are higher than any other.

Our God is greater…

Greater than the power of Islam in Jahar’s life. God can break through his spiritual blindness and open his eyes to the glorious truth of the Gospel—that it’s not about what we do but about what’s been done for us.

Greater than the power of those seeking to completely isolate Jahar. God can bring the Gospel to him even though the special administrative measures mean that a limited amount of doors are open or God can even open the doors that are currently shut.

Greater than the power of the prosecutors arguing for the death penalty and the jury determining Jahar’s sentence. God can move so that he doesn’t get the death penalty, or if the death penalty is what it takes for his eyes to be opened to his need for a Savior, God can save him before it’s too late so that executing him would only be granting him his freedom.

Greater than the hold that Satan has on Jahar. God can defeat the clearly enormous power that Satan and demonic forces have on him because after all, one day Satan is going to be defeated once and for all.

Greater than the hatred in Jahar’s heart. God can break through the hatred that caused him to commit such a horrific act and completely transform his heart, filling it with love for Jesus and love for other people.

Greater than the darkness that envelops Jahar’s life. God’s light can shine all the brighter into his life because of just how deep the darkness is, and Jahar can run out of that darkness and shame into God’s marvelous light.

In this mission to pray Jahar into God’s Kingdom, may we always realize this incredible truth:

And if our God is for us, then who could ever stop us?
And if our God is with us, then what could stand against?

    We sang this song at church on Sunday, and you should have seen me…….hands raised to Jesus and smiling so huge because He is greater, He is stronger, and He’s got this!

    “Our God is healer, awesome in power.” Our God can heal Jahar’s ear and restore his hearing. Our God can heal any other injuries he is suffering from. Our God can heal any mental health issues he is struggling with. And our God can use that healing to lead Jahar home.

    That picture of Jahar’s heart being filled with a crazy love for Jesus is incredibly beautiful, and it’s what fuels my commitment to pray for him every single day until one of us is in His presence.

      Amen! Praying hard for healing every day in addition to salvation.

      It is such a beautiful picture to think of someone who once would use his mouth to say the Shahada and pray Salat to instead sing praises to Jesus and who once used his hands to do terrible things to instead raise those hands in worship to Him. So ready for that incredible transformation in his life.
