He’ll never be saved.
He doesn’t want to be saved.
He wants nothing to do with Jesus.
He’s too deep into radical Islam.
He has too much evil in his heart.
He has so much blood on his hands.
His heart is filled with so much hatred and anger.
He’s so lost.
Solitary confinement is going to drive him crazy.
They have him so isolated.
He has hardly any chance to hear the gospel.
What a ridiculous idea.
You’re hoping against hope.
He won’t come to Jesus because he will lose his family.
You’re crazy to believe that God has called Jahar.
You’ve made this up in your head.
He’s too far gone.
It will never happen.
It’s so easy to let the enemy fill our mind with doubts…to fill our hearts with fear…to steal our hope. But the good news is that HE has the last word. Not us. Not the enemy. Not the haters. Not the prison system. Not the criminal justice system. Not the jury. Not his family. Not even Jahar himself. Our Heavenly Father has the last word over Jahar’s eternity. If He has chosen him and He has purposed for Jahar to be his, it will happen.
Let His voice calm the violent sea and speak courage over you. Let His love silence your fear and restore your hope. Let His voice shatter the darkness. Remember that when He speaks, strongholds surrender. Remind yourself that His name alone overcomes the enemy. HE has the last word. It is finished.
Lord, I thank You that there is nothing anyone can do to thwart Your plans for Jahar. I thank You that You and You alone have the last word over Jahar’s life. I pray, Jesus, that You would providentially orchestrate every single circumstance so that Your plans for his life will be fulfilled. I know that nothing will happen that is outside of Your will. Protect our minds and hearts from the doubts and lies that the enemy tries to feed us. Remind us daily that You have the last word. We trust You completely with his life Jesus. In Your matchless name-above-all-names we lift him up to you, Amen.
