MAY GOD GIVE YOU PEACE AND REST IN YOUR HEART

I believe in miracles! 

 

There is a mother in our church choir who has been praying for her son for years.  He had fallen deep into sin as a teenager.  She prayed, “God, whatever it takes, save him.”  Instead of turning to Christ, he became a Muslim.  For the next seven years, he buried himself in that devilish doctrine.  But his mother kept praying.  Islam sent the boy into a deep depression.  In his awful despair, he jumped from a six-story building, hoping to kill himself.  Instead, he landed on his feet, crushing a number of bones – and he survived.  Last Sunday, he limped onto our stage and told how Jesus Christ miraculously saved him.  His mother sat in the choir, praising God and remembering her many tears and hours in prayer.  God heard her cry.

 

Thank God for miracles today!

 

A teenage boy in our church spoke of praying that God would use him in his high school, which is located near Ground Zero and the demolished Twin Towers.  He and a friend began to stand outside the school every day, praying out loud.  Some mocked them, but others began to join them.  It led to the school permitting them to conduct Bible classes in the school.  The young man is so overjoyed, and now some teachers are attending.  He said, “Can you imagine God using a scared, little nobody like me?  God still does miracles.”

 

Thank God, he is still the miracle worker!

 

A young man in prison wrote us a letter that moved me deeply.  Talk about miracles!  Here is what he wrote, word for word:

 

“David, I receive your sermons through the mail.  I am one of the school shooters.  I’m the one they blame for starting it all off.  On October 1, 1997, I went into Pearl High School and killed two students and wounded seven.  I also killed my mother before this.  After I came to jail I got saved.  If there is any way that I can help your ministry, I would love to.  Maybe I could give you my testimony.  I’ll do anything to help.  I look forward to your sermons each month…”

 

Yes, I believe in miracles!
