Read Acts 26:12-18
18 to open their eyes, so they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God. Then they will receive forgiveness for their sins and be given a place among God’s people, who are set apart by faith in me.’ – Acts 26:18 NLT
Hello family, I have been avoiding writing this devotion, but God won’t let me avoid it any longer. The events in Orlando are sad and tragic. Now we are sorting through our emotions, analyzing information as it comes in. Thinking about The shooting of Christina Grimmie and The Shooting at the nightclub, i asked God What do i do with all of this bad news. I am sick of it.
God said “pray for them! Pray for the shooter of Christina and the nightclub. Pray for the survivors of the nightclub.” The shooters did not get to the decision to do what they did over night. They are no better than us, born into sin. They need Christ just as much as we do. If God pulled back his grace from us for just a moment we would be in a tragic state. So lets Pray for the gunman in both events, pray that they come to Christ. Don’t dismiss them. Christ didn’t dismiss us.
Pray for the survivors of the nightclub shooting. Yes the life style is wrong, again they did not wake up over night and start that life. God showed me the trail of events that lead to my addiction to pornography. I did not hit rockbottom over night. God also showed me the people i had hurt but were still praying for me. Now its my turn to pray. We are the light of the world lets show it! God saved Saul and turned him into Paul.
Much Love & God Bless
