Here’s the reason to have hope — with confidence! — that your lost loved ones, though they have turned away from Christ, will still be saved. Your prayers do make a difference. God has a plan. Jesus stated very clearly in John 6:39-40 and John 10:27-29 that no one — not even the devil — can take them out of the Father’s hands. Discover God’s wonderful purposes for allowing your loved ones to stray into sin for a season. Armed with this truth, you be able to keep praying, but now with joy instead of worry!
Who have you been praying for that has left the Faith? Who are you concerned about? Who do you love dearly, but you’ve got pain, you’ve got suffering because you are watching them destroy their lives? You’re watching them live the life without Christ that you know they need. You’re watching them be enslaved by the devil in sin, maybe in addictions, bad decisions, whatever. And you’re concerned about them, of course. You’re even suffering because your concern for them is so great, and in that you have been praying.
I have some good news to share with you today. I want you to know that Christ has already won the victory for these people that you are concerned about. Christ already is working a plan. Christ has been hearing your prayers. Christ has been united to God the Father with the Holy Spirit – all of God is working to answer your prayers for your loved ones. And I’m going to share with you in this episode how I know that and how you can be sure of that.
