Threats Update

Shiite Muslims – a people God is pursuing to be Jesus’ Bride


No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. Romans 8:37 ESV
Many of you prayed for Zeina, a young Shiite follower of Christ being ridiculed by colleagues at her job while she worked on an important outreach project to proclaim stories of Jesus to women. I asked her today about the bothersome young men. She smiled and said, "Oh, they stopped cursing me! They have completely changed, and now they are treating me with kindness." They said to her, "You love the Messiah? Well, then we guess you are good."
Thank you for praying for her, dear friend of His Shiite Bride. He has heard your humble pleas for Zeina. Continue to pray for her and the special outreach project she is working on to reach Muslim women with the Truth.
Agree in prayer and celebrate with us through this special devotional from Oswald Chambers today:
Oswald Chambers' Daily Devotionals
March 7, 2009, The Source of Abundant Joy
Paul was speaking here of the things that might seem likely to separate a saint from the love of God. But the remarkable thing is that nothing can come between the love of God and a saint. The things Paul mentioned in this passage can and do disrupt the close fellowship of our soul with God and separate our natural life from Him. But none of them is able to come between the love of God and the soul of a saint on the spiritual level.
The underlying foundation of the Christian faith is the undeserved, limitless miracle of the love of God that was exhibited on the Cross of Calvary; a love that is not earned and can never be. Paul said this is the reason that "in all these things we are more than conquerors." We are super-victors with a joy that comes from experiencing the very things which look as if they are going to overwhelm us.
Huge waves that would frighten an ordinary swimmer produce a tremendous thrill for the surfer who has ridden them. Let's apply that to our own circumstances. The things we try to avoid and fight against tribulation, suffering, and persecution are the very things that produce abundant joy in us.
We are more than conquerors through Him in all these things, not in spite of them, but in the midst of them. A saint doesn't know the joy of the Lord in spite of tribulation, but because of it. Paul said, "I am exceedingly joyful in all our tribulation" (2 Corinthians 7:4 ).
