I sent Todd a message today requesting to meet with him for a cup of tea and that I have something to ask him (i.e. join me for church at Easter). He was away from work today so I haven't heard back yet. Please keep this situation in your prayers. Pray especially for my protection as I do what I feel the Lord is asking me to do - pray for protection over my mind from attacks of the enemy.
I was contemplating our free will last night, and wondered how God works around our stubborn nature to bring us to Jesus. I've always believed in a Creator so it wasn't a huge jump for me to surrender to Jesus as my Lord. But what about those who even deny a Creator? I wondered how God could possibly bring Todd into His family without interfering with his free will to believe there is no God - no ultimate Authority - no ultimate Truth - no Saviour who loves him so much that He suffered a very cruel death so Todd could be with our Father in Heaven. Todd has chosen not to believe in God the Creator, never mind Jesus the Saviour! So how will God work with this seemingly impossible situation of Todd's darkened heart without violating his free will. It is an incredible mystery.
All I know is .....
Jesus said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Matt 19:26
Jesus said, "Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them." Matt 18: 18-20
Thank you my Pals for agreeing with me for Todd's heart to be captured by God!
