Proverbs 21:1 – “The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: He turneth it whithersoever He will.”
If the heart of a king is in our Lord’s hand, how much more the heart of our dear and near ones? Some of you might be praying for the salvation of your loved ones, you do not want them to die in their sins, you want them to know our Lord and Saviour, the one and only one who can save our souls and fill our emptiness with His perfect love, but they just don’t get our Lord. They just don’t understand His love, they just can’t see Him for who He really is, He is invisible to them and worse unreal to them. Don’t lose heart dear reader, take it to our Lord in prayer, remind Him of this verse and know for sure that their hearts are in our Lord’s hand, and He will turn their hearts towards Him in due time.
Some of you may be facing a difficult time at work or in your neighbourhood as well, but again, ask the Lord to change their hearts in your favour, and He will make even the head of your organisation and your worst persecutor to turn their hearts in your favour.
All things are possible for our Lord. Nothing, absolutely nothing is impossible for Him. As long as we are with Him, He will remain with us and help us grow in wisdom and in stature before God and man.
Praise Him, praise Him all the time and don’t lose hope. Trust in Him.
Dear Father, thank you for always being there for us, for taking good care of us. Lord, we know that in due time you will make our loved ones, our entire household turn to you, you will save them. We know that they are sleeping now, and you will raise them up to you, for your glory, in your perfect timing. We also all those people into your hands who are so very difficult to us, help us to forgive them and to love them and turn their hearts in our favour. To you alone O Lord be all glory and honour and praise. In Jesus name we pray, Amen!
