Romans 9:14-16 (NET) What shall we say then? Is there injustice with God? Absolutely not! 15 For he says to Moses: “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.”So then, it does not depend on human desire or exertion, but on God who shows mercy.
Jide was deeply disturbed because he had prayed for several years for his sister to be saved and she was not saved. It got to a time that he stopped praying because he started to think that ‘maybe she was not predestined for salvation’. But Jide couldn’t be more wrong. That was a call that only God could make concerning a person. His job was to continue to pray and preach until he sees results.
There is so much about the divine nature that our minds do not have the capacity to understand. If we think our salvation is based on our desire for truth alone, then we would be sorely wrong. There is much more at play when it comes to the salvation of a soul. We must never forget that it is a product of God’s mercy and grace. And we can influence this for our loved ones and neighbors by interceding for them before the throne of grace. Because we have eternal life, we too can influence things that can only be influenced from the realm of eternity.
If you have a loved one who has not received Christ, do not cease in prayer and supplication for him or her. Pray more for mercy than anything else when praying for such a person to be saved.
Go into today remembering that all of your friends and relatives in Christ would spend eternity in the presence of God, and you will be together.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
