    Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth. Psalms 46:10 WEBIt was another busy day with so much to do, so many bills, so much going on, the pressure and anxiety kept me up most of the night.

    The multitude rose up together against them, and the magistrates tore their clothes off of them, and commanded them to be beaten with rods. When they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, charging the jailer to keep them safely, who, having received such a charge, threw them in...

    I love those who love Me. Those who seek me diligently will find Me. Proverbs 8:17 WEBI came out of my prayer room that morning feeling like I was walking on a cloud with tears of joy in my eyes. If you would have told me that the world was getting ready to explode, I would have said 'Let 'er blow!'...

Draw Me Close To You

  • Therefore Jesus answered them, 'Don't murmur among yourselves. No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up in the last day. John 6:43 WEB

    I could see from the look on their face that if they could have just one wish granted in the entire world, that it would be for me to stop telling them about Jesus. At other times, I have seen people come to me of their own accord, and shakily say: 'I want what you have.' I have witnessed to people and tried my best to convince them that Jesus is real, and just got a dismal gaze of pure boredom, while others could not wait for me to pray with them.

    Why the inconsistency? It is because the Lord draws some and not others at that same moment. He may draw them later, and I believe that we can help by praying for them to be drawn to Him. The Lord has to open their hearts and minds for them to understand the truth, or it will remain veiled from them. Here are two examples:

    'He said to them, 'But who do you say that I am?' Simon Peter answered, 'You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.' Jesus answered him, 'Blessed are you, Simon Bar Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven' (Matthew 16:15'17).

    Peter recognized that Jesus was the Son of God, then Jesus told him that this was revealed to him by the Father. Most of the people could not see that.

    'A certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, one who worshiped God, heard us; whose heart the Lord opened to listen to the things which were spoken by Paul' (Acts 16:14).

    Lydia understood what Paul was preaching because the Lord opened her heart to understand it, while many others around them, though they heard the same words, did not.

    If you have people you want to come to the Lord, pray for them to be drawn to Him, for their hearts to be opened. You will not have to give long-winded speeches, or persuade them to believe when the time comes.

    When the Father draws them, they will soon be witnessing to you about the goodness of God and they will be inviting you to go to church with them. I also believe that we can pray for the Lord to draw our hearts to Him as well, for no one comes to Jesus except the Father draws them.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I pray that You draw my family and I to You. Open our hearts to understand the gospel, help us to see beyond the natural, and fill us with Your Holy Spirit. May we all come to know You and be saved, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Amen to this one, I have a friend who believes he is an evangelist. He may well be, but I have seen him wittness to people and say the sinners prayer with them. Like the parable of the sower says, they soon fall away. Did the father call them or did they make some kind of emotional decission. Time will tell, but I know that my redeamer lives. I wish everyone knew!

Thank you Pastor Dion !!! I tried to talk to the wife of a person I'm taking care of yesterday, when she was by herself, both are very ill. Tried to talk about life after death, the mystery of creation ... she interrupted me to the point that I knew she had no interest what so ever in hearing about this! I realize know that the Father needs to do the drawing just as you said in today's message! So what is left at this point is to continue and lift her and her husband up in prayer. Her husband also has dementia, but when I mention to him that he and his wife are in my daily prayers, he gives me the biggest smile! Everything is possible with my Lord and for all of us that believe and ask and pray, for it is His will that none should perish, but have everlasting life!!!

Going to another shift this evening with another person, who is extremely ill and just found out that she has Leukemia - so here is another prayer request!

Friday, Sat. and Sun./Mon. more people with very special needs and more prayer requests!

Thank you so much again Pastor Dion for feeding me with the daily word, I thank the Lord for you!!!
