Day 45: 50 Days of Change

“You must warn each other every day, while it is still “today,” so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God.”Hebrews 3:13 NLT
There are some people in our lives that no matter what we do or what we say will convince them that Jesus is the answer for them. They have truly become deceived in their sin and hardened towards God. We may then feel that it is just best to give up on them and move in to someone who is ready. Why waste our time and energy if it is impossible for us to get through.
God is the God of the impossible, we must never forget that. When we experience a person so hardened by sin and God, there is only two things we can do. First we continue to love them showing them the .ove of Christ though who we are. Second we need to pray for them earnestly. If you have written someone off as unsalvageable then that is the person you need to be on your needs petitioning God for. Not we can only do two things but God can do much more.
God can work at breaking down the walls that was placed up. Or he can show us the cracks and how to show Christ love through those holes. He can also provide Saul moments where he reveals himself to the person in a real way. There is no limits on how God can work in the life of those who need to meet him. Pray certainly has been shown to increase probability of amazing things happening. I wonder how many of the early church were praying that Saul the persecutor would meet Jesus? And repent turning from his evil ways? 
Don’t give up on those who are hardened. Give it over to God and keep pleading for them. If you have someone like that we would love to join you in your pray. Add a comment with their first or last name and we will pray for them. United in prayer we can move mountains and release the ‘Paul’ inside those around us.
Jesus, in our strength we are lost, but we come to you in our weakness asking for strength to reach those who are hardened to your call on their lives. We know from your word that you are knocking on the hearts of all, waiting for them to open the door to the truth of salvation. We want to be used to help them get to at point. Let us not give up on anyone who is not a believer, let us instead fall to our knees and petition them before your throne for a miracle. Jesus the lost matter to you, they all matter to you, so they matter to us. Use me. Amen
