…But God Overcame

“They were angry and began to persecute me.”

“In the past, the Devil used my sickness to make me think that my life was worthless.”

“Two days ago, a person came to our house and threatened to kill us if we failed to return his money the next day. He was very angry and furious over his money.”

“I lost my parents when I was too young, my whole life turned upside down that shook my education and character. There was no one to guide and we were left alone.”

 

That’s a lot of pain, isn’t it?

Each of these statements was made by a person in India who has faced extremely difficult circumstances. Their nation has so much brokenness intertwined with its vibrance and beauty, allowing spiritual darkness to dominate many families. And in this nation where few know of Jesus, those who follow Him risk losing their relationships, rights, and even their very lives.

And yet, we cling to the hope of the Lord and believe that He is strong and powerful. Our God can overcome anything.

How do we know this?

Among many reasons, God overcame every single situation listed above. He has overcome the heartache, insecurity, addiction, persecution… all of it. And we believe He will do it again.

 

Here’s how each person quoted above describes the changes that took place after God reached them through one of our programs:

“They were angry and began to persecute me… but I never left my God. He has been very faithful to me at all times.”

“In the past, the Devil used my sickness to make me think that my life was worthless, and now he is using my own people to discourage and distract me from following Jesus… but I want to follow Jesus the rest of my life.”

“Two days ago, a person came to our house and threatened to kill us if we failed to return his money the next day. He was very angry and furious over his money… but after your prayers, he became very gentle. Yesterday, when he came for his money, he was completely a changed person.”

“I lost my parents when I was too young, my whole life turned upside down that shook my education and character. There was no one to guide and we were left alone… but the Bible Club poured a new life in us and I feel like home.”

Join us in praying “Thy Kingdom come” over the nation of India… because we know that He can overcome this nation’s spiritual darkness and decrease persecution just as quickly as it grew.
