Do you ever get overwhelmed when you think of the people all over the world that don’t know Christ Jesus?
Sometimes when I think about the millions or billions of people that know of Him, but don’t really know Him (close relationship) it scares me. I start thinking things like…”I wonder if they will have a chance to know Him like I know Him? What if they don’t? What if they never get a chance and spend their lives without knowing the one that changes everything?”
I get myself all worked up and before I know it, I’m feeling the weight of the world resting on my shoulders…Ha, like it’s my problem to take care of or something! What am I thinking? It’s great and all that I care about the people around me, but it’s not my problem to solve…so why am I all upset over these people that don’t know Christ Jesus?
Then it hit me, I’m not trusting in the Lord. I have to trust Him that He knows the needs of those who are not yet living their lives for Him. When I realized that it’s all in His hands, I was able to relax and feel relief, the weight lifted off my shoulders.
Deuteronomy 32:4 “He is the Rock; his deeds are perfect. Everything he does is just and fair. He is a faithful God who does no wrong; how just and upright he is!”
He’s on it!! He is so amazingly powerful and all knowing!! He’s working in our lives, each and every one of us, gently guiding us towards a place close to Him. Even though there are so many that haven’t reached that point yet, we must patiently wait for the Lord. He’s working in their lives. He knows the hearts that will accept Him and the ones that will not, but the Word of God says that He will give ALL a change to receive His free gift….the gift of salvation.
