Last night we spoke with a friend who is going into a difficult situation and asked for prayer. He is the in-between person to help try to resolve conflict, ascertain priorities, and work for peace between conflicted factions of his people, who are trying to end the ongoing oppression of the government ruling their country. This morning on the bus, the Scripture reading of the day was Matthew 19:26 ” Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.”
Last night as we spoke, he spoke of Nehemiah and how they had their weapons in one hand, and their tools in the other-building safety for their people (a wall of protection), but watching in case the enemy came, or their were divisive, devious, sneaky attacks to keep them from building peace and safety. Well chosen Scripture, as he goes to seek peacemaking. He is a soldier. I have seen him pastor those around him, although he doesn’t call it that. He’s a good listener.
God bless you, my friend. May God, the source of all wisdom, give the wisdom you’re asking for.
