God's Route to Salvation
Have you ever wondered, why you were born into the family that you’re in? I remember many days as a child feeling so much discontentment with my family. I looked around at the selfishness, the pride and the resentment that was evident in so much of my household and often wondered why I was even born. It was not until I got saved that I began to understand why every detail about my life was necessary.
Acts 17:24-27 talks about how God predetermined our lives – including the time we would be born, and where we would live – this He did so “that they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him” (verse 27). Looking back, it was the hardship and lack of love that I faced in the world that caused me to come running to God. Today as we consider out family members and loved ones who are facing hardships, some astray and seemingly deep in sin, let us remember one thing: God already knows how far they will go. He knows what it will take for them to seek Him.
For some of our family members, life will have to break them down, for some it will take sickness or sorrow, or even rejection to humble them to God. If we are to pray the heart and mind of God for the unsaved, we must understand that these things are often necessary in their path to salvation. Instead of praying that trouble goes away from the unsaved, let us begin to agree with God that trouble is the chastening rod, for those who are predestined to be the heirs of salvation. As their intercessors, let us remind God of His mercy and faithfulness to them, and pray that no matter what happens to their flesh, the soul will be saved.
