So much to share with you. On the personal level we are making ourselves more and more available to what the Lord is doing around us, with neighbors, family, believers and unbelievers who need to speak, to vent, to be encouraged, to pray with, to be served.
On the national level, the French (not the majority but the opposition is growing) fellow citizens are starting to have enough of seeing their world collapse, their liberties disappear, to hear threats from everywhere to force them to “choose” to comply with the government and who realize that now their life and the life of their children is in real danger. Today in Nice, 2 demonstrations in the streets took place. The second one was counting easily 10 000 people, a beautiful testimony to those in France who have believed from the mass media that everybody in the land has followed the directive of the President, to get vaccinated. France is gripped by lots of fear mixed with hope and anger on one side, fear and blind compliance on the other side, the majority.
These changes of our life are bringing people to be more honest and there is a definitive opening of the heart of many towards hearing about the Good News of the Savior.
On our side, we realize afresh like Mrs H.Taylor says it so well: “that only a deeper work of grace in ourselves can enable us effectually to strengthen others.” ‘For their sake I sanctify myself that they also may be sanctified through the Truth.’
There is no place for compromise in our lives. The time is critical. We need to be sold out to the Lord and His call more than ever. We need each other. We work together through encouragements, praying for one another, spending time with one another, helping others in many ways. This is not the time to slumber. The darkness is trying to take over.
And the Lord is doing amazing works in hearts still. There is a blessed stir around us. In my family (in France) many are starting to pay attention to what we are saying and are changing direction, getting closer to the Lord. The enemy is not happy to loose his victims and is attacking. We need your prayers for our protection. But what a huge JOY to see some of my most broken family members falling in love with Jesus!!! All the years of intercessions, of sharing, of being mocked or despised by them is just starting to change radically. Also my father just died today. All my siblings are far far apart from one another. Now we are getting closer and closer because of his death. Only God can do something beautiful like this!
Praise to our great God!! Glory, and honor and power to our most Holy God and Savior, now and forever!!!
