There is a passage of scripture I’ve been mulling over the past few weeks. In the Message Bible it goes like this, “Open up before God, keep nothing back; He’ll do whatever needs to be done. He’ll validate your life in the clear light of day and stamp you with approval at high noon.” It’s found in Psalm 37:5-6. How cool is that? God doesn’t overstate in His Word, and most if not all of His promises are conditional. We usually have something we have to do first to be able to receive the promise He has for us and this passage is no different.
We have to open up and keep nothing back. He wants everything. He wants the tiniest fragment of our hearts and minds that we may be withholding from Him.
I’ve seen men and women throughout these past 14 years come in to the SaveOne Bible study and hold back. They don’t open up completely at first because they’re ashamed or scared. But after a few weeks when they start to feel God’s presence in their shame and fear, they start to let things go. They open up, it begins to feel good and they start holding nothing back. They see this as an opportunity to be free and so they release more and more to God as they delve deeper in to His Word through the SaveOne study. And can you believe what happens at that point? He does whatever needs to be done! He validates their lives! He stamps them with His approval! These men and women leave the class free from horrible bondage, and forgiven of a sin they thought they could never be forgiven for.
Then you know what happens next? It’s uncanny how many people God steers to those folks who need to hear about that validation; that approval from on High. They are able to tell their stories with boldness to keep the next person from ever making the choice of abortion. It’s a beautiful process that only God can orchestrate. I love being part of SaveOne and getting to see this happen over and over. We’re literally seeing abortion end around our world through healed and whole individuals able to spread the Truth!
Here is just a sampling of what we get to hear every day while teaching this class. This is an excerpt from an email I received from a lady I’m leading through the class online.
Question asked from SaveOne book: Regarding your abortion experience, name something you believed to be fact, and now realize it is not.
Answer: “That it had to consume my life, that I had to feel guilty and punish myself always for this sin, and it’s just not true. I can live a life to be proud of going forward as a good daughter, Mom, and wife. I will always have in the back of my mind a reserved place for rejoicing and looking forward to the day I see my child in heaven. I hope she will be proud of my life and glad to call me Mommy finally.”
Thank you guys for all you do to help us help so many…
