WHAT DO YOU SEE?

God said, "And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." Acts 2:21 KJV

God is no respecter of persons - he wants all of us saved.  How do we know that? "Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons. Acts 10:34 KJV

When you see a homeless person, what do you automatically think? Do you have compassion for them or disdain? I see a person that God loves dearly, so much so, that He sent His son to die on the cross for them. Just like He did for me.

If God loved them so much to do that, can we not lift them up in prayer asking God to move in their spirit and remind them how much God loves them. To let them know inside God wants to help them.

We don't know how they got there, in that place of homelessness. But we can pray for them.

"Lord God, we lift the homeless up to you. We don't know the reasons they became homeless, but you do. Come unto them Lord, let them feel your mercy, your grace and your love overflowing in and towards them. Enter into their situations and work your perfect will in their circumstances. Fill them with strength and a desire to reach out and take your hand out of their situations.  Open the doors Lord and lead them by the hand and restore to them the life you gave them, one of love, mercy and joy. Now it is with faith that I know you will work in their situations for you said whatever we ask in your name you would do. I know it is not your will they be in these situations. What Satan meant for their harm you can turn around and bring good for them. We thank you Lord for this...for moving and shaking the dregs off of their heart, soul and minds. In Jesus name, Amen."

 We who love the Lord must do our part to further God's kingdom and we do this by prayer. We are to intercede for those who need God's help. Interceding for others is important. We can also give to organizations who provide food, clothing and shelter for the homeless. They need our help to continue those services.

Let us love others as God loves us!
