Expected Visitor: A Devotional of Faith Beyond Fear — 11 Comments

  1. Thank you for this. Cults can be so intimidating. They have all the right answers. Sometimes I am afraid to answer the door when they knock. I love this story of hope and God’s love to reach the lost. It is so inspiring.

  2. Diane, what a sweet picture of Jesus seen in your devo. He is willing (Luke 5:12-13) if we ask. He wants a relationship with us and you illustrated how important that relationship and testimony both are as we share our faith. Our religion is a relationship with Jesus. Go and tell (Matthew 28:19-20).

  3. Very encouraging devotional! Reminds me of Luke 12:11-12 where Jesus says not to think about what you ought to say, but the Holy Spirit will give you the words to say. All we need to do is ask him to use us to speak to them. Encouraged to be a light.. and a witness of the Gospel!

    • Thank you, Mandy, for your observation about how this ties in with what Jesus says in Luke 12. The Holy Spirit does inspire us to speak what the listener needs to hear. Your insight is encouraging. God bless you, sweet sister. Shalom to you. 🙂

  4. Sharing our faith seems to be a fear most of us have experienced during our walk. I for one have experienced those fears more than I care to admit. However, it never fails that once I step across that line [fear], I’ve had some of the most incredible encounters. I love it when I step out, and God shows up in someone’s life. Only God could have known how to connect me with the person who needed Him the most in those moments during my obedience. As I read this post, my heart knew Jenny’s passion to be used by God and in the younger woman’s life. T

    his story has sparked a desire in me to step out more across that line that holds so many of us back. Thank you, Diane, for sharing this story with us.

    • Wow! Thank you so much, sister Castle Andrews, for sharing your thoughts on this subject. I am glad this story inspires you to share your faith more. I pray the door of opportunity opens for you this very week. Perhaps it will open in a less conventional way like online or something. God has a purpose and a plan for each of us, and I pray He uses you–a willing and chosen vessel–to rescue a person who is waiting to meet our sweet Lord Jesus. God bless you!!! Feel free to share the link. 🙂
