What moves you?

AMED 45.01

Home | A Miracle Every Day | Miracles | What moves you?

Injustice should move you and me to action. It’s different for each person. Some of you are moved by abortion. You want to give a voice to the unborn. Some of you are mad about prejudice and racial injustice. The George Floyd video has ignited a hotbed of protest around the world. Maybe you’re most moved by the modern-day slavery crisis some call “human trafficking”.

Psalm 11:7 gives us hope that God cares about injustice and those who battle it: “For the Lord is righteous, he loves justice; the upright will see his face.” (Psalms 11:7, NIV) 

The Lord is just, and He will reward you for fighting injustice. 

My wife has been moved by the human trafficking problem in Las Vegas and Nevada. She had no personal experience as a prostitute or training as a social worker. I married a great woman, a good girl, you might say. I was somewhat of a bad boy, but God forgave me and gave me a second chance.

I’ve discovered God can move on a heart to fight injustice. One day, Denise shared her burden for girls that had been caught in the sex industry. She started to pray for just one. Then another came, then another. Their lives were shattered by abuse and pain. Each one desperately cried out for help, but there seemed to be no help for them.

Denise started a Bible study for these girls, and their lives began to change. One day, they asked to burn their old sex clothes and toys in one of our dumpsters. One woman was moved to help forgotten and abused women. What moves you to compassion? 

1 John 3:17 talks about the need to respond to a need: “If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?” (NIV)  If we claim to be Christians, something should move us. 

When you find a heart to care, you’ll be moved to action, and lives will change.

You’re a miracle.

    Pastor Paul,
    You hit the mark again.I should say God hit the mark again. I am so thankful for A Miracle Every Day. I was close to being one of those girls I just didn’t have someone to tell me what to do. I did all the damage to myself by myself. Guilt and condemnation is a hard thing to live with. It’s a hard thing to get rid of, but with God’s grace I can face it alittle more each day and survive another day. Prayers and Blessings 🙏❤️😌

      I must say the name of this Devotional section “A miracle everyday” has been just that to me for past 2yrs since I subscribed. God has brought just the message through Eric and now through Paul as well everytime I receive it.

      Just two days ago, I witnessed an injustice and stood against it, protected the victim. My standing against it was obviously not taken well by the party that caused the abuse. Even though I can sense hatred towards me, I am not ashamed of my stand, for Christ also came to set the oppressed / captive free.

      This message was a comfort to me, that I did what Jesus would have done. I pray the person who was wrong will have a heart change.

      May God give us the strength to stand against injustice and set the captives free.
