Mighty to Save

Yesterday we sang the Hillsong song Mighty to Save in church.
My heart broke for these people who are giving their lives up for their love of the Lord.
What is happening there is a real hell.
We cannot fathom what it means to be a persecuted Christian in this way.

We serve a God that is so much bigger.
He is fighting this battle for them.
He is more powerful and mighty.
Just like He delivered Miriam Ibrahim from lashings and death,
surely He can deliver thousands more, He has before.

Saviour, He can move the mountains
My God is Mighty to save, 
He is Mighty to save.

Forever, Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave, 
Jesus conquered the grave.

My prayer is that through this God's glory 

will spread across the globe.
I am sure there are those who are questioning 
God's sovereignty and hand in all of this.
But my prayer is that hearts will be transformed,
people will turn to see Jesus' light in this incredible darkness.

Shine your light and let the whole world see, 
We're singing for the glory of the risen King... Jesus

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Who shall bring any charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:31-39 ESV)

  1. What a good post Michelle. Praying with you and asking God for a miracle that the whole world will be in awe of the power of our Lord and Saviour.
