You may have noticed that I share a lot of David Wilkerson’s devotionals here on my blog. The ones that really touch me right where I am have usually ended up on my blog. Well, today’s devotional was one of those, so I posted it here Wed. morning, the same day I received it in my email. It was about believing when all means fail.
Here’s a quote from that article:
Blessed are those who believe when there is no evidence of an answer to prayer—who trust beyond hope when all means have failed.
I found out tonight that David Wilkerson was killed in a car wreck today (Wednesday) in Texas. His wife, Gwen, was airlifted to the hospital and is in critical condition. Please pray for her and the rest of the family.
His last blog post seems especially fitting. It seems that all means have failed for him in an earthly sense. But as some of my Facebook friends have noted, “… unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.”
We are believing for thousands of people like him to be raised up – true prophetic voices in these last days.
And this part of his post seems especially prophetic:
“To those going through the valley and shadow of death, hear this word: Weeping will last through some dark, awful nights—and in that darkness you will soon hear the Father whisper, “I am with you. I cannot tell you why right now, but one day it will all make sense. You will see it was all part of my plan. It was no accident. It was no failure on your part. Hold fast. Let me embrace you in your hour of pain.” Beloved, God has never failed to act but in goodness and love.
I will miss him. I was so inspired by his words and his life.
But God has a plan, and I can’t wait to see what He’s about to do.
