Different Journeys
Same Destination

Sometimes we hear or read about spectacular testimonies of instant transformations and miraculous salvations, and we are tempted to think that God always works in the same way. 

However, God’s work on a person’s heart is a process and a journey. No two journeys are the same. 

Some get the fireworks, some get the fire. In both cases, the transformative touch is from God, whether swift and spectacular or slow and profound. 

You simply can’t get the testimony without the test. 

A self-proclaimed atheist, Tatiana came to our meeting in Jerusalem out of sheer curiosity and desire for fellowship. 

It took her a while, but she started experiencing something that could only be described as God’s touch. 

She finally agreed for us to pray for her, and by the end of it her whole appearance changed, a huge smile made her face radiant. 

Someone who didn’t believe in God at all couldn’t deny His presence when her heart was filled with it. 

To be able to witness these journeys, processes and encounters is beautiful because it’s a reminder to not despise humble beginnings or the work that God calls us to put into reaching people for Christ. 

The sown seed will grow, whether we see it or not. We believe God is working in people’s hearts while we sow the seeds of the Gospel in them, because He promised us that His Word will not return to Him void. 

So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

Isaiah 55:11

Keep praying for our evangelism work and the people we are reaching with the gospel in Israel. May their hearts be open and receptive, so that God’s seed will accomplish the transformation we pray for. 

Until “…all Israel will be saved.” (Romans 11:26)
