Here is a story of two girls who are about the same age coming to the Family Life Centre. In the morning, a young girl I was looking after told me she believes in Jesus. I wasn't sure she was getting proper Christian direction, because she had question after question about God, heaven, hell, Jesus and the devil. At one point, she asked me to
tell her the story of Noah. I was very happy to do so, but it took longer than it should have because she kept interrupting with really good questions.
In the afternoon, during our Bible time at Kid’s Club, a little girl questioned out loud whether she actually believes in God or not. This little girl has been told the gospel many times. But like so many people, her unbelief is overwhelming her.
The two girls are obviously at different spiritual stages and yet we know that this can flip-flop. The believer becoming doubtful and the one full of doubt becoming a true believer. Because only God knows the future, it is up to us to pray for both girls. Father God, please take measures to insure the believer stays believing until the day she is brought home. And Father, please draw the unbeliever into a faith in Jesus that is real. Amen.
