EVEN THE DEVIL OBEYS!
Discussed by Sara Tracey
with The What's UP Radio Program

A very poor woman called a radio station asking for help from God.

A non-believer who was also listening to this radio program decided to make fun of the woman.

He got the woman's address from the radio station and told his secretary to carry a large amount of foodstuff to the woman.

However, he gave the following instruction: "When the woman asks who sent the food, tell her that it's from the devil.''

When the secretary arrived at the woman's house, the woman was happy and grateful for the help received.

She started putting the food packets inside her small house.

The secretary then asked her: ''Don't you want to know who sent the food?''

The woman replied: ''No, I don't care because when GOD orders, even the DEVIL obeys!”

What is the only unpardonable sin that will damn us to hell? Pastor Jarrett passionately pleads with us to give our hearts to Jesus!

PRAYER
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program



Heavenly Father,

Who catches your tears, O LORD? Who comforts you amidst the pain and suffering around the world?

Do the angels in heaven hear you cry out through the night over wayward souls?

What eases your sadness when rebellion against your love continues?

Use me, Father, to bring comfort to the hurting and to ease pain and suffering whenever and wherever I can.

May I join you on my knees during the night. Together, let’s cry out for the salvation of those wandering.

May I not join with the rebellious. May I run from evil so as not to bring you pain.

Father God, hear our pleas by and through the name of Jesus Christ,

Amen
