Wonders In His Name



As I always do, I sent a Bible verse yesterday to each of the twenty women I follow who I counseled at the abortion mill sidewalks. These women chose life over abortion, and many need daily encouragement to stay the course. This is the verse:

He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20

I instantly got a return text from a woman who just met me last week. She was determined to abort when I met her, but changed over the course of our discussion. When she saw her baby on the ultrasound, as well as heard the life-affirming words of the nurse, Sherry, her perspective shifted. We did talk about God, but it was a rushed day with eight women choosing life, so I didn't have nearly the time to share the Gospel as I would have liked.

Here is her response in her text after reading the verse:
C: I needed this. Thank you Vicky! Your verses always come at the right time everyday. JUST when I can't believe I am doing it [having a baby] or questioning my decision.
Me: You are so welcome! I am glad. God is powerful!
C: He is. I have been changed since the day I met you. Thank you so much.

Look at that. Just like the verse said; though a grain of faith is shared, it can move mountains!

That is the power of God. This young lady took one step in obedience to Him, and read just a little of His word daily, and she was TRANSFORMED. And I am overjoyed by the miracle of redemption.

Acts 4:30 

While you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”

So Jesus said to him, “Unless you see signs and wonders you will not believe.”

And his name—by faith in his name—has made this man strong whom you see and know, and the faith that is through Jesus has given the man this perfect health in the presence of you all.

And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues;

“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.
