Helpless!

Have you ever tried to help someone and to your sorrow and dismay, discovered that they really didn't want your help! Really what they want is someone to listen to their problems and troubles, not just a few times, but over and over again. They are not willing to do anything that will change their situation. All of the advice or suggestions given, are met with the response, "I've already tried that."

Now I need to vent just a little. Some may say, "Well, that's your job. You are supposed to listen to people and try to help them." My conclusion of the whole entire matter is this:
  • My job is to live as closely as I can to our heavenly Father.
  • My job is to lead people to the source who can help them, whose name is Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ, in English for you)
When a person refuses to come to Jesus Christ, who can help them with all of their situations, and past circumstances, then you are correct, there is no hope for their past, no hope for their current situation, no hope for their future, as long as they refuse to believe in Him. When a person refuses to accept this belief, then nothing that YOU do, no amount of listening to them, no amount of praying with them, will help that person.

But is that the end of the matter! No!

I believe with all of my heart, that Jesus Christ is the ANSWER for all of mankind's need's. We can still pray that the Ruach HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) will be sent to them to lead them to Jesus! We must continue to do battle for these tormented souls and ask our Father for increased strength and endurance to continue the battle for their soul.

"O My Father! My heart is so burdened and overcome with the sadness in people's lives who have suffered at the hands of evil and vile people. My Father I ask you to encourage every believer out there, every minister who has attempted to deal with people who have no hope. Let your strength be their strength and don't let them give up on people. Help us Lord, to continue to be an encourager to the needy, to those lost in helplessness. We praise you most compassionate, loving Father! Amein!
