Precious in the sight of the Lord
is the death of His saints.
Many people died last week due to the tornadoes in the south. There was another sudden death on April 27, 2011. David Wilkerson, who passionately loved God, died instantly in a car accident. Although I did not know him personally, his words touched me deeply.
This is what he wrote on his blog the day he died:
To those going through the valley and shadow of death, hear this word: Weeping will last through some dark, awful nights—and in that darkness you will soon hear the Father whisper, “I am with you. I cannot tell you why right now, but one day it will all make sense. You will see it was all part of my plan. It was no accident. It was no failure on your part. Hold fast. Let me embrace you in your hour of pain.”
Beloved, God has never failed to act but in goodness and love. When all means fail—his love prevails. Hold fast to your faith. Stand fast in his Word. There is no other hope in this world.”
