A pastor in a Christian establishment resigned from his post. Subsequently had had to experience considerable hardships.
He had to endure hunger, fasting, poverty, tears, ridicule and curses.
Nevertheless, he began the Lord’s ministry in the very same town.
This could not be tolerated by the Christian organisation which had previously employed him. Some of them, therefore, assembled together and started fasting and praying to God with great zeal that his ministry should not be blessed!
But will our Lord and Saviour heed a prayer offered with the wrong intention?
Within a few days, those who had been praying against the pastor were attacked by a virulent dysentery. Some of them even died!
On the other hand that lonely pastor’s work flourished and spread.
May our Lord and Saviour grant that we ourselves do not harbour such iniquity in our hearts!
With many peaceful blessings
