The Wealth of the Wicked

The sinner's wealth is stored up for the righteous.
Proverbs 13:22b

I often quote Corrie ten Boom, one of my heroes of the faith! I read that she began to share a daily devotional message on TransWorld Radio in the 1950's, not many years after she was released from Ravensbruck concentration camp for helping the Jews in Holland.

What is so interesting is that the radio tower that was broadcasting forgiveness and peace through Jesus Christ, was built and paid for by Adolph Hitler. He spared no expense, intending to spread his message of hatred throughout Europe with the biggest and best radio transmitter of the day. He died before he ever got to use it.

There was Corrie, whom the Lord had given grace to forgive her captors and those who murdered her friends and family, spreading God's love to the German people and all of Europe on Hitler's tower!

It never ceases to amaze me that God answers our prayers in bigger better ways than we could have even known or imagined!!

It is amazing that something that was built to spread hate ended up spreading God's word instead. God does work in mysterious ways. Hope you are having a nice Sunday.

Corrie was a remarkable Christian women. I really enjoyed the book she wrote and the one the caretaker of her wrote.
