‘For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.’ Hebrews 4:12 (NIV)
A lifestyle of drink and drugs, along with a number of prison sentences, led to Matt reaching rock bottom. He couldn’t see a reason to keep going. But then Matt began reading the UCB Word For Today in his prison cell, and started to meet each week with a man called Ken, who helped him to understand what he was reading. God never let go of Matt, and now his life has been completely transformed.
‘That one moment changed me. And I knew God was real then, I knew God was going to help me, and I could lean on Him and He’d support me through anything.’’
Watch the below videos to hear how God uses people’s stories for his purpose:
‘I just knew, when I repeated that line of the Lord’s Prayer to myself, that I could not have any integrity as a Christian ever again if I did not forgive the people who had done this to Alan.’
‘This young lady had taken 60 tablets so time was of the essence…she was in the middle of the bombing…frightened to go out, frightened to go to church...I said, “Well God’s got a purpose for your life and you need to be alive to see it though.”’
‘He’s restoring everything that was taken from me and everything that was broken. God’s brought it all back together, and given me more now than I ever had before.’
“I felt worthless and no good at being a mum…At times when I feel lonely and without purpose I always have the UCB Word For Today to comfort me. I know that every day God’s words will guide and give me the strength I need to fulfil His plans for my life.”
