    Is it true that God continues to use the deeds of the wicked to fulfill His plan and purpose as He did in the book of Daniel?

    Nick. Great question. As a surviving adult of child trafficking I can answer from my own personal experience. Yes! I have been here for about a week . I hoped to share my experiences about how my love for God is unique to my own life. I have witnessed and survived the most unGodly cruelties of mankind upon children that continues at this very moment. So yes if I had not been enslaved I would not have my own understanding of God's involvement in our lives on a personal basis. But i have been told that i am not saved because i am not a follower of Christian traditions. But I will never forget and I will never be moved from my love of God. The terrifying and wonderful love and fear .

    Connie, you would certainly have a vibrant, up-to-date testimony of God's intervention in your marred life & his Gift of New Life to you, through His Son. And even God using what seemed as a vile & abhorrent mistreatment by others, turned out to your favour & salvation. You have much to praise God for. And true, following Christian traditions won't save you or anyone else, but obedience to what the Bible teaches for our salvation & hope of eternity, will. For its only in God's Word that we can find the Words of Life & not from the words of men or even from our own thoughts. May God help you & bless you as you look to Him & learn from Him.

    Chris thank you for understanding my personal testimony of how God is very much involved in people's life on a personal level. I hoped to help here but my views are very misunderstood here. I don't think the world is ready for my testimony. I have not found much kindness here on the subject of my love for God.

    I know that however much i love God and Jesus it really isnt enough ,my heart would literally burst i think if i loved Them as much as i should ,my love is like one drop of water in the ocean ,my heart is cold and hard and i am totally reliant on Gods mercy which He shows me in a million different ways every day . I am literally lost without Him .

    Sacha that is such a wonderful testimony!.

    That kind of fellowship is exactly what I believe I was searching for here.

    When i read the scriptures and see how it tells of how the people think and act I find myself being the one who needs corrected.

    I have never seen a scripture that I could say described how right i am thinking nor how wrong anyone else is thinking.

    I am not ashamed to admit that I don't know how God , or Jesus is working with other people.

    i see in my eyes, the one drop of love you described , is bigger than any ocean i have seen.

    Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. It melted my own cold heart a bit..

    Why not, he's the same God, right? I suspect your real question is,"how" can he do that. One attribute of God is omnipotence. Look it up and marvel.
