DAVID JEREMIAH’S TURNING POINT 25 APRIL 2023
Petr Jasek, a worker with Voice of the Martyrs, was arrested in Sudan and imprisoned for 445 days, sometimes being housed with ISIS warriors. Other times he was in solitary confinement or crammed into overcrowded cells with convicts. For the first five months he was without his Bible, but he sustained himself on his Bible memory verses and hymns.
Occasionally he was able to exchange mail with his family, and in one letter home he wrote, “The longer I’m in prison, the greater my joy grows, and from Jesus’s nail-pierced hand, I am experiencing new touches. All of this we can explain only by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ who has loved us. I am living, knowing, and feeling the tremendous protection and intervention from God’s hands, especially when there is danger.”
Whenever you are walking through a difficult situation, remember the Lord is giving you new touches with His nail-pierced hand. He will never leave you, especially when there is danger; He is with you through fire and flood. He is your refuge and very present help.
God is giving me strength in my weakness… and He will be the One who finishes this fight instead of me.
 Petr Jasek, Imprisoned With ISIS (Washington, D.C.: Salem Books, 2020), 155, 164.
