God is still keeping North Korea on my heart and mind… I’ve been praying through several things, but particularly that the Lord would give a dream to Kim Jong-Un that would challenge him and open his eyes to the wrong he is doing as a leader of his nation – that he would actually see the suffering of the people. I’ve been praying that he would have this dream every night until he does something about it!
Every time I think about the people of North Korea, I have such an urgency in my heart to see an end to this regime. I’m crying out for rescue for my brothers and sisters from oppression. I want it to end now! As I prayed the other day, though, I felt God say he was just giving Kim Jong-Un a little longer to turn to him. He is a merciful God, who desires that none should perish – not even a dictator. We think in terms of physical perishing, but God sees the eternal. So, just a little longer… but only a little longer!
The other day as I prayed, I had a picture in my mind of two great bowls full of a glowing oil like substance. Both bowls were brimming to overflowing. Slowly the two bowls tipped and the liquid poured out over North Korea, mixing together as it flowed down. I felt God say that these bowls contained judgement and mercy that was ready to be poured out on North Korea. As I began to pray through the picture, I felt a further clarification that the bowls are an expression of justice and grace, filled in response to the prayers of His people all over the world. The two outpourings are intermingled for the transformation of the nation and for His glory!
Lord, let your Justice be known in North Korea, bringing an end to evil, and may your Grace flow freely in that land, healing all wounds.
