God Can Do It!

Yesterday I learned Steve McQueen had become a Christian later in his life. This star who excited many hearts a few decades ago died from cancer with Billy Graham’s Bible clutched in his hands. Steve’s childhood was tragic; his mother was a raging alcoholic, and he grew up with 'fathers' abuse rather than love (except for a heavenly Father he didn’t know back then, but who watched over him), yet he became a famous movie icon! 





From early on, motorcycles and fast cars delighted his heart! He had such a spirit in him, and You saw it, Lord, and grew it to fill his life. He accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior. At his death, the "King of Kool" said his one regret was that he could not share with others what a tremendous grace it was to have Jesus in his life.






God brought Steve through all the abuse he suffered. The enemy preys on children, but we need to be determined to do all we can to protect our kids and grandkids. It is God who looks over them, and so I call upon His protection by declaring a prayer quote from Bro Hagin: a confession of faith: 

My children, my grandchildren are growing up in the nurture and instruction and the protection in the care of the Most High. Everyone of them will live free. Everyone will serve God. Everyone will be faithful in the things of God. Our children are faithful to God. They’ve been raised up and they shall fulfill what they’ve been called to fulfill. 



Steve McQueen was abused as a child, but he was “saved” by a kindly uncle who loved him. Love is so powerful! Steve returned to his uncle's farm several times as a child. When his mother came to claim him after each remarriage, he was in and out of trouble until he decided to reform. He became a marine and learned discipline managing to successfully overcome at least some of his rebellious traits of the time. 




I cannot imagine deliberately abusing a child. How someone can intentionally cause hurt to any age kid is beyond my understanding. The cruelty is so demonic, and the affects of childhood abuse can be devastating. It travels in victim's souls all through their lives. Usually the pain and hurt is buried deep, and it seeps out at different times. At some point, if it is not healed, it will erupt causing drastic changes in behavior; it can promote addictions to drugs, alcohol or dangerous hobbies. Anger comes from hurt, and that old pain will boil out as anger; but God’s grace can heal it.


Remember that smile and charm of the irresistible man of action? A good looking man was Steve McQueen. Later in his life, Jesus was able to remove the negative effects of his challenging youth, replacing fear and anger with His love. Do you live with the effects of abuse? Jesus can heal you too!
