Have you heard the lyrics of that song that says, When the world is falling out from under me, I’ll be found by you.? That is a remarkable insight because the world is falling out from under a lot of people these days. People are really starting to feel the bite that’s coming as the cost of living rises, and lots of people recognise things are not so easy.

Mandy and Neil discuss some of the calls they’ve received during Visionathon that express the tremendous need out there. Some people are working out what’s important at this time and acknowledge the priority of being able to share in the lives of people around the nation.

Stephanie, who lives in Blacktown, NSW, shared how she was impacted and touched when she heard the right song at the right time on Vision Radio. She had lost her mum, and then her marriage fell apart, so she lost her husband. To top it off, she came home one day to find a For Sale sign on her home, so she would also lose her home. It was at this low point that God spoke to her through a song on the radio. It was about His greatness and ability to carry her through the dark times. It was the right song at the right time.

Life is getting very hard for people. People are anxious about the future, how they will survive financially, and the social and political changes coming at them faster than they can process. But we know a God who holds the future. We have a Messiah who has promised to hold us and carry us for the rest of our lives.

A Song Saves Two Lives

Mandy shared a time when she was programming music, and there was a particular song she found irritating, so she thought about dumping the song. Before she got to do that, she received a phone call from a lady who said she’d just been through a toxic divorce. In despair, she and her daughter decided they would commit suicide together. Then the song that Mandy was going to dump came on the radio. This lady said that song literally saved their lives. She and her daughter got connected with a church and moving forward; their lives were changed by Jesus. Mandy said she had learnt a valuable lesson. God can use anything to reach people. At this time, He used the right song at the right time to save two lives for the Kingdom.

‘A man has joy by the answer of his mouth, And a word spoken in due season, how good it is!’ Proverbs 15:23NKJV.
