Kevin Hart is an actor and comedian. Recently, he opened up about his faith. All this was after a devastating car crash.
The actor survived a car crash in September. For that reason, he is praising God for his sovereignty, and for saving his life.
In a video shared on Instagram, the actor spoke out for the first time since the crash on September 1.
“Basically, what you realize is that you’re not in control. No matter how much you think you’re in control, you’re not in control. At the end of the day, it can all be over, man.” The comedian said.
“You know when God talks, you gotta listen,” Hart exclaims. “I swear, life is funny. Because some of the craziest things that happen to you end up being the things that you needed most. And in this case, I honestly feel like God basically told me to sit down.”
“When you’re moving too fast, and you’re doing too much, sometimes you can’t see the things that you’re meant to see. After my accident, I see things differently,” he added.
The accident left Hart with severe back injuries, but that didn´t stop him from making a video expressing his new way of thinking.
“I see life from a whole new perspective. My appreciation for life is through the roof.” He said.
In the video, you can see Heart with his three children spending time with him in the hospital and physical therapy.
He thanked his family, his friends, his fans, and God for saving his life.
“I’m thankful for simply still being here, on the road to being a bigger and better version of me. I’m looking forward to an amazing 2020,” Hart said.
Moved by Hart’s video, the head pastor of Passion City DC, Ben Stuart took to Instagram to share some words.
“Moved this morning listening to @kevinhart4real on his Instagram and Kanye on @latelateshow praising God,” Stuart wrote.
“Kevin Hart honoring God, not just for allowing him to live through his accident, but for giving him perspective through the pain,” he added.
“I love it. In a day so filled with pain and confusion and anxiety, I love watching people find joy and hope and purpose in communing with a God who loves us,” Pastor Ben added.
Later on, he encouraged people to pray for the two men for anybody in the world who senses God calling them to Himself affirming, among others things, that “Jesus came to sinners like you and me. And that is an encouraging thought“.
