Deuteronomy 30,31; 1 Corinthians 1
You have multiplied, O Lord my God, your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us; none can compare with you! I will proclaim and tell of them, yet they are more than can be told. ~Psalm 40:5
God truly is a multiplier...from the fundraising to get to India & Laos, to the right people needed for the mission, to all the technical logistics of running everything smoothly. He makes up everything we are lacking so that His perfect plan is lived out. There simply is no other explanation, so you cannot help but be humbled, grateful, and in awe of all who God is and all that He has done.
As your trip is coming to an end, it’s normal to feel overwhelmed with everything you have experienced: the people you have met, the things you have witnessed, or maybe just the presence of God. The normal reaction is to want to share those experiences and everything God did, but I pray that you just take time to reflect on how great God is. When you come back to Hawaii, and all the hectic everyday life begins, remember this feeling of gratitude for who He is and what he has done in you.
I love this quote: “Experiencing God as multiplier reminds us of His Power and strength. It lifts the lid off of what we think is possible and reminds us that with God anything can happen.”
Dear Jesus, thank you for continuing to be our multiplier and our source of everything. Thank you for these missionaries and their obedience to live out your calling in their lives. Please continue to protect them as they make their way back home, and provide rest for them. Let their fire burn bright within them so that they can be a light at home. We love you in Jesus’ name, Amene
