Spirit Break Out
I am continued to be left in awe, almost speechless as I see the POWER of our living God move throughout the nation of India. The promise God had given was that a small town of 26,000 people would be living streams of water to reach a nation of nearly 1.3 billion for Jesus. I love how God uses the humble to shame the proud, the weak to shame the strong, small things to make a BIG difference, and ordinary people to do EXTRAORDINARY things.
Yesterday, our team had the privilege of heading the local church's Sunday service. Our pastors were able to reinforce the promise God has for his people; that there was a Promise Land for each of them to be conquered. But standing in the way of the land flowing with milk and honey, were giants- the thoughts of self-doubt and worth, disabilities, broken family backgrounds, etc. What God spoke was that in order to walk into our Promise land, we need the same Spirit God gave Joshua and Caleb: a Spirit of courage, boldness, and overcoming! That in order for each and every one of his people to walk into their purpose (their Promise Land), chains needed to be broken.
It was a humbling experience, to pray for our brothers and sisters. To pray for courage. To pray for boldness. To pray for an increase of faith and the power of the Holy Spirit. As we prayed and I looked around the room, I saw chains being broken and giants being slain. Freedom was being unleashed!
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the , “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." -Jeremiah 29:11
I believe in the promise and plan he made for our brothers and sisters, for this town, and his nation: That all would come to know and worship the one true God.
