My mind goes back to so many impossible events in history, where humanly speaking, there was no way that man could accomplish what God wanted. So, it is today. When we want the impossible to happen, we must be in deep prayer that God will make a way for His work to move forward.
In one of the Southeast Asian countries where New Foundations International has worked for years, we were hindered for a few years, but just gave 660 complete Bibles in their language last week. We also introduced God's Plan for His Church (Old Edition) in their language to 20 new church planters and will return in a couple of months for the follow-up. They are in process of translating God's Plan for His Disciples into two languages, and Lord willing, it will be ready when we return.
Though interpretation was not as good as usual while we were there, our Lord blessed His Word. The men have gained rich insights into God's Word. Let us pray that this training will lead to great expansion in this country and beyond. Let's also begin now to pray for the follow-up in January.
If we only listen to negative news that comes through many channels, we become prayerless, powerless and hopeless Christians. The great challenge for all is to rekindle in us God’s heart for the nations and understand that HE does the impossible. When this happens, our prayers will reflect that attitude. Paul left this heart for nations with his spiritual son Timothy; “God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ramson for all” (1 Timothy 2:3-5).
