I have been reading a book by David Garrison (A Wind in the House of Islam) and become fascinated with “movements of God” that most of us never hear about. Most of these movements are effective because they happen apart from any Western influence or presence. One interview in a country I will leave unnamed gave this testimony:
“When Western colonizers withdrew from the region, gospel witness was free to be accepted or rejected on its own merits rather than for any perceived advantage that might be accrued by association with a foreign occupier.” (Page 182).
By extension, this same phenomenon is happening today when the gospel is placed in the hands of even one indigenous person who has the Holy Spirit. There is no limit to what movements God will start and spread as we keep to the principles He has shown us at the beginning. If you want your heart to be ignited with joy at what God is doing in our day, this book is a must read. Let’s plant the seed in one fertile heart and then get out of the way.
