I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you. I said, ‘You are my servant’; I have chosen you and have not rejected you. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41: 9-10 NIV
This past weekend our staff came together for a time of rest and team building as we begin to plan and ramp up for the summer and fall season here at GHI! It was sweet to meet again and spend time in the Word. We zoned in on the passage of Isaiah 41. The Scripture reads, “ I have chosen you and not rejected you, So DO NOT FEAR.”
A majority of our team spends a lot of the year traveling. It is easy to fall into the habits of self-reliance, fear, and worry over logistics and overall safety. But we heard God calling us to not be afraid. As He is working we need to find our strength and courage in Him!
This verse is also an excellent reminder that we are chosen! No matter how imperfect we are how we feel about ourselves, God has chosen us! So, let us love others in that space! As a staff we are praying that we would use our actions first to show love and then follow through with words! This verse states, “For I am with you.” What an encouragement!
Today we are praising God for:
- We have more trip participants who are experiencing empowerment through generosity of fellow believers and are now fully funded!
- 20 Suitcases of hygiene and medical supplies are headed to the people of India this week thanks to your monthly support! PRAISE GOD!
- More and more people are saying “Yes” to God’s call to love on brothers and sisters in India and the people of India here in the US through GHI!
Today we are praying for:
- Safe travels as teams and staff prepare to head to and from India.
- Favor over support raising for teams this summer and fall!
- Pray for villages in Manipur, the rainy season has not come. Pray for rain and God’s provision.
