“I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’ Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth – everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.” Lead out those who have eyes but are blind, who have ears but are deaf. All the nations together and the peoples assemble.” – Isaiah 43:6-9. As we are on the downward slope of the Honduras trip, this verse really spoke to me in the circumstance my team and I are in now.
27 people were added in the book of life today. 27 people asked Jesus into their hearts, right here at our clinic in Limon. He says to bring his sons and daughters from far away places back to Him. Sons and daughters were brought to the precious Lord today. He declares for us to lead out those who have eyes but, are blind. Those who gave ears but are deaf. A lot of the people we’ve seen here in Honduras have ears and they have eyes but, they are still deaf and blind to the goodness of the Gospel. With God we have had the power tune their ears to hear and their eyes to see.
All the nations together and people assemble. Last night, here in Limon we sang “How great is our God.” Some of us singing in Spanish. Some of us singing in English. Some of us singing in Guriffina. ALL singing the same words. To the same God. Worshiping the ONLY king.
This week the devil has tempted and he has tried to hold our team back but, the Lord declares, “Give them up! Do not hold them back!”
The Lord is a strong and mighty tower. He sent us to rescue many here in Honduras. But, he’s not just calling me or the other 42 team members. He’s declaring this to all of His people. He is in the business of rescuing. He invites us all to join him…to lead. to witness. In Honduras, at the park, or in the car.
For everyone has been formed and made by The Potter’s hands. Stop at nothing to bring others to the Father.
