For the last couple of weeks I’ve really been seeking God about going on a missions trip to Costa Rica in May. Now keep in mind that I got back from a trip to Ethiopia less than a month ago. I have such a heart for Africa, but never really Latin America. A few days ago I decided to soak and wait in God’s presence to here His voice. He completely broke me down. Mostly what I’ve been worrying about is finances. He basically told me that He’s going to show me His power and faithfulness….and if I would let Him, He will give me a heart for those places also. Yet, I still continued to wrestle with this. So today I finally gave in and I stopped making excuses. I don’t know how, but if He wants me to go, and I’m willing to trust Him, then it will be so.
Here are just some scriptures that stuck out to me yesterday.
1 Corinthians 4:20–For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power.
Colossians 1: 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.
Right now, all I have the ability to do is trust God.
