Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways, submit to Him and He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
We need to trust but also to submit to Him so that we can be the light to the world that He desires us to be. We often take hold of the trust part of that proverb but we also need to submit so that His light can shine brighter through us.
Psalm 27:1 The Lord is my light and my salvation - whom shall I fear or dread? The Lord is the refuge and stronghold of my life - of whom shall I be afraid?
13-14 [What would have become of me] had I not believed that I would see the Lord's goodness in the land of the living! Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes wait for and hope for and expect the Lord.
Let this encourage everyone who is praying for their town or village. For whatever you are each praying into; however you are serving your part of the world, the Lord is with you. Believe that you will see breakthrough even if there is no evidence yet. Trust that you will see the Lord's goodness. Keep going, keep seeking the Lord's heart and keep praying into that which He shows you and there will be a dividend. Be encouraged and take heart, for the Lord hears our prayers and not one will be forgotten.
Isaiah 55:11 So is my word that goes out from my mouth: it will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
