I (Louis) am back from my life-changing trip to India.
I was broken.
It was a fantastic trip.
Before I say anything else, I want to thank everyone who supported me in any way, whether through prayer or finances, thank you!
There is so much that God showed me while in India. I'm not going to even try to state all of it, but I will share one big thought. Do we have the heart of God? Over the course of my time in India, God challenged me to desire His heart. I do. I desire to see life the way He sees it. I long to hear people as He hears people. I want the heart of God.
The big question became, how do I attain it? God revealed that I have to make time for His presence. I have to be a man of prayer. In Matthew 26 we see Jesus wrestling with His father will. He asks God that if there is anyway, perhaps He could take the cup of death from Him. Later on in that same chapter, though, we find Jesus actually fighting for His death to occur, stating to Peter, "all these things must happen for the prophecies to be fulfilled." What? The Son of man was just asking God to take death from Him, and now He's fighting for it? Where did He attain the heart of God? Where did He become content with the will of God? It was when He was on His knees. It was when He was found in the presence of God.
It's the presence of God that is going to change this country. It is the bold spirit of faith in Christ followers, who know who they are in Christ, that are going to turn this country upside down for the sake of the gospel. I'm not sure why I had to go to India to see what urgency we should have for Christ in this country, but I don't think that really matters. We have to long for the heart of God. Not only do we have to long for the heart of God, but we must seek after it.
