Hudson Taylor: Helpless dependence

You, LORD, are all I have, and you give me all I need; my future is in your hands. Psalm 16:5

“God wants you to have something far better than riches and gold, and that is helpless dependence upon Him.”

Hudson Taylor (1832-1905) is widely attributed with this quote.

It’s been an indescribably good week in Panama. The training to multiply generous stewards and empower them to follow standards has unleashed heaven among these influencers from across Latin America.

Pause to pray with me for these 36 workers from 14 countries: Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, and USA.

Soon, they go forth equipped and commissioned to entrust their future in God’s hands with helpless dependence. We armed them with the word of God and taught them how to train others and replicate trainings.

We gave them not what the world thinks they need but what God knows they need. I can’t wait to hear the stories that come from this time together.

For example, Hugo Matos of Dominican Republic plans to replicate the Stations of Generosity training to all 32 provinces in Dominican Republic in the next 12 months. That’s just one example.

Thanks for your prayers. Please pray for a great last two days. Thanks.
