Justice




I intended to have something for Testimony Tuesday much earlier today. I'd started to write but it just wasn’t flowing so I held off. Later on I saw an article that was posted on As Our Own’s Facebook page and I knew immediately that it needed to be included here today.
The testimony? A police bust on a trafficking attempt! A man was deported from the US and, based on passport charges, was arrested in New Delhi last Friday. It led to finding out about these trafficking agents and then, this huge breakthrough.
What an enormous reason to give God glory!...

Many of the testimonies posted on Tuesdays so far have been personal, pertaining to myself or someone close to me. I’m sure there will be many more like that however; I want to share testimonies on a global scale as well. It's so important that we see what God is doing throughout our world (and give Him glory!). In light of what I often write here regarding human trafficking, I thought this arrest was an awesome update to make you all aware of so we can give God praise. Most often, the news we hear about slavery is negative. We see the overwhelming statistics and read the horrific stories and know that it will take a miracle for any positive change to take place. But, because we serve a miracle-working God, we can believe for the impossible. And, in this case, what seemed to be impossible took place.

For all of you who are praying for the freedom and redemption of the enslaved, be encouraged by this news! Who knows how many people in this area had been targeted to be trafficked but are now free because of this arrest. Let faith arise to continue believing God for many more reports like this one.

O Lord, you hear the desire of the afflicted; you will strengthen their heart; you will incline your ear to do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed, so that man who is of the earth may strike terror no more. - Psalm 10:17-18
