Fight to See
Ephesians 1:18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people
There are 20.9 million victims of human trafficking globally.
68% are trapped in forced labor.
26% are children.
55% are women and girls.
With our eyes on the news and the statistics and the headlines, the issue feels gargantuan, extreme, and impossible. In the face of the facts, it is easy to lose hope. We must fight to keep our eyes fixated on hope.
What if we begin to pray in faith that believers will raise money to meet God’s will for freedom? HOPE!
What if we believe that He whom the Son sets free is free indeed and then begin praying for the conviction of the Holy Spirit to arrest traffickers, expose forced labor rings, and bring a way of escape to those who are imprisoned. HOPE!
We are called to walk by faith, in spite of what we see. We are called to walk in faith for freedom, pray in faith for freedom, and work in faith for freedom.
Close your eyes and pray that the eyes of your heart may be filled with the light of the hope. When we see by faith this insurmountable issue will be placed in a proper perspective. With God all things are possible. Join your faith with believers all around the world to abolish slavery by fighting to see hope.
The hope that lives in us is the hope that will make a difference.
Take a few moments to pray for the names and stories behind these statistics. Add faith that God will do what seems impossible. Fight to see hope! Fight to be hope!
