Last night I was reading through parts of Isaiah, and I was overwhelmed with the promises of God. He chose to use little Israel as a light for the nations, to draw people to Himself. I know that He wants to draw people from around the world today to know His truth and to reflect His glory. I want Cambodia and the Khmer people to be glory-reflectors in southeast Asia, and for the Gospel to burst forth in this area. Pray these passages with me for these groups of people around the world and celebrate what God is going to do.
