Isaiah 32:17, NIV
The fruit of righteousness will be peace; the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence forever.

Trust in the Lord develops righteousness, which means quietness and confidence in the Lord. Those who have always put their faith in gods that are not real and in fallen spirits that deceive and harm them live in fear and unrighteousness. But the One True God, the One who created the heavens, offers righteousness, peace and confidence. Which would you prefer? Which do you think the unreached nations would prefer if given a choice?

Pray that this year many from unreached nations will put their trust in the One Who takes away our fears and gives us quietness and confidence.—DD

While in college, Mobin was training to become a commissioned officer in the Indian army. At that time he met a Christian officer. One night the Christian shared the gospel with Mobin. But Mobin, a Muslim, was not at all convinced about the gospel. He was shocked at the words which his friend concluded his witness to him: “If you die, you will go to hell. If I die, I will go to heaven because I believe in Jesus.” In the morning, Mobin went back and asked the Christian to repeat once again what he had shared. Thinking that the witness of someone else might be more persuasive, the officer went to get another Christian friend to speak with his friend. But he refused to come. “Listen, you’re just wasting your time,” he said. “Don’t you know? Mobin is a Muslim. He’ll never become a Christian.” But the officer decided to give Mobin a New Testament. At that time Mobin did not know that the New Testament was a part of the Bible or he would never have accepted it. He came to Romans 5:8, KJV, which said, “But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” The words struck deep, and he gave his heart to Christ in 1968.
