# A21

The legacy of A21 : Freedom

27 million human slaves on the Planet .

Dozens of traffickers put in jail .

Hundreds of girls rescued .

The largest anti human trafficking organisation in the world , A21 , was founded by Christine and Nick Caine  ; amidst all evidence from ” experts ” strongly dissuading them to start it , saying it would be “IMPOSSIBLE ” to found it in a place like Thessaloniki , Greece .

Someone knew better .

Chris responded with a resounding , ” what is impossible with man is possible with God ” and that they were ” well able ” to do it .

Faith .

Obedience .

To the still small voice on the inside of you that will often ask of you to do things when all evidence seems to the contrary .

That is the power of Hope .

Today A21 is actively engaged in rescuing and rehabilitating girls from all parts of the world , has defied human logic from the get go and set a trailblazing example of not only humanism , but faith that gives rise to it and sustains the courage to follow through .

27 million slaves .

Something I’ve come to learn from Chris ,

” Numbers can be dehumanising and desensitising ”

27 million slaves didn’t even strike a chord with my compassion fatigued , numb brain .

She went on .

Put a face and a name to each number .

The story changes .

And only one thought I’m left with tonight :

” God’s Daughters are NOT for sale ”

Amen .

💫

V-Day Revelation

I pray we realise that whatever we are a part of ; family , company , charitable organisations, relationships, marriage and the list is seemingly endless ;

that we are rooted , grounded and built up enough in ” who we are in God ” , deriving our Identity as Sons and Daughters of The King , knowing that our “do” is not our “who”

so that ,

whatever it is that we are a part of ?

Has value because of us .

We don’t have value because of ” it ” .

Whatever that ” it” maybe .

I pray we are humble yet confident enough to walk into that business meeting , that boardroom , that studio , that classroom ,that clinic,  that whatever it is that forms a part of your world ,

as Sons or Daughters of The King ,

Fully aware of our Spiritual Identity and Inheritance in Him.

As Children of Light ?

We don’t have value because of things .

Things have value because of US !

Hallelujah !

👑

God Promise or The Promise of God 

We have all been there .

As naughty , seemingly innocent kids !

Wicked and adorably mischievous , but when caught red handed , we would inevitably scream , ” I won’t do that again ”

The sceptic on the other front , suspicious to the core , would counter , ” are you sure ? ”

Pat came the reply.

” God Promise ”

And repeat . 

That was one phase , one season of our lives  ,  usually the most nostalgic of all times : our childhood.

But did you notice how God’s sense of humour knows no bounds ? 

And as we grew older , seemingly more mature , I guess , somewhere along the path , we learnt that if we had made broken promises out of a childish , guilt free , blameless heart , 

He didn’t .

True to His Word , we have grown together as a community , into the Sons and Daughters of The King , a doting Father whose Promise is anything but broken .

Pristine and Passionate ;

His Promise stands like rock .

Irrefutable , Unyielding , Guaranteed and Immutable .

His Promise Stands .

I pray we take to heart today that we will together choose to trust what He has Promised us :

Freedom

Healing

Guidance

Protection

Deliverance

Constant companionship

Restoration

Resurrection

Life More Abundant

( and that’s a rather nanoscopic view ) !

But because we have his seal of approval , we can boldly go in and ” possess ” the Promise of God , in its entirety.

Talking of His Personal Promise on our respective lives ?

That dream , that car , that house , that studio , that relationship , that book, that World tour , that song album , that art gallery , that venture , that prophecy ?

In His Name , we have it as our Inheritance, but it is upto us to put our faith and trust in The Only One who neither fails nor forsakes us , correspond with Him , believe The Truth that IS His Word , co – partner with Him ,

And Possess The Promise .

By Grace , through Faith .

We do our part , and He will do His .

As Christine Caine puts it , ” He is responsible for the consequences of our obedience to Him ” .

And He is .

” He who Promised IS Faithful ” , Scripture asserts . 

That’s His Promise .

Not a care free , void , emergency exit of a promise we yelped in our juvenile years ,

that’s a   ” God Promise ” .

But a Promise of God ?

Unimpeachable

Unassailable

Unchallengeable

Unquestionable . 

A Promise we can stand on .

Now THAT’S a God Promise or a Promise of God .

It doesn’t matter anymore .

Does it ?
