Sometimes it seems as though people have lost hope for God doing anything great in the nations of Europe. Sometimes it seems as though people are disappointed in the state of what is described as “post Christian” nations. When we look at these nations, our hearts come alive. We believe God has a plan for those countries. We believe that He is going to do something great. We have not given up or settled for anything less. There is already a stirring happening, a stirring of a move of God, and we believe He is going to pour out His spirit.
He has a plan that is unfolding in these nations and hope is alive, because Jesus is alive. We want people to go back to their cities and countries with their hearts alive and surging with hope for what God is going to do. Hope is the birthplace for faith in our lives. There is no doubt in my mind that God wants to put hope in our hearts where faith will spring out of. God is on the move in Europe. Great things are going to happen. Join us as we declare this over the nations of Europe and the rest of the world.
