Keep Faith Alive
Being part of a solution is never easy.
I recall when I first opened the offices of ReachAcross here in Brisbane, and had no idea what I was doing; but in the back of my mind, I knew I had to start somewhere, and whatever I started would become the beginning of a future.
Life has a funny way of changing from under you, and there are moments when you look back and wonder how on earth you got through the toughest of times and still managed to keep on going through it all.
There’s a story in Scripture that tells the story of a man who was far from courageous, and lived in a land that was occupied by enemy raiders. However, he was hindered by his own self-worth, and described himself as “the least”. Yet God ended up choosing him as the leader of Israel.
“When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, “The Lord is with you, mighty warrior.”
- Judges 6:12
Perhaps you may have a “Gideon moment” in your own life when you think you are less than adequate; unable to handle all of life’s pressing demands, and self-described as weak and weary.
But the truth is, you are stronger than you know when you have God on your side.
