…Time would fail me to tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson… who through faith conquered kingdoms, enforced justice, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the power of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, were made strong out of weakness, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight.
There are countless people from the Bible who displayed great faith and commitment to the Lord. They were from all different walks of life, most of them ordinary people just like you and me.
But they all had one thing in common: their trust in and commitment to the Lord.
It doesn’t matter what kind of car you drive or where you live. God isn’t limited by how much you do or don’t have. He wants to use you right where you are!
Many believers in Christ claim to have faith in Him, but they don’t follow through in their actions. They see obstacles or face trials and take off running in the other direction!
But I want to challenge you today, if you are a follower of Christ, to respond by faith to what the Lord is calling you to do. To live the life He is calling you to live through His Word… by faith!
AS YOU REMAIN UNMOVED IN YOUR TRUST AND COMMITMENT TO GOD,
HE’LL DO SOMETHING EXTRAORDINARY WITH YOUR LIFE.
