God set forth an impossible undertaking when He challenged
my capabilities to be the best at something I never imagined possible. But then
it occurred to me – how many others seem to be on a quest for Jesus? They do
not realize the disillusionment of the deserts.
I often wonder how some people got started in life. What
made them so great in their lifetime? For example, Nicodemus in the Book of
John became a legend in the Jewish community as a ruler and teacher of Israel.
Then there was an Indian lawyer called Ghandi, and a lady named Mother Teresa. Closer
to home was a little boy called Billy, who took his Bible to school every day. He
was such an avid reader, and he never gave up his desire to serve the Lord.
But many others are true to their heart, and they never waver
from God’s ministry. In my personal life, it’s a profound feeling of a great
success to serve the Almighty. It comes with abounding rewards and grace. Now I
should ask, where is the Holy Spirit in your life?
It could be too easy to stop my ministry of writing. I’d
load the kayaks in the back of my pickup truck and head to the lake. Not a bad
idea, but God puts His trust in me to bring others to His kingdom. My reward
for faithfulness? I am so blessed in every waking moment. I’m sure my words may
confuse you, but my closest friends and family know my priority is to serve the
Too many believers “toe the line” in their commitment to
serve our Lord. They pray for answers but give up when there’s no immediate response.
Sometimes we look for answers within this world only to discover God is already
working on our healing.
If you want to see faith at work, then don’t look at a
three-piece suit parading up on a stage, shaking a Bible at our Almighty.
That’s blasphemy – no! Let’s examine the heartbreaking scenes of the Bahamas. A
mother stood in a bathroom with her three children praying to God for help in
the disastrous times of Dorian. Do you think God didn’t hear her heart? (See
the video below) Prayer is the only ammunition to combat evil.
With the mighty force of just one young mother, who guarded
her three children in a bathroom, she brought together the strength of nations,
ready to oblige her mission. What a world we could live in if we understood the
destitution of our mental thoughts! Hopefully, many received the message for it
was a great example of God working through His people.
God challenges us to be successful in His glory if we stay
in prayer and never give up hope. Do not render your patience. As we kayak in
God’s calm waters, do not evade the fact the calm waters are His too. He wants everyone
to be successful and filled with hope. We shall armor ourselves in the covenant
of faith for God ordained it to be ours.
God bless you, my friends, and all the survivors of Hurricane Dorian.
