There is nothing like a great challenges, they make life interesting and well worth living. Why so many people believe it takes a special person of faith to undertake such great challenges in their life is beyond me. People who have great faith tend to be more of a risk taker and embrace life’s challenges quite simply.
Abram left everything he knew when he responded to God’s challenge to move to a new place, he didn’t hesitate. Moses, though initially reluctant, stood before Pharaoh and demanded the release of the Israelites. What do we know about these two men? I know they were common people, and God presented them with a challenge and they responded in faith.
I have learned from my own experiences that great things in life just don’t happen without a challenge. Also, I have learned that these challenges are presented to everyday people. So I encourage all, the next time you are faced with a challenge look to the Lord to empower you to step out boldly in obedience to him.
Revelation for all. 2 Samuel 22:30 says; In your strength I can crush an army; with my God I can scale any wall. How awesome is this? This is the confident assurance that he has given us that we may do great and mighty things.
