Have you ever had to learn the same lesson more than once? Sometimes we fail to remember God’s blessings and provision from the past, and so new trials can cause us to doubt His faithfulness and provision. Our human tendency is to complain when we are in desperate need, but let’s learn instead that those very times are blessings in disguise. It’s in those moments that God has our full attention, because the struggles He has allowed to come our way cause us to run to Him!
Doing Whatever it Takes
The Bible tells a story of four men who were so determined to get a crippled man to Jesus, that they ripped the roof off a house to get him there! They were willing to do whatever it took. As followers of Christ, are we truly willing to do whatever it takes to get people to Jesus, despite the obstacles, despite the inconvenience, despite the cost? We never will be until we fully understand how much is at stake.
