Faith is all about risk and adventure, whether it’s moving to a foreign land, or the simple act of loving others who are around us. The truth is those who make a difference in this world, are always risk takers. And we as the church, were never meant to be a timid club huddled together for safety, but a pilgrim family in progress, chasing after the wild Lionheart of God.
– Rend Collection
I have learned to accept it, even ask for it, this ‘more than I can handle.’ Because in these times, God shows Himself victorious. He reminds me that all of this life requires more of Him and less of me. God does give us more than we can handle. Not maliciously, but intentionally, in love, that His glory may be displayed, that we may have no doubt of who is in control, that people may see His grace and faithfulness shining through our lives.
Faith does not operate in the realm of the possible.
There is no glory for God in that
which is humanly possible.
Faith begins where man’s power ends.
– George Mueller
Because we are free
our obedience to God is difficult:
it can be achieved only after contest and struggle,
and just this makes the reward of obedience
even more to be sought after.
– Irenaeus (Haer. IV.37.6–7).
