Facing an Unexpected Challenge
Not every challenge is the same. Some are expected; others come out of the blue bringing genuine questions concerning direction, terrorizing with fear, and raising doubts about the future. What will happen? How bad will it become? Will we survive? What will we lose? Can we recover?
Our country is facing one of those moments. As a result, our world is being turned upside down. Fortunately, we are not the first Christians to face such challenges. The Scripture is replete with men and women of faith who were thrust into great challenges and came through them in absolute victory. So can we!
Now is a time to analyze what they did and use their pattern as ours. If we will, we will also share their victory and success.
