In this critical time in history, when the very fabric of society is being ripped apart by social unrest, racial hatred, political fear, disease, economic crises, and moral bankruptcy—we long for peace, love, goodness, and security—but who can we really trust to deliver us? Will it be a U.S. President, a charismatic religious leader, or a wealthy tycoon? Is the solution resounding in the loudest and most pervasive talking heads screaming at us from television and social media?

Throughout history, God has proven that He can provide a way through calamity through the most unlikely people.

For example, Moses was a foundling, David was a shepherd, Rahab was a prostitute, Daniel was a refugee slave, Gideon was a farmer and—Jesus was a carpenter. Even in modern history, George Washington, the first U.S. President, was a farmer with little classical education and very little military training. If these unlikely prospects answered the call; then, we shouldn’t allow our racial or geographical identity, lack of pedigree or education, poverty, or any other perceived deficiency–to prevent us from having the same courageous spirit. GOD doesn’t need ANY man-made advantages to do what He does.

The Bible teaches us we can live as victors—when GOD is within us: “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” (1 John 4:4‬) There is nothing we lack which God does not already possess, and He WILL provide for us so we may accomplish HIS purpose. When we begin to LIVE like His power is REAL, these words become intertwined deeply into our soul: “God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7‬) In other words, when we posses a strong sense of God’s presence—we are never crazy with fear.

God’s presence allows us to shed our perceived inadequacies and live courageously.‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬ When we are filled with God’s presence, we are outrageously courageous! We can trust Him to deliver us and give us incredible victories.
