His Way

July 3rd, 2010


As a church planter, Eric experienced his share of disappointments and frustrations. He hasn’t always dealt with them gracefully.

During one of those particularly difficult stretches, he questioned why it seemed God wasn’t holding up His end of the bargain. After all, he was doing everything he thought God called him to do. Shouldn’t things be a little easier when we’re following what we believe God’s called us to do?

It was then that Eric realized something he never really fully considered before. As he reflected on the Bible, I came to see that although its pages are full of those who gave every part of their lives to follow God’s call, most of them never lived easy lives. In fact, most of the heroes and heroines of Scripture ended up suffering a great deal.

God never promised the way would be easy, but He did promise something even greater: “Be strong and courageous . . . for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you or forsake you.”
