Wound-Licker or Warrior

Inspired by Children of the Day by Beth Moore Lifeway Publications

The gospel of God has the incomparable power to change lives destinies and destinations.  Paul and his traveling companions in 1 Thessalonians 2:3-4 were not driven by…failure, suffering, insults, people, lies wrong reason, tricks, people pleasing, influencing flattery selfishness, human praise.  They were driven by God, bravery, the Good News, God’s test, God’s trust, and God’s heart.

“Sometimes the enemy likes to fuel our feelings of failure.  Just when we finally mustier the courage to act or take a stand for the gospel, he prompts us to believe we blew it…and we start an ongoing cycle of inadequacy.”

“We can’t let Satan shut us in or he wins that battle.  He’s trying to make wound-licker’s out of warriors.  When God opens the door again, let’s stand back up, brush ourselves off, and step through it.”

“Here I stand, I cannot do otherwise.” ~Martin Luther
