Growing Through Challenges, Part 4: Pray And Take The Next Step

Who’s doing the work, me or God?

This is one of the inner struggles we face when trying to overcome a challenge. Do I pray and wait for God to do something to get me through this or do I have to do all the work myself and God is just watching?

The answer is that it is a partnership. We are supposed to pray for help but then we have to act or take the next step, trusting that the Lord will work on our behalf to move us through the challenge. Or as the Russian proverb says: Pray to God, but row for shore.

We will see this truth played out in the final part of the story of Gideon. Gideon sees the odds are way against him, but he also has been told very clearly that the Lord will be with him. He just has to have enough trust to take the next step.

Are you ready to take the next step?

We hope to see you Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
