How do you handle fear? How do you respond when your future looks uncertain?
Well, there’s no better cure for fear than faith. Easier said than done, right? It’s like fighting fire with fire. Faith is risky, and sometimes dangerous, but when it’s based on the One who never fails … faith works!
I’ll confess to a few butterflies right now as we step into one of the most exciting seasons in the history of Life Without Limbs. As you will likely recall from my previous letters to you, we are embarking on a journey to reach 27 countries with the good news of Jesus Christ.
Although the itinerary for World Outreach is all mapped out, we do not know what awaits us. Traveling into foreign countries presents risk. Some governments, for instance, are not entirely friendly to the Gospel, and we will likely encounter resistance along the way. Additionally, even though World Outreach has been launched, we do not have all the financial resources to fulfill our mission.
In a sense, I feel a little like Abraham. Remember his story? God asked Abraham to sacrifice his son, Isaac, as a test of his faith. Father and son walked up the hill together into the mysterious unknown. Abraham built an altar, placed his son into position and pulled out a knife.
Just in the nick of time, an angel rescued both Abraham and Isaac from a tragic outcome. Not only did Abraham pass the test, but God also provided a ram for the sacrifice. He relieved Abraham from fear and provided him with the resources he needed!
At Life Without Limbs, we are praying daily for the success of World Outreach. We are trusting God for the outcome. We are stepping out in faith … believing He will provide our ram.
That’s where you come in. The financial resources will come through people like you who share our passion to tell others about Jesus.
As we venture into World Outreach, we are determined to push through our fear and choose faith instead. Will you join us? Will you help us tell people who have yet to find hope in Jesus? Thank you, in advance, for whatever God leads you to give. When you make a donation to Life Without Limbs, you become a direct answer to our prayer.
At this very moment, someone in a distant land is waiting on us to tell him or her about Jesus. These unsuspecting people have no idea that God will be using you to deliver the message through World Outreach. But someday, perhaps in heaven, they will thank you for stepping out beyond your fears and touching their hearts with the hope of God’s love.
In Him, Through Him, For Him,
“Without faith it is impossible to please God, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” ~ Hebrews 11:6 NKJV
