Today’s Word of Encouragement | Evangelist Byron Foxx

The
current trial in our country has caused some to feel overwhelmed. Others seem
to somewhat relish these challenging days. What causes the difference in
people’s responses to periods of crisis? The answer is FAITH IN GOD! Faith
always wins!

When
someone receives Christ as Savior, they are actually enrolling in an army!
God’s army is always fighting, working, and marching forward! 

God’s
people are described as pilgrims in Hebrews 11. People of faith are described
in the Bible as competitors. We continually run the “race that is set
before us.” We are always “pressing toward the mark!”

So
why does God place challenges before us? Why does God allow challenges to come
to a country? Why does the Lord assign to our feeble hands’ these great
assignments?

RISE TO THE CHALLENGE

Friends,
there is a reason! God in His mighty wisdom has a purpose in what we are
assigned to do! God has a goal for us, He has a program for us, he has a
challenge for us! And it is glorious to set about the task of doing God’s work!

If people of faith are to be strong, and healthy, and gaining victories, we must rise to every challenge that is set before us! GOD HAS DESIGNED HIS PEOPLE TO RISE TO CHALLENGES!

-Noah
was faced with an upcoming world catastrophe. God warned him about the flood,
and in faith, Noah rose to the challenge of building an ocean liner sized
vessel!

-David heard Goliath mocking God and volunteered to fight the giant! Goliath promised to feed David to the fowls, but David fought in the name of God, and had a tremendous victory that day!

-The
three Hebrew children refused to disobey God and bow down to worship an idol.
The wicked king had them thrown into a fiery furnace, but the Lord delivered
them! Those three Hebrew boys had fireproof faith!  

So,
in our present national crisis, what should God’s people be doing?

-Stay
focused on the goal! Aim to please God in all we say and do.

-Keep
active! God’s people are not a lazy group!

-Point
folks to Christ! World evangelism is the greatest challenge ever given!

COVID-19 Restrictions: When Government Goes Too Far

Dear Pastor friends,

We trust all of you had a wonderful Resurrection Sunday in these different times we’re experiencing. Over the course of the last week it’s likely that you’ve heard about some of the government overreach and attacks on religious liberty that have occurred in several states. Whether the affront was due to an overzealous local law enforcement official or a progressive governor, we are certain that your First Amendment rights have NOT been removed! We want to provide you with a list of Christian legal teams who can help you navigate these situations if they occur in your community or state.

Here are some examples of these incidents that we’ve uncovered for you to read:
