When I Can’t Rely on Myself
The Christian life is always a life of adventure. Read through the Gospels, the Book of Acts, the Epistles and then the entire Old Testament. You’ll see God’s people continually in peril.
Sometimes, God tells them to do what’s impossible—like instructing Gideon to reduce his forces before going to war against a far more formidable foe. Other times, God’s people find themselves in circumstances where they have no hope but for a miracle. The Egyptian army chasing the Israelite slaves to the shores of the Red Sea, for example.
God keeps putting his people in unreasonable situations. They keep ending up in circumstances where they have to trust God. Where they can’t rely on themselves.
They’re living the adventurous life.
