With God’s help we will do mighty things.” (Psalms 60:12 NLT)
By A.D. 732, the Islamic Umayyad Caliphate had already conquered Spain and was now descending upon France in order to topple Western Europe. Led by Charles Martel, the French were able to choose the perfect battlefield: a hilltop surrounded for miles by dense woods. The fighting took place over a single day in October. By nightfall, the Umayyad army was completely broken, with thousands dead, and European Christianity remaining the prevalent religion, thanks to Martel’s courage.
While we might not be a Charles Martel, we can all do things of significance in Jesus’ name! Ginormous events are impressive, but it’s the daily workings that make the difference: a phone call, a moment of intercessory prayer, an act of forgiveness. Little is much when God is in it!
As you begin your weekend, look for simple ways to make someone’s life easier to live. A hand or gesture is mighty when it makes an eternal difference is someone’s life! Be that difference maker! You are loved today! (10/24/14)
