When I was 12 years old, I took my first mission trip with my church. My youth group was going overseas to do some assemblies at schools to tell children about Jesus. Honestly, I was terrified. I felt a stirring in my heart that God was calling me to go, but I was scared.
I didn’t have the money to go and I knew my parents didn’t have any extra money to help me go either. If I was going, I had to do all my fundraising myself. Raising that much money felt pretty intimidating.
Even though I was afraid, I signed up for the trip. Then, I began raising money. God helped me each step of the way and I was able to raise all the funds I needed to go on the trip.
Isn’t it interesting, how God will often call us to do things that are so much bigger than we can accomplish by ourselves?

That’s where faith comes in. When we face something that is bigger than we can handle or do on our own, it takes faith to believe that God is going to come through for us. God often will often stir us to do something much bigger than what we can do on our own.
Today’s Truth: Faith feels frightening.
But in those moments where we are not enough, faith is what will carry us on.
Now faith brings our hopes into reality and becomes the foundation needed to acquire the things we long for. It is all the evidence required to prove what is still unseen. – Hebrews 11:1 (TPT)
When God calls you to do something, it will usually be bigger than just what you can do by yourself. God wants to provide and help you do the things He has called you to do, but it takes faith to believe that. Will you have great faith and do what God is calling you to do?
Today’s Challenge: God is looking for people who will say yes in faith!
