So, my message to the young guys on the block? DON'T QUIT!
To the Zac Pittman's, Josh Graves', Dusty and Tim Rush's, Eric Magnusson's and Jeff Jenkins', etc......DON'T QUIT. You are targeted by dark forces to get you to quit. You'll be tempted, due to repeated, repeated failure of others or yourself, to toss in the towel. You'll be tempted to believe because success didn't happen for several efforts in a row that you must have misunderstood your call......that you must be doing something wrong. WRONG!
You must have things go wrong. You must go wrong. Do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange thing were happening to you; but to the degree that you share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing; so that also at the revelation of His glory, you may rejoice with exultation....I Peter 4:12-13.
Everything which comes your way to want to make you bolt carries hidden teachings and blessings. None of it is for the trash. Be still. Listen for Him. Learn from Him. He's in the center of the mess giving you a test. Will you believe He is bigger than the problem? In every situation......the correct answer is, "YES."
