Friends, there is the power to leave a lucrative career. There’s the power to say farewell to comfort and security. There is the power to agonize with a need, to struggle with a cause, to work day in and day out without recognition. There’s the power to keep on, and keep on, and keep on, in sickness and obscurity while back home your friends have bought their nice houses and take their fancy vacations. There’s the power to leave that all behind, to surrender to the call, to follow hard after the vision, to make the sacrifice. There’s the power to be a missionary and there’s the power to stay a missionary. There is the power to live dangerously.
Take Away: If God gives a vision, He also provides the power to pursue it.
