Facing the Giants
Have you ever faced a seemingly insurmountable task? How did you feel? Did you react with your limbic system or your neo cortex? Are you facing a proverbial “giant” right now in your life? What about your children? What giants are they facing?
How would you have felt facing those giants who stood in the way of the promise? The Israelites felt the same - they were terrified. However, Moses looked back to how God had led them and said, “Let’s move forward in confidence, that God will protect us”, and that is exactly what happened. As they moved forward in faith, God delivered His people (see Deuteronomy 3:3).
Did you know that God has promised you a really bright and wonderful future? (see Jeremiah 29:11). Did you know that Heritage College has a promised bright and wonderful future too? In fact, just this week we had some guests come to the College and asked us some questions that engendered some deep thought and helped us see that God is moving mightily at our college to bring about excellence in learning and excellence in character development. This ‘giant’ reflection process has been a valuable one and one that God has helped us through!
We also have four Japanese students visiting Heritage College who are currently facing a ‘giant’ change to their regular lives. They are transitioning into a new culture, a new language, and a new community. Wow, what a giant process to go through! We can attribute their ease of transition to a God who knows all about a new culture, a new community and a new environment and who can help ease their nerves.
So here is your challenge: face the giants!
