Pastor Wrinkles: Little Heroes, Big World Pt. 6

100_1447

Today I am concluding the series “Little Heroes, Big World.” If you missed any of the previous discussions you can find them at:

Pt. 1

Pt. 2

Pt. 3

Pt. 4

Pt. 5

Now here is the conclusion of the matter…

In our previous segments we discussed the importance of being strong and the importance of putting our noses to the grindstone and working; But if you are Being Strong and if you are working there is one more thing you have to do as a “Little Hero with Little Power in a Big World.”

YOU NEED TO STOP BEING AFRAID!!

Haggai writes, “This is what I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt. And my Spirit remains among you. Do not fear.’ Hag. 2:6

The truth is, God is going to show up! We are not forsaken! The Lord knows our names and He will never forget us! The remnant church is victorious and powerful! We are not condemned and He has made us more than conquerors! The only battles we have lost are the one which were meant to be lost and we are not called to go running into the woods with out tails between our legs! We are called to love this world with Christ’s love and to say with the old-time hymn writer,

“Faith is the victory!

Faith is the victory!

O glorious victory, that overcomes the world.

His banner over us is love, Our sword the Word of God.

We tread the road the saints above With shouts of triumph trod.

By faith, they like a whirlwind’s breath, Swept on o’er every field.

The faith by which they conquered death Is still our shining shield.

On every hand the foe we find Drawn up in dread array.

Let tents of ease be left behind, And onward to the fray.

Salvation’s helmet on each head, With truth all girt about,

The earth shall tremble ‘neath our tread, And echo with our shout.

Faith is the victory!

Faith is the victory!

O glorious victory, that overcomes the world.”  John Yates, Ira Sankey

If today you need to overcome the world, maybe it’s time for you to get a little strong, do a little work and maybe it is time to shoot down fear by giving up a shout of praise that faith is the victory!

  1. He knows our names and he says “You are mine.” That’s enough for me. I get scared, but when I remember Who I belong to it helps keep me going when I want to stop and hide.
