Did I Hear God Right?

Just because you feel like a failure doesn’t mean you weren’t called by God.

My church in Ghana shared the gospel with this man with no immediate results, yet the church continued to push through the obstacles to evangelize in this village and many others. The church didn’t lose hope, but remained faithful to the God who called them to go to places no one else was willing to go. I see this as a reminder—we may never see the results on this side of heaven, but we are to remain faithful and endure to the end. Keep pressing forward. Don’t quit. You can hear God right and still end up “failing.” But if we change our perspective, we may find that they weren’t failures at all.
