The content of this video challenges me a great deal!
Do you think I feel sorry for this person? Quite frankly when I watch that video, I feel sorry for myself, because that guy is doing the most with what God has given him. He is not wallowing in self-pity and worrying about what he lacks, but instead, he is picking himself up, drawing strength from God and using ALL he has to bless others. What is Christianity? THAT IS. What have we made it into? Everything except that. Is that why so many do not have the time for church and what Christians have to say? Quite likely.
Do you want to know what faith that moves mountains is? It is the power of God which dwells within this man and many other, and which supernaturally allows him to see himself not as the world sees him: disabled, dependant, needy, desperate, inferior, pitiful, BUT AS GOD, his creator and Father, created Him to be: a fighter, a warrior, an apostle, victorious, strong as an ox, determined, unbreakable, a far superior being than any of us, the apple of God’s eye, destined to conquer in battle and to receive a glorious crown and eternal joy when he goes to meet His Father.
Why is he happy? Because he is living out God’s vision for His life. Why does he come across as complete when in the world’s eyes he is lacking so very much? Because he is walking into the life which God gave him with acceptance, joy, faith and a clear sense of purpose. He is maximizing the power of what God has blessed him with and using it to bring praise and glory to God. He is walking by faith and not by sight and when we do that, our heart and soul line up with the heart and spirit of God with such symmetry and harmony that we become partakers of what God is; we begin to see our life and the world through God’s eyes. When that happens, there is peace within and nothing to fear.
