The power of one never underestimates its strength. One can make a difference in almost anything.
You and God make a majority. You’ve heard that before. Often, we forget it. When a person agrees with God, that is all it takes for Him to work. Whether it is spiritual history or secular history, it takes just one to make the deciding difference.
Abraham decided to obey God and leave the Ur of the Chaldees. So, the nation of Israel began.

Today, God is still using one person at a time to do His work in your community. All it takes is one to listen to God and then obey His instruction. The next time you say to yourself, I can’t do it. I don’t know how? Who am I? Surely God is not talking to me — they are just excuses. If God challenges your heart, then you are the one, the one who can make a difference for all eternity for someone.
