911_americanflag_groundzero

Sept. 11, 2001—the day that changed the face of America forever.

Who among us will ever forget the image of those blazing, then crumbling towers? Who could forget the gruesome sight of those who jumped to their deaths from the 110-story towers or the images of ash-covered New Yorkers in the streets? Or the days and weeks of sorrow that followed as the death toll climbed during search and rescue efforts?9

But did America really change? Or did we too quickly forget and go back to business as usual?

Don't Run From Your Giants

Most of us would do anything to avoid life’s trials. But God always brings good out of the hard times we endure.


Know this: There will always be an opposition to your mission. Whenever you step out and begin to walk in obedience to God, there is going to be some kind of opposition from the devil. As soon as Jesus was baptized by John, He had to face temptation in the wilderness (see Matt. 4:1; Mark 1:12; Luke 4:1).

Your opposition and adversity will take different forms at different times. Today you may be facing a health problem. Last year you may have been in a financial bind. Two years ago perhaps you lost your job.
