When Paul saw Jesus on the road to Damascus, he felt God give him a mission to preach the Gospel to all the nations (Galatians 1:16). However he faced intense opposition. He was stoned, falsely accused, threatened, and shipwrecked, but Church history tells us he traveled far and wide. He found a way! We sometimes think that if we have a dream, even one given by God that it won’t require tenacity. The truth is all goals require the faith to hold fast to God and persevere.
Additional Scripture: Luke 1:37, Philippians 3:13-14
