Faithfulness in the Storm

Storm clouds at night

It was a stormy night in Birmingham, England, and Hudson Taylor was to speak at a meeting at the Severn Street schoolroom. His hostess assured him that nobody would attend on such a stormy night, but Taylor insisted on going, saying,

I must go even if there is no one but the doorkeeper.

Less than a dozen people showed up, but the meeting was marked with unusual spiritual power.

Half of those present either became missionaries or gave their children as missionaries; and the rest were faithful supporters of the China Inland Mission for years to come.

—W. Wiersbe, Wycliffe Handbook of Preaching and Preachers

So, be encouraged.

It doesn’t matter how young or old, how fit or disabled, how many of how few, how academic or intellectually challenged your group is. When you minister under the anointing of the Holy Spirit, God moves!
