Grasshoppers & Wild Dogs

Written by Doug Giles on April 7, 2023

Have you ever been slogging on your way to a meaningful goal and you suddenly find yourself in a situation that plunged you WAAAAY over your head?

In that moment, we’ve got a decision to make: press on with the vision, or throw in the towel.

Long before we fight that battle in the real world, we fight it in our own heads. [Spoiler alert: it’s all about the ‘vision’ of the guy in the fight.]

We see the exact same problem we see in the passage we’re looking at today.

God’s people were, like we are today, faced with a decision — trust God and his leading, or trust the Debbie downers with all their reasons it can never be done.

While you’re at it, here’s his latest book:

John The Baptist: A Rude Awakening Precedes A Great Awakening.

This timely little tome chronicles the politically incorrect ministry of one of God’s most effective wildmen, John the Baptist, who prepared the way for Christ’s ministry.

The abrasive message of repentance John preached 2000 years ago is still confrontational and offensive today — but it is also life-changing.

In our putrid, worldly culture that has turned away from God, this book is a must-read for every Christian.

Available in paperback for those of you who like the feel of the pages in your hot, little hands, on Kindle to keep it right at your fingertips, and as an epic Audiobook.
