The Painter Did It
 

By faith Moses… refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin.

During a hotel stay in France, the founder of Greater Europe Mission, Robert Evans, determined to share his faith with the staff he encountered there. He quickly discovered that many of them were familiar with Gospel, and some had already come to faith in Christ. Evans was interested in how they came to know about Christ and found that it was one of the workers—the hotel painter—who had shared his faith. “Almost everything here gets constant painting,” explained the man. “My work gets me into every department of the building, I know everybody and everybody knows me. Of course, I tell them about my Lord.”


This is a great reminder that our mission field is wherever we are. For Moses, it was the desert. He did his greatest work for the Lord in the hardest locations. Sometimes our situations are difficult and challenging, but having a Moses-like faith can help us see beyond the temporal and into the eternal. Don’t be frustrated if you’re tending sheep in the desert or painting a wall somewhere. God has a wonderful way of using us to reach people wherever we are.


“A sage seeks opportunities in difficulties, and a fool finds difficulties in opportunities.” We are born to overcome difficulties through the power of the Holy Spirit.

In 1991 a huge deposit of natural diamonds was found at a location in a remote corner of Canada's Northwest Territory, about 120 miles south of the Arctic Circle. By 1998, the EKATI mine was operational and it was estimated that just one pit would yield an astonishing number of diamonds, seven or eight million carats. In fact, from 1998 through 2009, 40 million carats were produced from the mine's six open pits.
