Like Gideon, you too have a mighty power hidden within that is waiting to be put to good use and accomplish great things. It is not a fanciful thought, but a legitimate one: you can achieve what most people don't if you make a decision. As far as you are concerned, the failures of Church leaders and Pastors in the West are not bad news, for they offer you the perfect opportunity for greatness. Neither you nor I can attain any eminence without the failures of others, just as Moses could not have become a giant without the difficult people of Israel he had delivered from Egypt. Think also of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Elijah and the other Prophets: none of them would have been great characters without the sin of the people. This truth has never changed: without wrongdoing there have never been giants. These were smart enough to take advantage of every opportunity. As you look through the Bible, you will notice that history repeats itself: great people rose only during times of widespread rebellion and decadence. Are you willing to respond in a time of moral disaster like ours? The opportunities are here, right before your eyes, so long as you turn them to your favour. God Himself calls you to do so, for your greatness brings great honour to Him.
