One of the most overlooked traits of those God uses is that they are tough.
Think about the heroes of the faith…
Noah, Abraham, Moses, Joshua, David, Elijah, John the Baptist, Stephen, Paul and, of course, Jesus… they were all tough.
Now by tough I don’t mean acting like an arrogant thug, bruiser or jerk.
No… I’m talking about being durable, strong, resilient, sturdy and long-lasting in the face of opposition.
Advancing God’s agenda in the place He has you isn’t easy… whatever that place might be.
And you’ve got to be prepared not to cave at the slightest resistence.
For that, you need wisdom and grace.
You need humble boldness.
And you gotta be tough.
