I am one.
You are one person.
I am one person.

I read a few chapters in Judges and a verse in chapter 3 made an impression on me. It says, "Then the land had rest forty years."
Why? Because one child of God followed the LORD faithfully. Think about this. God will bless an entire community because of His faithful children who are part of it. When God brings prosperity to one of His children that prosperity has the potential to positively impact all who are around that child. When God's child is at peace all that child's world can be blessed by that peace.
That child of God will be a haven of peace to his/her worlds.
What power lies within us!
Power rooted in Almighty God!
The picture above is of an actress playing Deborah, my absolute favorite judge in Judges. Her life verse is one I cannot read to often. In Judges 5:7 Deborah says, "The peasantry ceased, they ceased in Israel, Until I, Deborah, arose, Until I arose, a mother in Israel."
