In the same way that God protects and rescues Paul (and so many other people in the Bible), God will protect and rescue us as we put ourselves out there - to be used by Him.
Do not be afraid! Do what God has called you to do. We are to be His example on earth. To be His hands and feet to a lost generation. We will come against opposition and rejection and we may even have reason to fear for our own safety. But God is on our side. Amen.
Paul said "But as a result, we stopped relying on ourselves and learned to rely only on God, who raises the dead. And he did rescue us from mortal danger, and he will rescue us again."
Stop relying on yourself and doing things in your strength. Fully depend on God. He can raise the dead! He will rescue you - again and again!
