As we look at how God prepares us for victory, Pastor Ford explains that sometimes God takes us the long way to our destination, because it has the shortest problems. If He took us the shortest way, we would turn back. But by taking us the long way, He can build us up gradually, until we’re ready to possess what He wants us to possess.
Pastor James Ford Jr. has been the senior pastor of Christ Bible Church of Chicago, located on the south side of Chicago, Ill., for over 35 years. He also serves as the president of Impact Ministries, an outreach ministry committed to strengthening families in the South Shore community of Chicago.
