On Wednesday, November 21, students and faculty at Regent gathered to hear Brigitte Gabriel speak at Regent Law’s weekly chapel.
In addition to founding ACT, the largest national security grassroots organization in the U.S. – with over one million members – Gabriel is a regular guest analyst on Fox News Channel, CNN and many American and international media outlets worldwide.
Despite her accomplishments and accolades, Gabriel’s message to faculty and students alike was humble – “to know what God is asking you to do.”
Gabriel shared her life’s story. Born in Lebanon, she survived war in the Middle Eastliving in an 8×10 underground bomb shelter from the age of 10 until 17. These years would shape her passions, career aspirations, and love for the Lord as she witnessed the Lord’s nearness and comfort amidst the terror of a war-torn country.
“I look back on my life and I realize that every single thing that God orchestrated happened for a reason – as a preparation for what I’m doing today.”
Her life’s mission – “To stand up for freedom and make sure America will always be safe and secure for generations to come.”
Gabriel assured the audience, “No matter what trials or tribulations you’re going through right now; God has a plan for you. He’s orchestrating everything.” “God’s hand is in our life, whether we recognize it or not” she added.
She charged the audience, “Every single one of you is being prepared right now to make a difference for the country.”
