”You have to do something counterintuitive if you want to reah your God-given potential and fulfill your God-given destiny. Sometimes you have to run away from security and chase uncertainty.” Mark Batterson/ If we are longing to be all and do all that God has for us, then we have to disrupt the status quo. This may not be the road that I would have chosen for me, but it feels right somehow. On the road of uncertainty will allow you to experience God like you never have, and no longer will you have to depend on someone else to hear God for you. Godspeed Larry
“Do you ever come to God and say, “Lord, I have worked this all out, I want you to bless it”? What is that saying? “It all depends on me. I want you to make it work, that’s all.” That is trying to mix the old and the new, and it will never work. You cannot do it. God will never go along with that process. He just folds his arms and says, “If that is the way you want to do it, you do it. I’ll watch you.” And he watches us until we fall flat on our face. But when we are discouraged, after finding out it did not work, and cry out, “Lord, help me,” he says, “Here I am. I have been here all along and I am willing to work through you right now, as long as you quit working, depending on yourself.” Ray Stedman. Authentic Christianity
Your greatest breakthrough in your life will happen when you push through your fears. Fear of being alone, fear of rejection. Your biggest fear may just become your greatest opportunity for God to show you what he has for you. Face that which you fear the most. Sometimes our unanswered prayers are for our own good. Think about how young David might have felt when the lion and bears kept attacking his sheep, you would have to believe that he prayed for protection, but God used that as a training ground for Davids biggest assignment, TO KILL GOLIATH.
