Saturday morning sharing time was amazing. People shared their hearts about forgiveness, that they have been able to forgive and how freeing it is. They have shared how crazy it is that God speaks through little things like work and peaches. They have heard God speaking to them this week and we have seen dreams being birthed into people hearts.
I’d like to share two of the stories from this morning:
“As I was on my walk with Jesus this week, He showed me a beautiful picture, how we are the little kids in the kitchen wanting to help with cooking, and God is the parent. He doesn’t need our help, and we might make a mess and ruin the whole recipe, but He still allows us to be part of His plan, and allows us to work alongside with Him. He is patient and kind, and very gracious, and encouraging. And with our willingness and His help the Kingdom is brought down to earth.”
“I saw a picture that we are on a relay race, and some of the runners are fast and strong and some not so much, but they have the same mission to get the baton to the finish lane and do it as best as they can. And I saw Wally Wenge and his dream; he had nothing to achieve it, but he said ‘YES’ to God, because he believed that he can do all things through Christ. And he might not have seen all the parts of the race coming together but many years later we see the fruit of Wally’s obedience to say ‘YES’ to God.”
There is blessing in obedience. Obedience comes long before we understand. And it’s ok because we are not supposed to lean on our own understanding. Looking forward to hearing about the fruit that will come from saying YES this week.
God will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! Through His mighty power at work within us, He will outdo them all. – Ephesians 3:20
I hope you all are encouraged, because we all are!
