Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us…
God is at work, and He is powerful. I do not want to be satisfied with status quo or minor kingdom advances. This year is to be an “immeasurably more” year. I am asking God regularly to do more than I can think or imagine.
THE “GOD CREATES” LESSON
It shouldn’t surprise us that God can create something out of nothing. After all, He spoke the universe into existence at creation. When I believe that God needs my help to get something started, I must remember that He wants me to follow Him, not lead Him.
These past few weeks, God has birthed two studies that didn’t exist earlier this summer. In one case, He did it all by Himself. In the other case, He prompted me to follow His lead. In both situations, nothing would have happened without His work.
So…if God can create something out of nothing, I wonder what He has in mind for us in the next few months. I want to be fully aware of what He is doing, and I want to be fully available when He invites me to join Him.
THE “7-IN-17” INITIATIVE
As I mentioned in the April newsletter, there are over 600 individuals involved in asking God regularly to assist them in helping at least seven people find Him or return to Him this calendar year.
I have heard many accounts from others and have experienced several situations myself where GOD MOVED SUPERNATURALLY in answer to these prayers. KEEP PRAYING!!
God appears to be moving us toward an “8-in-18” Initiative. There will be more to come on that topic in our next newsletter.
