Today I’ll be recording a podcast about the series Dare to Dream and you can download and listen later in the day or evening. I’ll be exploring upcoming installments on the series and reflecting on the power of God unleashed when we dare to dream. If you’ve never been a dreamer – if you’ve been a live for the moment kind of person then let your creative side stretch and grow. I’ve already seen miracles taking place, I’ve witnessed unexpected generosity, I’ve had people write to me about spiritual growth they are experiencing, I’ve encountered obstacles, and I’ve seen solutions presented.
We need to understand, as I have, whenever there is a move from God we will witness obstacles that come into our path. The force of evil fights against the move of God. Think back to Jesus temptations to abandon the ministry. The first was to abandon his divine calling – to live for “bread alone.” The second was to test God – to make God prove something – jump off the top of the temple. The third temptation was to have it all and never really sacrifice anything. These were all the opposite of what following Jesus is about. The temptations you face are the same ones Jesus faces: to live only for today, to test God and not trust God, and to think you can have it all without sacrifice.
What this series is about it trusting God for an amazing adventure of faith. It begins and ends with trust. We are people of faith not fear. When you get a chance to write, share with me things that you experience. Share the move of God in your life, the growth, the miracles, the obstacles thrown in your path, the generosity you share or receive, or insights God gives you. It will be an exciting time.
I have a very exciting announcement to make about something that happened this week that will be a blessing to many of the children and parents of the learning program at BLC. I will share it on September 13th. Until then….
