Often times when we want to do something big, we tend to rely on the results our eyes would want to see. This isn’t exactly wrong but one must always leave room for God to be God. While reading The Message bible it was clear that when Jesus sent his disciples out into the world, He knew that He only had 11 men to start off this massive commission. He knew that this was gonna be “BIG” and yet He started it out with 12 men….including one who betrayed Him….to change the world.
Sometimes the biggest fulfilled dreams and plans in our lives start from the most humble beginnings.
When it comes to matters about the Lord, we need not think of how He’s going to move in ours or someone else’s life. He is a big God therefore it is only right to believe that He will move…in big ways.
The following passage spoke to me. It showed me that one thing i need to do, in ever increasing measure, is to make myself available for His use regardless of situation I may be in at the time. I often concern myself with the limitations of my effectivity on stage as an artist.
I believe that once we agree to trust Him in all areas of our lives, it opens up the room…. the space, for God to be and do all that He said He would inside a willing heart.
When God calls you to do something only you can do…JUST DO IT.
Matthew 10:9-10 (Msg)
Don’t think you have to put on a fund-raising campaign before you start. You don’t need a lot of equipment. You are the equipment, and all you need to keep that going is three meals a day. Travel light.
Be encouraged my friend. His plans are good…and always will be good for you.
HOW COOL IS THIS YOU GUYS?! Like a Biblical theme park! Heehee! So cute! I think this is a really great idea to share God’s Word and make it come alive to more people, especially to kids! Here’s an excerpt from the site:
The Ark Encounter is a one-of-a-kind historically themed attraction. In an entertaining, educational, and immersive way, it presents a number of historical events centered on a full-size, all-wood Ark, which should become the largest timber-frame structure in the USA.
Plans for the attraction include a Walled City, the Tower of Babel, a first-century Middle Eastern village, a journey in history from Abraham to the parting of the Red Sea, a walk-through aviary, a large petting zoo, and so on.
It is designed to be family oriented, historically authentic, and environmentally friendly.
Personally, I would looove to see them recreate the first century village and actually experience being inside it! I love that it’s privately funded (they’re asking for donations!) and environmentally friendly as well. Praise God for these people! :)
Check out the website and explore it yourself. Pretty amazing. ♥
