We ask God to use us, select us or call us to do something truly spectacular. We want god to have us do something that no one else has ever done. We want to experience a miracle.
And, for many us our perspective changes.
The reality, as is was for Peter, is that if we would keep our eyes on Jesus, we would do great things. If we kept our eyes on Jesus we would be able to accomplish those things that we initially begged God to use us for!
The reality is that behind every great vision of great pastors is a vision of Jesus. If we would keep our eyes on Him, we could accomplish so much more than we ever dreamed.
Don’t let what you see get in the way of your vision.
