When we trust in him, we're free to say whatever needs to be said, bold to go wherever we need to go. Eph 3:12
I was challenged this week that I have to keep pursuing the vision God has given me with boldness and tenacity. We all need reminders! God has given me a HUGE vision for Uncommon Church here in Austin. I believe that God has called us here to reach 20,000 people in the next 10 years. I believe that it will be HARD work, require great sacrifice and be the greatest adventure of my life. But, I know that God has called me to it. I believe that my trust is in Him, and so we can do it.
The truth is, when there is a HUGE vision, it's often hard to see the how! Sometimes it seems impossible. In fact, it can seem overwhelming. That's why I believe it is crucial to have trust in God. Trust that He will provide. Trust that if He has called you, you will have what you need when you need it. Trust that God will see you through. There is no guarantee that the journey won't be painful. There is no promise that it won't require your life. But, there is a promise that God will never leave you or forsake you.
Acts 10:38-39 says that Jesus was able to accomplish all He did because God was with Him. Believe me, if God is with you, you can accomplish ALL that He has called you to. There will be days that it seems crazy, tough and impossible. But, remember who has called you, who is with you and where your trust is!
Because God is with me I believe we can do great things. And, because He is with me, I can speak truth in boldness! Because God is with me I believe we can change this city.
Because God is with you I believe you can do everything He has called you to do!
