The other night, I got a frantic email from one of my team about a big event that we’ve been planning. Our venue was no longer available! We have no choice; we’ll have to move it or cancel!
WHAT? You gotta be kidding me!
So, we immediately started looking for open dates and we couldn’t find ANYTHING within 3 months!
What are we going to do? I’m SHOOK! I’m FREAKING OUT! This DOESN’T FIT! How am I going to make this work?
I stressed about it all evening and then went to bed. The next morning when I got up… I FINALLY prayed about it.
I asked God, “Are You up to something?”
- “Are You trying to do something NEW?
- “Are You trying to move us to a NEW SPACE?
- “Are You trying to move us to a NEW NIGHT?
- “Are You trying to do things in a NEW WAY?”
“God, I’m NOT gonna try to make this fit. Far be it from me to get in Your way!”
What is the Creator of the Universe trying to say? What if this move is not even about us? What if God is trying to keep people out of hell and He just wants to use us?
Working with God requires an enormous amount of TRUST!
We have to relax and just be content to be pieces on God’s giant chessboard. Be FLEXIBLE and willing to move at His command because only He can see the entire board!
“Ok God, I’m here…it’s Your move!”
Has God ever drastically rearranged events in your life that turned out BETTER than you expected? Tell me about it!
