I enjoyed Day 13 of Mark Batterson’s Draw The Circle. He tells one of my favorite stories in the book. His congregation opened Ebenezer’s Coffeehouse. It cost about $3 million and they had a $2 million dollar mortgage on it. He felt prompted to pray for a $2 million dollar miracle so they could be debt free. He asked a few people to join him in prayer. At one point he got impatient and tried to create the $2 million by a business idea he had. He lost about $15,000 instead. But after four years of praying for this goal he received a call and the person gave the ministry $3 million! Wow! I love what the donor told Mark. He said, “You have vision beyond your resources.” Isn’t that great? I want to be a person who has vision beyond my resources. I hope Journey is a church that has “vision beyond our resources.” Today raise your sights. The God who gives us a God sized vision for our lives is the same God who is the great provider. So today dream some God inspired dreams!
Walking by His Spirit,
Journey Christian Church
