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,
