     On page 52ff of Mark Batterson’s book Draw The Circle he talks about a “God-idea” versus a good idea.  The Scripture says that we are to be led by the Holy Spirit; he will lead us if we let him.  In my life the idea of starting a church from scratch in Fairbanks, Alaska was a true God-idea.  I didn’t come up with it.  I could not have pulled it off it God had not acted.  But He did and there are moments I step back in amazement at what God has done.    I see lives changed on a regular basis.  Addictions broken, salvation accepted, growth started are all regular parts of my experience at Journey.  What God-idea is planted in you?  Is it time for you to start that new business?  Or go to a foreign mission field?  Or become an inner city public school teacher?  Or write that book that will impact thousands?  Pray regularly, consistly, boldly and specifically for God to give you His leading, His ideas.  A God-idea changes everything!

Hoping To Be Surprised,
