Happy Easter!!! Jesus is a live!!
I hope you’re looking forward to celebrating this wonderful event today!!
You made it through all 35 days. I hope you have been blessed by this time. I pray you’ve been brought closer to God and each other. I certainly have!
Do you know I’ve written in the last month over 20,000 words!! That’s the equivalent of two-degree dissertations!!! Buts its been wonderful I’ve loved sharing my heart about God with you and all his plans.
Why did we do this?
Well the story starts at the church family meeting in February this year which ended with my summary which was roughly as follows:
“I think Community Church is going quite well. Everyone’s seems to be quite happy (I hope) I don’t really have any visions for what’s going to happen in the future but if we just sit back, we can enjoy the ride with God.”
I don’t know about you, but often later God gives me a telling off!
God asked me why I had such low expectations of Him when He is the God of the universe!!
God asked me why I trusted him so little when He had done so much in the past.
God reminded me that He was a good father and he loved giving good things to His children.
God said why don’t you write down all the things you’d love to see me do in this Church and Blackburn.
So not wanting to argue with God I did and, here what I wrote:
Pretty shocking isn’t it. I was quite scared.
Have we got the resources for all that lot of course not!!!!
Has God of course He has!!
After scripture, as a church, we need to be primarily guided by the Holy Spirit and the Prophetic and a lot of those things God may, or may never allow us to do.
However, we’ve got a big God!! Why can’t he do those things?
I don’t know about you, but I’d love to go on a journey with God in the following years and see Blackburn turned upside down for His Glory just like he did in the book of Acts
We need to develop a big faith because we’ve got a big, big God who is good and who loves his people to step out in faith.
What would your list look like for yourself and for church? Go on write it down today.
Pray it through. Tell people, you’re going to have loads of things
That’s why we pray because God wants us, I believe, to ask Him for stuff for Hid Glory!!
Lets as a church dream big for His Glory. To see His Kingdom come in Blackburn and in our church just like it is in heaven.
Are you excited about what God can do? I am! I hope you are to!
Come Lord Jesus come!
