The HOW of God’s Mission

Are you worried about how the things you are facing right now are all going to turn out? You’re in good company.

God’s mission grows best in the habitat of impossibility. 

Over and over again as we’ve opened the Word and studied the missions of those who have gone before us, we see that

Faith is fueled by impossibility.

We vividly remember the night we spread out our budget before God and “told” Him what it would take for us to be in full-time ministry. Many years have passed since then. We look back now and laugh about how much money we thought we needed to survive. As two tenured public educators with handsome salaries, retirement plans, and roths, had we known back then that God was going to call us to the mission field, we would have likely kissed the whole thing off.

Little did we know that while we were totally focused on what we thought we needed…

God was set on what we already possessed.

Over time, He has taken us on a course to prove that not only do we have the keys to His kingdom in our clutches, but that

Faith is the way to access those treasures.

In order to claim what is ours in Christ and live out God’s mission, we must

Let our concerns be the catalyst for greater faith…

Swallow our hesitations…

And, surrender the HOW.

“You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible. ” Matthew 17:20 NLT
