“The key is searching for God, learning to listen for his voice, burrowing into his heart, listening to what he says, and then doing it, however simple or complex it might be.
If He says it, do it. If He doesn’t tell you to do anything, then why are you doing things? Why not just sit at his feet?”
“He is the potter, we are only clay. He initiates, we obey. We are very reluctant to initiate projects or ministries, because we vastly prefer his ministry to our own.
“When we look at the call of the disciples, we find Jesus calling them to be with him. If everything in our life flows out from his presence, then we will see the words, works and wonders come from the overflow of his life in us. Instead of seeking to make things happen, we won’t be able to stop them when we speak truth about Jesus.”
So often we’ve said, “Not by might, not by power, but by my Spirit,” says the Lord Almighty, and then exerted all our might, power and manipulative methods to make something happen.
It is time for God to be God.”
