Ephesians 2:10 (Amplified Bible)
For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].
The whole process of starting a Church from scratch can sometimes be daunting especially when one starts pays to much attention to what you do and do not have.
When you do what wisdom requires and count up the cost of doing a new endeavor before starting you can sometimes become distracted by the so-called facts.
“Okay whose going to pay for all this?”
“Who is going to come to a Church Pastor by me?”
“The Lawyer just told me she wants 250 bucks a Hour!”
“Lord is this you or that pizza I ate last night?”
Don’t let what you don’t have stop you from using what you do have. People are delaying their destiny waiting for some perfect moment when everything they (think) need will be laying there right in front them.
That moment may never come.
If the dream that’s burning in your heart is God given, He’ll lead you into the fullness of it by one seemingly small step of obedience/faith after another until you wake up one day and find your standing in the glory of God.
So start from the beginning and take the first step. When it’s time for the second step what you (really) need will be there waiting for you and now your in position to receive it.
