I ran eight miles this morning. When I go on the longer runs, generally there is space and quiet enough that God speaks to me. This morning, as is often the case, it was in the form of ideas. I believe that they are God-generated ideas that he has made me a steward of.
Here they are:
1. Start a special needs kids foundations for daughters like my own. God showed me how to fund it.
2. Start a foundation to honor the memory of kids who have died while serving on the mission field. I’ll be speaking to two families in the next several days.
3. Organize this blog into three caring sub-communities. This has been in process for a couple of weeks and I’ll be finishing it up this weekend and rolling it out to you at the beginning of next week. To me it’s a model of the activist church that Jesus had in mind. It starts in virtual space, but flows into real time and produces life change.
4. Turbo-charge a business I’m part owner of through one small but crucial decision that will produce millions of dollars, many of which will go to missions.
5. He reminded me he has invested me with authority and spoke about a few specific people in whose lives I need to exercise it to help them reach their destinies. They can’t lead others unless they more effectively lead themselves by demonstrating humility as Brennan Manning and Henri Nouwen have.
The point I want to make has nothing to do with me – my life is just an illustration. God is interested in speaking to us and partnering with us to bring his kingdom to earth. Our job is to create the space and the listening ear – to posture ourselves to hear him.
Are you doing that? Are you creating space so that he can speak to you?
