Catching Fire

God’s invitation for you to step out in audacious faith isn’t going to fall from the sky and hit you in the head. You’ve got to train your eyes to look for it. The impossible becomes possible only as you carefully observe and faithfully obey the direction of the Holy Spirit.

God wants to increase your influence and multiply your impact in more ways than you could ever imagine. But he doesn’t always do that by calling you to make dramatic changes in your life overnight. He probably won’t call your family to relocate to a remote jungle before the end of the month and translate the Bible into Braille for a tribe of blind cannibals. More likely, some ordinary opportunity or responsibility in your everyday life will seem to catch fire. Faith opens your eyes to see the potential to serve a God who is already at work on your behalf.

So don’t leave all the good parts for the Christian-celebrity A list. Don’t be disillusioned by a lack of special effects in your life. You’re probably standing next to a burning bush right where you live and work. That’s where audacity started for me. That’s where audacity started for Moses. And it’s not a bad starting place for you.
