Last night Missio Lux Launched!
As I was praying for it Friday morning, the Lord gave me a specific instruction. He has been showing me much about Joshua these days; Joshua was one who knew how to spend time in the presence of the Lord and in that, he was given big responsibility to lead God's people into the Promised Land.
But, he was tested. When the 12 spies were sent into scout out the Promised Land, only two, Joshua and Caleb came back saying that "because God was with them, they could go in." The other ten chose to look at the giants instead, and gave a report of fear instead of faith.
I was challenged on Friday to respond to the giants that came big and strong until the Launch with faith, not fear. And, they did come~in lots of different ways, including not getting all the sound and technology together until 5 minutes before the service started. But, in it all, I knew that the giants build our faith if we choose to respond in faith, not fear.
I feel like Elijah this morning, after he was confronted by all the false prophets and saw God bring forth the miraculous.~but he was exhausted when it was all over.
I will write more about the Launch. But, until then, let's walk in the spirit of Joshua as we respond to the giants in our life in faith, knowing that the God of miracles is much bigger!
