We've essentially stepped into the impossible.
We didn't have to see the end in order to begin...we just needed to obey...possible or not.
Some days I think God is simply going to have to pour provisions from heaven if this is really going to happen...if we're ever going to reach that enormous number. That seemingly unattainable goal.
However, thus far, He has used all sorts of practical and not-so-pratical things to slowly and steadily make the impossible possible.
I really believe we should spend more time in the impossible.
At the end of ourselves.
In the realm of taking Kingdom-sized-heart-of-God risks that other than His involvement, there's no way it can be accomplished!
Isn't it then that we see Him? Really see Him.
When it's beyond all of our talents and abilities and creativity and mental capabilities and so on, there's nothing left but to see the undeniable activity of our God and give Him thanks and praise and glory.
Jesus replied, "What is impossible with men is possible with God." Luke 18:27
