Don’t Let the ‘How’ Stop You from the ‘What’

Mark Batterson, in his book The Circle Maker, writes:

“. . . the will of God never does add up by human calculation. . . Too often we let the how get in the way of what God wants us to do. We can’t figure out how to do what God has called us to do, so we don’t do it at all.”

Ouch. Guilty.

Anybody out there know for certain God has called you to do something but you haven’t done it because you haven’t figured out how it will work?

Anybody out there, likewise, wondering why they haven’t experienced the power of God in their lives lately?

Knowing the how eliminates faith.

Eliminated faith removes the power of God.

Perhaps we should – to quote Nike – “Just Do It.” Who’s with me?
