He is the God of the Miraculous
This phrase came to my mind, "He is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that we are able to ask or think according to the power that works within us."
I won't go into the details here, but before the afternoon was over, we had met three different people who are investing blood, sweat, tears, and dollars in ministry to people in downtown Greenville. Each one of these men were encouraging and offered their support as we take our next leap of faith. Chris and I spent the entire afternoon downtown. We now have four different buildings that are possible locations for Transformation House. And that's just the beginning!
Our families went to RWOC for the evening service. One of the first songs we sang was He's Able by Deitrick Haddon. Then, Pastor Steven Ward got up and told us that we need to keep knocking until God opens the door but that we shouldn't expect Him to open a door if we aren't knocking.
After worship, Pastor Ben Miller preached a GREAT word on dealing with frustrations. I won't describe his message here because I believe every word was straight from God's heart to mine. But, he ended by reading Ephesians 3:20 - you know, the verse that says God is "able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us."
At Transformation House, we are believing for great things. While we're believing, we're working as if it depends on us, knocking and expecting the door to open, asking knowing He will answer, bleeding because it's a cause worth dying for, praying because we know it depends on God alone, giving because if it's worth having, someone else needs it too, and living like King's kids.
Wouldn't you like to be a Transformer too?
