I heard a great message from Pastor Wayne Cordeiro. It was called ‘Dream Killers’, subtitled ‘What Is Your Devine Destination?’
In his message Pastor Wayne talked about the steps we need to take not only to reach our divine destination, but how to keep the dream alive on the way to reaching that destination.
This is going out into deeper waters, and sounds a lot like what we are doing in a lot of our community groups.
In 1st Samuel (which is one of my favorite chapters) it says in verse 8: “ so the children of Israel said to Samuel, ‘Do not cease to cry out to the Lord our God for us that He may save us from the hand of the Philistines’.”
The Israelites already lost one major battle at Aphek, by getting ahead of God and relying on a sense of false strength from the Ark itself, instead of what the Ark represented. Soon they realized that they must depend solely on the power of God through prayer and not depend on a false representation of who God really is.
