It has been quite a journey for the last 40 days. When we started, I wasn’t quite sure how everything would turn out. All I knew is that God wanted us to respond in faith and obedience. Sometimes I wonder if some of the characters in the Bible felt what I felt going through the 40 Days to Destiny. I think about Abraham, Noah, Moses, Mary, and so many others who responded to God in faith and obedience. Many times things do not make sense or even seem possible when God tells us to do something.
This is why the Apostle Paul reminded us that, “we live by faith, not by sight” (2 Co 5:7). And faith is “being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do no see” (Heb 11:1). All we knew in this journey of faith was that God wanted us to experience more of what He has destined for us as a church.
When the totals came in after the Miracle Sunday Offering, I was blown away. In just one Sunday offering we raised $137,003.93! To some churches’ standards, it might not be much but in terms of where we are and the composition of our church members, it is truly a miracle and we give God all the glory!
I am so blessed to be a pastor of an awesome church that is made up of awesome people. I am truly humbled and grateful.
“And without faith it is impossible to please God…” (Heb 11:6).
