Chapter 4 - The Lexicon - Or: "What does he mean by that?"

In this chapter Steven takes a moment to clarify some of the terms he uses to make sure everyone is on the same page. He then summarizes the book using those terms in one declaration:

"Your Sun Stand Still prayer,
based on your Page 23 vision,
activated by audacious faith,
will mark your life by the miraculous,
empower you to achieve the impossible, 
and put you in the middle of a move of God."  (p.42)

How do all of these concepts fit together? That's what the rest of the book is about. Does this sound like something you want for your life? 

It's your turn: What is one thing that God has been leading you to do that you feel is beyond your capability? Are you starting to think about it a little differently now? 

The book is, SUN STAND STILL: What Happens When You Dare to ask God for the Impossible, by Steven Furtick.  For more click here: Steve Furtick

Tomorrow, chapter five:  Ignite the Ordinary.  Hope you'll join me.

Good question.

God has been leading me to do multiple things that are beyond (as in WAY beyond) my capability. The one idea that continues to bounce in my head is adoption. The next is to teach myself and my family to serve others. Lastly, to write about serving. Whew. That's a lot for one selfish girl who struggles to think outside of herself.

Ignite the ordinary...hmmm, sounds good.
