I am presently in Nairobi, Kenya ministering to present and future apostolic leaders from Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, India, South Africa, Netherlands, and the USA. Many are young leaders, filled with vision from God to start churches and church planting movements in their nations. It is thrilling. Last week I experienced the same in Malaysia, ministering to young leaders called to expand the Kingdom of God in the nations of Asia. It gives me such hope for the generations to come. I find many of these young leaders are walking in simple faith, trusting the living God for whatever it takes to expand His Kingdom. And God is meeting them in miraculous ways.
A. W. Tozer once said, “Many of us Christians have become extremely skillful in arranging our lives so as to admit the truth of Christianity without being embarrassed by its implications. We arrange things so that we can get on well enough without Divine aid, while at the same time ostensibly seeking it. We boast in the Lord but watch carefully that we never get caught depending on Him . . . . For true faith, it is either God or total collapse.”
Convicting, isn’t it? Jesus told his disciples one day, “Have faith in God.” (Mk 11:22) It is that simple, yet that profound. Let’s purpose in our hearts this week to trust our God completely, relying only on Him…God or total collapse!
