Shameless Audacity

…yet because of your shameless audacity he will surely get up and give you as much as you need.”

Luke 11:8

 

There are times when you need to do whatever it takes. You need to grab hold of the horns of the altar and not let go. You need to dare demonic forces to a duel. You need to do something crazy, something risky, something different.

(Draw the Circle pg 44)

 

The beauty of obedience is this: it relieves us of responsibility. It takes all of the pressure off of us and places it squarely on God’s sovereign shoulders.

(Draw the Circle pg 45)

 

Sometimes we’re afraid of praying for miracles because we’re afraid that God won’t answer, but the answer isn’t up to us. We never know if the answer will be yes, no, or not yet. But the answer isn’t up to us. It’s not our job to answer; it’s our job to ask. And Jesus exhorts us to ask.

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”

(Draw the Circle pg 45)

 

What’s your dream? What’s your miracle? What’s your need?

Have you asked?

I’m asking for God to stir a message in my heart to speak, write and share about it.

I’m asking God to move in my excess and clear out the clutter – in my house and in my heart.

I’m asking God to change the way I lead worship in our church – let me not worry about what goes wrong, but let me be fully engaged in His Spirit.

Don’t wait. Ask today. Seek today. Keep circling. Write it down. Let God do His job, you do yours.

The greatest tragedy in life is the prayers that go unanswered simply because they go unasked. (Draw the Circle pg 46)
