Get out the way

April 12, 2010

What God wants to do in the lives of our kids is huge.  He wants to captivate their hearts.  He wants to heal their hurts.  He wants to give them a hope and a future.  He wants to activate the dreams and gifts that He has given them.  He wants them to be free to express to the world how awesome He is and all that He has done in their life.

I don’t know about you but we are only scratching the surface of what God wants to do.  What is stopping Him?  It’s not that He doesn’t want to. He wants to use us to lead them to that place, but in order to do that we need to step out of the way.

One way that I’ve found to do that is through fasting.  Fasting is saying to God, “I want you to move here, so I’m going to step out of the way by deny something that my flesh wants to give you room to move”.

Is there anything that God has put on your heart that you know you can’t do? Good (that’s His style).  Try fasting.  God asks, “how much do you want this?”.  Fasting says “this much”.
