Barcelona, Spain. Right now, Joy and I are with 90 leaders from 21 European nations and the USA in one of Europe’s greatest cities. God is moving, and we are daring to ask Him to use this week to change history. Most of the leaders here are under the age of 35. They are passionate and motivated, and they believe that God has raised them up for this hour.
Ten and a half years ago, it was a vastly different picture.
ILI’s work in Europe was shaken to the core when Dr. Rob Frost of London died after a relatively short battle with cancer.
The day after Rob’s funeral, Joy and I, still numb with grief, met with Martin Durham at a restaurant in downtown London. Martin said, “I will take up the challenge. We will have to restart and build from the ground up. The vision will be Europe ablaze with the Gospel. It will not be easy, but it must be done.”
We prayed that day and recommitted ourselves to God’s work. It was like putting a fresh seed into the ground. Month by month, year upon year, Martin and the Europe Team have stayed true to the vision, and now, a decade later, we are in Barcelona hearing powerful testimonies and seeking God for the next steps.
One of the most important life lessons I have learned
is the significance of vision.
Vision is a God-given ability to look into the future and see what is possible. How is it with your life? Are you living by the power of vision or are you allowing everyday pressures to obstruct your view?
If you know God’s vision for your life, I would love to hear from you. Write it in the comments below and share with me. Or if you don’t know God’s vision, send me an email, and I will share with you some ideas on how you can discover it.
Together, let’s dare to ask God for His vision for our lives.
Christ was the ultimate sacrifice for you to know the love of God. Have you acknowledged His love for you?
God’s love is for all! Even the discounted, rejected, and despised. Do you believe in the love God has for you?
Jesus prayed for us to have as deep of a relationship with the Father as He has with Him. How are you cultivating an intimate relationship with Him?
God wants to know you and be known by you. Will you be committed to your relationship with the Father to grow deeper with Him?
George Barna discovered 10 stages of spiritual growth. God plants us by streams of water so that we may experience all ten stages and flourish in Him.
Have you explored the depths of your relationship with God? God desires to have a deep and intimate relationship with you.
God called Kevin to create the braille version of Christian to the Core. Now countless people are receiving God's vision.
Esther knew God was calling her to trust Him more, but how? Her BOLD OBEDIENCE changed the lives of hundreds of street children in India. Here's how..
How wonderful it is to be found by God! Together, let’s reach the lost!
