a great way to start out 2009! this is the year of expectancy and in order to get the unexpected you have to do the unexpected. we had a powerful service last night…the message focused on 6 things we know about the the story of mary and the alabaster box that was “broken”.
1. What she did was unexpected!
2. The PERFUME – was very valuable!
3. She broke the box open!
4. what she did took courage to do!
5. when she broke open the box not everyone liked it!
6. the perfume was pure…but her life was a mess!
the one thing i want this year is to be broken so that the presence of God can spill out all over. the night finished up with an amazing time around the altar. in prayer this week i was so impressed to plant a seed of faith in our students to see the unexpected. Nobody plants a seed without expecting something to grow. whatever you plant you expect to grow! we poured mustard seed into the hands of all the students present.
Hebrews 11:1 What is faith? It is the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot yet see.
I am expecting God to do big things this year…we are going to do the unexpected! it’s time to be broken.
