Declare the Obvious

(Cancun - 3/2/19)

This morning, in my church family which is called Redeemer, God is going to do great things.

I posted that this morning on social media. I wrote: "God is going to do great things @ Redeemer this morning. Why not in your church, too?"

God is all-knowing. God is all-powerful. God is all-loving. God is mercy and grace, truth, forgiveness, correction, and wisdom. Entirely.

God, in his glorious Entirety, will manifest his omni-being wherever his people gather. That's today.

So, I declare this. I declare the obvious.

To me this is important. It fills me and my people with expectation. Let's call this a biblical psychology of expectation. The opposite of which is non-expectation. 

A. W. Tozer writes:

"The church is afflicted by dry rot. This is best explained when the psychology of non-expectation takes over and spiritual rigidity sets in, which is an inability to visualize anything better, a lack of desire for improvement." (Tozer, Rut, Rot, or Revival: The Problem of Change and Breaking Out of the Status Quo, p. 6)

Pastors, worship leaders, teachers, people of God - declare something this morning. Declare the obvious. Our mighty God is with us, in our community, filling the temple. He is about to do great things!
