Deuteronomy 5:29 Oh, that their hearts would be inclined to fear me and keep all my commands always, so that it might go well with them and their children forever!
Everyone wants to make a difference.
Everyone wants to do something significant.
Everyone wants their life to count beyond their own time on earth.
Deep down, we all want to be a part of something much larger than ourselves…
Regardless of our beliefs.
I love that in Deuteronomy 5, God gives us some great insight into how to truly lead a God sized movement.
We see what we need to do in order to make a difference.
What we need to do in order to be a part of something significant.
If it were a formula, it might look something like this…
heart + action = blessing
In other words, before you and I will ever be able to lead a significant movement, we must first allow God to work on our hearts. We must come to him open, honest, bare, and willing to change and obey Him… willing to submit to what He wants from us.
That’s what drives us to action. He speaks and moves us to act on what He’s already done in our heart. We become burdened with a God vision and forced to act on it… it’s too deep not to get done when it’s placed in our heart by God.
We sit so we can act.
We seek God and allow him to change our heart.
We do the thing(s) that he places in our heart.
We see the blessing.
That’s where movements are born.
That’s where the world is reshaped.
