Navigating God’s Call to More – His Method for Our Making

In Process for Planning, we discovered that God does not have an x-step plan for guaranteed success. His plans for His children are dynamic, and unpredictable. There are two ways to learn this. The first way to respond to God’s dynamic nature in planning is to resist, self-manage and control. My experience tells me that […]

Navigating God’s Call to More – The Plan is to Follow

Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday. Psalm 37:5-6 One of the tricks our mind tries to play on us is the interpretation of Scripture to meet its preferences, and […]

Navigating God’s Call to More – God’s Process for Planning

Now that we have positioned ourselves to hear God’s instruction, and discovered the purposes of God in His call to more, we can begin to explore His process for planning.

Navigating God’s Call to More – Discovering the Purpose

As a reminder, this series is being written for those who sense they are in a season of transition – a call by God to more kingdom adventure. God has a way to maximize the “more” of that adventure. It includes preparation, and discovery of purpose, before planning and execution. We are currently in the […]

Navigating God’s Call to More – Context and Constraint

Our ability to navigate God’s call to more rises and falls on our understanding, belief and obedience to His greater purposes. To understand them, we must surrender to His will (John 7:17). It is in our hearts – where man believes – that God stores His desires for “greater than” things. These are the desires […]
