The Word of God invites us into the unfolding cosmic drama of which we have always played a part, even without being aware of it.
Our childhood experiences, triumphs, and tragedies are all part of God’s shaping of our lives, which are, more importantly, about the shaping of His story.
When we understand that our lives are not a random collection of experiences but rather a part of God’s grand drama we discover that we are gifted by God, blessed with talents and treasures, not for our own ends, but as resources to contribute to His plan to redeem the world by His Word.
Leaders then begin to recognize the design and purpose inherent in their lives.
Question for Reflection
- How have your life experiences shaped the way the Lord uses you today?
Quoted from Mark Sayers, Facing Leviathan, 70
