Faith, Work & Failure 2

imgresPhil Vischer in Me, Myself & Bob recounts a sermon he once heard: “If God gives you a dream, and the dream comes to life and God shows up in it, and then the dream dies, it may be that God wants to see what is more important to you — the dream or him.  And once he’s seen that, you may get your dream back.  Or you may not, and you may live the rest of your life without it.  But that will be okay, because you’ll have God.”  And “he who has God plus many things has nothing more than he who has God alone,” Phil says, this time quoting C.S. Lewis.

Now listen to Jared C. Wilson:

“You know, it’s possible that God’s plan for us is littleness. His plan for us may be personal failure. It’s possible that when another door closes, it’s not because he plans to open a window but because he plans to have the building fall down on you. The question we must ask ourselves is this: Will Christ be enough?”
