“Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior”
Tonight I stood in Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City as a stadium full of Oklahomans of different denominations and churches all stood out together and sang these powerful lyrics, in the song led by Taya Smith and Hillsong United.
I looked around the stadium and saw hands raised all over shouting this anthem.
And I considered, what if everyone actually meant these words that came out of their mouths?
If these words were meant by those in the arena, the churches represented would see revivals occurring, they would see lives being transformed by Christ in incredible ways, they would be stirred with a passion to be Christ to their neighbors and love them like they never have before. Those things start to happen when we can step out in faith and truly believe God can do incredible things through us.
In a season in America where there is much division and conflict, tonight was a powerful reminder that above all the tension America and the world is seeing right now, there is a God above the storms that has everything in His hands and that, no matter what doubts the enemy may put in front of us, the best is very much yet to come.
But this only happens when we intentionally step out in faith and trust God to accomplish the things beyond our ability. I sincerely pray and hope that many left the arena tonight with a sense of purpose and vision beyond anything they have considered before and are believing God to do things that are considered impossible through them. Then local churches will begin being stirred and passionate, and this city and this nation will begin to be transformed.
But an action is required of us in order for this to happen: we must step out in faith where God has called us and act with confidence.
