Take Another Look – DAY 1

Over the next 30 days we invite you to join us in a daily devotion called ‘Take Another Look’. This devotion was sent to all the Australian Christian Church (ACC) Pastors and Leaders across our nation leading up to our National conference, each day it was a blessing to Clare and I. We would love to share it with you so you too can ‘take another look’ at various issues. We trust these short, daily devotions will both inspire and challenge you to look again at different areas of your world and ministry.

 

Day One is from Ps Wayne Alcorn, the National President of the ACC.

 

I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what he will say to me, and what answer I am to give to this complaint.” (Habakkuk 2:1  NIV)

 

Leadership, and life in general, can lure us into ruts, and it’s so easy to become trapped into doing the same thing week after week. Before you know it, the weeks become years, and we miss moments and opportunities to embrace new seasons and new things that God is doing.

 

Never forget, He is the one who…

… ‘makes all things new’ (Revelation 21:5)

… gives ‘new mercies every morning’ (Lamentations 3:23)

… pours ‘new wine into new wine skins’ (Luke 5:37)

 

So my friend, let’s open our hearts, and allow Him to speak to us again, because when He does, we see things in a completely different (even prophetic) light. We see more opportunity than opposition. We see the Church as it is meant to be.  We see His Kingdom coming in power!

 

TODAY: TAKE ANOTHER LOOK… and allow Him to speak to you.
