See What God Will Do

“For who has despised the day of small things?” - (Zechariah 4:10)

I remember when we were starting the Harvest Crusades, and it was a big leap of faith to go to the Pacific Amphitheatre. We went to a facility that seated some 15,000 people, but we took that leap of faith together. We prayed. We worked. And God honored it and blessed it as we saw the amphitheatre filled each night. And on the final night, we even broke attendance records there, which had been previously held by some rock band.

So the next year we said, “Let’s really go crazy. Let’s go for the stadium.” That is a big leap from a 15,000-seat venue to one that seated 50,000. But we didn’t have the resources to do it. So we prayed, “Lord, it would be kind of exciting to take that step of faith. If You want us to do it, then we pray that You’ll provide.”

The next day we got a phone call from a committed Christian man who said, “I heard about what you are doing, and I would like to make an investment in your ministry. Is there anything I could give toward it?”

We said, “Well, we’re thinking about this stadium idea. . . .”

He said, “Okay, I’ll take care of that. I’ll write you a check tomorrow.”

We always think about the failures. We prepare for failures. Then we are surprised when God brings success into our lives. When we take that gift He has given to us and say, “I want to use it for Your glory. I’m going to try this. Let’s see what the Lord will do,” that is when things happen.

It is wrong for us to take what belongs to God and squander it. We should take it, invest it, and then see what the Lord will do.
