He Has A Universe. I Don’t.

Francis Chan, author of Crazy Love, was on the Lifechurch.tv stage yesterday shooting his message for the upcoming One Prayer event.  I could’ve gone to hear him live.

Could’ve.

But, my dear friend, Lance, didn’t tell me about it until it was pretty much over.  I’m not bitter.

Anyhoo, Lance posted a lot of Chan quotes on Twitter yesterday.  This one spoke loudly:

“God does things His way in His universe.  You may think you have a better way, but you don’t have a universe.”

Can you come to terms with the truth that God is God, and He does whatever He pleases? (Psalm 115:3)

And, can you trust that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them? (Romans 8:28)

  1. Those are some great quotes. I enjoyed watching them come over The Twitter. I knew I could’ve gone…but I forgot!! And I can’t even blame that on Lance 🙂

    We don’t even know the number of hairs on our head…but He does!
    I also liked this one: Just because u’ve been thru the fire, it doesn’t mean u have to smell like it. Burn the incense of praise. -Jentezen Franklin

    What would we do without Lance!….yes I am closer to terms with those facts…one truth this year is His love for his children…soooo…when I am going thru something because of one of His other children…well I have to accept the way He handles things…He alwayssss takes care of me and it is a good thing that He doesn’t take my advice…and He jolly well does what pleases Him :)…and Kev I do like what Jentzeen said about the fire….the fire seems to be the place God loves to place me….:)

  5. You know, at least I’m still a “dear friend.” Both Chan’s and Jentezen Franklin’s were good. I encourage people and churches to participate in One Prayer. You can find out more about it at OnePrayer.com

  7. Whoooaaaaa! That was a right on time reminder!!

  8. Read the last 2 chapters (I think) in Job where God speaks to Job and asks him questions. I have been reading it a lot of late and just love how big God is….

    Have you ever given orders to the morning,
    or shown the dawn its place,

    13 that it might take the earth by the edges
    and shake the wicked out of it?

    Job 38:13-14 is my fave:

    Love you and love this blog!
