planting churches ex nihilo

God made everything out of nothing, ex nihilo.
Hebrews 11:3
Man, as creative as he is, cannot do the same.
He only can humbly receive and reorganize that what
already was made. He can hurt it , damage it, but
cannot completely destroy it.
God calls those things which do not exist as though
they did. Romans 4:17
This is the way we also think and plan. This is how we
enjoy the plan of God.
Like Elisha we see the chariots of fire, when others
see just discouraging circumstances. II Kings 6:16-17
Without this invisible activity around us our life would
be so empty and boring.
Can God start a church in Egypt, Saudi-Arabia, Pakistan?
Can he speak to the darkness and say,” Let there be light”.
If we would dare to go and see, we would be surprised
to find out how capable church planter God is.
It is in His mind.
