You Cannot Control Outcomes

20 01 2010

This morning Mark Batterson of NCC posted some great insight on ministry.

“One of the lessons I’ve learned in ministry is that you cannot control outcomes. We plant and water, but God gives the increase! That drives us crazy as control freaks, but it also takes all of the pressure off of us. We can’t do it. Only He can!

The most gratifying thing is ministry is when God does something you cannot take credit for. That’s what I live for! And the truth of the matter is this: most of the good things that happen don’t happen because of us. They happen inspite of us. We just need to stay out of the way!” FULL EVOTIONAL POST

Now that is so frustrating, because it’s so true.
