Henry Cloud, John Townsend: God Will Make a Way: What to Do When You Don’t Know What to Do

God will make a way for us when we come to the end of ourselves & our abilities, our wisdom etc. However, His way for us does not usually involves supernatural miracles. In order for Him to make a way for us, we have to do the best in what we are responsible for.

There are eight principles to follow when we try to do the best on our part: (1) Begin your journey with God; (2) Choose your travelling companions wisely; (3) Place high value on wisdom; (4) Leave your baggage behind; (5) Own your faults and weaknesses; (6) Embrace problems as gifts; (7) Take life as it comes; (8) Love God with all you are

This is a “to do” book with lots of sharing from the authors. We all know the basics to grow: worship, prayer, reading scripture, serving, etc, but this book provides lots of practical details. And it reminds us: it takes effort and commitment to grow in Christ.

In Matt 25, why is the servant who got $1000 from his being called wicked by his master?

Because that is his opinion to his master, whom he thinks gave him the task to make him suffer and fail. This is to compared to his fellow servants who accept the challenge, knowing that it is their master’s good will to train them up for bigger tasks.
