How Do You Accomplish Great Things?

I can accomplish great things.

They are not great because of the attainment of fame, riches, or prestige.

They are great because I let God act within me.

These words from Jesus Manifesto by Leonard Sweet and Frank Viola spoke directly to me:

“He doesn’t want us to imitate Him: instead, Christ, the Unspeakable Gift, wants to live in and through us.

I know if I live my life with this in mind, I will accomplish many great things (Philippians 4:13).

More important, these things will be great because they line up with God’s will for me.

During centering prayer, I “consent to God’s presence and action within.”

During my non-centering prayer times, I let God’s presence and action within me motivate my external actions.

I then let the Spirit’s action within me during centering prayer motivate my actions in all areas of my life.
