Mark Batterson

Sure, you can choose the safety and predictability of the cage, forfeiting the adventure God has destined for you. But you won't be the only one missing out or losing out. When you lack the courage to chase the Wild Goose, the opportunity costs are staggering. Who might not hear about the love of God if you don't seize the opportunity to tell them? Who might be stuck in poverty, stuck in ignorance, stuck in pain if you're not there to help free them? Where might the advance of God's kingdom in the world stall out because you weren't there on the front lines?
Mark Batterson

Embrace relational uncertainty. It's called romance. Embrace spiritual uncertainty. It's called mystery. Embrace occupational uncertainty. It's called destiny. Embrace emotional uncertainty. It's called joy. Embrace intellectual uncertainty. It's called revelation.
Mark Batterson

Most God-ordained dreams die because we are not willing to do something that seems illogical.
Mark Batterson

Faith is unlearning senseless worries and misguided beliefs that keep us captive. It is far more complex than simply modifying behavior. Faith is rewiring the human brain. We are literally upgrading our minds by downloading the mind of Christ.

It's much easier to act like a Christian than it is to react like one. Anyone can put on an act. But your reactions reveal what is really in your heart.
Mark Batterson

Prayer is the difference between seeing with our physical eyes and seeing with our spiritual eyes.
Mark Batterson

God wants you to get where God wants you to go more than you want to get where God wants you to go.
Mark Batterson

Mark Batterson
