Isaiah 54:2-3 (NIV, 2011)
2 “Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. 3 For you will spread out to the right and to the left….”
I remember reading these words two years ago, and God giving me the vision of Mountain View expanding out from the middle four bays to the right and the left in our existing facility. Not soon after that vision, did we get the chance to expand and renovate that bay to the right. Mountain View, you stepped up, and we funded that expansion and renovation with no debt!
Two years later, God has opened an incredible door for us to purchase the building and the buildable lot next door. UNBELIEVABLE. With every faith step we have taken over the last 14 years regarding moving facilities, occupying new space, and renovations, we have asked the Mountain View family to pray, listen, and respond to the Spirit’s leading. I’m asking Mountain View to do the same again now.
The appraisal has come back matching our negotiated price for the building to the penny at $1.5M. We have spent the last 18 months thinking we were raising money for land in our A Different View campaign, but God was putting us well on our way to having the down payment we need to purchase our facility and the lot next door.
Mountain View, we need to raise $150,000 soon to have the full down payment at time of closing. We believe we will have a finalized and signed contract by the end of this year.
Now I’ve often been like Mary, the mother of Jesus, when she questioned the news of her soon-to-be virgin birth of the Messiah and asked, “How can this be?” And Gabriel said to her, “Nothing is impossible with God.” (Luke 1:37)
Last week in worship I told you that I switched that phrase around and came up with the statement: “If NOTHING is IMPOSSIBLE with God, then EVERYTHING is a POSSIBILITY with God.” I believe that with all my heart.
Right after the service, Cody Martin, our worship pastor, came to me and said, “I took you seriously and reversed the sentence, and this is what I came up with, “WITH GOD THE IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING.” Wow! Thanks Cody!
Why do we doubt the miraculous can happen, when with God on our side, the impossible is NOTHING?! If God said we are going to spread out to the left and the right, then I’m going to join Him by faith, give sacrificially, and watch God do the miraculous.
Mountain View, do we believe that with God, the impossible is nothing? If so, please join me in praying and giving to Project Home Stretch as we continue to fulfill what God revealed to us two years ago. Like Mary, I believe that there is something conceived within this church by the Spirit of God that is waiting to be birthed…and it will be as we choose to step out in faith in the power of the Spirit and join Him.
Please help us make this happen! You can give through the normal offering boxes all throughout the week during business hours or online using the link below.
