“God is in the business of strategically positioning us in the right place at the right time. A sense of destiny is our birthright as followers of Christ. God is awfully good at getting us where He wants us to go. But hereâ€™s the catch: The right place often seems like the wrong place, and the right time often seems like the wrong time.” “Spiritual maturity is seeing and seizing God-ordained opportunities.” “If you were to always act in your greatest self-interest, you would always obey God.”The other theme he developed well was the reasons why we don’t embrace the risky things that God has for us. This is obviously the other side of the same coin but it is just as important for us to be challenged on those things that we assume and never question again. Here are a few quotes from the book in this line of thought:
“If you study the teachings of Christ, youâ€™ll realize that learning wasnâ€™t his primary goal. His primary goal was unlearning. He was reverse engineering religious minds.” “Half of spiritual growth is learning what we donâ€™t know. The other half is unlearning what we do know. And it is the failure to unlearn irrational fears and misconceptions that keeps us from becoming who God wants us to be.” “A relationship with God will complicate your life, but it will complicate your life in ways it should be complicated. Sin will complicate your life in ways that it shouldnâ€™t be complicated. One way or the other, life is complicated.”
