In a Pit

I started a new read yesterday (sent to me by a close friend), In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy in-a-pitDay by Mark Batterson.

A couple of quotes from the early pages:

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 here’s the catch: The right place often seems like the wrong place, and the right time often seems like the wrong time. (p12)

Too often our prayers revolve around asking God to reduce the odds in our lives.  We want everything in our favor.  But maybe God wants to stack the odds against us so we can experience a miracle of divine proportions.  Maybe faith is trusting God no matter how impossible the odds are.  Maybe our impossible situations are opportunities to experience a new dimension of God’s glory. (p24)
