Planned spontaneity – I know, this sounds like an oxymoron, but it in certain areas of life it is essential to leave space to be open to the leading of the Holy Spirit. These can be simple things on a personal level – like deliberately taking a different route on your way to work, striking up a conversation with a local barista who is making your morning coffee, or helping someone trying to negotiate some stairs with a pram. It is in these moments when you step out of routine that God often uses you to move in someone’s life. This may be no more difficult than being courteous – showing people they matter to you.
Plan to hear from God. You are His best asset to reach a lost world!
