Mark Batterson, “Don’t Take ‘Yes’ for an Answer” (#Exponential 2010)

Mark Batterson of National Community Church kicked off our main sessions together with some great words from the story of Balaam in Numbers 22:18-35.

Angel of the Lord to Balaam: “I have come to block your way…” (22:32)

“God is far more concerned with who you’re becoming than with where you’re going”

Sometimes God gets in the way and we, like Balaam with his donkey, get upset with the things in the way when it’s really God getting in the way

National Community back-story:

  • Failure in Chicago
  • Meeting in school – school closed
  • Went to theatre in Union Station

“If God hadn’t gotten in the way, we might never see where He wants us to go.”
