For hundreds of years, people in the Old World were convinced that all swans were white, a conclusion completely confirmed by centuries of observation. One day, someone recorded the first sighting of a black swan; one event forever changed our knowledge of swans. The same is true in the supernatural life of a believer in Christ. We are one event away from experiencing the impossible.
In this message, Stephen reconciles our need for routine and adventure. Adopting a lifestyle of black swan living is a cooperative effort between our Lord and ourselves. In this way, miracles become normal and Jesus' words take on new relevance.
Truly, truly, I say to you, if you ask the Father for anything in My name, He will give it to you (John 16:23b NASB).
