What I’m about to describe to you is the pathway that you must take at some time during the next two to three years, in order to reach the impossible miracle that God is about to give you. I want to talk to you about the specifics that each one of you needs to overcome to reach God’s full potential for you.
In this first of many future articles, I want to deal with the impossible leap that God will require you to make to reach your full potential in Him. For example, King Saul was born into the tribe of Benjamin, which was the least amongst his brethren. Even though he was physically taller than every other Israelite, he still was untrained and uneducated in the art of kingship. But God promoted him anyway.
Then an amazing thing happened. When Saul failed in his task of being king, God turned to even a lesser man, with an even more unknown family. His appearance was also ruddy. Definitely not the outward appearance of one called to be a king. Once again, David was untrained and unskilled in the art of kingship. But God makes him king anyway. These two stories show us that the only qualification God requires is His personal selection of us.
But the spirit of the world will tell you this kind of thinking is ridiculous. That’s why you must understand how adamantly that spirit is going to want to convince you that you are unqualified. For example, there is a current movie being released in the theaters called “Anonymous”. This fictional movie tries to rewrite history and prove, with absolutely no facts behind it, that Shakespeare didn’t write the plays that bare his name. Mind you, the filmmakers didn’t take into account that the person they claim really wrote the films died before the last five of Shakespeare’s plays were written.
Why would Hollywood spend so much money to try to support a premise that has no historical basis? No one in the last 300 years has ever questioned Shakespeare’s authorship. It’s only the current intellectual crowd that has propounded such a theory. Their premise is that it is impossible for a man who did not go to college to have such a comprehensive wit of the English language. They maintain that such genius can only come through higher educational systems. Did they conveniently forget that Charles Dickens and Jane Austin were also literary English geniuses who never had a college education?
The spirit of the world has one purpose in mind: To stop you from making the dramatic leap from poverty to great wealth. Something I’ve learned, from hanging around many wealthy people, is that a lot of them don’t seem to be any smarter than some poor people I know. It’s the favor of God upon their lives that has made the difference. There is a purpose for me saying all of this. You need to wipe out of your mind any thought that is telling you that you need to get an education, or some other form of formal training, before you can do God’s will. There is nothing that is more untrue.
Most of the training you can receive formally from any type of organization (be it the church, a Christian college, or trusted mentorship) would be better replaced by the Holy Spirit Himself. Jesus said that the Holy Spirit would lead you and guide you into all truth. You must realize that it’s time for you to make that leap, just like King Saul and King David did. They made the dramatic leap from pauper to king on just the premise of the anointing.
God’s call is like a seed that is planted in the ground. A seed already has all the blueprints and instructions, in its DNA, for the complete mature growth of the plant. In the same way, when God places a call in you, He includes with it the entire blueprint of your life, along with all of the instructions given to you by the Holy Spirit that you will need to complete the task. If God wants you to run a business, a nation, large holdings of real estate, or just a church’s nursery, He fully prepared you when He gave you the call.
The one thing that you must do is verify that the call is genuine. The Lord told us to do this when He said that out of the mouth of two or three witnesses let every word be established. One thing I must mention is, if what God is calling you to do appears impossible, it’s probably a good sign that it is from God. Just verify it to make sure, and then have fun. Take The Impossible Leap Into A Miracle.
