Gen 1:26 says ” And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. ” Most people believe this to be true, but are we selling ourselves short? Maybe a better question is ” how come people created from such an awesome mold aren’t accomplishing more”? Shouldn’t believers have more of an impact on a world they have been given dominion over? Where are the faith based Warren Buffet’s, Elon Musk’s, and Steve Jobs?
The majority of us lack the knowledge, strategy, understanding, focus, and structure to breakthrough. We don’t lack talent or opportunity, but we do lack effective guides. I didn’t start seeing success as a leader until I started studying leaders who were getting positive results. I apply this strategy to everything I do now. It’s simple, you don’t ask a plumber for medical advice. You ask a doctor. When we start getting better counsel we will start getting better results! If you get the coaching of an expert your will exceed your own expectations in ways you could never imagine. Think how Jesus changed Peter’s life.
The goal is to unlock the secrets and strategies needed, to improve our lives and those who follow us. Each week we are going to cover topics that will help us get those God given dreams out of our head and into reality, so we can have life to the full. This week we are going to start with instruction and expectation.
- John 14:12 ” Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father ” This is about modeling your habits after the leader. I started getting up at 4am after listening to Eric Thomas, he explained that I need to be first to the spot. What are you adding to your skillset to do the great work?
- Matthew 7:24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” We talking about practice? Yep we talking about practice! Standing at the alter or sitting in the pew is not enough. You have to make God’s wisdom a practice, and then practices your practices. You are what you consistently do, your result come from what you do consistently
- Proverbs 8:10-11 ” Choose my instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her. ” Do the right thing because it’s right and consistent with your values. Money will come to stay if you don’t take shortcuts
THE BLESSING: God created great people for the purpose of running, leading, and impacting great kingdoms. A kingdom can be families, companies, communities, cities, states, or countries because they all need good leadership to prosper. Your enemy is using God’s word to be the leaders in our homes, communities, companies, and world. This has us frustrated and with no say in how we are governed, therefore we don’t have life to the full.
I am going to do my very best to teach the skills, strategies, and mindset necessary for you to have the dominion God gave you at birth.
