FAITH, “WORTH CONSIDERING” 10/29/19 (Across my desk this morning.)
|“…God…calls those things which do not exist as though they did.” (Romans 4:17, NKJV)|
|Call Out Seeds of Greatness|
Very often, we see potential in other people that they haven’t see in themselves. When you speak vision into them, when you tell them what they can become, you can help set the direction for their life. Your words have the power to push people into their divine destiny. I believe that the reason some people are not living at their full potential is because no one has ever spoken faith into them. No one has taken the time to say, “Hey, you’re great at this. You have a gift here. You’re going to do something amazing!” I believe that one of our assignments in life is to call out the seeds of greatness in other people. Look around at who God has placed in your life. They’re not there by accident. Take time to study them. See what they’re good at. What are their gifts? What do they excel at? Don’t just think about it, speak vision into them. Tell them what they can become. Let your encouragement ignite the greatness on the inside. Help them rise up in confidence so they can be all God has called them to be!
|A Prayer for Today|
|“Father, thank You for the people You’ve placed in my life. I choose to be faithful, to speak life and call forth the greatness in them. Thank You for bringing me to new levels as I help others rise higher, too, in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
I once had a well known prophet of God pronounce in a large gathering, way back 40 years ago that I was to write a book. And he publically said that I would not like the title to the book, “My Apostle To The Islands.” I did not get any other witnesses and according to Scripture, “Out of the mouth of 2 or 3 witnesses is a thing confirmed.” I did not write that book. It would have been deadly for me had I done so at the time. It is the fruit that determines the tree. Jesus taught, “By their fruit, ye shall know them.” and not by their publicity. In Proverbs there is a verse that gives a balance to all this. “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Proverbs 18:21″ James also teaches us to be very careful as to what we say as our words can be life or death to some one else:
