11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.Acts 4:11
12 And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought.Mark 9:12
When God SET’s you, it doesn’t matter what it looks like on the surface. It may look like you are set at naught (set at the Zero Mark) ONLY if you are comparing yourself to someone else.
When God sets you there is no other fingerprint like yours on the planet.
Like Bamboo, which may show little to no growth in the first few years, (where it may seem like you are down for the count,) your growth has a set time (because you are set and marked by God) and it will have a sudden growth.
41 And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all.Mark 6
If I keep my eyes on the size of what’s in my hands, I will forever be discouraged, discontented and at the extreme, depressed.
Five loaves and two fish, my seem small in the scheme of things, but we MUST always remember, in the midst of our “little thing” we are partnered with a BIG God.
We have been given authority to bless the “little thing” in our hand by speaking words of life over it.
It was intended for us to singularly execute the assignment that is upon our life. There are “disciples” that are in position to help us (many of whom we have never met).
Last but not least, it is important to not that our role is more so to facilitate than to execute. This facilitation requires order, knowing and staking your claim in your lane (not trying to be a COI – Chief of Everything).
What emotion is showing up for you as you read this post?
Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.
There is nothing wrong with Business Planning, however, it can NEVER assume or replace the role of our Divine plan.
In marketing, the gurus will say, “it is important to identify your niche, develop a strategy to pursue your niche.” That may be a fact, but the truth of the matter is, when our Divine Plan is in play, instead of pursuing (seeking after) our niche, the pursued, now becomes, the seeker.
The seeker then comes to our light (aka order) along with “kings,” who in the business plan will be refereed to under the financial strategy section.
Disclaimer: Am I saying, “do not write a business plan? “Absolutely Not.”
What I am saying is it is more important that we SET our eyes on Entropy (the change in state from order to disorder) than Economy.
Philippians 1:66being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
Can one be confident even though he lacks self confidence? Great question. My answer is Absolutely, positively, YES!
Here is why?
Have you ever searched on websites such as www.YouTube.com or www.WikiHow.com to find our the steps to solve a problem? You discover the steps, solve the problem, and, with your proud self, you let everyone know you did not have to call a specialist to solve your problem.
Well, if WikiHow and YouTube can provide you that level of confidence, how much more the God of the universe (who knows our problems before we can even call on him) can demonstrate to us?
If you find yourself frustrated, hitting the proverbial brick wall on solving your problem, maybe it’s time to press ReSET and seek the one who is the author and finisher of our confidence.
