GOING TO HAVE A WONDERFUL FUTURE
ACTION keeps you under the anointing so that you are as a new,
sharp threshing instrument. Knowing that the enemy’s KEY
INTENTION is to STOP your action, you now have military
intelligence as to his plans. Your main focus NOW should be on
developing a spirit of excellence in your action. That’s what
University of Excellence is about.
There are SEVEN
(7) things you need to cultivate a spirit of
Spend time with
God. Pray and fast for: A fresh vision; and, A prophetic,
"bulldog" endurance and perseverance. You can't be a "pansy" and
you can't be a quitter. Be a
warrior and remember: If you don't quit, you will win! (But
if you quit, you can't win!)
You need to put
God's program FIRST in life. He will show you when you need to
spend time for family, for recreation, and for fellowship. At
times, He may have you spend LOTS of time on family, recreation,
and fellowship. But don't try to replace God's Kingdom as your top
priority. "You seek first the
kingdom of God, and all things will be added unto you."
will give you real liberty. You need to be accountable to: Jesus,
the Great Pastor; and, Others, in ministry.
You need to
rest one day a week. This is God's plan and is necessary for your
overall long-term health and blessing. At times, He may lead you to
take extended periods of rest. Always obey Him in these matters. He
knows what is best for you . . . and for those to whom you
minister. You can't minister effectively if you're worn out or
burnt out! "For thus says the
LORD God, the Holy One of Israel, In returning and rest you will be
saved; in quietness and confidence will be your strength."
(Isaiah 30:15) Honoring and
keeping the Sabbath will also enable you to appropriate the rewards
of a spirit of EXCELLENCE: delight, dominion, and desires
granted. (Isaiah 58:13-14)
6. A HEART
Samuel said, “The LORD has sought
him a man after his own heart,” describing King David. (1
Samuel 13:14) After being anointed, and successful as a king and
military leader - the champion of the people - King David sinned
greatly. Even in the midst of his sin, he had a heart toward God,
which caused him to repent. He paid dearly for his sin, but even in
the midst of his sin, he loved God and was
In all his
public official conduct he acted according to the Divine mind, and
fulfilled the will of his Maker: thus was he a man after God's own
heart. In reference to his private or personal moral conduct, the
word is never used.
So what was his
problem? Why did David sin? The answer is: He didn’t FEAR God.
He loved God, but He didn’t fear
Him! We need to be not only morally reverent towards God,
but also to have a sense of alarm that will keep us from walking
off the path of righteousness. We
need to think ahead of time about the consequences of our sin and
transgression. Our Father in Heaven loves us too much to let
us get away with such behavior. There is not much preaching on
holiness anymore. We need to LOVE GOD and to FEAR GOD; then
we will have a heart for God.
rulership of the Kingdom, in his official conduct, he fulfilled the
will of God; however, in his private life and personal conduct he
failed miserably - but then repented. This brings to light THREE
very important things to consider:
Your actions can bring
reproach on God, yourself, your family, your friends, your nation,
and your cause.
Your actions can give
your enemies occasion to slander you and also mock the God you are
supposed to be serving.
Your actions can bring severe judgment upon you
and your family.
In the heat of temptation you need to consider
these things. Are you willing to pay the price? Do you LOVE
God and your family enough to protect them from the results of your
sin? Do you FEAR God enough to prohibit you from doing the thing(s)
you are considering?
moral uprightness are the KEY INDICATORS of the God shaped life.
The deeper your character, the
greater your impact! Many things that we question in life,
even small things, are a TEST of our integrity. God is constantly
testing us to see if we can be entrusted with greater giftings,
talents, skills, and responsibilities.
Integrity is a
two edged sword. It is an instrument of blessing:
For ourselves -
We must live with ourselves in all good conscience. “For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things. Beloved if our heart condemn us not, then we have confidence toward God.” (1 John 3:20-21) This assures us of answered prayer and provision. “And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.” (Verse 22)
For others -
Our families, our friends, our parishioners, our communities . . . our progeny . . . all are impacted by our integrity. The quality of our life is a direct antecedent of the same. The degree of EXCELLENCE of your life and ministry predetermines your future . . . and many times, the future of those to whom you minister and love.
LIVE A LIFE OF EXCELLENCE!
