How to take ACTION so you can do the things you
want to do in life.
How to fulfill your destiny with excellence!
SUCCESS THRU ACTION SERIES – PART 2
There was a movie several years ago titled, Stuck On
You, which starred Matt Damon and Cher. It was about two
brothers who were Siamese twins. Finally, the brothers
realized they needed to be separated (physically by surgery) in
order to do what each brother wanted to fulfill in his
reached this decision when one brother asked the other, "What
is that thing you want to do MOST in the world?" And then
he challenged his brother with this admonition: "You have to
me recommend eight (8) steps to take in order to help get
you out of your desensitized spirituality and into the
vortex of God's anointing:
1. As much as possible, stop all activity for a while,
even business or ministry.
2. Get loose, relax, and enjoy God. NOTE: Many
times you will be tempted to start a new business, project,
ministry, or outreach right away (while relaxing in your time of
rest). That would be like shooting yourself in the foot while
you're walking to the hospital. If God has given you NEW ideas or
directives, take skeletal notes (or even copious notes if you feel
the necessity). Then store the notes for the future time of
implementing the project(s). You will find that, as you're relaxing
in the sunshine of God's love, an abundance of ideas will come to
3. Take time to dream. At The University of
Excellence, of which I am President and Regent, we discuss
the fact that Albert Einstein, perhaps the greatest mathematician
and physicist of the last century, had two (2) major
A childlike questioning character (like a four or five-year-old); and,
An intellectual capacity to think beyond.
At the U of E, I ask the students questions like -
How long has it been since you've asked your Heavenly Father some childlike questions?”
What can you do to reach every nation and tribe for Christ?
What is the KEY thing you can do that will impact nations the most?
What are new ways to market the Good News?
What are some secrets of the universe that nobody knows?
Have you asked God what He likes about you the most?
I also ask them, “How long has it been since you” -
Discarded all your ideas about how to minister?
Researched new trends and cultural evolutionary movements?
Asked a lost person how they would reach the world for Christ?
Studied the ants?
Studied seeds, climatology, and weather patterns?
4. Know who you are. Read through the epistles;
learn once again WHO you are in Christ and WHAT you have in Christ.
You have to come to the place, once again, where you KNOW the
calling and destiny that has been designed for you before the
foundation of the world. True holiness, and also true Biblical
prosperity, is to KNOW that you're working "hand-in-hand" with God
to shake nations for Messiah Jesus.
5. Meditate. Find the scriptures (rhema) that
speak to you concerning your calling and destiny and dwell on them.
Speak them to yourself. See yourself doing the things involved with
your calling and destiny. Image them upon the screen of your
mind. See the places and the activities and then THANK God for
their fulfillment. Receive them by faith. SEE, SPEAK, THANK,
6. Change your environment (and maybe your
friends). This is why God sent his servants into different
areas, sometimes as a result of hard-times. It's a lot easier
if you do it for yourself, with the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Imitational faith (the copying of ministry styles used by others)
results not only in lack of creativity, but also inbreeding
in the Body of Christ.
yourself and be original! Don't be afraid to be different.
Study the lifestyles of God's servants through the centuries (in
the Bible, and throughout Christian church history). Study Apostle

7. Re-evaluate your goals. Which ones have been
accomplished? Are there any goals that you feel you should scrap
for now, or permanently? Which ones are not accomplished yet? Why
are they not accomplished? Where are you in your time line, or
schedule, for their fulfillment?
action will you take to implement them in a timely fashion? Are
there any new goals or projects God wants you to undertake? If so,
do they fit into the general scheme of your other goals? Are they
completely separate from your other goals?
8. Make your plans fit into God's plans. The
GREATEST ADVICE I can give you concerning your plans is as
IF YOUR PLANS FIT INTO GOD'S PLANS …
YOU WILL HAVE GOD'S FAITH …
AND GOD'S FAITH ALWAYS WORKS!
out to God and tell Him you want to be used greatly by Him; that
you don't want to come home to Heaven until you've fulfilled,
with excellence, your calling and your destiny. And remember
the words of King Solomon: "He that fears God will come forth of
are to fear God … NOT men, demons, or anything else. The enemy
knows if he can get you to fear anyone or anything other than God,
he can cancel your fear of God and thereby void the operation of
wisdom in your life (at least temporarily until you become aware of
You have to shut off the ideas of fear
and replace them with IDEAS OF FAITH. Use visual thoughts
when you have thoughts of concern. You will eliminate most of
Satan’s attacks on your mind. You will also destroy Satanic
activity in its tracks! When you have thoughts of fear, replace
them with VISUAL THOUGHTS. So when you have thoughts of fear -
about your family, your possessions, your relationships, your
ministry, your health - replace them with VISUAL THOUGHTS. See the
Holy Angels ministering to, blessing and guarding your family, your
possessions, your health, and your ministry.
By visualizing your thoughts, you can even add emphasis
(power and potency) to them by decreeing them. Use the Holy
Angels in your thoughts. See them helping you. See the BLOOD of
Christ over everything God has given you by birth, adoption, and
we turn back God cannot fight for us. Why? Because, when we turn
our back, we are disobeying our leading and our Leader. We are not
will not see MIRACLES unless through ACTION we put ourselves
in a position in which God can work for us. God works in the area
of the impossible. What is impossible with men is possible with
You may not need direction. You may just need to go forward = ACTION.
