The scoop is this: God wants every one of us to succeed. He has placed unique gifts, talents, and passions in each one of us, and this becomes our starting point. My passion was to solve an unsolvable problem: I couldn’t hear God’s voice and it ticked me off. What issue ticks you off?
Once you solve the issue, you have created a gift many others will want. They will be thrilled to receive this gift from you if you let them know you have it available and are more than willing to share it with them in an easy, affordable way.
Then I complained that I wished I was more like someone else who had gifts I didn’t have. God told me I was uniquely gifted, and I should celebrate and focus on using the gifts He had given me, as they provided the tools I needed to bless the world. No one else had the unique gifts I had, so “be happy,” and TEAM UP with those who had the additional gifts I needed to be successful. Surround myself with 5-fold counsel from others who had heart motivations and gifts that supplement and complement mine.
The team of counselors is to include people with the heart motivations of an apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, and teacher. When surrounded and receiving counsel from people with these five heart motivations, the synergy they provide will bring the project to maturity and let me succeed (Eph. 4:7-13).
Wow, I don’t need to be everything! I just need to be who I am and team up with those who complement me, and ask for and receive their input and counsel. Well, that sure was simpler. And guess what? It works. Both Communion with God Ministries and Christian Leadership University touch over 100 nations in the world. And God has accomplished this through a farmer boy who planned on milking cows all his life. Yup, God’s plans for our lives are about 100 times bigger than our plans for our lives!
The rule is that our brains and hearts are designed to work in synergy with others. That demands humility, meekness, love, mercy, and a vision that draws us forward until we win.
As we fulfill amazing feats, we, the body of Christ, are discipling all nations with the goodness, creativity, and love of Almighty God.
So tune in this month and learn these skills, use them, and together we will make a difference in the world!
