Pastor Steven FurtickPastor Perry NobleAll of these thought patterns and ideas are bogus! They are the tools of the enemy to discourage, create fear, divide the kingdom and destroy vision. As leaders if we get caught in this place, we are at risk of loosing the very thing God has called us to do.
Their success and the formula for it is simple.....IT'S OBEDIENCE! Without obedience to what God is telling you and me, we cannot succeed!
"Jesus sent his twelve harvest hands out with this charge: Go to the lost, confused people right here in the neighborhood. Tell them that the kingdom is here. Bring health to the sick. Raise the dead. Touch the untouchables. Kick out the demons. You have been treated generously, so live generously. "Don't think you have to put on a fund-raising campaign before you start. You don't need a lot of equipment. You are the equipment, and all you need to keep that going is three meals a day........ "Stay alert. This is hazardous work I'm assigning you. You're going to be like sheep running through a wolf pack, so don't call attention to yourselves. Be as cunning as a snake, inoffensive as a dove. "Don't be naive. Some people will impugn your motives, others will smear your reputation-just because you believe in me." Matthew 10:5-10, 16-17 MSG
Focus on being obedient to the very things God is calling you to do!
