In working with people over the last twenty years the number #1 question I receive is ” John how do I discover what I am here for? ” When we’re left to our own thoughts – we wonder what life is all about. The trend I have seen in the secular world is go out and CREATE your Life. It makes sense in the natural don’t you think? However when you become a KINGDOM Citizen you must operate from a Higher plane of THOUGHT. I struggled for many years listening to what others said I would be good at and it ultimately resulted in me CRASHING!
Here is the ANSWER I discovered… I am here to Make an IMPACT on the KINGDOM!
“Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours; Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours; And ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s” (I Corinthians 3:21-23).According to Paul’s writing , he said, “ALL THINGS are yours.” Notice what he didn’t say, “All spiritual things are yours.” No! He said, “All things,” period! From the surface to the core of this planet. All things include cars, houses, buildings, real estate, jewelry, precious metal, clothes, land, and even money. “All things” means everything without exception.This is Paul writing not only to the Church at Corinth, but to every person in the family of God. You could personalize this and say, “All things are mine.” Does this mean that you just go out and through greed or avarice grab a bunch of stuff and say, “. . .This is mine, gimmie, it belongs to me?” Absolutely not. It means that if there is anything good about it to help enhance our lives or advance the Kingdom, we have a right to it. Even though you have a right to it, until you can SEE IT (NOT with your Eyes), you are not entitled to possess it. In other words, the things that are yours must be more than just INFORMATION but it must be a REVELATION. Remember what God told Abraham? “. . . Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever” (Genesis 13:14-15).
This happened with Joshua, he could SEE their victory over Jericho even though its walls were “very great” and naturally impossible to penetrate. God said, “…See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour” (Joshua 6:2). Until you see it, you are not entitled to possess it. In the New Testament blind Bartimaeus could see in his mind his sight restored and Jesus said, “…Go thy way; thy faith (proof) has made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight . . .” (Mark 10:52). Remember this; whatever is revealed to you can be restored to you!
