Making High Impact! High Influence!

High Impact! High Influence!! Believe these are two key words for us in this century. Made possible by the anointing of the Holy Spirit for in this century. It is your finest moment. Here are four steps to get you started.

1. Realize Your Potential. "A poor man's field may produce abundant food, but injustice sweeps it away." Pro. 13:23. Your life, like seed, is filled with unrealized potential. The moment Jesus saw Simon, He recognized the potential in him. Jn.1: 42. There is something God made you to be and to do that no one else can be or do. Potential is that which could or might be but does not exist yet. It is possibility lying dormant until recognized and released. That seed must be planted in fertile soil and nurtured in order to realize its full potential. You can choose to realize your potential or waste it. "He who works his land will have abundant food, but he who chases fantasies lacks judgement." Pro. 12:11. You are never too young or never too old to realize your potential and to do something about it.

2. Reach for Your Opportunity. "Be very careful, then, how you live- not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil!. Ep. 5: 15-16. God gives us an abundance of opportunity every day. Do you recognize them and reach out for them? People who succeed in life are those who recognize and reach out for every opportunity that comes their way. As someone said, " Your greatest opportunities are cleverly disguised as insurmountable problems." Within every obstacle is the "seed of an equivalent advance". You must look for it and reach out for it. Turn your obstacles into opportunities. This was what Joseph, the son of Jacob, did. "The principle of opportunity says that life is a series of obstacles, and these obstacles hold the key to your greatest opportunities if you only discipline yourself to see opportunities every where."

John Haggai. .Make the most of every opportunity today. It may not knock on your door tomorrow.

3. Rekindle Your Passion. "I delight to sit in his shade, and his fruit is sweet to my taste " Song of Solomon 2. 3. Another word for passion is "enthusiasm'. Walter Chrysler once said, "I feel sorry for the person who can't get genuinely excited about his work. Not only will he never be satisfied, but he will never achieve any thing worth while."

A husband and wife were driving along in their pick-up truck. They've been married for years. The wife says, "Honey, what happened to the spa had? Why don't you sit by me when we go or drive any more?" The husband responds, "You're the one sitting over by the door. Who moved?" At one time the relationship you had with God was characterized by intimacy and passion. But today you may feel the "spark" is missing or that He has moved "over by the door." It's time to rekindle your passion. And so it is with our spiritual.life, family, ministry, work, revival, dreams or vision. We could be serving but service without passion is slavery.

Computer entrepreneur Charles Wang explains, "If you have it in your heart. we can put what you need in your head." We fail not because we don't know how or what to do but because we don't want success intensely enough. Therefore we don't want to pay the price, we don't like the sacrifice and, so we don't put in the required discipline and effort to succeed.
"Enthusiasm and perseverance can make an average person superior, while indifference and lethargy can make a superior person average ". -William A. Ward.

4. Resolve to be Available. "Your servant will go and fight him..." 1 Sam. 17:32. The Lord looks for your availability and not for your ability. Every person that was used by the Lord in the last century to Impact and influence their world were men and women who were available to Him. Most of them had no natural ability and were on the "most unlikely persons" list. The story of how God used the simple, inexperienced shepherd boy David to slay a giant, is a classic example of how God can use you if you make yourself available to Him. The Lord by passed the "able" servants on King Saul's team for the "available "son of Jesse.

This is not the time to worry, It is time to worship His Majesty.
This is not time to be bitter, it is time to strive to be better.
This is not the time to stay back, It is time to come back to your First Love and the Fellowship of His Church.
This is not the time to "sit around", It is time to take ground. It is your God-given moment to be a High Impact! High Influence kind of person.

Be Encouraged.
