How many folks have planned themselves into a career filled with blandness and mediocrity when God has called them to greatness — greatness that lies dormant and unfulfilled because of fear and the criticism of others?

It’s easy to be mediocre — even a dead fish will move in the direction of the current. Greatness requires swimming upstream and overcoming resistance. God has called us to be a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people (1 Peter 2:9). Peculiar means casting aside the ordinary!

So many graves are filled with unrealized potential. The purpose of a thing can only be found in the mind of the creator. Without purpose, you CANNOT receive an assignment. Without walking in and completing your assignment, you WILL NOT enter into your destiny.

We as men and women of God (I’m speaking of the Ephesians 4 “five-fold”) have an obligation to EQUIP the saints to do the work of the Kingdom. In other words, folks must learn to grow beyond their physical boundaries and limitations. If we fail to do this, we hobble the saints and hinder their potential.

In Genesis 1:26-28, God gave man DOMINION. Jesus came to restore this Dominion through the re-establishment of his Kingdom, that is, His divine Government. It’s time to walk in the authority given to us by the Lord Jesus and appropriate His promises, that we may manifest His power to all corners of the earth.
