Picking up from yesterday’s post – “example” of walking out a word from God in the Fullness of the God Head: A Call To Ministry.
Big Note: You may have a similar word as someone else, but your circumstances will be unique unto themselves. The thing to remember is that the format of walking out a word from God is basically the same for everyone: format the same, but circumstances unique to each person.
So you were in Church, maybe bible study, in prayer with or without your prayer partner, at the shopping center, driving home from work, or whatever your circumstance may have been; you believed that you received from God a word, directions or if you will, a calling to enter the ministry. Here is one way to walk out that word: remember, the format is the same for any word, but the way to walk it out can be many. Plus, Father is not in a box. It is His vastness, and unlimited resources that make Him the Greater.
The first thing you do when you have a word to bring to pass is to write it down on paper: always write the vision down. I have “bring it to pass” or “walk in the word” format forms available upon request. Next, look around in your space or world of operation to see what you can see. When Jesus fed the multitude, the first thing that he did was looked around to see what He could see. What did he see? He saw 2 fish and five loaves, he saw recommendations from his Apostles (bff), he saw dry places, he saw the opportunity to just do nothing, and let them fend for themselves. When you look around, you will see all different opportunities, options, and possibilities in your world that may answer or advance your word, but how do you correctly move forward or walk that word forward? God will always supply your need. It is up to Him to make available the substance that you need to complete your walk.
Next, write down on the same paper, anything that you can put your hands on to fulfill your word from those opportunities, options, and possibilities in your world. There were many things that Jesus could choose from as I mentioned above, but he will only select the things that had the substance to bring to pass that which He hoped for. You must only select from those things in your world that have the substance to bring to pass that which you hope for. Jesus chose the two fish, five loaves because it was the only substance that allowed the apostles to feed the people as the word directed. What substance do you see in your world that will allow you to bring to pass the word “a call to ministry?” You want to select five opportunities to move forward in your walk. These things are not there by chance, but rather by creation. God created what you needed, and planted them in your garden, or world for your selecting: always select those things that give life to the word that you are bringing to pass.
Here are five “possible” examples of substance that could be in your world created from your unique set of circumstances: 1)salvation, 2)church home, 3)pastor, 4)first sermon, and 5) seminary. Someone else with the same word, could have a totally different set of opportunities. It depends again on the unique set of circumstances in their world that will be different from the unique set of circumstances created in your world. So let’s work with these 5 just for the sake of completing the word “a call to ministry.”
- Salvation is the first substance chosen to start this example – say this example has as a lost person recently inspired by an act of love that changed his heart, and mind to hear the voice of God that he’s been running from for years. He now believes that God has a calling on him. His first step in walking out this word would be to finally accept in his heart Christ as his lord and savior. This first step would allow new doors to be open by the Holy Ghost for him to keep walking to the next level. Now, as this person shows patience in his new conversion, the times and seasons under the authority of Father will continue to line the bigger picture up to walk in the word: “a call to ministry.”
- Church Home is the next substance chosen from his world – This same person has accepted Christ, and is believing more than ever that he has a call to the ministry on his life. He would look in his world again to see what he can see to continue his walk in the word, “a call to ministry”. This time his choice of substance will not include salvation. He just walked that out, and is now saved. His choice of Faith substance may now look like this: 1) Church home, 2)Pastor, 3)first sermon, 4)seminary, and 5)On-line study. Remember, every time you move forward in your walk, update your resources because creation is changing your circumstance each time you move closer to bringing your word to pass. He selects his church home so that he can grow, and develop. He serves the church, and develops in his faith while more doors are opened by the Holy Ghost. The Father level of the God Head continues to line up the times, and the seasons as patience is shown.
- Talking to Pastor is the next substance that this person choses from his world – He has a Church home now, so his choice of substance will not include Church Home. He is now really walking out the word in the fullness of the God Head. His new choices could now look like this in his world: 1)talk to Pastor, 2)first sermon, 3) seminary, 4)On-line study, 5) Teach Sunday School. So he talks to the Pastor about what he believes God is calling him to do. Here is another key move on the part of the Holy Ghost. How will the power of God move on the Pastor? What will the Pastor be led to say to him at this time? Over in the authority of Father where the times and season reveal themselves, what is the plan that the word, and the Holy Ghost have been working toward to complete? Let’s say the Pastor says to go to seminary first. Let’s say that the Pastor says prepare to do your first sermon. This shows how you progress in walking in the word in the fullness of the God Head.
If the pastor says go to seminary first, will this individual enter into the rest of Father with patience? Or will he try to negotiate an on-line study, and first sermon at the same time? These decisions can slow us up, take us around in circles, or take us out of timing. When you get a move by the Holy Ghost on the Pastor to say seminary, what is this saying about preparation, character, and timing? Think about it!
I will show more examples on up coming post.
