GOING IT ALONE? (2)Numbers 11:17
“I have a dream!” - Martin Luther King Jr. “My lord, I have a cunning plan.” -Baldrick. You may be a visionary, but you will not succeed until you learn to inspire others with your vision and have them take it up for themselves. Top Tip Time: inspiring others requires credibility and conviction. People will only get involved if they can see that you’re fully behind it yourself.
Psychologist Dr. Larry Crabb describes what it’s like when the right message, spoken by the right messenger, is spoken to the right people: ‘A vision we give to others of who and what they could become, has power when it echoes what the spirit has already spoken into their souls.’ That power can convince people to join you in the pursuit of your vision, and greatly enhances your chances of success.
The Bible isn’t what you’d call a maths text book, but here’s an equation to ponder: one person can put a thousand others to flight, but two people can put ten thousand others to flight (Deuteronomy 32:30). What-a-gwan?! The Scriptures teach us the power of working alongside each other. Take a group of people united in one vision, and the anointing of the Lord, and you’ll accomplish more than you ever dreamed possible.
Do you have a vision? Is it one that people should join with, and one that you think God would bless? What would you need to do to make it happen? Ask Him to inspire you, and look for His lead!
