Yesterdays blog interaction was breathtaking! I posted a nice little morning message… and then you guys ENHANCED it all day long with a pile of AMAZING additions! Outstanding! Really, I LOVED reading your comments… was very inspired ladies!
Ok… I’m very tired this morning, woke up at a little before 4am, couldn’t go back to sleep… got up and started my morning routine about an hour early… and now I am FEELING it! Grrr! lol! Grrr again! (smile)
I have to tell you guys how excited I am about tonight’s Destiny Family Center GO Outreach!
The results from our first night are reason enough for us to CELEBRATE like crazy people! 12 teams knocked on 87 doors: talked to 73 families: followed up on 46 families: and already, 2 new families are coming to DFC… from the efforts of ONE HOUR!
In addition to these immediate results, we’re VERY hopeful that SEVERAL of the other 46 families we REALLY connected with will come to visit us over the next few weeks! And when PHASE ONE of this outreach finishes up at the end of October, MANY families will have been added to the family of God!
We’ve critiqued our system and made a few necessary adjustments… and TONIGHT @ 6:30pm, we’re Going Out for night two! It’s gonna be SO MUCH FUN… can’t WAIT!
1 Simple Principle 4 Increase in Business, Life, and Ministry
Psalm 126:5-6 Those who PLANT in tears will HARVEST with shouts of joy. They weep as they go to PLANT their SEED, but they sing as they RETURN WITH the HARVEST.
These verses contain a very powerful principle for success in business, life, and ministry! In the world of business, there are three ways to get new business:
- wait for new business (hoping for someone to find out about you)
- buy new business (launching an extravagant personal promotion campaign)
- go out and get the new business (simply, asking lots of people if they want to do business with you)
Most people WAIT for success to HAPPEN FOR THEM. Some people purchase their way to success. Few people ever pull up their sleeves and GO OUT to gather success! Option 1 is for the lazy person. Option 2 is far to costly. Option 3 is the only option for building a PREDICTABLE and DUPLICATABLE harvest machine!
Jesus used option 3 and he taught his followers to do the same!
Mark 16:15 And then he (Jesus) told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone. Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned.
Luke 10:2 These were his instructions to them:“The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.
Matthew 22:9-10 Now go out to the street corners and invite everyone you see.’ So the servants brought in everyone they could find, good and bad alike, and the banquet hall was filled with guests.
So, let us keep on PRAYING… and keep on PLANTING SEEDS… and we will surely RETURN with a HARVEST! Surely, we will! And while so many people in the rest of our world complain about why things are not happening FOR them… you and I will MODEL the profound FRUITFULNESS that results from GOING OUT to bring the harvest in!
I pray that todays blog INSPIRES you to a new level of ACTION! I hope it adds tremendous value to your amazing lives! Love you all… PRAYING for your day to be epic!
