Todays message…

Prepare Yourself For Something Big!

In his book, Finding Favor With The King, Best Selling Author Tommy Tenney wrote: Favor is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.

When preparation meets opportunity!

Do you think that perhaps in the very near future, your ordinary life might intersect with the opportunity of your lifetime?

I believe that mine is! My S-GPS (Spiritual Global Positioning System) is telling me that an intersection is just ahead!

There are moments in life, when you and I are permitted to turn off the ordinary path and turn onto the highway of extraordinary potential.

Turn off the ordinary path,


Onto the highway of extraordinary potential!

Opportune moments don’t last forever. Life is pushing us forward… violently pushing us forward. We cannot stop to contemplate.

Either we are prepared to seize THIS opportunity,


We stay on the ordinary path until the NEXT one.

Last Thursday night, at the DFC prayer meeting, I had a powerful conversation with God about preparation.

I heard Him say to me, “I am calling you to prepare yourself. You don’t have to worry about how I am going to use you in the days ahead. Your job is simple: Just like I told Joshua, sanctify yourself (separate yourself, prepare yourself), because tomorrow the LORD is going to do wonders among you.(Joshua 3:5)”

I had been thinking about the coming radio and television interviews and speaking on larger platforms… and I had been fearing the potential embarrassment of not being strong enough for the promotion.

And God said to me, “I am the one who is responsible for doing the wonders! You only need to sanctify yourself (separate yourself, prepare yourself).”

So I decided to take God’s message seriously and I’ve been preparing like I’m going for a gold medal in the Olympic Games! I’ve been reading books, watching videos, praying and worshiping, serving at a higher level, etc, etc. My mind is expanding, my spirit is reviving, positive things are beginning to happen all around me!

“Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win! All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing.I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified.” (1Corinthians 9:24-27 NLT)

Prepare yourself for something big! Whether or not you perceive it, the next intersection is just ahead!


Either we are prepared to seize THIS opportunity,


We stay on the ordinary path until the NEXT one.

Act on this blog with a tremendous degree of urgency. Prepare yourself what’s ahead! Then, when it comes, you can turn off the ordinary path and turn onto the highway of extraordinary potential.

I hope this message adds great value to your life. With much love…

Dream Big, Live Bold, and Make A Difference!

Chuck Balsamo

  1. Such an exciting post! As I read this, I tried to think of what the extraordinary path in my life might be…of course, all I could think of was the job frontier and hopefully getting a full time teaching position…but then I thought that must be wrong and the extraordinary path must be something more spiritual-like…

    And then the thoughts of “You wouldn’t know the extraordinary path if it bit you on the butt” came over me and the doubt crept in…I’m sure that’s the enemy trying to get a foothold though.

    • I was just having a conversation with another lady about this very thing. We don’t really need all of the miniscule details before we “prepare”… we just have to follow our heart’s heightened desire for new information and new commitments.
