• God won’t reveal the entire plan to you, but He will reveal the next step.
• David had experience with God; he had an anointing and a call. When you connect the anointing on your life with the call on your life, you will move mountains. When we try to do it on our own, we will fail.
• Anointing — you don’t have to understand it, but you do need to walk in it.
• Joseph was favored by God and his earthly father, but he was still thrown into the pit.
• Even though you are favored of God, you will still go through things. But, you will go through.
One night Joseph had a dream, and when he told his brothers about it, they hated him more than ever.
— Genesis 37:5 NLT
• Joseph ran from sin, yet he still wound up in prison.
• What the enemy may be trying to kill you with may be the very thing that God may be using to set you free.
• What is going to be your response when God lifts you up? Your response will determine how quick you get there. God is more concerned about what is happening in you than through you.
• Gideon also felt unqualified, but it is about being called and anointed, not qualified.
The angel of the Lord appeared to him and said, “Mighty hero, the Lord is with you!”
— Judges 6:12 NLT
Then the Lord turned to him and said, “Go with the strength you have, and rescue Israel from the Midianites. I am sending you!” “But Lord,” Gideon replied, “how can I rescue Israel? My clan is the weakest in the whole tribe of Manasseh, and I am the least in my entire family!”
— Judges 6:14-15 NLT
• It is not about how much you have, it is about having what God needs for you to have.
• We all have issues, but what you look at determines the outcome.
• The moment we agree with God, that is who we become. If God says you are a champion and you say you are the least, that is where you will stay.
• God can do more in your life that you ever thought possible.
• The enemy will try to convince you that you are the least. Don’t believe it. Believe that you are a child of God and a champion.
Life Lesson: We have God’s word, favor, power and His strength. Nothing is impossible! Go ahead and stretch out!
