Divine Success

Jonathan’s courage inspired those who
are hiding because they’re afraid. When we obtain supernatural success we come
into alignment with our anointed assignment. And I want to say this: I think
sometimes we have to narrow our focus to actually get success. You know part of the problem with some of you
people, you’re just too good at everything. You’re just too good, you have too many choices.
I don’t know if you know this in marketing but you know we had a retail store for
years, we had three retail stores, auto parts stores, and we had you know chemicals
and all those kind of things that you sell. And we went to this marketing
strategy meeting one time, spent a day in a kind of a teaching
series for marketing and they were talking about actually displays, they were
teaching us how to display our merchandise. And this is what they said: if
you have three different kinds of penetrating oil, like wd-40,
you’ll sell like whatever, they had a percentage. If you have 20 brands, you
think you’re going to sell more, it actually is cut to one third of the
sales. When you give people more choices they see so many choices they do nothing. Costco’s figured that out, they have
two brands of everything and you buy one thing and you have
three lifetime’s worth of it. You bought it for a third of what you’d
pay somewhere else, but you had to buy like three lifetimes, you know. Oh you
went to Costco, you got 48 things of toothpaste. Yeah I got them for 50% off. (Laughter) Sometimes we have to narrow our focus to
fulfill our call and sometimes the challenge in our life is we’re just good
at too many things. It’s like I don’t know if I should do this, or whether I
should do that, or I should do this. And it’s like you know I’m good at
baseball, football, basketball, you know track, I’m good at everything,
I’ll just go out for everything. You’d probably be good at nothing. I’m
not saying that’s the greatest example but it’s like pick one thing or
two and do it with all your might. And find somebody that agrees with
you. In Matthew 18:19 Jesus said this, “If two or three of you
agree on earth,” on the whole earth! If you can find two people on the whole earth,
Jesus knows, if you find two or three agree on earth, about anything – He
didn’t say in the church, He said on earth. On the whole stinkin’ earth, if you can find
three people on the earth who agree with you, ask and it shall be done for you by
My Father who is in heaven. Jesus is like, that’ll limit what they get done. (Laughter) And we’re trying to find whole thousand people churches to get together and
agree. Jesus is like, yeah that’s a good plan why don’t you try, see if you can find
three people in your friend circle… …who will agree with you. There is
something about the power of agreement but there is something also powerful
about the power of division. A kingdom divided against itself won’t stand. And when
you’re trying to move in God you don’t need 500 people, you just need
someone. This is my proposal: I’d proposed that Jonathan didn’t wake up
the army, joking aside, because he knew there was no way that they would
agree with his plan. So he gets one guy who kind of works for him and says, hey I
got this idea, and the guy says, this whatever is in your heart I’m with you.
I’d like to suggest that we’re trying to take this unity of the
spirit idea to a place that is not even in the Bible. And I’m like once you
get the Philistines running people will join you.

👍one friend that will come into agreement with you like: Jonathan and David and Jonathan and his armour bearer.amen

Speaking directly to me. I've been struggling with this big time. Please pray for me to narrow my focus, receive clarity, and take action.
