IF YOU GIVE 10,000 MEMBERS TO A PASTOR WITH CAPACITY FOR 500, HE WILL DRIVE THEM AWAY
DON’T EVER BEHAVE FOR WHERE YOU ARE, BEHAVE FOR WHERE YOU WANT TO REACH.
PASTORS, YOUR SPIRITUAL CAPACITY BEGINS TO ENLARGE WHEN YOU BEGIN TO THINK IN TERMS OF PASTORING YOUR GENERATION AND NOT JUST A FEW MEMBERS OF A CONGREGATION
IF YOU GIVE 10,000 MEMBERS TO A PASTOR WHO HAS THE CAPACITY TO PASTOR 500 PEOPLE, HE WILL SCATTER THE PEOPLE WITH THIS PREACHING UNTIL THEY DROP FROM 10,000 TO 500 TO MEET HIM AT HIS LEVEL
VISION SERVICES YOUR CHARACTER AND CAPACITY TO BECOME WHAT GOD WANTS YOU TO BECOME and WHAT YOU’RE EXPECTING TO BECOME
– Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche on “THE NECESSITY AND PROFIT OF VISION – Part 2” Power Communion Service/Glory is Risen Fast Day 10 Glory Dome, Abuja || Part C.
Don’t ever behave for where you are, behave for where you are going, where you want to reach.
My wife says to me everytime I got a sharp suit, sharp shoe, I always wear it the same day. I don’t have Christmas dress and I stand out and I just try to look as best as possible.
One day earlier on, she said to me, Why do you try to look like that? And I said to her, Maybe I will meet the president of somewhere and I don’t want to regret that if I had known, I would have dressed better.
She’s nodding her head, one day we went out and she just went casually and I just went as usual in a diplomatic way. And I think we met some people, I don’t know what happened and she said, Okay, I have learnt. If I knew I would have behaved the way you behaved.
To be ready for every urgency. I want to step on any stage, if they say carry the microphone, I won’t wish I had dressed well. I want to be ready for any urgency.
Smith Wigglesworth said, Don’t get ready, live ready. Apply what I am saying to every area of your life. When David appeared on that battlefield, he didn’t get ready, he lived ready. “What can be done for the man that taketh down this Philistine, I am ready for him.”
– somebody say a loud Amen.
My wife steps into my study room and sees the whole place filled with aromatic fragrance, says, “where are you going tonight that you still sprayed perfume. I can perceive the fragrance of perfume everywhere. Are you going out somewhere?” I say, “no oh, this is for normal sitting” (To his wife), you have seen very interesting things oh. Hallelujah.
It affects character, it affects capacity. If you’re not thinking that, “all I’m trusting God for is to have a car, have a house and have travel visa”, if that is what you’re thinking about, then there’s a way your mind works.
But if you’re thinking like the head of a multinational that budgets in billions of dollars or naira, there’s a way your mind begins to get upgraded, there’s a way you begin to work and research, there’s a way you begin to enlarge capacity and something inside you begins to enlarge to be able such that when you see $1million, you don’t run mad. You’re equal to the task because you have developed to that level.
Pastor of Church, there’s a way in which your spiritual capacity begins to enlarge when you begin to think in terms of pastoring your generation, not just pastoring a few members of a congregation. Am I communicating? There is a capacity enlargement, there’s something it does to you because capacity determines possibility.
If you give a man one billion naira who only has the capacity of managing one million naira, that man will spend that one billion until it will remain one million in his hands, he won’t know what to do with it. If he’s in the village, he will begin to marry more wives.
But if you give a man one million naira, who has the capacity, he has an enlarged vision and capacity to manage a billion, that one million will grow until it becomes a billion in his hand because his capacity is enlarged by his vision.
You give a Pastor who has the capacity to pastor 500 people, 10,000 members, he will scatter the people with this preaching, with his life, with his everything until people drop from 10,000 to 500 to meet him at his level because that is the level he can handle.
Meanwhile, you gave 500 members to somebody whose capacity is 10,000, he will grow that capacity until it reaches the 10,000 because his capacity has been enlarged to accommodate that.
Hear me, when we were in area one and the sanctuary was just filled and I began to think of overflow, many things began to come to my mind on the spot. “We are going to have a lot of cars.
Alright, so if they are going to come, where’s the road for them to come? If they’re going to come, are there enough toilet facilities? Alright, what about children facility because they will come with their children”.
Everything began to just explode on the spot, the though or this and that, “if I’m going to reach there, if I’m going to accommodate so and so people”, it began to explode on the spot. If your thought was small, those things won’t come up.
That’s the essence of vision, all of a sudden, your character is adjusting to match with the vision, your capacity is enlarging, your thought pattern is enlarging, your mentality is enlarging, everything is enlarging to ensure that you’re able to accommodate that vision when it arrives and you’re not taken by surprise and your life does not collapse because you got a vision.
– somebody say a loud Amen.
You must ensure that your vision brings you out of darkness, turns your life into an illumination, cause you to have optimism, enthusiasm and positivism, bring speed to your life, no more delay, no more indecision, procrastination and stagnation and then your character and your capacity begin to change. So this is how to behave, “what do I want to become?” Behave accordingly, don’t wait until you become it, behave it now.
To become it, you must behave it. Am I communicating? Then, your capacity begins to enlarge. “If I’m looking forward to having 500 to a thousand employees, how do I prepare for it? How am I qualified for it?” It might make you to take some courses, do some trainings that prepares you for what you’re expecting. That is what vision does to you because you don’t service a car that is not functional.
Vision services your character and capacity to become what God wants you to become and to become what you’re expecting to become.
– lift up your hands and your voices and appreciate God for what you have received tonight.
