Today, I want to begin a new series entitled “Take Somebody Somewhere.” Take somebody somewhere is the English definition of the word leadership. To lead is to take somebody somewhere. God desires to become your leader after you are saved. He desires to take somebody, you and I, somewhere which is your long-awaited promotion. What people do not realize is that salvation is the first step in your blessing. After you are saved, you now need to be led to a good place. I want you to believe that God is waiting to take you to the place of your … Read More
Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end (Deuteronomy 8:16).
God is testing you so that he can promote you. Sometimes you remain in a place longer than expected because you did not pass the tests that came before the promotion. It is important that you take note of the tests and see things as God wants you to see them.
And thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these … Read More
“To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion” (Proverbs 1:2-4).

Many times, missionaries do not do well because on … Read More
“All the commandments which I command thee this day shall ye observe to do, that ye may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers. And thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no. And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that … Read More
“Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck. For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another” (Psalm 75:5-7).
There is what we call non-verbal communication, things you are saying without saying verbally opening your mouth to say. The Bible is full of examples of such communication styles like speaking with a stiff neck. This form of speaking, with a stiff neck, is pride and you are being delivered from all forms of pride today in … Read More
“Lord, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me. Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah” (Psalm 3:1-2).

You will find that there will be an increase in the number of people that trouble you and rise up against you. You will also have an increased number of people that are talking about you. So today, no matter how many people have … Read More
