Ministry?

Triumphant Victorious Reminders
Inspired by the Holy Spirit
Written by: Teresa Criswell

"Now to God, Who will do the exceedingly, abundantly above all that we could ever hope, ask or ever dare to imagine according to the power that is vibrantly living within us."
~ Ephesians 3:20 ~

As I was completing my much needed chore list of  "to do's", in that time of pondering, I was "seeing" a young man and a young woman. In seeing them, I just had that knowing they did not know one another - nor had I ever met them.

As I saw each one walking, they were on the path people told them to take. They were told the only thing that would matter to God is if they walked on the path of "ministry".

In that moment of envisioning this, it was as though I could hear the conversations from when they were young - that "being in the ministry" was their calling. Yet as I saw them on their individual path of destiny - I was surprised to notice and recognize that they were on a path not from God.  Now it definitely looked it and they were even successful - yet in the process they were empty and void as for way too long they listened to the mere earthly voices of people who had good intentions but had no idea the intentional purpose of God nor those they are to later encounter with God's crazy, immeasurable love.

Meanwhile the yearning of their hearts are to be marketplace leaders. 

In this very moment as my fingers dance across the keyboard, I am getting that 'unction' to declare,  "The destiny from God within you is the Holy Spirit whispering for you to awaken, arise, stand, walk and run with God's intentionality to utilize the influence and charisma that God has blessed within you."

Young man, young woman, wherever you are, you are marketplace leaders. You are ministers of wealth to whom God has appointed with the gift of giving.  The purpose is to be those who reveal God's glory by giving a hand up, influencing the many in the realm of the business world and more than anything being an asset not a liability.

Today's triumphant, victorious reminder is to remember that God's grace is what empowers us to rise above what we could ever hope or dare to imagine and do the exceedingly, abundantly more than we could ever hope, ask of ever imagine according to the power of the Holy Spirit that is within us!
