"Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the Lord blessed him. The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous." Genesis 26: 12-13 (NKJV)
Bible Readings: Genesis 12: 3, John 3: 31, Ephesians 9: 21, Ephesians 2: 6, Deuteronomy 8: 2, Psalms 1:3.
Greatness is not a function of geographical location but spiritual location. Whatever hasn't been allocated, you are not permitted to locate. Until you are positioned, you are not permitted to partake because you can't see it. God has already allocated greatness but the problem is you are not in the position. There is no greatness without movement. The challenge is what side you are moving towards. Until you progress in life, you are not able to measure your greatness. God is ready to make your name great. Until you understand that greatness is achieved by movement, you'll be stuck. You can't attain greatness if you are stuck to your past. Greatness attends to forward movement.
If you want to be great, you need to shift into it. If God wants you to be great you also have to be willing to be great. God doesn't shift you into greatness, you do the shifting yourself by doing certain things. You cannot control what is happening on the ground if you are on it ground you have to shift up. Whenever you start walking in the supernatural, you are already walking in greatness. If you want to succeed, you have to shift from where you are to where you are supposed to be.
Five steps to attaining greatness:
⁃ Obedience: if you want to prosper, you have to be obedient. Stay in the land. Whatever God says you should do, do it! Delayed obedience is disobedience. Stop negotiating with God!
⁃ Separate: you can never move into your greatness if you stay in your past. Change your perspective. Go up! Your attachment cannot get you into greatness.
⁃ Integrity: 'she is not your sister, she is your spouse'. You cannot enter your greatness by lying. You must be able to tell the truth. There is a package of blessings that you can never get until you are complete.
⁃ Sow: don't eat your seed, sow it! No greatness comes without sowing. Your harvest is only answerable to your seed. Anything you give to God is a seed. You can never be great until you become a tither. God is waiting for you to do something then he'll prosper it.
⁃ Shift: your greatness is guaranteed if you just shift your mindset.
For you to shift into greatness, there has to be a force of the supernatural
