Greatness

Three revelations of greatness

By Rev Celestine Benson

"I see Him, but not now; I behold Him, but not near; a star shall come out of Jacob; a scepter shall rise out of Israel, and batter the brow of Moab, and destroy all the sons of tumult." Numbers 24: 17 (NKJV)

Bible Readings: Numbers 24: 17-19, Isaiah 9, Matthew 2: 2, Romans 8: 18-19, Revelation 12: 1, Isaiah 60: 1-2, Genesis 37: 9, Matthew 2: 11, Psalms 110: 2, Genesis 49: 10, Psalms 89: 20, Psalms 89: 34, Nehemiah 9: 24-25, Nehemiah 9: 35, 2 Samuel 5.

You are just not an ordinary person, God created you and pact greatness within you. I am important to God. When God removes the veil that is covering your greatness you can never be denied. When God sees you, you can never be hidden. 

The following are the signs: 

1. You are a star. The reason why you are suffering what you are suffering is because the devil can see that you are a star. You star is your destiny. Every star is meant to manifest. Everyone has a hidden star in it. Every greatness is attached to your star. Generations are waiting for the manifestation of your star. Star attracts. Your star befits glory. Glory means beautify. Beautify is attractive. Your star will arise and shine. Every star is born to dominate.

2. A sceptre shall arise from you. You are a ruler. Authority have been given to you. As a ruler, you need the oil for you to be respected. Every ruler have a mandate to crush. God has given you rulership to do with things as you want. You have the right to determine your destiny.

 

Prayers:

• My star begin to shine

• Every waster of my star, be wasted

• Oh Lord, every word you have spoken to me right before I was born, let it come to pass.

Commission to increase

By Pastor Andrew Bawa

"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 26: 1, Genesis 22: 12-18, John 6: 8-12, 2 Corinthians 9: 10.

Increase is to become greater or larger, to make great, to multiply. Commission is permission, to give licence, to be instructed, to be commanded.

 You have been commissioned, designed, decorated, permitted, instructed to increase! You are increasing! Anytime God wants to bless, lift someone, he organizes an opportunity/ challenge for the increase to take place. When God want to set you up, he organize a dream that only you can interpret. When God wants to make you gallantly great, he organizes people to forget you. No matter the situation you are in, it's part of God's plan to get you to where you should be. 

God in the mist of you, is mighty. God is organizing me! The way people are laughing at you and mocking you, it's part of the organization. All things are working together for your good. There are four things you have to do; Stay with him, surrender to him, submit to him and sow to him
The only side you submit to God is what he increases. Whatever you want God to increase, you have to surrender to God first. Whatever you want to increase has to bring glory to God. 

God is the chief organizer! 

 

Shifting into greatness

By Pastor Andrew Bawa

"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 

 

Greatness 3

by Pastor Andrew Bawa

“For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall – 2 Samuel 22:30

Bible Reading: Psalms 23:5, 1 Samuel 16:13-18

Anointing enables you to do what you have been gifted for. The oil of favour brings you into the presence of God. Once you are gifted, all you need is the anointing.

The day Samuel anointed David, that day David stepped into his greatness. The oil was poured on David and he never went back to his rearing sheep. Anointing sets you on the path of greatness.

Prayer Points

  • I remove whatever will make your anointing not work in my life.
  • Father, as I am anointed, let your grace be released on me and launch me into my greatness

Greatness 2

By Pastor Andrew Bawa

 

"The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work." - 1 John 3:8

Bible Reading: Genesis 11:30-31, Genesis 12:1-2, Luke 10:41, 1 Chronicles 17:19

To manifest is to show forth, to enlighten and to illuminate. Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil. That was His purpose and it was manifest on the cross.

Jesus knew His purpose, He knew His assignment. The secret to your greatness lies in the discovery of your assignment. There is an assignment wired specifically for you. Do you know your assignment?

Why are you here?

When you know your assignment, you will be willing to leave everything for it. Your assignment is your purpose. To be great, you must know your assignment. You must know it and you must let it intoxicate you.

No great person is normal. Great people never fit the status quo. Keep away from people that try to belittle your ambitions. There is nothing wrong with being misunderstood. Several great people were misunderstood. To be great is to be misunderstood. The more people understand you, the more limited you are.

You have the passcode for the future of this generation. You carry something, and for that reason, you will not die until you fulfil that purpose.

You are wired for greatness. Whether you get there or not is not up to God, it is up to you. Anytime there is a vision, there will always be a provision from God.

Do you have a vision? do you know your purpose? do you know your assignment?

Prayer Points

  • Father, I refuse to die a mediocre!
  • Lord, I refuse to die in Haran, I am going to my Canaan!
  • Lord, do great things in my life because I am on the path of greatness
  • Father, in my life, in the assignment you gave me, reveal/manifest your greatness now!
  • I am more than this. I am greater than this. I destroy anything stopping me from stepping into my destiny!
  • Lord, in the name of Jesus, I give my lingering assignment an expiry date!
  • Father, Give me a fresh vision of my assignment!
  • Lord, reveal my NEXT NOW!

The Pathway to Greatness

By Pastor Andrew Bawa

"David went to Nob, to Ahimelek the priest. Ahimelek trembled when he met him, and asked, “Why are you alone? Why is no one with you?” David answered Ahimelek the priest, “The king sent me on a mission and said to me, ‘No one is to know anything about the mission I am sending you on.’ As for my men, I have told them to meet me at a certain place.” - 1 Samuel 21:1-2

Bible Reading: 2 Samuel 23:1,8,39; Psalms 69:5-9

There is no great person in life without a scar. Every great person has a story. Your true test of greatness is determined by what you are able to survive from.

To be great, you have to associate with greatness. When you know who you are, you are wired for greatness. You will not settle for less.

Greatness has nothing to do with fame. There is a greatness that is set by heavenly standards. Anyone that seeks to be great must first be humble.

Everything you need to be great is already within you. If it is not in you, it cannot come out. If you do not recognize that God wants you to be great, you will remain mediocre. Great people do not settle for mediocrity.

The more your enemies, the greater you are. The size of your enemies determines how great you are. Anybody that is going to be great will be weird even amongst family members.

You are destined for greatness. Don't settle for less.
