This is part seven of our series Dream Bigger. In 2018 we are celebrating 75 years since King's Church International was founded and it is a time to dream bigger dreams for what God is going to do.
Part 7 of the series is New Influence, and you can listen to the podcast or read the summary below.
Recognise that growth is promised, and natural, and understand what we must do so that we enter into those promises.
- Growth is promised when we receive vision from God
- Growth is promised when we remain close to God
- Growth is promised when we recognise and follow godly leadership
- Growth is promised when we all play our part to build up the church
- Growth is promised when we focus on being disciples and disciple-makers.
As a church, we have already seen tremendous growth this year, but we are believing for and expecting more. There may be areas in your life where you feel stagnant. Before you experience growth you need to understand the promises you’ve been given. Read Genesis 1:28, Exodus 1:6-7, Acts 2:41, Isaiah 9:7 and see the promises and examples of what natural spiritual growth looks like.
In your ministry, you may feel like you have tried and failed. But in John 12:24 it says "Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds." Wherever or whenever you have planted seeds in the past, believe that God will bring these back to life and be ready to reap a big harvest!
I will see miraculous growth in all areas of my life.
Thank you God for the promises you have given me. Thank you that you are always working in me and around me. Help me to be ready for the miraculous growth I am about to see in my life. Amen
