Encouragement Nugget - There is a Price
“ENCOURAGEMENT NUGGET – THERE IS A PRICE!”
Chosen by God!
"When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required."(Luke 12:48b NLT)
When you ask God to enlarge your territory the requirements change dramatically. It is not, nor should it be, life as usual. Everything changes – how you spend your time, who you interact with, where you go, what you read, and so much more.
Your focus must be razor sharp on doing what God wants in the way He wants you to do it. No compromise. Your mindset must be how will this honor God? How will this bring Him glory – in all you think, say, and do?
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew [and] approved of you [as My chosen instrument], and before you were born I separated and set you apart, consecrating you; [and] I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5 AMPC)
There is a cost to carrying the anointing of God which is how your territory, your influence is enlarged. Not everyone can carry it because not everyone is willing to live a set apart consecrated life. Before you say yes, make sure you fully understand what consecrated means.
Consecrated - separated from a common to a sacred use; devoted or dedicated to the service and worship of God (Noah Webster 1823 Dictionary)
The Hebrew word for consecrated is qâdash which means – to be clean, keep, prepare, proclaim, purify, sanctify, wholly (Strong's H6942)
"Great gifts mean great responsibilities; greater gifts, greater responsibilities!" (Luke 12:48b MSG)
