THE FEAR OF GREATNESS

Brace yourself, I am blogging in a whole different direction.

They say that when small men cast large shadows, you know the sun is about to set. Similarly, because the daylight of decency is about to set, small men like Bezos, Soros, Zuckerberg, Dorsey, and Obama are also casting large shadows. Sorry if that offends you, but they are all small men.

“Surely men of low degree are a vapor, men of high degree are a lie; if they are weighed in the balances, they are altogether lighter than vapor.” –Psalm 62:9

The only men who are smaller, are the even smaller men who work for them. Biden and Fauci immediately leap to mind.

But it is not these pipsqueaks who are driving me crazy. And it is not even their outsized power that vexes me. What truly makes me angry, and sad, is that all we need to stop them are real American heroes.

In fact, there is nothing evil going on in America that could not be stopped by men and women of daring. Seneca said, “It is not because the times are dangerous that men do not dare, it is because men do not dare that the times are dangerous.”

Instead of Christian leaders who dare, we have a pandemic of self-pity and timidity. American preachers used to be reformers and agents of change. Today, we have performers who have agents. They will take no stand that might cost them tithing members, bookings or product sales.

Never has a nation had so many ministers who are doing so much that does not matter, for so few. Never has the arsenal of the weapons of the Kingdom of God been left to gather cobwebs for so long. Never has fear been such a guiding force in the choices of preachers.

We never used to scare this easily. The government would not dare lockdown the churches of the preachers we used to have. Never have so many with such advanced degrees been so remedial in their grasp of what is urgent.

What is wrong with us? We are crippled by the fear of greatness. And we have confused popularity with greatness. A large church is not greatness. Being a mascot for the rich and famous is not greatness. Satan laughs at our idea of success. He does not respect sermons that merely entertain a tame audience. He only respects and fears disciples—men and women sent from God, anointed by God with conviction and authority who are ready to obey the marching orders of the Holy Spirit.

The Bible clearly reveals that we serve an awesome God. His awesomeness has transformed weak men and women into world-changers. America can once again have lions in the pulpits. We can own the roar that will stem the tide of immorality.

Open your heart to the truth! Every vessel of God is, right now, standing at a fork in the road. On the right is the path of greatness. On the left is a wide and convenient path. On your right all you see is sacrifice, warfare, and intense resistance. To your left is a downward path. To your right is a steep and treacherous climb, leading upward. But you know that that climb means you are going to a new level—your next level.

So then, what is the secret? The secret to greatness is pain. The absolute truth about you and greatness is in this phrase: When the pain of being average becomes more intense than your fear of greatness, you will go to your next level. Greatness.

Quit flirting with Greatness!

 

Quit Flirting with Greatness.

 

Twenty years from now, you will not regret the things you have done as much as the things  you did not do.  Twenty years from now you will see that most of your fears were unfounded about the future, and that there was time, money, and opportunity to do something big.  It is time to see that you are flirting with greatness and that is a dangerous game!

 

The fact is that we are either going to be a people of big plans or big excuses.  Will we be ready for this last great worldwide harvest of souls or will we allow years of shortages, rejection and fear to distract us?  Will we be found missing in action during the greatest display of miracles and revival in history?

There is a giant vision that is trying to find life within you right now.  You have the power to literally breathe it into existence. I know this is true because I know that right now God is scanning the world for helpers.  In this dark and evil day a loving God is preparing to display the grand finale of the human story.  It could be a season of harvest that could overwhelm the world for a decade maybe longer!

Who will be the irresistible Gospel mouthpieces of this final surge?  Who will be the powerful business people of God that will transfer the wealth of the wicked into the arsenal of the righteous?  Who are the impending Apostles of Faith, Wisdom and Love that will build great works and great armies for this global miracle?  Who are the intercessors that will graduate to the holiest place and tear down strongholds over nations? Who are the prophets that will roam the earth granting signs and wonders even as they declare righteousness? 

I cannot shake the conviction that someone reading this right now is experiencing the power of the Holy Spirit and it is convicting them of compromise.  They know that they have chosen a limited life based on the wounds of their past and the threats of the future.  They know that they were born for something much bigger than the puny plans that presently control their life.

For now, we do not need to know where the money, the plan or the opportunity will come from to make our vision a reality.  What we must know right now is that we are not crippled by our culture, poisoned with grief, or blinded by adversity.  None of these things can stop us unless we let them. 

Let me take you back to time in my life in Berkeley when I saw a smaller version of what is happening now.  Rioters had thrown rocks through our window nearly hitting a 6 month old baby in a crib.  This was after nearly two years of meetings that were interrupted by rioters and a constant shortage of funds.

I quit! The next morning I disbanded the staff and sent them all home.  I shut down Resurrection City, packed my belongings in a car and headed out of Berkeley never to return.  I arrived at Telegraph Avenue and by divine timing the light turned red.  Hundreds of students were heading to class right in front of my car.  These were the souls I was called to and I was leaving because of a big excuse.  My heart broke for these lost souls and I had to turn around and give it one last try.  That last try launched 8 more years of ministry that saw thousands saved and healed and a great revival on that infamous campus.

Don’t make small, affordable plans but prepare to launch out in the deep for a great catch.   WE ARE THE PEOPLE OF GOD IN A DARK TIME AND THERE IS ONLY ONE THING ON OUR MIND. IT IS A THOUGHT THAT PERMEATES OUR BEING, FORGES OUR PLANS AND OCCUPIES US CONTINUALLY…“IN THE LAST DAYS THE PEOPLE WHO KNOW THEIR GOD WILL BE STRONG AND CARRY OUT GREAT EXPLOITS.”  This is what matters.  This is the only fact that counts.  This is the only reality that has a right to influence us and guide our plans.
