Relationship and Being Proven

Have you ever noticed that there is a tendency in many people to want to advance beyond others, to advance in the exercise of authority whether they have been approved or not?  In 2Sam.15, David’s son Absalom pushed for and expected to be able to take authority in areas where he hadn’t been proven. We find the scriptural principle of the process of being proven in 1Tim.3:10.  Biblical principal tends to follow this pattern:  (1) Process while walking out relationship;  (2) Process leads to being proven;  (3)  Process and being proven leads to a track record that follows the principal of Lk.16:10– “faithful in little can be trusted in much”.  We are praying you discover daily that you are staying in relationship long enough to be proven so you can be trusted with much.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.)

Releasing What You Have

Just because you do not communicate or give at the same level or in the same manner as other people, does not mean that you are to hold back what God has for you to release for others. In Jn.6:9 the little boy did not hold back his little lunch of loaves and fishes just because it wasn’t sufficient in the eyes of some. He didn’t withdraw saying, “This won’t do any good.” He released it and Jesus took the little and made it sufficient for many.  (Lk.16:10a, Amp) Jesus: “He who is faithful in a very little [thing] is faithful also in much…”  We are praying you discover daily that you are not holding back but offering your best for God’s highest good.   (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24 hours/day.

Process And Being Proven

process
You are welcome to choose the title you prefer:  “What To Do When You Are More Spiritual Than Your Pastor”  or  “What To Do When You Know More Than Your Pastor Knows”  or  “Observations on Absolom.”  Absolom pushed for and expected to be able to take authority in areas where he hadn’t been proven (1Tim.3:10).  But biblical principal tends to follow this pattern:  (1) Process while walking out relationship;  (2) Process leads to being proven;  (3)  Process and being proven leads to a track record that follows the principal of Lk.16:10– “faithful in little can be trusted in much”.

Little Made Sufficient

Just because we do not deliver or give at the same level or in the same manner as someone else, does not mean that we hold back what God has for us to release. The little boy did not hold back his little lunch of loaves and fishes just because it wasn’t sufficient in the eyes of some. He didn’t withdraw saying, “This won’t do any good.” He released it and Jesus took the little and made it sufficient for many.

 “He who is faithful in a very little [thing] is faithful also in much…” (Lk.16:10a, Amp)


HOW DO WE LEARN TO OPERATE IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD?

HOW DO WE LEARN TO OPERATE IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD?

Listed here are some factors to consider when desiring to operate in kingly authority: (1) search out and learn principles such as the one found in Luke 16. There is more to come in the Kingdom crownand we are presently (2) wrestling with the trials and proving grounds that will allow us the power and authority we so desperately need for ourselves and others. (3) Issues of continual defeat in our lives prevent and hold back the evidence of the Kingdom of God. Therefore, we must aggressively take hold of the Kingdom where we have been tenaciously clinging to the weaknesses that set us up for continual defeat.  (4) It is plainly stated that if the man in Lk 16:10-12 cannot be trusted with money, he will most definitely not be trusted with power and authority that gets done what money falls short of doing. Quality decisions and relationship over time engender trust. (5) Ongoing relationship to other people in the Kingdom will bring us into both knowledge and experience that will enable us to take part in the dynamic of the Kingdom.
