Prophecy: The Lord Is Opening Doors for Kingdom-Minded Businesses

This prophecy is by Dr. Steve Greene. He is the publisher and executive vice president–Media Group, Charisma Media

While writing my Greenelines blog early this morning, I stopped to answer an email and was nudged to open a new writing window and began to type this fresh word for several readers today. I don’t know for whom, but I believe the specificity of the word will call you out. Your spirit will bear witness.

“As you grow closer to Me, I will draw nearer to your business. If I am Lord of your life, I will be Lord of your business. I long for your business to honour Me as I rain down upon it.

How do we glorify God

The increase that I will give you is coming. This season of growth will be like none other you have experienced. New doors will open to a new people. You will think new thoughts and do a fresh work. Others have not done this work. Behold! I give you a new path. You’ve been walking the path I intended for others. This new path is your path.

Know that I will be with you as you move with the gifts and specific knowledge I have given to you.

Do not look to the left or to the right, but along the path I will direct. Set your eyes upon Me, and I will do what I have promised.

Do not try to be like others or join others along their paths. This is a new thing that I intend for you. The path is blessed. Your gifts will be multiplied as you lead others along this way. This is a path of business that I have birthed in you. I will bless others through you as you travel this path. Fear not, for I am saying to you on this day, in this way, that I have prepared hearts and minds to receive you and this new work.

My words will not surprise you today. Lead the people I have given to you with this fresh anointing. I am in this work. I will bless many through you. This is the word of the Lord.”

There is no doubt God will bless you as you draw nearer to Him, so if you spend time in His word and in prayer you can expect improvement not only in your business but your life as a whole.

Reasons to Leap from Natural to Supernatural Leadership

Here are the key differences with three compelling reasons to take the leap into supernatural leadership and build a Kingdom business.

Too Much Natural Leadership?

Natural adj: formulated by human reason alone rather than revelation; occurring in conformity with the ordinary course of nature; not marvellous or supernatural; operating in the physical world as opposed to the spiritual world

Supernatural adj: unable to be explained by explained by laws of nature; of or relating to an order or existence beyond the visible, observable universe & especially of or relating to God

 

It is so easy – even tempting – to lead from the natural man. We live in a natural body, work in a natural work surrounded by millions of others who only attempt to leverage and grow their natural skills. So, we fall prey to succumbing to the trap of natural leadership – just like so many others.

You may be leaning too much on your natural leadership if you currently struggle with:

  • what to do next
  • how to get there—wherever “there” is
  • slugging through the status quo of doing the same things over and over
  • desiring different, better results but never seeming to breakthrough
  • which leadership guru/expert to follow
  • solving the same problems over and over
  • motivating yourself or your team
  • fear of losing your business, home, or lifestyle

If any of these describe you, then I suggest it is time for you take the leap into supernatural leadership.

3 Supernatural Reasons to Take the Leap

Here are three big reasons to take the leap.

#1: From Education to Revelation

“But as it is written: ‘Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.’ But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:9-10

Natural leadership focuses on the wisdom of man. From secular business books, magazines, and endless conferences and blogs, it is easy to over-educate our natural heads with worldly “wisdom.”

Supernatural leadership focuses not upon any person’s persuasive words and spiritual-sounding insights, but on the infallible, perfect wisdom of God.

#2: From Miss-led to Spirit-led

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God.” Romans 8:14

As I detail in my book OUA, believers in business can be easily miss-led. From being head-led, expert-led, opportunity-led, money-led and more, natural leaders (like I was for decades) are easily misled by the latest and greatest stuff.

Supernatural leaders purpose in their hearts to only and always be led by the Holy Spirit who will never mislead you. He will always guide you into all truth and help you position yourself and your business for — yes — supernatural growth and impact.

#4: Human powered to God powered

“I can of Myself do nothing.” John 5:30

“Then Jesus said to them, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and that I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things.” John 8:28

“And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:4-5

Even Jesus could not operate as a natural leader. Think about that for a minute! Jesus gave up his heavenly throne and power (Philippians 2:5-8) to operate as a flesh man supernaturally led and employed by the Holy Spirit.

Jesus walked as human who gave God permission to supercharge his natural gifts & to release more supernatural leadership gifts. So can you. Imagine the potential impact!

Get Ready to Take the Leap

Let’s revisit the natural leadership list from above. If you were to take the leap into supernatural leadership, would God through His Spirit tell you how to:

  • know what to do next?
  • get “there” and exactly where “there” is?
  • breakthrough your status quo?
  • achieve different, better results?
  • follow the one perfect leadership guru/expert (Jesus)?
  • solve every problem once and for all?
  • motivate yourself & your team?
  • overcome your fear of losing your business, home, or lifestyle?

Of course, He would – and so much more!

As we take this journey together, my focus will be to guide and equip you on how to take the leap into a God-directed, Jesus-gifted, Holy Spirit-empowered supernatural future for yourself and your business.

Who’s ready to take the leap?

HOW TO HEAR GOD’S PLAN FOR YOUR BUSINESS

The KEY WORD in this presentation is POSITIONING.

  1. Am I positioned correctly, to be able to hear from God.
  2. Do I take the time to be still to hear from Him.
  3. Have I fixed my eyes on the vision He has given me.
  4. Did I write down (use a journal) the details (formulate a plan) which came from Him.
  5. Did I implement the plan.
