From JO’s sermon tonight:

very often we can see potential in other people that they can’t see in themselves.  when you speak vision into them, when you tell them what they can become, you can help set the direction for their life.  our words have the power to push people into their divine destiny.  the reason some people are not living at their full potential is because nobody has ever spoken faith into them

one of our assignments in life is to call out people’s seeds of greatness;  see what they’re good at, then speak vision into them, don’t just think about it, tell them what they can become;  one word of encouragement can be what ignites the greatness on the  inside; when they know you believe in them they’ll rise up with a new confidence, they’ll believe in themselves in a greater way

there are people in your life right now waiting for your blessing, waiting for your encouragement;  God has given you the ability to see what they cannot see in themselves;  take time to speak vision, tell them what they can become

we all need somebody to believe in us more than we believe in ourselves;  if you’ll be that person for somebody else God will make sure that somebody will be it for you

your words have creative power;  when you speak vision that can be the seed God uses to thrust them to a new level

the most rewarding way to live is to ask “how can I be a blessing”;  be on the lookout to be a blessing

God is saying go further, dream bigger

long before you ever got here, before the world ever existed…   (predestination again;  I still really hesitate over this concept)

people rise to the level of our expectations

Matthew 5:14-16 (NIV)

14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

people are already beaten down enough by life, they already feel badly enough about themselves, you don’t have to condemn them, the Enemy is doing it, he’s called the accuser of the brethren, don’t get on his side, stay on God’s side, focus on what they’re doing right, help them to figure out what they’re good at and then call out those seeds of greatness

everybody needs somebody to believe in them

with our words we can help set the direction of a person’s life

most people will not reach their full potential without somebody believing in them;  God is counting on us to call out their seeds of greatness;  the seed you sow will come back to you, God will make sure you rise to a new level
