We all want to be successful in life. But how do we get there? Christians especially want to know how to step into their God-ordained destiny. Prophet Joe Joe Dawson offers some help.
"I want to teach you how to use your leverage. God has given every single person leverage on how to be successful in life, successful in marriage and parenting, in ministry, in business, but most of all, to be successful in the kingdom of God," Dawson says on the Kingdom Mindset podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network. "You know, it would be a shame for somebody to live their life and never fulfill the kingdom assignment that God has. ...You know, there's a lot of people who were born, and they're just wasting their life. I see so many people who, at best, they're just trying to make it into heaven. ... They've missed the whole entire meaning of Christianity."
Dawson adds, "And I want to encourage you on how to use your leverage. Now, the word 'leverage' means 'to use something, to maximize an advantage.'
"To be successful in life, you need an advantage. God has given everybody an advantage. Now, the cool thing is, He wants us all to prosper in different areas," Dawson says. "What are you gifted at? What is your talent? What is your ability? Everybody has a gift. And when you use your gift, you will get an advantage in life."
Pointing to Isaiah 45:2, Dawson explains, "It says, 'I will march out in front of you and level every single obstacle. I will shatter into pieces bronze doors and slash through iron bars for you.' What the Lord is saying right here is, 'I'm going to go out in front of you, and I'm going to level everything that is coming against you.'"
