How are you doing? Are you surviving or thriving? Are you just barely making it, struggling to hold onto the little you have, or are you walking in the overflowing, abundant blessing? Well, let's talk about our work ethic.

You have a gift, and you are a gift.. You are in possession of unique talents, because you are uniquely you! Don't try to be somebody else, they're all taken!  You are blessed with gifts, talents and abilities that you are responsible to nurture, develop and perfect for the good of the world and for the kingdom. In other words, you need to work on you, and your work!  Meditate on this scripture with me for a bit. Proverbs 22:29 nkjv. "See a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings!" You see, we all have an appointment with greatness. We all have a call to come up higher, to greater degrees of opportunity and spheres of influence, but we risk missing the appointment because for some reason, consciously or otherwise, we choose not to excel in our work, not to do our level best. Why do we behave that way? We get lazy, resentful, impatient. We know that this boss and this job, just do not deserve first-class treatment!  Well, I like to boil things down to the basics, keep it simple as possible. This scripture really means I must always, and only, only and always, do my absolute best. Anything and everything I put my hand to deserves my best effort with my best attitude, at all times, and everywhere. And when I do, I can trust God's promise that I will get noticed!  Now, it would be wrong to suggest that sloppy, lazy, haphazard work doesn't get noticed. It actually DOES get noticed! That notice is often followed by a question and a statement. What's your name? You're fired!  What kind of work is ignored? It's mediocre, average work that does NOT get noticed. Why? Because it's so....average. Almost everybody, the overwhelming majority, is average...that's what makes it ... average. Now, what really gets noticed, grabs the headlines and all the attention is Above Average Extra-Ordinary, go the Extra Mile work. That kind of diligence, that type of excellence, stands out and not only gets noticed, but gets rewarded and promoted! That's what brings you before kings and opens the door to kingdoms for you.  You do have gifts, talents, anointings, and abilities, but they are not your own. They are on loan from God, entrusted to you for HIS purposes.  And you and I are responsible to give God our  absolute, very best. Now, God makes it abundantly clear, that He understands perfectly well what I think of Him and the gifts He's given me. It really is a very simple test. My view of God and His blessings on my life is displayed in the way I treat those around me. When you've done it unto the least of these my brethren, Jesus said, you've done it unto me. Wow! Jesus is saying, I know what you think of me by the way you treat people when you think you can get away with it! I find it absolutely amazing how some people think they are so high and mighty that they can treat other people rudely and mean. Watch how some people with money treat people with none. Watch how others with power treat people who attend them, such as servers at restaurants. You really cannot hide a lack of character can you? You can dress it up in a fancy suit, pile on the makeup and perfume, but we cannot hide the stink of a lousy attitude or mask the lack of Christ-likeness for long.  Listen, the Christian is always, and I mean always on duty.  We are ambassadors of Christ, and He deserves only the best and the highest representation.   Jesus said, the greatest among you, will show it by being your servant.The Bible says, whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might....and whatever you do do it all to the glory of God! That's what excelling in your work means.  So, two simple questions. How have I been treating my work, my gifts, and abilities? And how have I been treating the gift of people in my life. Lord, help me choose to excel, be excellent on both those counts. "See a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings!  I'm sure I'll bump into you on your way to your royal audience, as we keep on living the word!


Your system is perfectly designed to produce the results you are achieving. If you want different results, you need a different system.

What is your system?
Steps You Stubbornly Take Equalling Momentum

A False SYSTEM means you will ... Sell Your Soul To Every Myth

A Mediocre SYSTEM means you will ... Starve Your Self Through Every Misfortune

A Great SYSTEM means you will ... Save Your Self Time, Energy & Money

An Excellent SYSTEM means you will ... Spark Yourself Supernaturally Toward an Extraordinary Mission

A Supernatural SYSTEM means you will ... Serve Your Savior Through Experiencing Miracles

How BIG Is Your Life?

What are the dimensions of your life? What is the size of your influence? Are you a BIG person with BIG plans and BIG dreams serving a BIG God? Or is your life determined more by limitations and boundaries? It is nothing less than a destiny determining revelation the moment a person comes to this startling understanding.

Nobody determines the size of my life but me.

Not my parents, my spouse, not my neighbor or teachers, not any devil and not even God Himself! God has arranged the powers of the universe to agree and cooperate with His Word that we apply to our own lives. You want to be small, unhappy, God says, go ahead. You want to be big and blessed, forgiven and free, happy and holy, God says, good! I've taken care of that. Paid for. Calvary covers every expense of getting you to heaven and bringing enough heaven to earth to make you BIG enough to fill your dreams until you get there.

Every single decision in your life, and I mean every one, will directly determine the size of your life.

Your life has a length ... your choices determine that.
"Will I eat that apple or should I down another donut?"

Your life has a width ... relationships, your choices determine that.
Love and forgiveness or anger and resentment.

Your life has a depth ... intellect, intelligence.
Your choices determine that. Read that book or vegetate in front of the TV.

Your life has a height ... your contact with God.
Your prayers can touch heaven. You cannot touch people for God until you have first touched God for people!

You're not alone ... contact us for encouragement!

Next Level Systems is designed to assist you in making your life BIGGER, LONGER, WIDER, DEEPER & HIGHER!

NEXT LEVEL SYSTEMS – Weekly Launching Pad

To reach your next level you must utilize the power of synergism. Synergy means the reaction or energy created from working together. It is taken from the old Greek word "synergeo", meaning working together or work with.

It is easily illustrated by the force that is multiplied by cooperation. For example, if you had two horses that could pull 800 pounds individually, you would think that if you yoked them together they would be capable of pulling 800 x 2 pounds or 1600 pounds. That would be an insult to the concept of team, because any horse person knows, those two horses together can easily pull more than 2000 pounds. That's the power of synergy.

How can you apply that to your life, marriage, business or ministry? Are you carrying burdens alone, while those around you are doing the same? That's not only a waste of potential energy, it's also a very lonely life.

If you'll notice, this principle is found all through the pages of scripture.

... more on that next week!


Synergy is a concept revealed throughout the Bible.

“If two agree on earth as touching anything, it shall be done”.

“ “If one can put a thousand to flight, two can put 10,000 to flight”. (Notice 10,000 not 2,000!)

There is multiplied energy, power, resources, abilities and ideas to a greater degree than just the sum total brought to the table. There is multiplied power in unity when hearts and heads are brought together. Ideas and anointings are never released in isolation or division. They are multiplied exponentially in an atmosphere of unity. In fact, that Greek word, “sunergeo” is the word translated “work together” in Romans 8:28 and James 2:22. “All things work together for good! …. And … faith was working together with his works. Synergy!  Who are you working with to multiply your harvest? 


While stepping up to your next level, the process of gift discovery and development is vital. I wrote this for a television teaching which has been a help to many

You are aware, aren’t you, that you are carrying gifts, talents and abilities?  And that you have a responsibility  to be using them? Here’s what the Word says.  Romans 12:4-6 NKJV As we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.  Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them.

Today we are talking about operating in our God-given gifts. Let’s take a look under the hood of that gift. Let’s see what kind of engine is driving this gift or ability.  I am going to share with you some diagnostic tools to analyze the gift. So, let’s unwrap it and have a good, honest look.

Seven critical questions to consider regarding your gift.

1)      Has anybody outside your family recognized your gift?  Your mother may believe you have the voice of an angel, but you need to ask the choir director, too.

2)      Is there a market for your gift?  Being the world’s fastest telegraph operator may be fun for you, but there really isn’t a lot of opportunity in that anymore. But, let’s not just think about a financial market.  Ask yourself important questions such as… does this gift meet a need, lift a burden, solve a problem, or bring beauty to the world.

3)      Are you willing to develop the gift through training, coaching and mentoring?  If you have difficulty taking direction, correction or teaching, you are not yet ready to grow in that gift and that inability to learn may be an indicator that it is actually not your gift. You may have heard that Tiger Woods is a champion, but are you aware that he still practices his craft for hours daily, gets advice and makes correction. That’s how giftings grow. That’s how talent multiplies upon itself with compounding interest.  Are you willing to make that kind of investment?

4)      Would you pursue the gift if you had unlimited resources?   Money really clarifies things.  Even imagining money can bring real clarity. What would you do, if you didn’t have to do everything you have to do now?  Would that gift in question still have a pull on your heart, imagination and energies?

5)      Is it a joyful thing to operate in the gift?   Working in your area of gifting is fulfilling and energizing.  Performing outside of your gifting is frustrating and draining.  This one question can tell the whole tale. I’m not suggesting your gift means you will not have to work and work hard, but it’s the kind of work that you smile about, with satisfaction, not the type of work you tend to gripe about with drudgery and complaint.

6)      Do you truly enjoy the accomplishment of others who operate in a high level in that gift?  If your initial response is jealousy or unhealthy competition and you feel threatened instead of shared delight, that is a major warning signal.

7)      Can you use this gift to honor and glorify God?   There is no more important question than this one. Does it bring honor to the Name of Christ?  Is God glorified by this gift? Can I lay this at His Feet and say, “This is for You, Lord.”Let’s be sure about our gifts. Let’s use them.  And let’s give the last word to the Word.

1 Peter 4:10-11 NKJV   As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.   If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.  Pick up your gift and  bless the world!
