What if I could show you a simple act of faith that could cause your productivity to soar by 100 to 1,000 times more? God is glorified in our productivity, make your plans to become more productive and set some BIG FAITH GOALS for the New Year.
Herein Is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
Stop and think for a moment about all the dreams you used to have. What stopped you from dreaming?
You were ordained by God to bring forth massive productivity, and Jesus promised that whatsoever you ask the Father in His Name, he may give it to you
You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.
It seems that God is watching for our fruit so He can answer our prayers. Someone may say that’s legalistic. But remember, we can only achieve fruit by abiding in Christ. That’s intimacy, not legalism. We have a role to play in our harvest, our growth, and our increase.
In fact, the word “fruitfulness” in the Hebrew language (Old Testament) literally means “increase and growth.” And fruit in the Greek language (New Testament) means, “goods, production, harvest, yield, and gathering.”
Are you a business person? Be fruitful. Sell! Promote! Multiply.
Are you a pastor? Grow, grow, grow. Reap and increase. Jesus cautioned:
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
We can become outstandingly productive only when we are abiding in Christ, the Vine.
When I learned this rare secret about setting faith goals, it radically transformed my life, ministry, family, income, charitable giving, and personal net assets. It helped me understand that it’s just as easy for God to send hundreds and thousands as it is for Him to send ones and tens. Our church grew exponentially when I began to practice setting faith goals. I began to walk in God’s increase and growth.
Our little church had never given more than $35,000 to missions in any given year. That was it! So, I set a faith goal of giving $1,000,000 to missions every year and a target date to begin. Like a miracle, it happened one year before I had planned! When I left the pastorate after more than 30 years, our church was giving over $3,000,000 a year to missions. A CPA verified that over 30 years, our church had given more than $40,000,000 to mission projects and ministries worldwide. God works with you when you express faith through setting faith goals.
The practice of setting faith goals is rooted in God’s Word, so it works!
The number one reason why people don’t have what they want is because they don’t know what they want. Most people have never intentionally articulated their dreams and aspirations or the things they want. But once you learn what my students have learned in my Faith Goals Seminar and Workshop, you will see your life—step-by-step—becoming more extraordinary, fulfilled, and possibly skyrocketing to new dimensions of productivity.
Designing an Exceptional Life
Setting faith goals is a practice of cooperating with the Divine. It’s partnering with God to design an exceptional life. A faith goal will give focus to your faith (Hebrews 11:3).
In 2024, you’re going to do something failures never do. Fruitless, unproductive people, even though loved by God, hardly ever take the time to establish any faith goals. I guess it never occurs to them that faith is what pleases God (Hebrews 11:6). Have they forgotten that faith is the substance of the things you hope for? Has it ever dawned on them to believe Jesus when he said, “What things soever you desire when you pray, believe that you receive them and you shall have them?” (Mark 11:24)
The Indiana District Superintendent realized the amazing growth of those who set faith goals, so he invited me to come down to talk to the states’ key leaders and coach them in setting faith goals for their churches and ministries. And I never felt the presence of God so strongly as in those Indiana meetings.
Faith Goals are micro-steps that take you forward toward your macro-picture; the vision or dream God has put in your heart. Get started right now in designing your 2024 and beyond. Say it out loud: “1000 times more in 2024!”
The Faith Goals Seminar and Workshop on January 20 may be the supernatural tool God uses to radically upgrade and enlarge your performance and launch you into fresh dimensions of influence and fulfillment. John O’Leary, Jason Rodgers, and I will be your coaches. Learn more here.
Just as a jet fighter is catapulted off an aircraft carrier, I believe your life is being positioned to catapult to a new level of intimacy with God, creativity, and high-level achievement in 2024.
