Wherever Two Are Gathered
Finding Your Team – One of the great insights to achieving your personal dream is the realization that you’re going to need help. No one who is successful or productive or wealthy achieves everything by himself. We prophetic people often get a release from the Holy Spirit to pursue our dream and assume we can get there with God’s help alone. It’s not practical or true. Elisha had Elijah; Timothy got help from Paul; Paul got his start from Barabbas; Jesus took three and a half years with his disciples. Everyone has a mentor. Everyone has team members who share the dream enough to help make it happen.
“Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.” Matt 18:19-20 NIV
Whatsoever you ask – Your dream – the desire of your heart that you share with God… will exceed your personal talents. You’ll be the initiator. You’ll have the faith. But others will be involved in helping you achieve great things. Notice the “two’s” in Jesus’ statement. There really is a principle of finding friends to help make your dream come true at its highest level. One can run off a thousand, but two can take care of 10,000. The first friend to help is Jesus himself. We access his presence with others.
How could one man chase a thousand, or two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them, unless the LORD had given them up? Deut 32:30 NIV
Hint: Want to know where to start to find your dream? Help someone else fulfill their dream. “What’s your dream and how I can help you take the next step?”
Masterminding – There is a new buzz word in the training field. Masterminding is like brainstorming but it involves people who are personally committed to one another. It’s brainstorming on the heart level with a little help from the Holy Spirit. Flushing out the full scope of your dream will take some help, too. Then, how to achieve it takes even more help.
Here are a couple more hints.
Set your highest goals around who you want to become (that’s eternal). Then set your smaller goals around that dream… finances, etc.
Secondly, consider letting your goals stretch out beyond your own life time. God’s plan for the Kingdom doesn’t end with you and me.
Third, find your two or more.
Blessings – We’re on our way to Kiev for 10 days in the Ukraine. Up at 4 am Friday and we land Saturday afternoon then take a train to Lutsk Saturday night… may take a day or two to recover? We translated Desire to Destiny into Russian so it will be available for the conferences – pretty cool. Special thanks to David Tinney. We’re here to release some hearts and target some dreams. I’ll put some status of the trip on face book at http://www.facebook.com/john.garfield1.

PS: I want to recommend some follow-up reading.
Who is God by Harold Eberle provides the best explanation of the open view of God. It’s must reading that connects our perception of God with everyday life.
Releasing Kings for Ministry in the Marketplace takes that foundation into marketplace ministry and the entrepreneurial nature of Kings. Fruit in the marketplace naturally springs out of sound doctrine.
Desire to Destiny – Takes the foundation and marketplace ministry and puts them in the context of seven practical keys or stages of growth you can apply in your own life.
You’re invited into the vision to release Kings; communicate the message, make the money, and do the mission.
1.The Message – Our first goal is to get the Releasing Kings message into the hands of the messengers that will carry it… do it, preach it, teach it, example it.
2.The Money – The second goal is to help Kings break out of poverty by networking them with practical opportunities to prosper. We want to introduce them to the right people, the right opportunity, and the right financial approach.
3.The Mission – Network Kings with opportunities to mix business and missions. Accomplish the great commission through the marketplace.
