Dear Mighty Pastor,
I remember that Sunday night service in Round Mountain, NV. Only three people showed up (Wendy, me, and one more person). There were many lies I was tempted to believe about my people and about myself. "You are a failure as a leader," or "You are pastoring a non-committed group of people," or "This meeting has less potential because of how few people are here," or "You should focus more on who is not in the meeting than who actually is in the meeting." Ha ha ha.
It was in that season the Lord was impressing this truth on me: "Instead of trying to do something great, why don't you do what you are doing now with great faith?" This was a key truth of breakthrough for me.
This truth helped me to intentionally release my faith before meetings I would attend (whether church services, counseling meetings, board meetings, etc.). I believe on many levels that what I believe before the meeting is more important than what I do in the meeting.
Here is an experiment for you to do: Make powerful declarations before every meeting you have in the next few days. Feel free to let us know how this affects you and the meetings.
For more on this (and how to overcoming the spirit of foreboding), read my blog "Seeding the Clouds of Your Future."
