Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
– Genesis 1:26-27 (NKJV)
God had a vision and then He took time to create the proper foundation that would enable each of His separate ideas and visions thrive…then He created!
When He was done, He decided to make man and make him the “responsibility officer” overseeing His project.
There is a vital lesson here. God picked (or made) a candidate that was “like Him”, understanding that a difference in vision and concept would ultimately destroy the course or divine plan.
As you climb up the mountain top ask yourself, who is your “responsibility officer”. Who is overseeing your ideas and vision?
Who are you partnering with?
You need to involve people with like mind to be responsibility partners with you. You must pick carefully. Jesus took His time to pick the twelve….so prayerfully partner with one or two people who will stand by your vision, caution you when you deviate, encourage you when you loose steam and applaud you when you do well.
He/she should be wise (Proverbs 13:20– Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm) (Proverbs 18:24… One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.)
Build carefully on your way to the top.
In Jesus Name i declare my steps are ordered of God. My delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law I meditate day and night.I am like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever I do shall prosper. Amen.
