The Power To Change Your World

We need to distinguish between having the vision for positive change and having the power to effect such changes. It is not enough to know what needs to be done. You need the power to do what needs to be done. You have to realize early in your career that your divine assignment to steer the world towards a better future requires you to have the means to do so. We cannot watch our world effectively, if we lack the economic might required to drive our agenda. You must develop the necessary intelligence to exert a socio-economic influence over your world.

David Green is an American businessman, and founder of Hobby Lobby, a chain of arts and crafts stores. He is 80 years old, a billionaire worth around seven billion dollars and a major financial supporter of Evangelical organizations. David Green sued the US Government in 2012, claiming that a new law was at odds with his Christian faith. The case went all the way to the Supreme Court, where he won the case. The reason he could do more than pray for the law to be repealed was because he had the economic, social and political powers necessary to influence his world. Hobby Lobby operates over 900 stores in the USA and a staff strength of over 43,000 employees (2020 figures).

Unless you can exert economic influence over your world, you will not be able to do much besides prayer. Praying over matters of your watch is a good habit, but it should not stop there. You and I know that the pattern as revealed in the Holy Bible is for God to send a leader in response to prayers of the people. And you can position yourself to work with God for advancement of kingdom values in your community. We need you to develop the necessary intelligence and influence required to tackle challenges head on. We need to control the companies that serve our world.
