When God gives you an assignment in His Kingdom He expects you to own it and run it like it’s your own kingdom. Therefore, what shows up in your kingdom – you take it very personally.

You see if it’s His Kingdom then you very well might say that “I’m trying hard.” But if it’s YOUR kingdom to be administered for Him by you then everything including the parables that Jesus taught about ownership and stewardship apply.

When He gave talents to servants or gave “this” to that one or “that” to this one when He returned home – He checked in on what they did with what He entrusted to them.

Matthew 25:14-30 (paraphrased): Like a man going on a journey, who entrusted his property to his servants. One got five talents, another two talents and another one talent, each according to his ability; then went on his journey. After a long time the master returned and settled the accounts with them. First servant said, you entrusted me with five talents; I have gained five more. His master replied, well done, good and faithful servant! Come and share your master’s happiness! The next servant said, you entrusted me with two talents; I have gained two more. His master replied, well done, good and faithful servant! Come and share your master’s happiness! Then the last one said, I knew that you are a hard man, so I was afraid and hid your talent in the ground and here is what belongs to you. His master replied, you wicked and lazy servant! You should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so I would have received interest. Take that talent and give it to my first servant for he will have abundance and throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness.

These three servants were given resources of their master to administer or administrate. They should have taken it very personal.

What if YOUR DESTINY is connected to: what FRUIT are you called to manifest, what TERRITORY are you called to take, or what FOOTPRINT are you called to leave on planet earth…
that YOU are anointed, assigned and created to fulfill?

If you were to take ownership of it, you would put up with a lot less garbage from the devil in that territory. When it’s not yours anything can be going on in that “region” – but when it’s yours it personalizes it for you.

So, when David is looking over a few sheep in a field he takes ownership of the flock as though they were his, as though it was his own business. The sheep were actually his father’s sheep but he tended to them as though they were his.

Because of his personal regard, when a lion or a bear came he didn’t say “sorry dad a lion came and killed one of your sheep”. No, instead his response was: “hey, that’s mine, that’s my sheep; touch it and you’re dead!” Something goes off in his head; he’s now not thinking normal; he’s not thinking fear nor the size of the opponent, he’s thinking stewardship and ownership of a sphere assigned to him and he takes it much more serious. He takes you running off with one of his sheep very personally.

So … what do YOU think? Any examples in your life that come to mind?

  1. Hi Lance,
    I’ve been watching your free videos on youtube and feel greatly inspired by your teachings.

    I’m a Christian of Chinese descent from Malaysia where we’re undergoing some challenging times of late as our Prime Minister and his government is steeped in corruption, injustice, dirty politics, racial tension,etc. If you google Malaysian politics, there are a great many articles written about it. It is a scandal of huge proportion.

    Our currency Malaysian Ringgit is now at a all time low against the US$ which has made things a lot more expensive.

    I was wondering whether there’s a way you can mentor me to be a change agent using my God given talents that I’ve managed to turn into a skill that I believe will benefit God’s Kingdom.

    So what do I do for a living? I’m a online forex trader for the past 10+ years. During this time, I’ve managed to go through peaks and valleys but I know God has stirred in my heart to do something for God’s Kingdom.

    I’ve managed to develop an expert advisor or “robot” in collaboration with a programmer. The Robot can trade automatically and profitably based on certain specifications and algorithms that has been set in advance.

    I guess, what I really want to ask is how do I become entrepreunial as you’ve suggested. I’m not a marketing person but I do want to take this to another level in the financial world. Would you be so kind as to mentor me? I consider this as a divine appointment.

    Your advise and help is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    God bless,

      PS..I just found you Lance..I’m on periscope are an amazing teacher.. Thank you so confirm everything I’ve been preaching to all that will listen..

  2. Yes, I can feel I need to own this. What I have continued to battle is a religious spirit that tells me to be polite, also known as politically correct. I am a warrior by nature and I will no longer hold back. Thank you Lance for being yourself.

  3. I am a female veteran. I was with the first battalion of women who trained with men at Fort McClellan, Alabama. When we went to bivouac, which is when we are put in combat situations for training, women were not yet allowed to carry guns. When the drill sergeant ordered me to go out into the “battlefield” and tend to a soldier who suffered an abdominal gunshot wound (plastic guts were everywhere….), I requested a gun. He was upset and said “What did you say, Private!?” My response was, ” Why would I think that the person who shot him is not going to shoot me? Where is my gun, sir!” I was immediately dismissed but not for being a smart aleck kid of 17. I was dismissed because the sergeant realized I actually wanted to serve and I was their to train…I was not there to make pretend I was training. At the time, women training with men in boot camp was highly controversial. Officers were concerned over the effect that women would have on “real soldiers”.

    The drill sergeant respected my response and he dismissed me because there was nothing more in bivouac training I needed. That portion of the training was to get us rookies acclimated to the sounds of bullets, being shot at, chemical gas and equipment, and wilderness training, etc. All of that training is useless without common sense and a strong survival instinct. I believe the drill sergeant sensed I had both in spades, so my training was completed on the second day. Even though at 17 I was still a snotty nosed kid, I recognized the approval that my sergeant had given was rare and personal. Everyone else had to finish bivouac.

    Three years later, women were allowed to train with guns, but by then I had completed my term.

  4. I would like to say that if something costs you, you are less likely to let go of it that easily. A series of processes had to occur to me for me to become more rooted in what He specifically assigned to me that took several steps. At each time the floods, winds, and rains came I was able to withstand at every stage. Or at least if I did fall He gave me what I needed to get back up again.

    I know after doing many things His way and many things My way what my jurisdiction and authority is and it makes me more and more unmovable…in regards to what you have shared I absolutely agree that God gives us gifts and talents but many don’t personally own them. I’ve had to go through my garden of Gethsemane, carry my own cross, and learnt without the suffering that God uses for His purposes we won’t receive or inherit or walk in His glory that to me is like tiers it gets stronger and stronger more and more intense.

    I had to go through stages of maturity and this is ongoing, to really own what I own today. To know its my domain. So thank you very much I love the way you explained this.
