What is your kingdom project?

Many, many years ago, as the truth about prosperity was at its peak before it became mainstream, I found myself embracing all that I was hearing. Some of the teaching has held me in good stead. I made proclamations and went on an adventure. I wanted to be successful. But now being slightly older and looking back over those years, whilst I thank God for the revelation at the time, it has left me somewhat disappointed. Even today, when I hear about biblical success and all that it is supposed to achieve for us, it still leaves me with a feeling of incompleteness. The one thing it lacked was an eternal perspective; being successful in this life for what?

Indeed what does it profit a man to gain the whole world but to lose his soul. As Christians, this might not necessarily be about losing our souls so much as it is about losing our focus.

I am reminded of the story of David who wanted to build a memorial for God on the earth – a dwelling place for God. Acts 7:46 says of him that he ‘enjoyed God’s favour and asked that he might provide a dwelling place for the God of Jacob’.

Though he was not the one to build the temple, the fact is that he had a kingdom project in mind. So, when we say that we want to be successful, the question is ‘what kingdom project do we have in mind?’

By kingdom project, I am not talking about paying a tithe, double tithe or whatever percentage the preacher has encouraged us to give. I am talking about a God-birthed desire so strong in you which has been placed there by God – a driving force that causes you to seek prosperity to fulfil a heavenly goal. David is described as a man after God’s own heart and so had access to the mind of God (Acts 13:22).

We would all like to be known as a friend of God and therefore by default, we have access to that kingdom project that God has for us.

I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you (John 15:15).

Your kingdom project is not one that can be obtained based on the words of man (though God does speak and confirm things through man) it can only be obtained from the heart of God. Everything that Jesus did, had an eternal perspective.

However, it is one thing to have this desire, the other side of the coin is to be willing to carry it out. God said of David that he would do His will.

God testified concerning him: ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do’ (Acts 13:22).

If you have not got a burning desire to do something great for God, can I suggest that you start from that point. Once you have received your kingdom project, ask for the grace to complete the project. May our testimony be like that of Jesus so we too can say ‘I have come to do your will O’ Lord’.

So until I appear again in your inbox with more insight from the scriptures, stay blessed
