Influence is powerful. When GOD is preparing you for influence, HE begins to deal with your personal character, to prepare you for a great responsibility. Some people have failed to recognized the significance of influence, and it’s true meaning. Influence is not based on popularity; celebrity status, or followers. Influence is “Impact” and your ability to lead and shift the lives of others. Influence is a responsibility because you are able to influence others without even opening your mouth. Influence carries weight, and GOD is looking for those who are able to carry his weight with responsibility. Influence requires a clear head, and a clear focus. You must be able to discern well, and make the right decision even if it requires saying “NO.” When you have influence, you just can’t say or do anything you want to do. You have to use discernment because your endorsement to a person or situation carries weight.
This month I want to focus on Influence because rather you recognize it or not, you have some form of influence in your sphere of authority. Influence requires accountability; humility; discernment, and skill. The more influence you have, the more responsibility you are given. Many people ask GOD for more; without recognizing that when GOD give you more, HE requires more of you and from you.
