What Makes You Unstoppable: Five Keys to Fulfilling Personal Mission

Thursday, July 03, 2014 • Pastor David Clarke • Faith
Pastor Clarke offers what it takes to fulfill personal mission with these five critical keys. Apply these principles and keep moving forward!
What makes you unstoppable? What do you really need in order to continue advancing your personal mission? The following is adapted from a sermon I preached recently in the Grove Zone. 
1. Fear
I would hope your personal mission is God-given. Why? Because a God-given personal mission should be undergirded by a healthy, God-glorifying reverence for Him and His expectations for fulfilling His call on our lives. When this type of fear is present, quitting simply because we want to is absent. Love, reverence, and a sense of awe should drive obedience.

Jesus in Matt. 10:28 NLT
"Don't be afraid of those who want to kill your body; they cannot touch your soul. Fear only God, who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

2. Fellowship (Phil. 4:10)
Fellowship entails sharing. Paul's fellowship with the Philippians provided a channel for them to share money he needed to fulfill his personal mission. One thing that can make you unstoppable is people in your fellowship who can share AMERE. These may not all come from every person in your fellowship. One person may share one thing whereas another may share something else. AMERE:

Accountability
Who holds you accountable to Godly conduct, your goals, God-glorifying business practices?
Money
Don't let the lack of funds bring you to a screeching halt. Who helps finance what you're called to do?
Expertise
Having people who have been there, done that, and accumulated expertise they're willing to share can surely keep you going!
Referrals
I'm learning more and more the importance of having people who can refer you to others who need what you offer. It can certainly keep you moving forward.
Encouragement
Ever been on the verge of giving up until an encouraging word came your way? Thank God for those who believe in us and lift us up when we're down!

3. Favor (Phil. 4:10)
There was an obstacle that prevented the Philippians from giving toward Paul's ministry. The Lord showed favor toward Paul's ministry in removing the obstacle between the Philippians and Paul and replacing it with an opportunity for the Philippians to send Paul some financial help. God is able to do that, you know? He can replace obstacles with opportunities and replace barriers with blessings!

4. Faith (v.13)
Paul said, "I can do…" Fulfilling personal mission requires a healthy, God-glorifying confidence in God using you! Paul demonstrated a faith that said, "I believe I can". Its awesome how God uses average, ordinary people to do extraordinary things. 

"If this world is going to be reached, I am convinced that it must be done by men and women of average talent." -D. L. Moody

Don't compare yourself to others. It can intimidate you and cripple you. God does not call the qualified. He qualifies the called. 

Of his fame, Moody admitted, "I know perfectly well that, wherever I go and preach, there are many better preachers ... than I am; all that I can say about it is that the Lord uses me."

Believe God can and will use you. Surrender to Him doing so and watch Him blow your mind!

5. Fuel (Phil. 4:13)
Paul said his strength came from Christ-not charisma, talent, or fame. He had supernatural fuel for his personal mission. This sustains the fire in your belly. It keeps you trying to do His will no matter what. It develops a tough mind and makes you unstoppable!

In conclusion: "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord."  I Cor. 15:58 KJV
