It's Time To Grow Up
This message was shared at High Calling Ministries in Upper Marlboro,MD. It’s a message that shifted me while I was sharing it as I believe the Lord was transitioning me in that moment to prepare me for the work He was bringing me into.
This message is one that will challenge you to separate yourself from the status quo and courageous step into the next season of your life.
There are places and spaces where the Lord wants to take you that demands a more mature version of who you are today.
I pray the message blesses and challenges you to move from where you are and GROW to where GOD would have you to be.

A Youthful Perspective of Kingdom Excellence
According to Elder Lafaun, excellence is an identity; it's not just a tool or skill or what we're found doing with our hands but rather how we are doing what GOD has called us to do with our hands. Excellence is what we give out; it's the ability to stand out.
Elder Lafaun defines Kingdom Excellence as the quality of being outstanding or extremely good under the rulership/jurisdiction of a King.
Kingdom Excellence is not possible without the King. We cannot operate with Kingdom Excellence if we have no relationship with the King.
The words we speak are a testament to our level of consecration; we must remember that our words matter and have the ability to shape our world.

Managing Transitions with Kingdom Excellence
Thank you for tuning in to this episode of the Operating in the Spirit of Kingdom Excellence podcast.
Keys to remember when navigating transition in the local church:
The Power of Prayer - Remember, this is the Lord’s church, we serve under His domain, we follow His blueprint as provided for us in His word, and we turn to Him, not our preferences, opinions, education, or influence for how we should manage the transition in His church.
The Importance of Preparation - The preparation process reveals character, one's ability to be humble and teachable, whether one can be accountable, how one handles correction and spiritual discipline, how one demonstrates their submission to serve in areas where they’re needed and not necessarily where they want to serve. Before the promotion, one must be prepared for the assignment. This waiting period, this time of preparation is a prerequisite for effective leadership. Do not be swift in promoting the gift
