24-Sep Isaiah 53-54, Rev. 15-16, Psalms 131-135, Proverbs 24

Proverbs 24:6 (NIV) for waging war you need guidance, and for victory many advisers.

A wise and knowledgable person knows that taking a step of faith, starting a business, buying a house, or doing anything major that's normally beyond your normal daily decision making - requires guidance from a team. Doing great things in life requires a team of professionals. Their advice and guidance is important if you want to win. If you don't care about winning, then by all means - make your own decisions and suffer the loss. The more advisers you can gather around you, the more capacity you have to win a victory and be highly successful.

I like what Robert Kiyosaki (Rich Dad, Poor Dad author) said once. He said that he builds a team of professionals around him when he starts a business or builds an idea. And he makes sure that he's the dumbest guy at the table so they never ask for his input. He listens to them, and takes their advice. This has made him highly successful throughout the decades.

I think that the most unsuccessful group of people I've ever seen who don't use this principle are pastors of churches. The pastor has a heart to build a church, help people who are in trouble, and build them up to become successful by giving them strong principles of faith and spiritual/moral support. But a pastor wears too many hats. The successful ones have a strong board of elders surrounding them, who are hand picked for their wisdom and strength. Without advisors and strong counsel, the pastor must make all the financial decisions on his own. He must figure out how to finance and build structures, how that structure best serves the vision and the people. He must know how to deal with people, from helping them park their cars before church service, to helping them in a deep crisis counseling session. He must train and build up the staff, run the office, answer the mail, and basically figure out EVERYTHING on his own. Why? Because he either refuses or doesn't know how to build a team of professionals. And because of this, there are multiple mistakes made, which end up looking bad for the Lord. The Lord's guy didn't do it right, made the wrong decisions, and caused the church to suffer because of the mistakes. Why didn't God direct him differently? The answer is simple. Build a team, or remain small and unsuccessful.

What about you? Where have you struggled with success in your past? What has God given you to do which is remaining small with lots of mistakes made? Have you built a team of professionals around you? Do you easily accept advice from them? Are you on purpose, the dumbest guy on the team, openly and honestly, so the team can make the decisions and your job was to assemble them and encourage them? Big things require big teams. Small things only require a small team or an individual.

I challenge you today to find your advisors to help build. Pay them if you need to. God will give you the funding or the resources to pay them what they need. And many of them don't need cash. Their successes have taken care of the cash. They have other needs that you might be able to meet.

IF you build it, they will come! king king king
