The are seven spheres of society that shape the way we think. This is how culture is shaped, by the following 7 sectors: Religion, Family, Business, Government, Education, Arts and Entertainment.
God has a desire to win the nations back unto Him (Matthew 28:19, Revelations 21:26,) His strategy for reaching the nations and transforming societies; it is the marketplace, in each of these spheres.
All of this is the land which I, the LORD, promised to give to your ancestors, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and to their descendants. Go and occupy it. Deuteronomy 1:8
Today, there is a paradigm shift in the Church -that is triggering a great awakening as Gods people are becoming aware that there is a mighty move of God in the workplace.
Men & women are becoming mindful of the fact that their work is their God given assignment. God has designed each person individually, with a unique mix of abilities, strengths, desires. God has an assignment for every individual. God’s assignment is the key that will unlock supernatural favour.
God never made a distinction between sacred and secular -this is the work of the enemy. 95% of the body of Christ are not employed by the church in “full-time ministry” so there must be a destiny for this 95%. In fact, the Hebrew word for “work” is “avodah” – which means “worship.” God sees our work as worship. The enemy knows that these 7 spheres (work) are prime real estate and will not relinquish it without a fight. Those people who occupy the high places have the tremendous influence.
For much too long have the Church incorrectly elevated the 5 Fold Minister more holy and committed than the person who is serving outside in a more secular environment. Yet, the call to the secular marketplace is as important as any other calling. God has to have His people in every sphere of life. Otherwise, many would never come to know Him.
Let him demonstrate His power through your life so that others might experience Him through you today and see your “work” as worship for God’s glory.
May you never devalue your work even if your product or service has no eternal value. The work of a doctor, entrepreneurs, salesman, technician or musician has value.
Therefore be excellent in whatever you do.
Those whom God will use in the Kingdom His marketplace ministers; are reliant on God’s Spirit, skilled and exemplify the spirit of excellence in their field.
