20 Kingdom Truths for Marketplace Warriors

One of my journals is a “Kingdom Download” journal, a place where I record impressions, words and thoughts I sense heaven drops upon me.

I write them down, pray and meditate over them, and transfer the most impactful ones to a digital list I refer to often. What some might call “pithy” statements, I enjoy seeing God’s mind and heart flow through what I sense as His continuing communion with me.

This week I was led to share 20 Kingdom Downloads with you.

I pray you find them both inspirational and revelational.

I would also appreciate your comments on which ones (if any) jump in your spirit!

  1. We need to shift from living up to our potential to embracing His promises for our lives.
  1. We fight a supernatural war played out in the natural. We must therefore wage our marketplace war in the real battlefield with our supernatural weapons (armor, prayer language, spiritual gifts, etc.).
  1. The wisdom of the world is pitiful compared to the wisdom of God.
  1. You must see it (supernatural vision) before you receive it (natural manifestation).
  1. Do not look for a reason to do something – look for a witness.

Do not look for a reason to do something – look for a witness.

  1. 1st century apostles were militants with one assignment: world dominion (influence/impact). Should we settle for less?
  1. You do not need to know the ultimate address as long as you are moving forward.
  1. Kings do not beg – they decree! Speak those things that are not in your business as if they are.
  1. Focus on the few, then follow through.
  1. Stay in your marketplace (destiny) lane – there is no traffic there.
  1. It’s not about doing more. It’s about your next move.

It’s not about doing more. It’s about your next move.

  1. The defeated enemy can NEVER stop your work for the Lord – he can only delay it.
  1. Marketplace warriors filled with Holy Spirit power are environment/atmosphere shifters. When we walk into a room, Shift Happens!
  1. As I’m learning, I’m journaling.
  1. God does not have back-up plans. So, commune with Him to reveal His plan for you, and then violently execute it!
  1. My business is not designed for me to force results, but for Him to bless results.

My business is not designed for me to force results, but for Him to bless results.

  1. We must shift our “success” focus from traditional financial Return on Investment (ROI) to Eternal Return on Investment (EROI).
  1. Marketplace warriors do not deny the reality or size of a problem. Rather, they declare the power and size of God in the face of the problem.
  1. When God restores, He always multiplies. When the defeated enemy seems to be winning, focus on your forthcoming bounty.
  1. We cannot claim enemy territory (earthly marketplace kingdom) unless we have conquered it, and we cannot conquer it unless we have invaded it. Embrace your calling of a supernatural  “Space Invader” and reclaim your marketplace for His kingdom.

    Dr. Jim,
    13 of the 20 resonate with me! The one’s that speak to me the most are: #5, #7, #9, #10 & #11. I’m in the beginning stages of launching the Kingdom Mogul Network. Our mission is to help leaders grow their faith as they grow their business. I’m still figuring out what that looks like and how to position my services. I have a small email list that I’m nurturing and I want to make sure that I’m adding value.

    Reading this post has encouraged me to keep moving even though I don’t have total clarity. I’ve been having impromptu organic conversations with people who are boldly leaving thier corporate jobs to follow their passions. These conversations have been my witness and I am genuinely excited for them as they move in faith.

    Also, I’ve been encountering crazy resistance from people that are close to me. I count this as a witness as well.

    Thank you for posting this. It was Right On Time!

    -Jesse

      Thank you Jesse. I life up your Kingdom Soul Network for supernatural favor and power! Our life is truly measured by our willingness to #BeLed (hence my book, “Our Unfair Advantage: Unleash the Power of Holy Spirit in Your Business”). I export you to move in faith – not doubt, boldness – not timidity, at His speed – not yours. Also, I encourage you to NOT despise small beginnings (as most entrepreneurs like us really distain!). Blessings my friend.

  • Bob Wendel says:

    15 and 17 I will commit to memory. Thanks a lot Jim! Your thoughts have been some of the best and consistent life lessons I’ve had the privilege to read and apply over the years. You are a man of God and live it. Please keep it coming. Bob Wendel

    • Dr. Jim says:

      That’s great Bob! I very much appreciate you and everyone else giving me feedback on what resonates and what does not. Your words are very touching, and yes, I will do all I can to “keep it coming!”

  • Jason Brown says:

    Thank you again Jim for your obedience, listening to the Holy Spirit and then imparting that wisdom to us. The Lord will increase your territory because of your faithfulness and encouragement to so many.
    Kingdom Expansion Download- when you are called, equipped, and positioned – do not look right or left and see what others are doing, stay in your lane and run to the finish line He has shown you. A movement leader is someone who is leading in a movement without being named “the leader” or having a title. This movement in the marketplace is not about conglomeration but simultaneous connections and collaboration. All participants heading in the same direction, in their field, maximizing their gifts, being lead daily by the Lord, creates an unstoppable force multiplier. Jim, thanks for showing us how to be lead by the true Leader in our lives!

    • Dr. Jim says:

      Wonderful revelation Jason. Totally LOVE your concept of “Movement Leader” – that is something YOU should share with all your Marketplace Chaplains, client companies, and your entire professional network. Brother, that would be a PHENOMENAL blog/podcast series and book. Connections. Collaboration. Direction. Maximizing gifts. Daily Leading. Unstoppable multiplier. I encourage you to record this, commune with the Lord, then (at minimum) prepare a 45-minute presentation to share with business leaders and ministry teams. Keep us posted Jason – THIS will be GOOD!

  • Eric Snyder says:

    #11 for me as I contemplate the next move! 46 years later and time for succession and transition, this will be interesting!!

    • Dr. Jim says:

      It will indeed, Eric, to watch the Father guide you into your next “mountain to conquer” – just like Caleb!!!!

  • Curt Fowler says:

    Jim – #6 just floored me. What a reason for excellence in the marketplace!

    Thank you for the amazing work God is doing through you.

    Please keep listening, learning and sharing!

    – Curt

    • Dr. Jim says:

      #6 hits me too Curt! Dominion is NOT “domination” but Godly influence throughout. THAT is our ultimate goal – His kingdom come! So glad we are on this same journey!
