A New Feeling

December 26, 2012

Man, my speaking experience has changed so much in the last year. I remember
 traveling to places to speak and when I got there the people in the room looked like 
they were bored stiff and wanted no parts of a motivational lecture. However, once I 
got started talking, I could see the atmosphere in the room change. People no longer 
slouched in their seats. Instead, they sat up and leaned in… listening intently. I always 
enjoyed the challenge of going into a “cold” room and bringing life to the audience.
 As a matter of fact, I had become comfortable with it. As the days, weeks, and month’s rolled by, that is no longer my reality. A few weeks 
ago I spoke at an event in Times Square. I can’t explain it, but as I paced outside the
 door waiting to be introduced, it was like I could feel the energy of the people in the 
room as they awaited the message. Upon being introduced, the crowd in attendance
 clapped and gave me a standing ovation that seemingly lasted forever. Embarrassed,
 I tried hard to shhh them and tell them to sit down, but they kept applauding. Now I am not going to sit here and act like the acknowledgment didn’t feel good
 because it did. However, as I looked at them applauding, I quickly realized they 
weren’t necessarily applauding me, but they were applauding the information that 
I had given them. This was by far one of the most humbling experiences that I have 
ever had in my professional career. I got to be honest, the pressure to produce is much greater now than in previous 
years. It used to be easy because the people in the room had no expectations of what
was to come. Now, I am well aware of the fact that when people come to see me 
speak, they come in expecting to see and hear greatness! But you know what? I am
 beginning to enjoy this challenge as well.

  • As you continue, the draw will be greater and more intense. But Joshua 1:8 compels us to stay calm, cool and collected with no fear or dismayed. Why? For the Lord is with you wherever you go. The greater the crowds and the higher the expectations rise, the greater outpouring of anointing and glory from on high. So rest and enjoy: the roads have been paved and prepared far in advance of your arrival.
