Want a higher position? Erica Campbell says be prepared for difficulty

GETTYArticle By Kai Harper // EEW Magazine Spiritual

Share It seems like everyone is seeking God for elevation these days. They believe they are ready for the next level, more territory and a higher position.

But if you want increase, GRAMMY® Award-winning gospel singer Erica Campbell says be prepared for difficulty, too.

“If you are looking at yourself and you go, ‘I want to have that big position. I want to be in charge. I want to be able to direct people’s comings and goings, and say ‘We’re going to do this and we’re going to do that,’ you also have to deal with the problems of dealing with a lot of people,” she said Tuesday on her nationally syndicated radio show Get Up! Mornings with Erica Campbell.

The “Help” singer, who daily shares spiritual affirmations and biblical teaching on her program, anchored her teaching in Matthew 25:23.

That scripture reads, “His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’

The idea of being faithful over a few things doesn’t appeal very much to those eager to be ruler over many things. But before enthusiastically diving head first into a deep sea of responsibility, the 44-year-old Campbell warned listeners, saying, “You have to ask yourself, ‘Am I prepared?’”

Some may be wondering, exactly what do I need to be prepared for?

The first lady of California Worship Center that she leads with her GRAMMY®-winning producer husband and ministry companion, Warryn Campbell, continued, “You have to prepare yourself. You have to learn how to deal with difficulty, how to respond to people in love, how to diffuse situations.”

Though the WE tv reality star, Mary Mary group member, solo artist and entrepreneur may make juggling it all look simple, she admitted, “It’s not always easy being in charge or being in big positions.”

So, if you’re thinking about pursuing major opportunities, Campbell warned, “There are great benefits, but there are also great consequences, so you have to know if you’re ready for it.”

Believe you're ready? Take this prayer found in Hebrews 13:21 NLT with you, that says, "may he equip you with all you need for doing his will. May he produce in you, through the power of Jesus Christ, every good thing that is pleasing to him. All glory to him forever and ever! Amen."
