There was a time I was obsessed with numbers. It happens to the best of us. We have been brainwashed into believing that we are “influential” if we have a large following on social media. If our posts draw thousands of views and hundreds of comments, then we are called “influencers”.
But is that really true? What is true influence? How does one gain the position of influence?
God has taught me that social media numbers don’t mean a thing if lives ain’t getting transformed through you.
If you have 100,000 followers and none has come to the knowledge of God through you, then you have no influence. channeling our energies toward the pursuit of popularity, will eventually draw us away from God and his true purpose for our lives
True influence is given to the heart that is submitted to the Holy Spirit. Chase God. Not numbers .
Chasing numbers lead to pride, self glorification and faith in human endorsement and approval.
But God can give you all you need and more if you let him use you to build the lives of the few hundred followers you have online.
True influence comes from a place of humility and obedience. Go after God. He will give you the right words to speak or write. He will draw men to you for you to bless them. He will set you up in places you couldn’t have dreamed of.
True influence belongs to the Master. He gives it as he wills.
