I don’t about you, but I KNOW that the Lord is my shield. I spent the first two weeks of this month in the hospital around the clock with someone who went in for cancer surgery which resulted in two ER visits after discharge and then a second week long admission. Twice in the ER for hours right next to people testing positive for corona and we are both healthy, safe, & symptom free. He is faithful folks. I may not know everything there is available to know, but I do know Him & that’s worthy of testifying about.
“The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”
Psalms 18:2 NKJV
Don’t confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence is an attitude. Excellence is a conscious effort to not cut corners, do things in proper order, and give things your best effort every time you put your hands to it. Excellence is going the extra mile.
“And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two.” Matthew 5:41 NKJV
For the believer it is so important to adapt an attitude of excellence because we represent the Kingdom of God upon the earth and nothing chases folks away from God faster then a bad witness.
I once worked for an extremely large company and there were lots of people who identified as believers that worked there but more who did not. The better employees for the most part (not all, but most) were people who weren’t believers.
Believers were often late, took longer breaks, and spent way more time tending to personal things while on the clock (phone calls, text messages) then the other employees. When they would get corrected or disciplined they’d often blame the devil and the demonic spirit that was rising up against them without ever acknowledging their own behavior.
As a representation of God our actions and behavior serve as a witness every time we step out in public. We should be the BEST employees at our jobs, the people who do what they pay us for, the people that are on time, etc. This is a matter of integrity. When you agree to take a job, you are agreeing to follow the policy and do what’s in your job description. So many people neglect this and don’t realize to the non-believer they are being a bad witness. Why would anyone want to serve the God of the guy who’s always on his phone and late to work?
An attitude of excellence isn’t just for the workplace. Every time you step in to a public place your attitude, actions, and behavior absolutely matter and matter even more so at home. This isn’t a matter of perfection, this is a matter of us reflecting the image of an Almighty God to a world that is in desperate need of His love. Don’t be the kind of witness that pushes people away from God, be the person that goes the extra mile in excellence so people want to know about the God you serve. He is so faithful that if you put fourth the effort? He is quite capable of drawing people to Himself through you so don’t worry, He always has the hardest part under control.
I’ve done a lot of interviews over the years and this one I am very excited about sharing. When I first watched the documentary trailer that I’ve posted here for you to view, I can honestly tell you it gave me a reminder of just how awesome God is. I hope that it blesses you, and for those of you that are interested in contacting Mr. Martinez for speaking engagements, log on to his website http://www.thewarriorlevel.com and fill out the contact information section.

“Examine your own life before you judge how others live. (John 8:7) as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, “let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her” nobodies innocent, “for all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God (Romans 3:23) Go listen to this track, hope you all feel it.”- Joseph SD
