Pastor, do people laugh at your vision?
Do you cast a vision that is so enormous that it WILL hopelessly fail if God doesn't show up? If not, you should!
Our God longs for leaders to request of Him to do that which they cannot.
Why does He long for this type of faith? So all the glory will be His . . .He wants to amaze us and have us spellbound and breathless over His wondrous works.
Question: What are you accomplishing in your ministry presently that does not require God to pull it off? Whatever it is, please stop.
God has not called us to a natural ministry, but to a supernatural ministry which requires us to cast vision and lead in such a way that only our Super God can accomplish it.
Marinate on that.
