You Have Been Chosen

In this special excerpt, Carter Wood reminds us that we are all ministers … and more! 

Below are some notes from our Partners-only Monthly Mentoring Session. These sessions have been recorded and you can access them by becoming a Partner today! Find out more at 

Carter began the session by saying that our spirit should be in charge of us all the time. This is not often preached in churches.

 There is a call of God that’s on the church that’s so profound. It’s not hard to preach to people because they’re hungry for more of God. They just don’t know how to experience more. 

 You are chosen! Your calling supersedes your vocation.

 These signs will follow those who believe … they will heal the sick, they will raise the dead, and they will cast out demons.

 Carter mentioned that his most-said statement is that every person who is born again is a minister on this Earth.

 A lot of times when we go to church, we hear our pastors preach, but when we understand it from a Fivefold context (apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, teachers), the primary objective of all the offices is to equip the saints for the work of the ministry. That’s you and me!

 If we can grab ahold of that, we can understand how God is building an army of witnesses. Go to 1 Corinthians 12 and look into all the gifts and see what we have access to.

 Carter believes we’re living in a time where God is showing us how much more we can have of Him. Realize that we’re the stopping point, not God.

 Once, Bill Johnson asked Carter, “What do you want from God?” Carter replied, “I want more.” The answer Carter received was not the one that he was expecting. Bill said, “God’s not the stopping point, you are. That’s the wrong posture. You can have as much of God as you want.”

 Carter will never forget that statement! That awakened Carter to the thought that most of us don’t have big enough thinking.

 Carter also said that there’s something going on in our generation that’s waking people up. He believes there’s going to be a great women’s movement in our world.

 One time he was asking God why he had four girls and he heard the Lord say, “I want you to champion women to know who I am and that they have the same access to me that you have as a man. Gender has nothing to do with it.”

 Carter believes that God is calling people, both young and old, male and female. There’s something going on right now that’s very powerful! 

 If you pay attention to the news, there’s a lot going on that’s not okay. There’s a manifestation of the enemy and he’s trying everything to disassemble morality in our generation. But Carter emphasized, “The enemy doesn’t win. It’s good news. God wins.”
