The law of synergy

In keeping with my promise on writing about relationships, I want to elaborate today on one, if not the main law that guarantees any relationship staying together. My first article for the year, which was posted a few weeks ago dealt extensively about our topic. In fact, we elaborated on the purpose of synergy and the many benefits that accompany it.

Today we will further explore this law from a relationship point of view and how when one comes to the understanding of this simple but powerful law. Their understanding will provoke not only change, but cause them to look carefully at the folks that  are presently occupying their time and determine for themselves whether they’re relationship is working for them or against them.

I want to make abundantly clear, that in order to produce and maintain synergy in any relationship, then the bedrock of that relationship MUST be pedestal on RESPECT!
Now, what is synergy? Well synergy is the combine effort of two or more people combining their resources seeking after the same goal, and with the same mindset. This couple or people will produce more as a team, than they were doing as individuals.

The bottom line, the entire concept of synergy is to always produce more. So before we go any further in this teaching, if your relationship is not or has not produce more than you were doing as individuals, then let me be the first to tell you that there has been a breech in the law of synergy which automatically causes the parties involved to work against each other.

Unfortunately, this breech is always initiated by a lack of respect by the parties involved towards each other. The word respect is defined as holding someone or something in high esteem or in great honor. The sub meaning of this word suggests or gives the idea of an invisible wall between the parties that even though they would feel the need from time to time when in an argument or disagreement to verbally or physically attack each other. The invisible wall called respect will only allow them to go so far simply because the high esteem or honor that they have for each other. Thus, your respect for your partner, places a demand on you to control your anger and your dislike of certain things that the other party would do that upsets you. If what I have just said is depleted in your relationship. Then the foundation in which synergy is suppose to be built has been compromised.

If you are presently involved in a relationship, where your partner behaves as if they’re better than you, belittles you, completely disrespects you, ashamed to be in public places with you and always have you isolated under the disguise that they only want to protect you, my friend these are all signs that, this person is working against you and clearly has no real interest or good intentions towards you but are totally consumed by their selfish pride ridden motives that will always exclude you. Remember the law of synergy, it provokes unity and sees everyone involve as equals making their individual contribution to complete the whole.

My article that was posted in this Colum on the 17th January 2012, “The law of antagonism” spoke clearly about when a team or couple begins to work against each other. Even though they are a team, if they are working against each other, then they must produce less than they were doing as individuals.

It is always God’s purpose that when he put anything together its results are always to produce more. Genesis 1:28 says, “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth. Fruitful, multiply and replenish all speak of increase to any union that God has put together. If this is the case, then ask yourself, “If God has put your union together (be it business or romance) then why is it producing less?” Another scripture says, “And the LORD said, “Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them” Genesis 11:6.

Wow! God himself said that if the people are one, speaking one language (meaning seeking the same goal and seeing each other as equal) not only will this be the beginning or their success as a team but nothing shall be impossible for them to accomplish…………

Question! Are you producing more in your relationship? Sorry! I didn’t hear that, did you say No? Then why are you holding on to something that is guaranteeing you less? Can’t you see that the world is passing you by, while you’ve been dormant for years all because you refuse to do what you know you have to do. The right person is in search for you even as you read this you’re probably admiring them everyday. They are equip with all that you desire, more importantly RESPECT for you! However it is impossible for them to find you, if you’re saddle down with that selfish, controlling, self centered, arrogant, I’m better than you person you have shackle yourself to. God wants you to live, and living begins with being connected to the right people, places and things that will cause you to produce more……..LIFE IS ABOUT PRODUCING MORE………IT’S CALL SYNERGY!

Heavenly Father, I pray for a complete divide and ripping away of anything or anyone that the readers of this article are connected to that has caused them to produce less for them, than they were doing by themselves. I further pray that you would replace that void with the right people and places in the matchless name of Jesus Christ. Amen!

The law of antagonism

All relationships are governed by laws whether we admit it or not. As a matter of fact I would further my point by saying everything, be it seen or unseen meaning physical or spiritual has its boundaries or limits set by laws that governs or control its behavior.

With the above being said, then it would be wise in an attempt to better understand the nature of someone, we must first ascertain the laws that control or govern them or at least the principles and rules that they knowing or unknowingly subscribe to.

Now, what exactly is a law? Well, a law is defined as any set of rules or principles that regulates, govern or control the behavior or actions of anyone or anything, it is also the determining factor as to what the end result will be concerning someone or something based on the laws applied in that situation.

This now brings us to the law of antagonism which is one of a series of teachings that I will be writing on in the coming weeks concerning relationships. The law of antagonism dictates that anyone or anything that you have joined yourself to (in this case a relationship) however find yourselves consistently working against one another. This relationship according to this law is pre-destine to always produce, manufacture or result in less as a union than you were producing as individuals.

So, as you can see, this law whether you are aware of it or not once activated will determine a negative outcome it was designed to produce. However this is no newly discovered law. Jesus said, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself SHALL not stand” Matthew 12:25. So, it is clear that we are guaranteed less in any relationship as long as we knowingly or unknowingly participate in this law. Make no mistake, laws do not wait on your approvals in fact it is waiting on your decision to be activated.

As an example, the law of gravity dictates that whatever goes up must come down. Again, this law is not seeking our opinions In order for it to perform what it was designed to do. Meaning, it is a rule and is applicable and dictates to everything and anything. It will not change based on how we feel but must always give the determined end result  based on its purpose of making things come down that goes up.

As it relates to relationships it is always God’s purpose for a relationship to produce MORE! Genesis 1:26 makes this crystal clear when it said, "And God blessed them (union or relationship) and said unto them, "Be FRUITFUL, MULTIPLY and REPLENISH the earth" Each of these words not only represents increase, but it suggests a continual  increase as long as this couple focus on working in harmony with each other and not against each other.

Based on everything that I have said so far I am sure you would agree that a prophet or committee is not necessary to conclude for you that your present relationship is in full swing of the law of antagonism if the continued results of that relationship has been and still is producing, manufacturing or concluding in, less joy, less peace, less love, less communication, less understanding, less respect, less romance and less of everything. Especially if you know within yourself that you were producing more of these things while you were by yourself.

My friend, please! Discontinue with the game playing, quite procrastinating the inevitable, stop the “I’m waiting on God line”, when you are fully aware that based on your recurring past and present circumstances as it relates to your relationship, God has spoken to you based on Matthew 12:25. That relationship will not and can not work. God will not bend or break his rules for you. The rules and laws of God are designed for you to see clearly in the mess of confusion that you’ve fond yourself in so that you can make a sound godly choice that will conclude in a God end result.

Ask yourself the question! Why would God desire to keep you in a relationship that is obviously producing less, if his purpose, intent and design for a relationship is to produce more? Well, like I always say, in order for you to know, recognize or even decipher what good is you must experience bad. Therefore the sole purpose of that temporary designed antagonistic relationship was to condition and prepare you for the one that he has chosen to connect you to, in an effort to produce more and not less.

My words of wisdom for you this marvelous morning is simply this; your past or present antagonistic relationship was and is a temporal season of conditioning and changing the way you think for the better, to embrace the good that is about to be presented to you. If you are bitter and not better as a result of it, then clearly you’ve not learned so get ready to experience it all over again. If you are better and not bitter as a result of it, then get ready because better days are ahead anxiously awaiting the arrival of your conditioned mind.

It is time to let go! God will only release the one that he has purposed for you to produce more with, when you decide to release that one that has been guaranteeing you a constant end result of less!

Heavenly Father, I speak a spirit of release accompanied with peace and the severing of every soul tie for those that have finally made up within their minds to move forward with the expectation of better awaiting their arrival, in the matchless name of Jesus Christ. Amen!

The keys to an excellent stellar performance in the year 2012

The defining moments of 2012 will be predicated on whom we’ve decided to bring along with us out of 2011 or left behind in 2011. It will also be a reflection of whether we became bitter of better through the many challenges of 2011.

God has already determined that 2012 will be defined and labeled as a year of EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE, of which I’m completely committed to this Belief. In fact it will be as a direct result of the   multitude of problems and challenges during the course of 2011 that were literally transforming and conditioning our minds unknowingly, for what we are about to step into in 2012 that is literally waiting our arrival.

During the course of 2011, I wrote extensively about difficulties, challenges, oppression and the like. My intent was to cement into our understanding that every one of the above scenarios were working for us and not against us. In fact if you were wise enough and saw beyond your present dislike circumstances, you would have understood that you were being conditioned and prepared to master what’s to come. Unfortunately, for so many of us we’ve become so focused on who is doing what to us that we repeatedly fail in observing the changes that were subtly  being made in us, that could have only come through those challenges. Therefore it was from the perception of our challenges that we made the erroneous choice to become bitter instead of better.

As you would have noticed all across the world we’ve seen the removal of many leaders including political and religious. Even in our work places, local church assemblies, homes and more so in relationships, please make no mistake these changes are not by accident or chance but carefully calculated by God to move many of you into those now vacant places and connect you properly for your next assignment, come 2012. Thus your training and conditioning were a necessity which came through severe and unimaginable disappointments, failure, demotion, frustration, and lack. All in a grand effort to CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK! You are being placed in position for the year 2012 to change the evil order of which you once oppressively lived under. You unknowingly evolved into the biblical JOSEPH, meaning you became so frustrated as to what happened to you, that you couldn’t even entertain the idea of doing it to others and at the same time created in you an insatiable desire to establish change. This is the law of positive change due to negative circumstances. Now comes the shedding process as you inter 2012, who will you bring along or leave behind? This is critical because in both cases it directly affects whether you’ll do things the same or different. As a warning if you haven’t learned in 2011 then get ready to repeat it in 2012.

The key is, you must be connected properly to the right people, places and environments because it is in these people, places and environments that have the solution for your need and you the solution for their needs that when joined together  will ultimately produce the unexpected, the unimagined and more so THE UNBELIEVIBLE! The word for this phenomenon is called SYNERGY!

In reality synergy is what the religious world calls a miracle. You see, because everything in God’s creation was never designed to operate independent of itself, instead designed to join with something or someone to miraculously produce more or produce less. This understanding is quite clear, when God said that it was not good that the man should be alone, Genesis 2:18. Suggesting, in order for him do produce more he must connect or join with someone or something with like mind each benefiting from each other in an effort to create or produce more.

Interestingly enough King Solomon also understood the revelation of this phenomenon in the following statement, “Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? If one prevails against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broke” Ecclesiastes 4:9-12. My friend the key to success in 2012 is the mastering of SYNERGY! Unfortunately, in order to master this, then you must have gone through a period of challenging circumstances that were unknowingly to you, equipping you mentally to better make wise choices as to who and who not to connect with. As I have repeatedly said to you in 2011, “YOU CAN NOT DECIPHER, RECOGNIZE OR UNDERSTAND WHAT GOOD IS UNTIL YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED BAD”. The so called bad in 2011 was enabling you to recognize good in 2012.

The law of synergy dictates that with the combining efforts of two or more people or things of like minds, their end results will produce more as a team than they were producing as individuals. On the other hand the law of antagonism dictates that the combine efforts of any team working against each other will produce less as an end result of their efforts than they were doing as individuals.

Just for a moment begin to reflect on the  year 2011, now think about what you have lost and what you’ve gained, now take it a step further do your best at this crucial point and try to recall who you were connected to or with during the process of those losses and gains. At this point it should be clear to you who will accompany you in 2012 and who you need to leave behind in 2011. These laws are the filters for making those decisions. 

The year 2012 has embedded in it twelve month of unearth treasures just for you. Connect with God and he will connect you with the right people, places and things to unveil those treasures laid up just for you that you have been conditioned for during the arduous course of 2011. Each month needs you to bring about what he’s purposed in that particular month. I promise you if you do it this way, then it is impossible for you not to achieve excellent Stella performance in 2012.  

Heavenly Father, it is my simple prayer for the beginning of 2012 that your divine favor will advance every intended destination for every reader of this article in the year 2012. I ask this of you Father in the precious name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen!

                          WELCOME FRIENDS TO THE YEAR 2012, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
