I don’t play piano anymore.

But I do have people who can play.

God sent a young man to me to play so I could preach. He was 17 at the time.

If I didn’t allow him to walk into his destiny, it would have prohibited me to walk into mine.

And I think this is where a lot of people mess up–in business, in companies, in small companies in particular–because you start out doing one thing and that’s what you had to do because you didn’t have anybody else to do it.

And you won’t get off the bench and get out of the way to let somebody come in who can do it better. And that will allow you to what you were created to do.

Don’t get stuck in one stage.

Get off the bench.

And let somebody play who can really play.

Sometimes the best thing you can do for God is to get out of the way.
