Your Life grows up from or is choked out by the Values that are at the Foundation level of what you allow in your space. The three Values that make up the Foundation of your life are IMPOSED, COSTLY, and FRUITFUL.
The FRUITFUL Values are those actions that are what you are ordained to be involved in by the Spirit of God. This is the place where you get to do ministry. If you want to have good health, exercise or eating good food fit here. Rest. Study & preparation for your calling. Spending time with people who love and build you up.
The IMPOSED Values are the demands placed on you by your responsibilities to people who are dependent on your for their provision and/or protection. Children or elderly parents. People you mentor or pray for. These are valuable to you because the relationship is valuable to you.
The Costly Values are bad habits like laziness and addictions. They are values because they demand resources that are valuable. If I am addicted to food or porn or drugs or Facebook, those addictions demand that I spend time and/or money and/or energy on them.
When I am following the leading of the Spirit in my schedule and budget and heart and mind, He leads me into a balance of the FRUITFUL and the IMPOSED – I serve the people who depend on me, but with limits on the resources they can consume. I sometimes say “no” to them. I deliberately clear space on the Foundation for the FRUITFUL Values. I am sure that their demands are given priority when distributing the resources. I pull up the weeds in the COSTLY space so that I can make room for FRUITFUL and IMPOSED Values.
Just creating cleared space at this Foundational level of my life is sufficient for growth in that area. Time spent with Jesus alone will bear Fruit. Time spent on the people I am responsible for will manifest Jesus to them and bless them. Unattended, uncontrolled, those demands will take more and more space. I have to be in the Spirit when I decide what to do with them. Stuff grows out of the Values without much effort. The effort is keeping the FRUITFUL space clear of the other Values.
The COSTLY demands must be continually fought and un-funded. I have to take the whole land for the Kingdom of God.
