THURS DAY, 24TH OCTOBER, 2019 .
QUOTE OF THE DAY: “WHEN YOU SEEK GOD’S FACE, HE EXTENDS HIS HANDS ALSO ” ANCHOR TEXT:
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you ” Matthew 6:33 .

Seeking God’s kingdom first is the greatest service any man on earth can do to himself. One of the keys to enjoying the abundant life God has for mankind is making Him one’s priority. But unfortunately, many seeks His hands, leaving aside His face. To seek means to crave, pursue, to make sacrifices to get, to go after with all strength. To therefore crave and pursue earthly possession s at the expense of eternity is a colossal mistake. Joy, peace, wealth are dividends of the kingdom. The great promise to those who decide to seek the Lord is that they will find Him: ‘And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the Lord searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; (more…)

WHERE IS YOUR OWN GIFT?

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “YOU CAN’T UTILIZE A GIFT YOU HAVE NOT YET DISCOVERED”
ANCHOR TEXT:
“And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey” Matthew 25:15.

A gift is an inborn virtue acquired from God. It is a natural ability to perform a task, create something or to innovate an action. It is a natural talent or intelligence vested in someone by God. Therefore, one can say that God is the giver of all good gifts and the Holy Spirit is the activator. Your gift is given to you to make profit for God and to expand His kingdom on earth. Gifts are not given for selfish interest. Gifts are in two major categories – natural and spiritual. The natural gifts are inborn virtues possessed by individuals which cannot be acquired through education and training, but can be enhanced and developed through education. These kinds of gifts are exhibited by artist, pianist, dancers, writers, presenters and so on. It was this kind of gift – dream interpretation – that took Joseph to the presence of King Pharaoh. The spiritual gifts are given by God to every believer for the purpose of edification of the body of Christ. They could be word of wisdom, word of knowledge, faith, prophecy, speaking in tongue and lots more.

TURN YOUR POTENTIALS TO GOLD

TUESDAY, 22ND OCTOBER, 2019.
QUOTE OF THE DAY: “POTENTIAL IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN CREDENTIAL”
ANCHOR TEXT:
“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us” 2 Corinthians 4:7.

Potential is superior to credentials. Potential is natural endowment whereas credential is what you spend money to acquire. The use of potential can give you a lifetime fulfillment but credential may never. As a matter of fact, in an ideal situation, it is your potential that should dictate the kind of school you will attend as well as the kind of course you must choose. God has deposited certain potential in everyone to make him preferential. For instance, in Abram was Abraham, in Sarai was Sarah, in Moses was a leader, in Joseph was the gift of dream interpretation, in Jesus is Christ. In you is what? You have something! The challenge of most men is that they only look but cannot see. Most people do not see their potentials, so they can’t use it. You can only make use of what you can see. Abraham Lincoln could see the seat of the United State of American’s Presidency; Micheangelo could see the artistic acumen in him. (more…)
