Seeds of Destiny 9th August 2021 Today Devotional Message:
It has been confirmed that dedication to God means waiting on Him for instruction and command unto service. Service to God involves running His errands (John 2:5). Whether it is a soul-winning assignment, assignment in the sanctuary, or in the home church, service means running errands for God.
Today, we shall be looking at one dimension of service.
Serving God with one’s ability and capability
This involves serving God with what you are able and capable of doing.
Exodus 36:1 says,
Then wrought Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man, in whom the Lord put wisdom and understanding to know how to work all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that the Lord had commanded.
Service involves deploying your capability and creativity for the service of the sanctuary of God.
It is not proper when you have the capability that heaven needs for the expansion of God’s Kingdom and you only use it to make money for personal consumption.
If you know how to do something that will advance God’s Kingdom and His Agenda on earth, don’t just do that thing only to advance yourself and the world. God gave you various abilities and capabilities primarily to advance His Kingdom.
And we have three forms of ability: Physical ability, mental ability and spiritual ability.
This means, we have people deploying their energy for cleaning the House of God for others to sit. There are people who stand at junctions and direct people to church. Those are examples of deploying one’s physical energy for God.
The deployment of mental energy involves the use of your wisdom, knowledge or mental resources for the expansion of the Kingdom of God. So, make up your mind to advance the Kingdom of God with your abilities.
REMEMBER THIS: God gave you various abilities and capabilities primarily to advance His Kingdom.
1. Identify the areas in which you are destined to pour out your life for God.
2. Deploy your abilities, capabilities, potentials in the service of God.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to deploy my abilities and potentials in service to You. Help me not to be redundant in Your service, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: THE COVENANT OF SERVICE (PT 1).
QUOTE: A second thing to know about laziness is that it limits potentials. Diligence and hard work release potentials. Culled from “21 FOOLISH THINGS PEOPLE DO” by Dr Paul Enenche
DAILY READING: Jeremiah 10-12
REFLECTION: What difference have you made in the church assembly where you are? What will that church miss if you are no longer there? That measures your relevance.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: You shall not live an impactless life in Jesus’ Name.
