TOPIC : DISCOVERING PLATFORM FOR MISSIONARY ASSIGNMENT
Scripture: Matthew 25: 15 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.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter. As a matter of introduction, the purpose of a thing is in its design. A tipper was designed to carry sand. A Range Rover sport car was designed for comfort. So also our lives were designed with various compositions. That’s why my strength could be your weakness and vice versa. Hence to struggle all through life trying to do what you were not designed for, is an act that gives God pain. Today, we shall begin to explore how to discover your platform for you to fulfil your missionary assignment.
Yesterday, we did establish that your platform is your career/ profession. Our lives on Earth are on a missionary assignment. Our job provides the platform for this missionary assignment. It is necessary therefore, for us to know what job we are meant to do. And it is in discovering this job/platform that vision is born, and wealth created.
How to discover platform for fulfilling purpose?
The following are ways to discover your platform;
Our anchor scripture(Matt.25:15) reveals there is what is called ABILITY/POTENTIAL/TALENT in every man. God gave that ability so that you can have a platform for reaching your world!
What is potential?
According to Merriam Webster dictionary it is an ability that someone has that can be developed to help that person become successful.
So every man on earth is wired by God with one potential or the other. There’s no man that is barren of potential. That you have not discovered it doesn’t mean God did not bless you with one. The following questions will guide you on discovering of your platform/job via your potential:
a. What is it that you don’t need formal training before you can do?
b. What is it that you don’t struggle to do?
c. What are you wise at doing?
d. What do people say about your ability in certain areas
e. What areas do people want to learn from you?
Get a quiet place and sit down, ask yourself the above five questions! The answers you gather will bring out your platform for fullfiling purpose on earth. If you ask these questions, you should be able to determine what you have been wired/gifted to do. Please note that another word for potential is Gifting.
Proverbs 18: 16. A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.
That means if you arrived at a place where others meet close doors, your potential/talent is a key to unlocking every closed door. Infact, if there were no doors before your arrival, your potential will create one.
Beloved, your potential when discovered, developed and deployed can take you to places in life where you least expect. It can take you to where your certificate cannot take you. It can take you to prominent men or great men.
Proverbs 17: 8. A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it: whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth .
Finally, your potential is a wealth creation avenue. You will discover you are enjoying doing what you are meant to do and at the same time getting paid for it. At the same time, winning the lost is as easy as A,B,C.
Remember this : Heaven is real and hell is real! To make heaven or hell depends on your personal decision for Jesus.
- Father thank you for your word to me today, I’m grateful for wiring me with loads of potentials.
- Father, help me to discover my platform through the potential you deposited in me in Jesus name.
Prophetic Declaration :
- I prophesy that door that was once closed against you before will suddenly open now..
- The Hand that turned around the story of Jabez comes upon you now for a turnaround story.
From your brother Alex
God bless you.
