Ministering: Bishop David O. Oyedepo.
The making of excellence begins with light and walking in that light.
Is. 60:1-2 & 8. Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.
For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
Who are these that fly as a cloud and as the doves to their windows?
Excellence is not for wishers or procrastinators, it is for performing and productive hands. No Excuse is tenable for doing nothing with God.
Gen. 39:21. But the LORD was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.
Those that procrastinate don’t experience Excellence. There is nothing in doing nothing. Any life without a strong beginning has no future. “Everything big starts small, everything great starts little”. Everything in life is man’s responsibility. Everything in Life requires responsibility. The idle has no future. Before you get what you want, whatever your hands finds to do, do it with all your might. Excellence is a function of performance.
Pro. 22:29 Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.
Pro. 13:4 The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
Excellence doesn’t apply to the indolent or sluggard but performing productive hands.
Pro. 12:24 The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute.
Eccl. 9:10 Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
You can’t climb a ladder without a starting point; find a starting point in life. Excellence is a function of performance.
Eccl. 10:18 By much slothfulness the building decayeth; and through idleness of the hands the house droppeth through.
There is nothing in doing nothing, it is called decadence. There is always a stench in doing nothing. As a Christian you are not permitted to be idle. Down time is a risk and doing nothing is a risk. Find something doing where you are. It’s not Excellence by title, but Excellence by output.
You have the mind of Christ so create, innovate for legitimate earning. Excellence is a function of performance.
Excellence is simply a product of tirelessly improvement. There is nothing magical about Excellence, it is simply a product of one’s tireless commitment to improvement. Wisdom does not wait for solution, it creates it. There is always a better way of getting things done.
Matt. 20:3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.
You are either in literal practical things or Kingdom matters, whichever one; refuse to be doing nothing.
YOU HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST TO CREATE, INNOVATE FOR LEGITIMATE EARNING.
Very importantly Excellence in your spiritual life, you will be here to represent Jesus, they look at you and they see Jesus
Pro. 13:11 Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase.
Wealth must be produced, not received. It doesn’t matter what parents left for their children, it does not add to your worth.
Lift up your two hands and ask God for grace to take responsibility, I refuse to be a Playboy in the market place so help me Jesus!.
