OCTOBER 2021 MIRACLES & PROPHETIC SERVICE – SUNDAY, 24TH OCTOBER 2021
ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): PROVERBS 22:29
SERVICE OBJECTIVE(S): Understanding what it profits to function in excellence
WHAT IS EXCELLENCE ALL ABOUT?
- Excellence is about being the very best you can be and doing the very best you can do in every facet of life
Ask yourself, is this the very best I can do?
- Excellence is about taking your gifts, potentials and abilities to the highest possible level
Refuse to stop midway in terms of how good you can be
Excellence is PEAK POTENTIALS PERFORMANCE (PPP)
- Excellence is about doing what your hands find to do with all your might (Eccl. 9:10)
Excellence has to do with holding nothing back that is profitable or that can enhance value
THE PROFITABILITY OF EXCELLENCE:
- Excellence brings opportunity (Prov. 22:29; 18:16; Gen. 41:14; 1Sam. 16:17-19; Dan. 5:11-13)
SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF OPPORTUNITY BY EXCELLENCE:
- The gift/excellence of Joseph gave him the opportunity of standing before pharaoh and offering generational solution to Egypt (Gen. 41:14).
Joseph went from the prison to the palace by virtue of excellence
- The gift/excellence of David gave him the opportunity of standing before and ministering to King Saul (1Sam. 16:17-19)
There are things that spirituality can do for you but there are things quality will do for you that only spirituality cannot do
It wasn’t fasting that took David to the palace, it was excellence
- The gift/excellence of Daniel gave him the opportunity to minister before all the kings that lived in his time (Dan. 5:11-13)
Daniel became notorious for good by virtue of the display of excellence
There are doors that open naturally because you excel
Excellence will bring opportunity but what you do with the opportunity is what will determine your impact in life
WHAT TO DO WITH OPPORTUNITY:
- Opportunity is to be used to offer generational answers and solutions
- Opportunity is to be used to saturate your world with Kingdom principles and bring glory to God
- Opportunity is to be used to bring many unto salvation
When you excel people want to listen to you and when they listen to you, you can tell them about what matters in life
The number of people who will hear you and be influenced by you when you are up are more in
number than those who will hear you if you are down
Nothing drives pursuit like purpose
THE PROFITABILITY OF EXCELLENCE:
- Excellence brings authority (Prov. 22:29; Gen. 41:40-44; 1Sam. 18:6-7; Dan. 6:1-3; 1:20-21 Matt. 27:57)
The way of excellence is the way to the top; the way of excellence is the way of leadership
SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF AUTHORITY BY EXCELLENCE:
- Excellence took Joseph to the highest position of power and authority in Egypt (Gen. 41:40-44)
Quality deletes obscurity; you can never die in obscurity if you are given to quality delivery
- Excellence positioned David in the highest level of influence in Israel (1Sam. 18:6-7)
Leadership is influence
- Excellence positioned Daniel above all his contemporaries and made him a relevant authority in Babylon (Dan. 6:1-3; 1:20-21)
In various fields of human endeavour, excellence takes people to the top.
It is natural to go to the top if you are the best
Excellence deletes prejudice
WHAT TO DO WITH AUTHORITY:
- Authority is to be used to positively influence systems, institutions and spheres from the top down (Judg. 7:17)
Don’t die under; live above.
- Authority is to be used to positively impact people in authority (Matt. 27:57-58)
Poverty is a limitation of impact
If you are not going to be successful because of you, be successful because of Christ.
Take it as your Christian duty to be in charge and on top
You are duty bound under God to be on top
Take it as your Christian responsibility to be in a position of authority
- Authority is to be used to positively impact the masses (Eccl. 9:16)
THE PROFITABILITY OF EXCELLENCE:
- Excellence brings prosperity (Gen. 41:39-44; Dan. 2:48; 5:29; 6:28; 1Chron. 29:2-3; 1Kings 10:4-6, 23-25)
Excellence brings abundance; quality attracts quantity
SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF PROSPERITY BY EXCELLENCE:
- Excellence gave Joseph control of the whole wealth of Egypt (Gen. 41:39-44)
- Excellence brought Daniel into unbelievable wealth and abundance (Dan. 2:48; 5:29; 6:28)
- Excellence brought David into unbelievable wealth and abundance (1Chron. 29:2-3)
- Excellence brought Solomon into the realm of unquantifiable wealth and abundance (1Kings 10:4-6, 23-25)
THE BENEFIT OF PROSPERITY THAT COMES FROM EXCELLENCE:
- Prosperity is designed for the
spread of the Gospel (Zech. 1:17)
God is giving you unction and provision so that the devil can receive frustration
If you want to be relevant in the end time Gospel, you must have financial power and muscle!
- Prosperity is designed for generationally impactful good works (Matt. 5:16; 1Tim. 6:17-18)
The church is at the forefront of good works
Riches without outreach is thorough wretchedness
- Prosperity is to be used to reach out to the poor and the underprivileged (Gen. 12:2-3)
God wants you to be a distributor and not an accumulator
When you come to the point where there is nothing too big to surrender to God then He will put in your hands what will amaze you
Put God first, put impact first, put making meaning first and God will put massive resources in your hands that will shock you.
Pursue God passionately and what others pursue will pursue you
