Making best use of the time, because the days are evil – Ephesians 5 : 16.
We have to make good use of our time as the above bible verse says. We should not try to waist our time for irrelevant things because the time is so short to be wasted. We all have a gift and that gift will make room for us anywhere we go therefore, we should work on that gift and develop it. God has created us to keep growing and not be stagnant. If we are not improving, we will fade away very soon – that will not be our portion in the name of Jesus Christ. We should mind the company we keep because there are many people out there who feel they have arrived and do not need to go further. That was Apostle Paul said that, ”Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do. Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead. I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus” – Philippians 3 : 13 – 14.
When one stop learning, he or she will stop growing. Take time to invest on yourself. If you are not prepared, the opportunity will not come and if you are not prepared physically, the spiritual blessing might not stay. To fulfil destiny, we need to be prepared for such task. David was able to defeat Goliath because he was physically prepared and he developed his skills. David was the one that threw the sling with the power of God because he has trained himself on how to throw the sling without a physical trainer. Anything you are doing to train yourself behind close doors which no one else is seeing except the Almighty God, He is taking note of it and one day, He will give you the opportunity to demonstrate that which you have developed.
Have a personal growth plan. Take advantage of anytime you have at your disposal. If you are away from your work and nobody missed you, you have to sharpen your skills more. Anywhere Joseph went to, he was always given the opportunity to take up responsibilities not because his name was Joseph but because he developed his skills and always use his gift. A gift can become useless if it is not being utilised. You cannot have a gift and refuse to develop it. Use that gift to be a provider of solutions, a problem solver and not a problem creator. Today we have technology in our fingertip. Take online course, no matter your age read books, magazines, get a mentor so that you can fulfil your destiny because your generation is waiting for you. Many people are waiting for you to be a blessing to them by using your gift on them. God has given you that opportunity to have that gift therefore use it to glory His name without fear because He is with you.
O Lord my God, without You we are unable to do anything. Give us the grace to fulfil develop and work on the gift that You have deposited in us to edify the body of Christ so that and the end of it all, the glory and honour will be given unto You in the name of Jesus Christ.
