Topic: Reigning In Life By Training [Seeds of Destiny Friday June 8, 2018]
Scripture: Children in whom was no blemish, but well favoured, and skilful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science, and such as had ability in them to stand in the king’s palace, and whom they might teach the learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans. Daniel 1:4
Thought For The Day: In order to reign, you must be trained; in order to lead, you must learn.
The Scriptures makes it clear that our God is the KING of Kings and LORD of Lords (Revelation 19:16); He reigns and rules the earth (Psalm 97:1). As children of the KING of Kings, we also exist to rule and reign on earth (Genesis 1:26-28).
However, it is important to know that in order to reign, you must be trained; in order to lead, you must learn. You need education for qualification and destination. Let me give you an example: Pastor E. A. Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God had his first degree in Mathematics, a second degree in Applied Mathematics and then the third in Hydrodynamics. You see, he was already an authority in his field; no matter who you are, you must listen to what he has to say. He has been trained. Beloved, you need to sharpen your mentality by training and education in order to arrive at authority.
King Saul had a mental problem after disobeying God and they looked for a skilful musician, and David was the only person who had the qualification or the kind of musical skill they were looking for (1 Samuel 16:18). So, he was moved from the wilderness to the palace at the frequency of skill and training.
Beloved, there are things prayer may not solve. For example, when a consultant surgeon is needed for an employment, there is no amount of prayer that would make a nurse occupy that position. The world has no respect for the ignorant. Whatever be your trade, give yourself to learning all it takes to be the best in it. Half education could be more dangerous than not being educated at all.
Beloved, my counsel is, decide to increase your knowledge, wisdom and expertise by training. Training locates a man at the place of authority.
Remember this: In order to reign, you must be trained; in order to lead you must learn.
1. Sharpen your skills and upgrade yourself by training.
2. Pursue a professional career by going to school.
Prayer: O Lord, I receive the grace to apply myself to learning and training in order to reign in life. Help me to do this, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
