Excellence or Money?

WHAT IS YOUR MOTIVATION IN LIFE?
Many people dream of getting promoted in their jobs. They long for a dream job.
Most people I know aspire to be the best where they are.
In all areas of life, people have a dream of becoming the best and reaching the pinnacle of their professions.
Unfortunately, most of the people who aspire to reach the height of their professions want this just to get more money.
In actual fact, excellence should be our motivation.
When we aspire for promotion and desire elevation at our places of work, for the sake of excellence rather than for money, we become better people.

Unfortunately, getting more money seems to be the greatest driving force for most people. When you are at the top of your profession just for the money, it does not always mean you are the best you could be. “Coach said. “The quality of a man’s life is in direct proportion to his commitment to excellence, regardless of his chosen field of endeavor.” ― Sherman Alexie
When we are driven by the desire to be the best we could be, then excellence becomes the natural fruit of our efforts. Excellence is equal to self-perfection.

The desire for excellence therefore is one of the strongest gifts an individual could give to himself. It is better than the gift of money. It supersedes the reward of a salary.
In the case of a salary, you may have a fatter wallet but that does not necessarily result in a greater
personality. But when you pursue excellence, your capacity is always enhanced. You become better
professionally and at a personal level, you become better qualified and skilled and eventually this will affect your income.

“I hope you will simply do what you can do in the best way you know. If you do so, you will witness miracles come to pass.” ― Gordon B. Hinckley

The striving for excellence is one of the most important aspects of professionalism. No one can truly become professional in his or her chosen area without the striving for excellence. When you go after excellence, your focus is not on the salary or finances, even though that must be expected too.

Your focus is on putting quality in everything you do. A man of excellence tends to dedicate himself to giving his best into whatever he does. He sees his work as his signature. He puts a stamp of excellence by his integrity into whatever he does.

This is a major game changer between people who strive to attain promotion for money and those who strive for elevation through excellence.

When you have excellence as your focus, you become an achiever sooner or later.

Permit me say this, where Excellence will take you to, Money will fake you to!!

THE 7 DISPENSATIONS IN THE BIBLE

Dispensationalism is a method of interpreting history that divides God’s work and purposes toward mankind into different periods of time. Usually, there are seven dispensations identified, although some theologians believe there are nine. Others count as few as three or as many as thirty-seven dispensations. 

In this article, we will limit ourselves to the seven basic dispensations found in scripture.

SPIRITUAL INTERACTION 1

John 12:24
[24]Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. 


There are depths in the spirit just as there are depths in the soil. Death in the Bible verse above represents an interaction (of the seed with the soil).

Nothing grows by itself. Whatever will grow must interact and be interacted with.

The seed (you) interacts with its environment (God) to bear fruits.
Thus, there are two keys of interaction;
1. The object to be planted (the seed - you),
2. The environment (God).

God is the ultimate environment of our spiritual nature and we are so constituted by God that we cannot interact without him.

God is the environment and not the object!

Google is an aberrated system of God to teach men that there is a system in Him that can help men search out the realities of God, the very deep things of God - a system of interaction and knowing the heart of the Father.

But, a generation will never…

THE MYSTERY OF HIS PRESENCE

Have you ever wondered why God will not honour the words of certain men and honour that of another?
Have you ever thought about something  like this or experienced this:
The Bible says .....You shall lay your hands upon the sick and they will recover(Mark 16:18b). You laid your hands and instead of a recovery, you found a discovery – that the man is not healed and the sickness/disease has back-fired. This can be painful......  until a young man comes and at the sound of his voice, the infirmity flees.
Has this ever bothered you?
Or that a man speaks into existence instantly what you have been begging God for with fasting and prayers.




I bring you a mystery today!

THE REVIVAL AND THE MOVES OF GOD

Genesis 2:4-6
[4]These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
[5]And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
[6]But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

God had not caused it to rain upon the earth because there was no man. God is helpless without a man and will never be able to send down His rain(move) on earth without a man.

Thus, there are two elements that makes up the move of God:
1. A man
2. Territories

What is the Move of God?
The move of God is God moving men through roles in His agenda which births events called Revivals.
A revelation of Alignment!

Kingdom advancement is territorial and not just personal. The value system of the kingdom must translate from you and be reflected in your…

SPIRITUAL INTELLIGENCE

Revelation 22:14
Blessed are those who do the commandments that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.

Any man that keeps the commandments of God opens himself up to the right to the tree of life that he may find himself eating of that tree.

There is a force of creation, and one of the factors that you must get correctly is COMMANDMENTS.

Commandments are God’s word to a man. They are the very element used by God to make covenants with men. It is the first dimension in the ordinance cycle.


What then is ordinance?
Ordinance is simply the embodiment of the codes of creation. It is ordinance that makes LAWS.
DOWNLOAD AUDIO MESSAGE ON SPIRITUAL INTELLIGENCE 1
There are two dimensions of laws.
1. Spiritual laws and
2. Natural laws
These two dimensions merge into what is called PRINCIPLES.

Principles are bodies of laws (spiritual and natural laws) with God's integrity on them.
Everything is built by laws; governed by principles and activate…
