SWOT SERIES: WEAKNESSES.

Good morning CL Blogs and Monday Digest(MD) readers and Happy Easter.

Last week we discussed Strength and I talked exclusively touching areas i could touch pointing out the spiri-financial side of you- Strength!!

Today we'll consider the Topic Weaknesses and I pray it blesses you.. I hope to keep this short.
Weaknesses(wordweb dictionary):
(a) A flaw/ weak point
(b) Powerlessness revealed by an inability to act
(c) The property of lacking physical/mental strength.
(d) The condition of being financially weak
(e) A penchant for Something even though it might not be good for you.
SWOT defined weaknesses as: characteristics that place the business/project/ personality at a disadvantage relative to others.
Let me keep up with my clarifications here: weaknesses do not mean the same as bad attitudes. 'Attitude is everything and when the attitude is bad; everything is bad'

Even in the greatest of personalities/businesses/projects there are some one/two weaknesses. But I'm here to give a spiri-financial analysis on weaknesses today.

1. Weaknesses make you Unique.
Weaknesses are those things in you that refuses to make you too perfect as a man, giving the relevance of your strength(God) and displaying your uniqueness.
I've been here on earth for a short while and I'm yet to see a personality/business/ project that has gained awareness without some weaknesses.
From the Automobiles, Health and pharmaceuticals, ICT to the Food and Beverage Industry, you'll discover a lot of weaknesses. Take for instance as global as Coke is; creating happiness to its consumers and all it has some characteristics placing it at disadvantage to one/two other soft drinks- (a) its addictive properties 
(b) possible health damage constituents i.e High sugar content, aspartme.
As it is for Coke so it is for you!
You are only perfect in God(PING!!!)

2. Weaknesses reveals the strengths!
A writer is a writer(strength) but might keep too much to himself/ over- segregate himself a times(weaknesses), You are outspoken (strength) but you're tagged a talkative (weaknesses)...... It goes on and on like that! Even in the scriptures; Moses was a Community leader, Shepherd and Mouth piece of God(strength) but he was a stammerer (weaknesses). But all of these qualities are what makes us all unique and great in our own way. All of these weaknesses bring out your strength!! Imagine a stammerer speaking the mind of God to the people where were the Outspoken ones? That is what your weaknesses do to you.... they make that simple gift and talent (strength) look so unique like you are the only one with it. How do you see your weaknesses?

3. Attracts External strength to you!
External Strength- is the strength your weaknesses attracts and not your personal(internal).
If you closely go through these life of the aforementioned- Moses you'll discover he had an external strength for his weakness. Moses had Aaron!
How much do you attract what you lack?
A lot of us have made weaknesses have their turn on us thereby making us become some sort of inferior products. We are so aggressive to anything/anyone that seems to have what we do not posses!
Be ready to cooperate with whatever will yield results.

Remember: + and - gives current!

Lastly, the SWOT definition of weaknesses: characteristics that place the business/project/personality at a disadvantage relative to others! - this means it is the business/project/person that possesses those characteristics.
You are that thing that places you at disadvantages to others!

Eradicate those traits/characteristics and opt out of them.

Stop combating with what you should be cooperating with!
Accept your weaknesses as the path to some strength outside of you and if you find one do keep them.

Remember: 1 will chase 1000 and 2 will chase 10,000.
Have  weakness maximized week,
Same time next week.

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.

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 CONCEPT OF SHEKINAH

ARE YOU TRUE TO YOUR CALLING? | Pastor E.A Adeboye

There are many people in ministry today who are going off track because they are operating in areas wherein they were not called.  Some out of personal ambition, are operating in callings that are not theirs while others are innocently operating in the wrong callings out of concern.

Having a burden about something or seeing a need does not automatically translate to a calling!

“And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.”                 2 Timothy 2:5 KJV
According to the above Bible verse, anyone who does things outside the will of the Master will be disqualified.

Everyone who God has called is scored by Him!

If what you are doing is outside God’s calling for your life, no matter how good you are in that calling or ministry, it is regarded as irrelevant.

Paul was greatly burdened by how the Jews were walking outside the will of God.

He kept preaching to them, yet they were persecuting him.

The greatest persecution he got were from the…

THE MYSTERY CALLED MAN

Psalm 8:4-6
[4]What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
[5]For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
[6]Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet

Everything in heaven and on Earth was created for man but man cannot make use of it until he knows WHAT HE IS.

Heaven was never created for God. Heaven and Earth were created for man... But it takes a man who knows WHAT he is to accurately represent God on earth, because, man is meant to extend the fullness of God in the earth for God and so, in reality, God needs men!

We came from God; not heaven and we are returning to God through heaven!
1 Timothy 3:16
[16]And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

The Lord Jesus did all …
