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.

ARE THERE TYPES OF FAST?

ARE THERE TYPES OF FAST? Fasting is the periodic abstention from food and in some cases even water; usually this is done during the daylight hours and many people fast for religious and health reasons. Fasting is an ancient practice that has assisted in attaining a state of spiritual consciousness that is more highly sensitive and elevated than under normal conditions.

Many people in the Bible fasted, including Moses, David, and Daniel in the Old Testament and Anna, Paul, and Jesus Christ in the New Testament. Many important figures in Christian history attested to fasting’s value, as do many Christians today.

The purpose of fasting is not to get God to respond as a genie in a bottle to grant our every wish. Fasting, whether it is regular, partial, absolute, or sexual, is a seeking after God’s heart, all other blessings and benefits being secondary to God Himself. This is what sets apart biblical fasting from other religious and cultural practices around the world.

The Bible describes …

DID JOHN THE BAPTIST REALLY EAT INSECTS(LOCUST)?

His name was divinely given. It was to be “John” (Luke 1:13), which derives from a Hebrew term signifying “Jehovah is gracious.” He was known familiarly as “the Baptist” (bearing no relation to the modern sect), which simply means “an immerser, one who administers the rite of immersion” (Matthew. 3:1; 11:11; ..). The Jewish historian Josephus even refers to John by this designation (Antiquities 18.5.2).


The importance of John in the divine scheme of things probably is summed up best in the testimony of Jesus himself. “Among them that are born of women there has not arisen a greater than John the Baptist” (Matthew 11:11). Luke does say of John: “And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his showing unto Israel” (Luke 1:80). This desert (or deserted) area “stretches from Jerusalem and Bethlehem eastward some 20 miles down to the Jordan River and the Dead Sea.” It is “a barren region of rugged hills and valleys” (Earle, 30).

The Demeanor of Joh…

HOW COME THAT IDIOT IS RICH AND I AM NOT?

Here is why..,
That idiot is had an encounter with the spirit realm, an encounter with the Spirit of God not mammon. He's firstly  sure who is master is as this is the secret to a lasting financial life and destiny.

.....for it is in the office of God by His Spirit to give you the power to make wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18 emphasis added) but you have to remember Him(God).

SERVANTHOOD

2 Peter 1:1 – Simon Peter,  a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ.

The Apostle Peter’s first letter was a message of encouragement, instruction and admonition to the Christians who were scattered throughout Asia minor.

Even though he was part of Jesus' inner circle and was a pillar in the early church , he opens his letter by calling himself a servant.

This shows you that it doesn’t matter how long you have been a Christian or how mightily the Lord used to,  you are always a servant.
