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.

Lets move on; The Apostle Paul speaks of the variety of spiritual gifts : “Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. . . . But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will” (I Corinthians 12:4–11).

DISCERNING THE MOVE OF GOD

Acts 2:17 [17]And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams God wants to move again and He needs a lot of vessels. God is not trying to repeat the same thing. He does not fail so He does not repeat. He only uses a familiar operation; a familiar move to men to progress the birth of The revival. Christianity(The Sphere of Religion) cannot export and empty itself into other spheres of influence, Men have to be exported into these spheres and the only way men will be exported is when we discern what God is trying to do and position ourselves for these moves. Our generation has to understand the synchronization between the Cyclical and the Acyclical move of God. We need to understand how these dimensions sync into each other to birth the revival.

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 go
