SWOT SERIES: STRENGTH!!

For the purpose of this study, I will be dealing with the internal factors first as when the Internal is settled the external is also.
The Internal factor comprises: the Strength and Weaknesses internal to the business/ project/ personality.
Today we'll be discussing Strength!!
Strength- Wordweb dictionary has series of meanings for the word Strength but I got interested in just two out of the six meanings for the purpose of this study.
(a) The property of being physically/ mentally strong
(b) The condition of financial success.

SWOT defines Strength- characteristics of the business/project/ personality that gives it an advantage over others.
With the above definitions I will like to discuss:

The Exaggeration:
Individuals especially young adults who venture into business/ projects  should learn how to avoid exaggerating when It comes to the area of strength- what they can do.
We live in the generation of people that believe they can do anything.
The truth is:
You're not made to do just anything but you can do everything.

The Scriptures said: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me"- Philippians 4:13
As a matter of fact, we are all embedded with gifts that can help/birth hyper- successful business/ projects/ personality but something must be our driving force: Strength!!( and this van be gotten from Christ!)

The Omini-potency of God is the Multi-potency of man!!

Without Christ Strengthening you- Your SWOT analysis is not worth an analysis because the business/ project/ personality isn't feasible.
Exaggeration is when you think you have the strength and you do not need Christ!!
Define what your Strengths are??
You can only do all thing's through Christ alone!

Strength  is an Internal factor, it comes from within.
Strength truly is an internal factor, it comes as a result of what comes from within.
One practical example of Christ's Strength can be found in the life of Elijah after he was threatened by Jezebel for slaining  the prophets of Baal. In the wilderness requesting for death, he slept and an angel touched him and fed him and laid him again. The process of waking him to Arise and eat happened the second time( because the journey was great for him).

The journey ahead of you is great too because you are destined to be great!!

Verse 8: and he arose and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of the meal 40 days and 40 nights unto Horeb the Mount of God. -I Kings 19:1-8.
For that business/ project/ personality you want to venture or has ventured into, what have you been fed with?
What do you assume to be your strength?
Just like Elijah, you have tried all the tricks you know for that kind of business/ project/ personality but now it's all threatening, you now feel like closing down the business?
I encourage you this morning- you can do it!
You are yet to discover your true strength, you are yet to be fed with the meal for that deal!

There's a meal for every deal.

To tap into your strength, you need to an
extra mile. In the scripture I used above, in verses 3-4: Elijah left his servant at Beer-sheba but he himself went a day journey into the wilderness before he met with the Angel that fed with the meal for the deal.

A lot of us make the mistake assuming our strengths to our work experiences, academic feats, professional certification and all, but the truth is when we plan and exclude God (the source of Strength) in your planning then you're set for struggling!
You need to leave all those things making you feel qualified and go after God that qualifies even the qualified!!

You are not made to do just anything in life! You don't have it all  but you have it for all!!

Here  are some few tips to what your Strength composition, those few things that place you at the advantage over others as a child of God:
1. Faith: We walk by faith and not by sight! 
What the world's SWOT analysis sees as Infeasible we see as Invincible!!  We see things through the eyes of God.

2. Wisdom: Its the principal thing! 
We have a promise of this even for anyone who lacks, God giveth it to all men liberally.
( James 1:5)

3. God is our Strength: who teacheth us to profit and leads us in the way that we should go.(Isaiah 48:17). we can never count losses because we are only taught to make profit.

4. We have the power to make wealth: the world may grow riches through their businesses but we are made to grow wealth! We have the power  but only a few of us operate the Covenant.

I hope to have you here next week,
Have a fulfilled 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.

DATING - WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS

Dating and Dates ( - going on dates) are two different things.
Dates are events where an individual goes out to meet people and know people. eg. A father and daughter going on a date.

Dating is form of romantic courtship typically between two individuals with the aim of assessing the other's suitability as a partner in an intimate relationship or as a spouse.
It is going on with someone intentionally checking to know if you have compatibility (emotionally, sexually, etc) with him/her with no boundaries, specificity or exclusivity!

The concept of dating is not Kingdom-oriented. There's no such things as "Christian Dating".
What then do we do instead of dating?
Do you know how to find your wife without dating?
Do you know how to found by your husband without dating?

DO NOT SEEK A SIGN!

2 KINGS 3:17 KJV For thus saith the LORD, Ye shall not see wind, neither shall ye see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, that ye may drink, both ye, and your cattle, and your beasts.

God's word to us is relevance and guiding light as to how God will have it be is that we do not seek a sign for this month's wonder!

1 Corinthians 1:22  For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom.

But,
Ye are Christ! (1 Corinthians 3:23)

You are the sign of the wonder, you are the miracle says the Lord.

Most  supernatural operation around our life's this month will not call for attention like the bones in the valley! (Ezekiel 37)

Therefore Be still and known that I am God (Psalm 46: 12)

Welcome to March!

TERRITORIAL RELEVANCE

The Garden of Eden in Genesis is not just a Story or History. It is our life to be lived.
- It is the system of God for Territorial Relevance cum Global Relevance!

The garden was God's first gift to the unfallen man(Adam) and also, every redeemed man.

 Though, after the fall of the man; thus the corruption of the earth, the system changed.

Joel 2:3
[3]A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.

The system changed to men going through The Wilderness experience first, before The Garden experience then True RELEVANCE!
- John the Baptist being the system, Jesus being the standard. You?
