IDENTIFY YOUR OPPORTUNITIES.

I should have rounded up the sub-topic: Opportunities but I am getting more than I can pen down which I believe is for you.
Favorable conditions abound I discussed with you last week for those who love God(their Strength) and those who operate in their calling (business wise) but these words alone cannot help identify opportunities when they come!

How will i identify/recognize Opportunities?

I want to tell you I am also learning a bunch as I'm penning down these words. I confess to you they are never the words of my head nor hands but pure inspirations of God!

Opportunities abound around you but they are always on disguise! How do I mean?

Gold in its crude is always in disguise so is Crude oil, So opportunities hide under troubles, trials and temptations. You can tell what it takes to extract crude and gold because I know you are aware of how these two invaluable natural resources are buries deep down in the ends of the earthen- So are your opportunities!

Favorable conditions do not birth favorable conditions, Unfavorable conditions does!- Oluwatobi Oshunbiyi.

Permit me explore this sub-topic with this biblical passage:
Daniel 2:1-49

Its not our Biblical exposition day so I'm be conscious of that.

In the passage above, the king had a dream which he forgot, and he called upon the magicians, astrologers, sorcerers and chaldeans to say the dream and interpret it but you can tell that is impossible!

How can I tell your dreams even if I can interpret it?

It was on and on till a decree was made in Verse 13 that they all will be killed, the wise men inclusive. The man Daniel identified his opportunity so fast, he made inquiries why the decree is so hasty from the king and went in speaking to the king asking for time(verse16).

Nugget 1: Opportunities are hidden beneath trials, troubles and temptations by nature, what you need is to identify them by making inquiries and subject them to time. Even gold and crude are subjected to time; refining and fractional distillation.

Nugget 2: Daniel went home and made this known to his companions(Verse 17).
Who are your companions? Who are your external Strength??
I discussed with you under weaknesses that you should avoid being threatened by your external strengths- those your weaknesses have attracted to you! They cannot take the glory nor credit, they will just be part of your success process speeding up the rate.

Nugget 3: when the two aforementioned are being put in place, results come.
Alas! The secret was revealed to Daniel in a Night vision. How much of the Night do you maximize?

Then secret(dream and interpretation) was revealed to the king and this made Daniel a great man(Verse 48). The king gave him many great gifts and made him ruler over the whole Province of Babylon.

To Identify your Opportunities:
(a) Be ready for the Opportunity, they come as challenges

(b) Make inquiries about what you see as an opportunity

(c) Do not be defensive about your external strengths- You are made to relate

(d) Use your Strengths(internal)- God and your gifts because you saw the opportunity, its you God will also reveal the secrets to.

(e) Opportunities are always solutions to eradicate problems. Apply what you have gotten(secrets) even in the un-favorable conditions to reveal the favorable- A great You!

Do not be scared to proffer the Solutions you have because that is the dream the world is looking for. Do remember you have got the strength too, both the Internal and External- Companions and business partners.

Good Morning Monday Digest Readers,
Happy New Month and have a nice week ahead.

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).

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.
