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.

THE REVIVAL AND THE MOVES OF GOD

Genesis 2:4-6
[4]These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
[5]And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
[6]But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

God had not caused it to rain upon the earth because there was no man. God is helpless without a man and will never be able to send down His rain(move) on earth without a man.

Thus, there are two elements that makes up the move of God:
1. A man
2. Territories

What is the Move of God?
The move of God is God moving men through roles in His agenda which births events called Revivals.
A revelation of Alignment!

Kingdom advancement is territorial and not just personal. The value system of the kingdom must translate from you and be reflected in your…

SPIRITUAL INTERACTION 3

1 Corinthians 2:4-5
[4]And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
[5]That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

...the demonstration of the Spirit (fellowship) and of power (partnership)!
You become an able man(a man of the spirit) when you have these two. When you truly pay the price for fellowship, you cannot but experience partnership.

Download Spiritual Interaction 1 & 2 to understand fellowship and the levels in Intimacy(Koinonia)
Partnership is the ministry of the spirit not the ministry of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a Spirit and that makes Him part of the ministry of the spirit.

It is true that the Holy Spirit is the governor of all spirits but there are other spirits you will have to participate with to produce results. There are rankings in the spirit and spirits don't break their ranks!

Spiritual Interaction has to do with interaction with s…

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 …

THE MINISTRIES OF MEN 2

Romans 11:29
[29] For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. 

Notice the word "GIFTS" here is plural, while the word "CALLING" being singular.
There is only one calling!
There is no higher or lesser call than the other.

Although, this does not disregard the fact that there are some people specially reserved and set in the body as offices. This calling is to grow into the stature of the Christ.  It was the Lord who went down beyond and gave gifts unto men.

Remember, the Law of giving;
YOU CAN NOT GIVE WHAT YOU DO NOT HAVE!
And so, Christ himself being the embodiment of the 5-fold gave of himself. In following Christ, as you keep growing through into the template of the Christ - in maturity and stature, you will begin to experience the 5-fold (apostolic, prophetic, evangelical, pastoral, and teaching) ministry in your life.

The gifts are for all to profit withal, it is not the inheritance of any man.
We do not just have gift; we are all gifts and on the b…
