THE MEAL FOR EVERY DEAL II.



                                                         MONITORING.
Monitoring (according to word-web dictionary): the act of observing something and sometimes keeping a record of it.
To observe is: Quick to notice; showing quick and keen perception

I will like to start by saying: ‘Every information is a product of observation’ and that means when we fail to observe we fail to be informed - and definitely we become deformed.- Monitoring!

A deal according to the picture I attached last week as that thing you find yourself doing with zeal creating a vision of a potential only you can feel.
What is that thing that takes up your heart? What is that thing that gives you a vision of a brighter tomorrow? That’s the deal you need a meal for. The first meal we want to discuss today is Monitoring.
There is a way monitoring works and I’ll take you through that it in some minutes. 

I told you earlier: ‘Every Information is a product of Observation (Monitoring) but it takes:
Information + Observation (Monitoring) = Product.

I am trying to calculate this out: You need to monitor i.e. get all information around you to get information for yourself.

 What can I do? Where can I do it? When can I do it? Why do I want to do it? How do I do it best? How does it positively impact others and myself?

Questions like this birth series of Information which are very important. No wonder the scriptures said; ‘My people perish for lack of knowledge(Hosea 4:6a) 
[Knowledge here is synonymous to Information]
 
Now when the information is gotten, you need monitoring to yield results/product.

Let’s gist this scripture below to buttress my point.
Matthew 13:44-46.
44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.  
45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: 
46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

If you follow closely you’ll discover the scripture is presenting a 2-sided story here, these 2 men through monitoring discovered some invaluable treasures which we earlier described as Information. It is obvious they were looking for some great things......... Here is what I mean.... You do not just set out to monitor, you must be out looking for something. How great is it?

I hereby define Monitoring define as the act of ...  Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: (Mathew 7:7).
 Monitoring is the act of finding what you seek.

In the scriptures above, the first man and the second both observed the presence of a treasure(hidden) and a goodly pearl through monitoring respectively!
What you need won’t just fall in your hands like some young adults dream you need to observe, monitor and seek them!
Armed robbers will never forget a bag of money for you to stumble upon neither will a mad man/woman come give you directional, it’s absurd!

God doesn’t work in these ways.

Even our God that calleth those things which be not as though they were’ (Romans 4:17) had to work out creation for 6 days and rest a day (Genesis 2:2)

These men through monitoring both saw these invaluable items.... the first man had to discover it in its hidden place while the other man discovered it through its worth. Two things to watch out for!
Monitoring made them know they were both invaluable assets. Definitely they must have stumbled upon some series of treasures and pearls for them to know the value of what they saw.
They sold all they both had to buy what they needed to get what they discovered.

Monitoring is sacrificing all for a deal and taking actions when needed. The actions we will continue in our next edition.

What are you ready to part for your Path?

Good Morning,

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 MYSTERY OF HIS PRESENCE

Have you ever wondered why God will not honour the words of certain men and honour that of another?
Have you ever thought about something  like this or experienced this:
The Bible says .....You shall lay your hands upon the sick and they will recover(Mark 16:18b). You laid your hands and instead of a recovery, you found a discovery – that the man is not healed and the sickness/disease has back-fired. This can be painful......  until a young man comes and at the sound of his voice, the infirmity flees.
Has this ever bothered you?
Or that a man speaks into existence instantly what you have been begging God for with fasting and prayers.




I bring you a mystery today!

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 got were from the…

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 …
