Topic: Influencing The World By Excellence And Authority [Seeds of Destiny 9 May 2019 Devotional]
It takes authority to affect authority; it takes influence to influence influencers.
SCRIPTURE: And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. Isaiah 2:2
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It takes authority to affect authority; it takes influence to influence influencers.
Excellence is God’s ordained platform for the promotion of His children to the high places of the earth. The destiny of God’s people is a destiny of excellence, authority and influence. The Children of God are destined for the top and not the pit; the mountain is our place not the valley (Isaiah 2:2).
According to our anchor Scripture, children of God are destined for establishment at the top. This means, God has destined His children to be at the top in any field of human endeavour – be it science, politics, industry, economics, agriculture, education etc.
God has designed it this way so that the distinction of the Church would provoke the attention and attraction of the world. God’s plan is for our impact to produce evangelistic results. His Purpose for us is to take us to a point where we will become wonders to our generation.
Now, one reason God establishes His people in authority and excellence is so they can influence other people in authority, especially those who do not know God. You know, it takes authority to affect authority; it takes influence to influence influencers.
It is easier for a Christian governor to preach to a fellow governor than for his aide to preach to him. God wants to raise wealthy people from the Church who can preach and influence other wealthy people to follow God.
Beloved, to live in influence and authority, you must develop deep personal devotion to God. It is your devotion to God that will determine your distinction by God. Your relationship with God must be serious for you to have a serious future with God.
REMEMBER THIS: It takes authority to affect authority; it takes influence to influence influencers.
- Decide to identify with God publicly; do not hide your identity in God.
- Be devoted to God in prayer and in studying of the Word
PRAYER: O Lord, I declare that my days of mediocrity are over. I am going to the top level where I belong. I am a person of influence, excellence and authority that God is raising in this end time, in the Name of Jesus.
