LITTLE BEGINNINGS – PART 1

I recently had a flash back of a growing christian (religious in a sense) who said that “I want to have a little beginning” . By this he meant that he wanted to start by working as a laborer, probably carry ponpon ( a local name for concrete), then move to selling biscuits and way through the ladder to become the president… Probably the type of the Goodluck Jonathan story, I presume. This sounds funny though, but there are people of this opinion or maybe not as extreme as this.

Like a lawyer will say, I put it to you that this opinion is not entirely true. Little beginning is relative. Today I will start with CAPACITY BUILDING… Beginnings, in our kingdom is dependent primarily on your capacity. Ephesians 3:20

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.

There is a clause there “according to the power that works in you”. The power there means the capacity you have built in your self, because the power of God is infinite, so it is the power you have in you that you will exhibit. If you can build your capacity to be faithful in little things like luke 16:10 said, “He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much” ,God will trust you with big things. You dont have to start life by carrying blocks, you just have to be faithful in obeying the word of God and any experience God brings your way, probably like being a floor chaplain in your school and if you are faithful in it he will make you a blessing to a million congregation… God bless you.

NEW BEGINNING

Today is the first day of a new month, I still remember the 1st day of January like it was yesterday, talk about time flying! Remember that some people started this year with you, but as a matter of fact they are no more….statistics prove that people die each day, as for me I say, I have not done anything to deserve this, I don’t know about you. Maybe you slept by taking drugs, but let me remind you that that drug did not wake you up.

So here is the gist: time is ticking! There is a purpose as to why you are alive today. Discover that purpose and take steps towards it. I for one am taking a step with this blog, have you gotten a God given idea, now is the time to start. Remember the parable of the talent, many of us have buried our God given talent, now is the time to seek God in prayers. Paul charged timothy in 2Timothy 1; 7 to stir up the gift of God in him.

Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the

gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.

There are seeds of greatness in you. Start by putting the deposits of God in you into use and see how it will multiply. Let me illustrate further with something that happened to me last year, few days to when we were to go home from school, I had to buy water several times from the buttery, when it was time to pack I was removing some things I had under the bed, only to discover that I had water under my bed, all the while when anyone asked me if I had water to spare my reply was NO. Many of us have hidden talents, like Paul said stir it up.
