MINOR PLATFORMS BIRTH MAJOR PLATFORMS
A lot of us are waiting for major platforms to manifest, but are treating with levity, our present minor platforms. That mobile phone in your hand is a platform. Use it to influence and bless people. Use it to brand your products and services. As a preacher, use it to preach the truth. Until you maximize impact in minor platforms, the door to major platforms will not open. Why? No one is willing to risk their platforms for untested people. It was one of my Facebook live video that opened the door to my first major TV invitation where my message was broadcast live to millions of people around the world in 2017.
The owner of the TV station just called me, and asked me to come and speak to his global audience. I thought it was a small thing until my face was broadcast to millions of people across Asia, Europe, South America and co. And that's exactly how God operates. A lot of us are professional minor platforms wasters. As a preacher, you won't prepare your messages well because you are only preaching to 10 people.
A man of God told me few years back, "never allow the crowd to determine the quality of your message", and it stuck to me. I preach to 10 people like if I am speaking to 1million people. For some of us, our Facebook pages are places for gossips, attacks, abuse and co. You don't know that most global employers now view Facebook pages as part of their recruitment policies. In fact, the US and Canadian immigration agents now view Facebook pages to ascertain the kind of values people hold. Some of us are "professional platform wasters". Some are waiting to be billionaires before they begin to help people. You want to run a major charity organization, giving billions to poor people? Start by giving tokens to the poor people in your neighborhood.
Like I have repeatedly said, "you cannot kill Goliaths in the open when you have not killed lions in the private". Go and ask David!. Ecclesiastis 9:10 NLT, says, "whatever you do, do well". Start maximizing impact in that your small platform, and watch how the door to bigger platforms will open. When you chat with people privately, pour values into them. When you meet ordinary people, pour values into them. When you are employed by very small, peasant organizations, treat them as if you are being employed by Microsoft. Smaller platforms are always God's opportunities for you to practice ahead for major platforms.
If you fail in minor platforms, it is certain you will fail in major platforms. Jesus once said, "if you're unfaithful in what is another man's, who will commit what is yours into your hands"?. Start maximizing your influence in minor platforms, and watch God set you up for major platforms. Platforms birth platforms.
