THE SPIRIT OF EXCELLENCE
There is something superior to better and that is best.
There were 120 princes that the King set over his state. They were the good boys.
He, however, had 3 presidents to oversee the 120, these were the better guys. Daniel was first amongst the three, he was the best.
I pray to the One who sent me, that very soon it will be said of my children, an excellent spirit is in this fellow.
Very soon, it would be said of you that, an excellent spirit dwells in you
In comparison, we have
The Good.Genesis 1:1-4
The Better.Genesis 1:31
The Best.Genesis 2:18
The Excellent.Daniel 6:1-3
When we talk about excellence, there are degrees of excellence.
One of the ways you know the secret of an excellent person is that it keeps getting better.
The spirit of excellence will come upon you tonight in Jesus name.
An example of an excellent person is Joseph. He kept growing from excellence to excellence, even when he was in prison.
In Genesis 39, Joseph was a Dominant Slave, but in Genesis 41:1-44, Joseph was prime Minister of Egypt: He was Dominant.
Elisha became dominant as a result of the double portion of the spirit he got. 2 Kings 2:9-15.
I pray for you tonight, the Almighty God will lay His hands on you.
Acts 9:10-22. After Paul's conversion, God sent a disciple to lay hands on him.
How will you know you have the spirit of excellence?
1. People who have the spirit of excellence are never satisfied with where they are; they always want to go higher; They always want more!
When we have an auditorium the size of Ibadan, then, we will be beginning.
When you have the spirit of excellence, you will never stand still. 2 Kings 4:8-17.
Elisha was a blessing to a widow, 2 Kings 4:5-7, 2 Kings 4:8-17. He was a blessing to a great woman. He didn't stop there, he went back to the mountain so as to be equipped enough to raise the dead son of the great woman.. 2 Kings 7, 2 Kings 13:14-21, Before Elisha died, he was already determining the future of his nation.
He wasn't a local government prophet.
Joshua 14:6-14. When Caleb met Joshua he asked for mountains. He didn't ask for ordinary ones, he asked for the mountains and the giants in them. Don't be satisfied with being average.
You can be dominant; You can be excellent.
Let your vision be so high that it will take only God for it to come to pass.
It is because your vision is so low that is why you can go to the house of God and joke. Forgive me, but my love for you has overwhelmed me that I want you all to be greater than me, Why must you (Child of God) insult God with a request like this Oh God, when I come next year let me come with a THIRD HAND CAR.
Has God stopped performing miracles?
Why must I come and be begging God for healing. When I was younger, my nickname was the tiger but now that tiger is baptized with the Holy Spirit. I used to cry whenever I came second in school. When I came to Jesus, I told God that I didn't want to be an ordinary Christian. I told God one particular night that if He wasn't going to give me power, He should take my life. God responded that night and caused an earthquake that was felt many in neighbouring towns.
Excellence for me isn't by title, it is by power! For how long are you going to be average? For how long are you going to be ordinary? The Almighty expects you to be so hot, that any witch that comes near you will be roasted!
Prayer: Father, I don't want be ordinary I want to be an excellent Christian. Release Your power upon me!!!
Receive the spirit of excellence. You will never be average again.
Receive the power to exercise dominion, you will be greater than your current status. God will promote and take you to greater heights, you will excel in Jesus Name.
