Topic: It Is Inside You [Daily Sunday February 11, 2018]
“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:” 2 Peter 1:3 (KJV)
All that pertains to life and godliness has been given to you. It is inside you. All that God had to do was to put it there and your part is to recognize it and appreciate it. The communication of your faith becomes effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing inside you. That is your own assignment! If you fail to recognize it, nothing happens. When Elisha said to the widow woman, what do you have in your house? The woman only remembered a pot of oil. When Elisha said go borrow vessels, he was saying to her, let me open your eyes because what you need is in your house. In other words, don’t let the environment dictate to you. Your environment will tell you it won’t work. Shut down and just obey my instructions. And she began to pour and oil began to flow and she could pay her debt and live off the rest.
Gideon also never realized that he had it inside him. God came to him and said, “the Lord is with you thou mighty man of valour.” Gideon was still wondering, is he talking to me. God said to go in this thy might. In other words, you have something inside you. And Gideon became the man that blew the trumpet and the entire city followed him. This was a man that was hiding; he didn’t know it was inside him. It took a prophet to let him know it was there.
As a prophet, I come to let you know today, that you have what it takes to shake your world. You have what it takes to succeed and to do exploit. I challenge you to put it to work. You will not die unsung. The world will hear from you.
