Topic: The Power Of Extra Effort! [Tuesday, November 14, 2017]
Basic Scriptures: 2 Kings 9:11-25
Vs. 24 of today’s Basic Scripture is a signpost for strength and determination: “And Jehu drew a bow with his full strength and smote Jehoram between his arms and the arrow went out at his heart….” The Lord’s emphasis today is on, “Jehu drew a bow with his “FULL STRENGTH.” This is the last quarter of this year and most people are no longer serving the Lord with their full strength! Most people begin the year well, run weak midway and dry up in the end!
That’s not your portion! FULL STRENGTH also means, “more than the normal strength.” It means THE EXTRA STRENGTH, the extra prayer, the extra giving, extra study, extra work, etc, you put in. Most people are using their normal strength and not their FULL STRENGTH. As 2017 ends and 2018 begins, do that EXTRA research on your job, business and ministry. The extra effort can be the difference between success and failure, between winners and mediocre (Second rate or just average people).You can read your Bible a little bit more (extra effort) as the year ends. STOP PANICKING THAT ANOTHER YEAR IS ENDING! You can pray and fast for more flow and presence of the Holy Ghost anointing in your life and ministry.
Pastors should have extra services! Normal services stimulate normal growth! Extra knowledge above your colleagues can distinguish you in your life and ministry. Search more and work more! Go the extra mile with someone (extra patience). Don’t live within your means. Don’t stay where you are! Associate higher! Talk to people more successful and smarter than you are! Read their books! Talk with people more spiritual than you! Read about them! You can have more than you ‘ve got because you can become more than you are! Do something extra as the year ends! Pray now!
