PLATFORMS FOR MULTIPLICATION
Text: Matthew 6:33

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

How much is your investment in God’s kingdom worth? God does not owe and no matter how big a man’s investment into the Kingdom may be, He is capable of paying back.

John 6:5-13 tells us of a young boy who saw an opportunity to investment into God’s kingdom with his five loaves of bread and two fishes. After he turned all to Jesus to use, it is most likely he went home with the twelve baskets that were left behind. I am of the opinion that he must have begun a bakery business that same day.

How about Peter who let out his ship for Jesus’ use? The result was that a night of toiling without result was overturned with net breaking harvest (Luke 5:4-6). God will never return whatever you give out for His use the same, the return is always bigger and better than its initial state.

REFLECTION FOR TODAY:
God will never return whatever you give out for His use the same.

PRAY:
Lord, help me to partner with You all that I have and all that I am in Jesus’ name.

RELEASE YOUR MENTAL CAPACITY 2
Text: 3 John 1:2

“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

How often do you engage your mind? The level to which you develop and engage it goes a long way to determine how productive you’ll become in life. Today’s Scripture tells us that there is a direct correlation between our prosperity in life and that of our mind.

Imagine Joseph, how he was able to preserve food items for a whole country so that while others were in famine, Egypt was in plenty (Gen 41:46-49). When Laban would have rendered Jacob empty, it was the productive use of Jacob’s mind that saved him and gave him an overnight wealth (Gen 31:4-10).

You and I can get all we want if only we’ll engage our mind. Where we are stocked in life is the point where we stop engaging our mind. The difference between the successful and the poor is nothing but the productive use of the mind. Even if opportunities are not forthcoming, you can create one by engaging your mind.

REFLECTION FOR TODAY:
Our difference is not in our complexion or sex but our mental engagement.

PRAY:
I am delivered from every mental blockage hindering my productivity in Jesus’ name.

RELEASE YOUR MENTAL CAPACITY
Text: 3 John 1:2

“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

One of God’s best gifts to man is the mind. 2 Tim 1:7 says “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” Embedded in the mind is the capacity to think creatively. Part of your redemptive package is a sound mind!

God is our Creator and because He made us like Himself, we have the capacity to make things happen also. To some people, their inability to use their mind creatively is the reason for their stagnancy in life. One of God’s ways of answering prayers is that He deposits ideas in us but if we don’t engage the mind, we may not profit from those ideas.

Enough of negative thoughts, positive thinking births positive happenings. There is no single way of doing anything; creatively, you can chart a better method. What you don’t have is not your problem but your inability to engage your mental capacity to produce what you desire.

REFLECTION FOR TODAY:
How often do you engage your mind?

PRAY:
Father, help me to utilise my mind productively from now in Jesus’ name.
