BE THE BEST GOD WANTS YOU TO BE TODAY!



“Woe to you who are complacent in Zion…” 

Amos 6:1 (NIV)



As part of being diligent, and immovable you must intentionally continue in what the Lord has tasked you to do.
God didn’t design you to have one-time success.
It is not enough to be diligent yesterday and complacent today.
Complacency is self-satisfaction, which will make you assume you have arrived.
It leads to lukewarm and sluggishness.
Most people become complacent and think they have arrived by how they compare themselves with others.
 
Being ahead of others in spirituality and results doesn’t mean you have reached the finish line.
 
”For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.” 2 Corinthians 10:12 (NKJV)
 
Don’t stop halfway to boast about yesterday’s results.
There are people who only dwell and boast about their past glory.
It is important to acknowledge every good thing you’ve achieved.
However, when all you have to show to the world tomorrow is what you achieved yesterday, then you wasted today.
 
Yesterday’s success is to inspire you to do more today, and that becomes your testimony and inspiration for tomorrow.
Your relevance today is not in the things you used to do and achieve.
How have you built on what you’ve done and achieved?
What more have you done since yesterday?
 
Apostle Paul did not press on because of past glory. He pressed on towards the goal. Goals are not in your past. Goals are ahead of you.
If you reached yesterday’s goal, then set new goals and start working towards them today.
How you succeeded yesterday, is not enough for your success today.
You must grow deeper in knowledge and understanding. You must understand the things you have to put aside from yesterday and the things you must carry along today.
 
You must know the new things you need to add to what you already have, to achieve more today.
 
It is not how many hours you used to pray. It’s how many hours you pray now. It is not how you used to reach out to win souls. It’s how many souls you are winning now.
 
It is not how many days you used to fast and pray. It’s how you do them better now. It is not how many Churches you have planted and helped. It’s how many new churches you’re planting today.
It is not how many people you used to raise for the Lord. It’s how many people you are raising now.
It’s not how you used to give into kingdom assignments. It’s how much more grace you have received to give today.
 
It is not how you used to be consistent with ministerial instructions. It’s how consistent you are today in ministry.
 
Not the testimonies you used to see in your life. However, the more testimonies you are seeing now.
Beloved, you must be committed to making progress today.
PRESS ON! BE THE BEST GOD WANTS YOU TO BE TODAY!
DON’T EVER STOP!
 
“No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.” Philippians 3:13-14 NLT
 
SHALOM!
DIG DEEPER
(1 Corinthians 9:24-27; Revelation 2:4; Revelation 3:1-22; Hebrews 6:12; Joshua 14:6-15)
 
WE PRAY
We pray that we won’t trade our fervency to do more for the Lord with anything. We take grace to press on to the finished line as the Lord has determined.
 
BIBLE READING IN THE YEAR 2023
Psalm 111
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS:
– I don’t boast in the past.
 
– I press on towards the goal.
 
– I achieve new goals set before me by the Lord.
 
– I celebrate yesterday’s success but i don’t dwell there.
 
– I press on to produce more fruits today.
 
– Everyday is a new season to achieve new goals.
 
– I don’t stop here.
 
Oh Hallelujah!!!
