And in all matters of wisdom and understanding about which the king examined them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers who were in all his realm.Daniel 1:20
We, who are custodians of the promise, are the chosen Heirs of God’s kingdom. We, standing in the authority and full status of our father in heaven, fully equipped with the holy ghost and power to represent and do his will here on earth. The scriptures in 1 peter 2: 9 says “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light”.
We are not denying that before we used to be in the darkness but now level has changed, status has changed. We have been transposed into God’s loving kingdom through his son Jesus Christ. We have been adopted by God and now partake of the inheritance we have in Christ. God has changed our names, and given us equal right in representing his glory by generously giving us the Holy spirit. Every believer having an equal measure of the Holy ghost, has the liberty to manifest its various giftings and capacities as they deem fit in line with the shared purpose of glorifying God. 1 Corinthians 12: 11 says, “But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.”
There’s therefore a greater force in us that empowers us to live the super-abundant kind of life. Being 10x better is not pride, it’s not based on our efforts but that which has been made available for us in Christ. This is the type of disposition we employ in all we do, at school, at work, in our community, in our relationships or family, we express the life of God in us. Papa Hagin shared how he was always a “D” student until he got imparted with eternal life and his performance in school skyrocketed. We have learnt also from our Pastor Dayo on how by the working of the Spirit in him,he’s able to discuss eloquently on various topics, this is what is available to every believer. We don’t give room for mediocrity or settle for the bare minimum, we have a culture of excellence and it is evident in all we do, yes all we do!
As you run your business, pursue your career, serve in any capacity or take up any role, seek to be 10x better, this is not selfish ambition, I am asking you to let loose the divine ability in you.
Finally, don’t let this scripture slip out of your consciousness, “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world”. (1 John 4:4)
