MFM Daily Devotional 22 May 2023 MESSAGE

Yesterday, we saw how paramount it is to commit our ways in career and business unto God if we must make headway. Today, we will push a bit further on how to make profits in God’s way. Today’s Fire Scripture shows that God does not waste resources. He invested so much in us to profit withal, according to 1 Corinthians 12:7.

In God’s kingdom and even in the secular world, wealth-making is not automatic. It takes a deliberate and intentional following of principles to make wealth. Every profit-making venture requires discipline, willingness and obedience to certain principles to work. Let us study some.

First, you must discover your talent. Everyone born of a woman has been blessed with one talent or the other. No one is born empty. However, some could not make a profit in life because they did not discover their unique talent. You need to find out what you are made for that can bring profit to you and God’s kingdom.

Second, you must deploy your gifts and talent. It is not enough to discover your talent; you need to engage them. Do not bury your talent like the foolish servant in the parable of talents (Matthew 25: 15-18). Your wealth is embedded in the use of your talent.

Third, you must be focused. Jack of all trades, they say, is a master of none. It may be pretty difficult to make profit when so many things are craving your attention at the same time. If you’re talented but not getting results, your problem may be lack of focus.

In addition to the foregoing, you must add value through your products or services. People will be willing to pay for your product or service if you create and add value.
I pray that God will release the spirit of excellence on you, in the name of Jesus.
