24 HOURS WILL NEVER BE ENOUGH FOR YOU IF YOU ALLOW THE DAY TO PLAN YOU.
EXCELLENCE WILL BRING YOU OUT OF WHERE WICKED PEOPLE KEPT YOU.
YOUR EXCELLENCE IS MORE EVANGELISTIC THAN YOUR UTTERANCE.
IT’S AN ABOMINATION FOR SOMEONE WHO DOES NOT KNOW GOD TO INSIST ON QUALITY THAN THE ONE WHO KNOWS GOD.
FOR THE PAST TWENTY TO TWENTY-FIVE YEARS OF MY LIFE, BY HIS MERCIES, EVERY DIME THAT ENTERS MY HANDS AND THAT GOES OUT OF MY HANDS IS ACCOUNTED.
YOUR EXCELLENCE MAKES IT EASY FOR GOD TO PLACE YOU ON TOP.
-Pastor Paul Enenche at Dunamis International Gospel Centre on ‘RELEASE, RECOVERY AND REPLICATION THROUGH EXCELLENCE‘ at Power Communion Midweek Service, Glory Dome.
Lift your right hand, do you feel His Presence?
Thank You for a night like this, we worship You Lord in Jesus Precious Name.
Wave your hands and give Him the praise for a night of encounter.
Anything that is a stranger to your body, anything that does not belong to your life, anything that was not planted originally by God, everything that is a stranger to your body dies to it’s roots now in the Name of Jesus.
So shall it be in Jesus Precious Name.
Pardon me to break protocol, I am preaching and I am meant to be on the word but when the devil gets in the way, we knock him out first and then we go on ahead.
Anything that is not of God in your body, whatever is growing whether it is a fibroid, a breast lump, whatever it is that is growing; a virus, a bacteria that is not meant to be the normal body system, they are cursed to their roots and they are dead at their roots in the Name of Jesus.
Take your seat in the Presence of the Lord.
RELEASE, RECOVERY AND REPLICATION THROUGH EXCELLENCE.
We have as an objective tonight: Understanding the power of excellence to produce release, recovery and replication.
There are four things I will like to say by way of introduction, things that we said during the Sunday service.
THINGS TO NOTE:
- Excellence is a critical requirement for successful living.
Excellence is a critical asset of human lives and destinies.
- Excellence is a responsibility of Christianity.
It’s a part of the Christians’ duty to excel. Matthew 5:16.
You are not permitted to be called the son of your Father until you are shining. It’s part of your duty to shine as a Christian. It’s a responsibility of Christianity to be outstanding.
- Excellence is a department of righteousness and Godliness.
It’s a department of God’s holiness.
The summary of Heaven is beauty and excellence. It’s a department of righteousness and God-likeness (Godliness). Proverbs 12:26.
What is the difference between the righteous and his neighbor? Is it the carrying of Bible? No! Is it speaking in tongues? Not necessarily.
Is it attendance to Church? No!
What is the difference between the righteous and his neighbor? Excellence.
You know that this person is righteous and the other one is unrighteous because this one is excellent and insist on quality and the other one is a mediocre; anything goes with him.
So, it’s an abomination for an unrighteous person to have more sense of excellence than a righteous person.
It’s an abomination for someone who does not know God to insist on quality than the one who knows God.
Prove that you know God by being more excellent than your neighbor.
In your practice; you run a school? Let it be more excellent. You have a Taxi car business? Let it be more excellent. You have a tailoring shop? Let it be more excellent. You have a barbing salon? Let it be more excellent than that of your neighbor.
Your excellence is more evangelistic than your utterance.
The level of quality you display, the level of standard you maintain can preach the gospel to the sinner more than what you are saying.
- Excellence gives God the license to facilitate the eminence of His people.
Excellence makes it easy for God to place you on top.
That is, God will place you on top with nobody complaining. He will place you on top with nobody murmuring.
That was what God did when He saw Daniel, He took Daniel and placed him on top, where we read in Daniel 6:1-5. They wanted to find a fault with Daniel but they could find nothing because an excellent Spirit was upon him.
When you operate in mediocrity, your prayers are long but when you operate in excellence, you pray short prayers and answers are drastic.
Before this month is over, somebody will be placed somewhere that will shock yourself, shock your friends and shock your loved ones.
You are saying Amen, say a louder Amen.
I was very very rugged when I was on the campus, I am still very very rugged but if the ruggedness of that time remained in so many ways, maybe if I come to Church, I will scatter everybody out to go to the mission field.
When I was the Medical Students’ Fellowship President of the University I attended, we went for a national conference.
When we came for that conference, everybody was given a slot; “you do this, you do that, you do this”. And my slot was to lead a five minutes prayer and then by the time that five minutes prayer was led, within the first one minute the house was aflame, by the time the microphone was dropped under five minutes, even the devil felt that a prayer was prayed.
When it was time to elect a president, it was a unanimous decision, “who will be? “
See him here, it is clear, why will you be asking for who will be the next president, see him there, unanimously pointed.”
It will make it easy when you stand out in what you do.
The reason why there is murmuring in this country and in the various countries of the world, especially in our own is that average people are placed ahead of excellent people.
One of the saddest things I saw was cut-off points that give people admission into higher Institutions.
“If you are from this State, your cut-off point is 35, if you are from that State, your cut-off point is 85′, because people from your place have ‘brain’ and so there is a lot of competition, so your own is 85.
From this place people don’t go to school, so let’s encourage them to go to school, the cut-off is 35 and you are going to study the same course?
And you graduate and you came out with a second class or a first-class and this one came out with a third class and you went to the same Civil Service and they placed him on top of you. On account of Quota system, it is called ‘Mediocrititis’ – it is an inflammatory disease.
So everything is just upside down, the person under knows more than the person on top and he wants to correct the person on top, he can’t correct him.
When you give God excellence, He gives you prominence.
When you give God excellence, He gives you eminence.
- SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE WHO EXPERIENCED A RELEASE BY EXCELLENCE.
A. Joseph was released into his future by excellence.
Joseph was released into his future at the frequency of excellence.
When all the magicians in Egypt were brought to interprete the nightmare of Pharaoh, none could interprete it and Joseph was the one who interpreted it more than all of them, he had the answer that nobody had and that released Joseph into the palace.
Joseph reached where he was meant to reach by doing better than his contemporaries.
B. David was released from the wilderness into the palace on the platform of excellence.
1 Samuel 16:17-21
David left the wilderness into the palace on the platform of excellence.
You can move from where you are, to where you want to be on the platform of excellence.
You travel from your position into your destination on the vehicle of excellence.
C. Daniel was released into the world of perpetual relevance on the platform of excellence.
A span of over 71 years in government service on the platform of excellence.
Excellence is key to perpetual relevance. People may hate you but you become perpetually relevant if you are excellent.
- SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE WHO EXPERIENCED RECOVERY BY EXCELLENCE.
Excellence is key to recovery.
a. Joseph regained his liberty through the display of quality/excellence.
Joseph lost liberty, became a prisoner and how did he regained his liberty by the same process through which his destiny was released, through the display of quality.
When you produce excellence, no prison door can remain locked against you.
Excellence will bring you out of where wicked people kept you. Somebody say Amen, somebody say a louder Amen.
Say, I am coming out.
- The wedding in Cana.
The restoration of the wine happened on the platform of excellence.
First of all, we saw the display of excellence by the arrangements of the water pot.
The water pots were not scattered, they were set.
You know that order is a department of excellence. Every time you see a man or woman who is excellent, life is orderly.
Many of us the reason why our life is where it is, is because they’re predicable, things are so scattered.
John Wesley had a schedule that was as rigid as the sun.
They filled it to the brim, that is attention to detail and that is another department of excellence.
When you mix order to attention to details, you get excellence.
Where excellence is found, abundance is inevitable.
If I tell my wife to give me a glass of water, if she brings the glass of water and it is not filled to the brim, I will tell her to fill it. The reason is, so that I can account for what I drank.
I have a surgical way of eating rice.
By the time I am done, you won’t find one grain of rice on the other side.
While other people, by the time they finished eating, it is like chicken walked on the ground.
Many of us, our failures in life are in minor details.
But I believe that everything these people did had implications.
Please I am not asking you to eat rice like that, don’t put your life under pressure.
- SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE WHO EXPERIENCED REPLICATION BY EXCELLENCE.
- The feeding of the multitudes.
- The multiplication of disciples in the early Church.
It’s not every situation of stagnation that is an attack of the enemy, many times, stagnation may be a product of disorder.
When a person’s life is in disarray, stagnation is easy.
Disorder brings shortage. Nothing is ever enough where there is disorder.
- Embrace the culture of excellence.
Refuse the life of compromise, conformity, and mediocrity.
Refuse to settle where the majority of people have settled.
Refuse to be comfortable with average so that you don’t die with an average life.
- Avoid the life of disorder- embrace order. Order your life’s schedule; don’t let the day plan your life, plan your day.
24 hours will never be enough for you if you allow the day to plan you.
Don’t let life plan you, plan your life. Don’t let the day order you, order your day.
Order your finances.
Everything that enters my hand; there is a percentage that is for the tithe, there is a percentage that is given to the poor and the less privilege, there is a percentage that goes in for free-will offering, there is a percentage that goes in for Kingdom assignments like evangelism and project, there is a percentage that goes in for my Prophet and Priest, there is a percentage that goes in for my family, there is a percentage that goes into the warehouse.
So by the time, the month is beginning, offering for the last day of the month is set.
For the last twenty to twenty-five years of my life, by His mercies, every dime that enters my hands and every dime that is going out is accounted.
One million entered your hands in one thousand times that you are not aware of, you just lost a billion.
One thousand entered your hands in one thousand times that you were not aware of, you just lost a million naira.
Nothing is never enough where there is disorder. It doesn’t matter how much your father left for you, it doesn’t matter the inheritance that was left for you.
1 Corinthians 14:40.
When we got this land, we were not stranded because by virtue of order the pull that would finance what was needed was on ground.
The Church wasn’t aware, nobody ever told the Church about it.
When we bought the first land, that is our Area 1 Church, the whole of it came out of the reserved.
I see God changing somebody’s life.
- Pay attention to details-
“little hinges swing big doors”.
Mega differences are made out of minor details.
You can make a mega difference in your generation by paying attention to minor details.
I read a story where a locomotive was stranded, and they realized that there was a little fly in the engine of the locomotive. When the fly was removed, the locomotive began to move.
I knew a pastor many many years ago, this guy was connected to people like Kenneth Hagin and so on.
He said to his congregation then, ” some of you are asking what I do with your money, I eat it”.
Number 1, what he was talking about is wrong.
When he was talking all those things, we were not Pastors then.
You know, there are things you see, you learn what to do and you learn what not to do.
I have been preaching from the scratch of this ministry, I have not gotten a tie from the offering of this ministry.
Our children passed through Destiny Christian Academy, we are the first to pay school fees.
It’s Church school and not Pastor’s school.
We pay school fees for other people’s children including some staff, we have never been reminded about school fees once.
You can wear coat and not know how to talk, you have an upside-down operations.
There is something we call gross anatomy, Histology.
When you place two livers and want to do some analysis, on the surface they may have no difference but when you do further details, you will find out the differences.
Until you pay attention to details, you are not paying attention to your destiny. Don’t walk pass the paper that you saw on the road, pick it.
Distinction in life is a function of attention to details.
I will like the staff of the Church and every other person to go through this message again, until we look like Him in quality and excellence.
