Excellence: What It Will Cost You

In today’s world where mediocrity is celebrated, living an excellent life might be quite a challenge. As a child of God, living an excellent life is icing on the cake.

Circumstances often times may want to hinder your attempt to live an excellent life but it is an achievable goal only if you truly have God in your life. An encounter with God makes all the difference. You may have seen and heard people being congratulated for their continual excellence and you have wondered how they do it even with tight schedules like everyone else.

Natural talents and occult divination are different from gifts that God gives. An excellent and talented unbeliever cannot go as far as a true believer who is gifted could go.

“And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar, Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from him. Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerer’s, and the Chaldeans, for to shew the king his dreams. Therefore, they came and stood before the king. And the king said unto them, I have dreamed a dream, and my spirit was troubled to know the dream”

Look at the life of Joseph; how circumstances around him sought to beat him down. Notice how he continued to excel despite the rocks being hauled in his direction by even his family. He could not achieve that if he didn’t hold on to God.

“And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his wife, which she spoke unto him, saying, After this manner did thy servant to me; that his wrath was kindled.  And Joseph’s master took him, and put him into the prison, a place where the king’s prisoners were bound: and he was there in the prison. But the LORD was with Joseph, showed him mercy, and gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison. And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph’s hand all the prisoners that were in the prison; and whatsoever they did there, he was the doer of it. The keeper of the prison looked not to anything that was under his hand; because the LORD was with him, and that which he did, the LORD made it to prosper”

Genesis 39:19-23
