Are you VALUABLE?
Happy New Week to YOU! I am hoping for a great week filled with blessings, Favour, and breakthroughs in the mighty name of Jesus! Amen….
When I woke up this morning, after my usual prayers, something came to my mind, which was, Are you valuable? I asked myself immediately: Hey! What do you have that will make people look for you? What do you have that people would sacrifice anything to give it out to you?
The Bible says in the book of Mathew 13:44-46, “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure that a man discovered hidden in a field. In his excitement, he hid it again and sold everything he owned to get enough money to buy the field.
Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant on the lookout for choice pearls. When he discovered a pearl of great value, he sold everything he owned and bought it!
Take a few minutes to ask yourself this question: Am I VALUABLE? What do I have in me that would make people willing to sell everything they have to search for me? Is there something in me that would command respect from people? Whatsoever makes you valuable, automates instant respect from people around you.
Now, let’s try something! Who are the people that look for you? The poor? The rich? or Everyone?
You need to ask yourself, what is inside of me that would make only the poor look for me? What is inside of me that makes only the rich look for me? What is inside of me that would make the world look for me?
Let me tell you a SECRET… No one is stingy; you get things from people based on the VALUE you make available to them! Do you know people give out exotic cars as gifts? Do you know people give houses as gifts? Do you know people buy expensive stuff to give out as gifts? When you offer unique value, nothing would be too big for even the stingiest of person to give to you!
Proverbs 31:10 says, Who can find a virtuous and capable wife(valuable woman)? She is more precious than rubies. A woman is respected by her husband when She is valuable. Aside loving Her, He would cherish her when there is something unique she brings to the table. How to know the Will of God.
How can I be Valuable, you may ASK?
To be valuable, you need to seek God with all your heart. You need the help of God for Him to breathe in you His uniqueness! What makes a man valuable is God’s uniqueness. When you have what others don’t have, you will cause many to look for you. God is the one that deposits value in a man. It’s only God that drops in a man a unique gift that makes him highly valuable( every look would look for him).
Joseph was made valuable through his gifting by God! After interpreting the DREAM to Pharoah, the Bible recorded in the book of Genesis 41: 38; So Pharaoh asked his officials, “Can we find anyone else like this man so obviously filled with the spirit of God?” ( Someone who is highly valuable).
Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has revealed the meaning of the dreams to you, clearly no one else is as intelligent or wise as you are. You will be in charge of my court, and all my people will take orders from you. Only I, sitting on my throne, will have a rank higher than yours.”
Joseph was lifted from the Prison to the palace because God placed in him a gift that could not be found in any man. He was highly valuable. How Valuable are you?
Don’t start this week by not asking God for help. Pray fervently to God to place in you something that would make everyone look for you. When you are valuable, you will emanate the glory of God. As I conclude, ask yourself this question again; Am I valuable?
