Text : Dan. 11:32 Philp. 3:9-10
Introduction: It is a wonderful privilege to be part of the kingdom of God. Our faith in God has put us in a vantage position as heirs of salvation. We are bound to do exploits in life. 1Peter 2:9-10
Faith is vital to us as Christians, because it is the perfect expression of our confidence in God and His Word. When faith is motivated by the word of God, it become a living force for a living proof. Heb.10:23. When we know God and we please Him, we shall do great exploits. Doing exploits in the kingdom is impossible without faith. Faith is the determining factor of every man’s status in God’s kingdom.
Exploits connotes unusual accomplishment, it means striking or notable deeds, generational impacts, outstanding feats, breaking new grounds, scaling new heights, blazing the trails.
You are God’s choice for a dramatic turnaround !
Pathway to exploits
1. Have a genuine encounter with God
Genuine encounter with God will enable us to do exploits. Everything remains the same until you are saved. John 3:3 ; Heb,2:3. Not just be saved but to remain saved, not just going to church but have a genuine encounter with the Almighty God. If you are not a child of God, you have no capacity to understand the word of God, not to talk of knowing Him. Everyone needs salvation to escape from the harassment of darkness. Mk 4: 11,Mt.6:33;
2. Know your source and understand your make up
This is a determinant factor to a world of exploits. You must understand that, there is God’s DNA in your make, the moment you are saved. John 1:12 ; 2Cor. 5:17. If you are a son of God, you are far above, principalities and power. Ephesians 1:21. There is the grace and glory of God upon your life, therefore, He will not withhold anything from you. Your source has lots to do with your destiny. ISam 17: 34-35 ; ISam. 30:18-20;
3. Hunger for God
This means, having an insatiable desire to be in God’s presence at all time Ps 42: 1-2. It means doing things that will provoke divine presence. Dan 2 ; Dan 3
Praise commits God’s presence, which is the greatest pre-requisite to a life of great exploits. When God is available the enemy cannot triumph. 2Cor. 2:14 ; Psalm 22:3 ; 2Cor. 20:25-27. Every opportunity to praise God is your chance to silence the enemy.
5. Acquaint yourself with God
This is very important to us in order to do exploits. We must get connected with God and take instructions from Him. If it is God that is leading the way, we cannot miss the road, if it is God that is giving the instructions, we cannot miss the target. Job. 22:21-34;
To do exploits and enjoy the spoils of exploits, we need to be a person of intense prayers. God expects us to come before His presence at all times, mankind our request known unto Him. Mat.7:7-8 ; John 14:14. Prayer can break any barrier, prayer moves the hand that rules the world. Daniel overcame the conspiracy of his adversary in the land of Babylon as a result of purposeful ,fervent and result oriented prayers. Dan. 6:10 ,27 ; Acts 5;19,25 ; Acts 12:5,7-10.
Conclusion: There is the need to change our attitude, our orientation, and mentality. God has saved us into a life of great exploits, we cannot afford to operate in mediocrity any longer. We are here to do exploits, the Almighty God is with us. May you be divinely empowered to do great exploits in Jesus name.
