EMPOWERED TO EMPOWER

TEXT: EPHESIANS 4: 11-12
Empowerment means to be given authority, to allow and to enable somebody to carry out a particular task or job. As God’s children we have been empowered in different ways, so that we can empower others. God created us and put seeds of greatness in each and every one of us, to that we can impart lives. He does not want us to be useful for ourselves alone, but to be useful to others.
The virtues He deposited in each of us are more than what we can use for ourselves alone. Ephesians 4:11-12 says God gave some to be Apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists and some to be pastors and teachers. To prepare God’s people for works of service, so the body of Christ may be built up. This verse buttresses the fact that God has empowered His children from the inception of the earth to occupy one place or the other. He is not an idle God; therefore He cannot be delighted to see His children idle.
Don’t underestimate yourself that you cannot impart lives, don’t think you have nothing to offer to your generation. Pray to God to open your eyes of understanding so that you will see where He wants you to function to impart your world. No matter how little you think you have, it will still be a breakthrough to those coming behind you.
You are a problem solver; you are a solution to somebody’s problem. Find that problem you can solve today, you need to add value to people’s life. God created you not to be blessed alone but to be a blessing to your generation (Genesis 12:2).

If you don’t take action; you may not be able to do exploit for God. The scripture says “These signs shall FOLLOW them that believe….. (Mark 16:17). If you stand still the signs would not manifest, because He says the signs shall “follow” this means that you need to move for the sign to follow you. Nothing moves until you move it. Stand up today; activate the great power of empowerment deposited in you and do exploit for God. Remember you are born to empower.
