Our Daily Manna For December 27th, 2017
Theme – How To Duplicate Or Reproduce Success
Basic Scripture: 1 King 19:9-16
Welcome to today’s devotional! There is a general success law: If you want to be successful, do what successful people do. If you do not want to be a failure, observe unsuccessful people and avoid doing what they do.
God told Elijah: “Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abel-me-Holah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room” (1 Kings 19:16b). Elisha took over from Elijah! Eleazer took over form Aaron (Num. 20:28)! Jesus was duplicated by the 12 disciples! Joshua duplicated Moses and God wants His investment in you you to be passed to others long after you are gone because nobody lives forever! This principle applies to general life, ministry and business. To duplicate the success of an individual, organization, do the following:
1. Identify the specific skill or behavior/result you want to produce. What is it that you admire in the person or organization?
2. Locate a specific individual or organization, in which the quality you desire is found.
3. Observe in detail and capture in writing, what was done and how the individual or organization achieved the result.
4. Re-examine your result to ensure that you have captured everything that was done by the individual or the organization to achieve the success. That price did the individual or organization pay? What is the reason for the failure of the individual or organization?
5. Reproduce the success you desire by following the process in 3 and 4 above.
6. Give room for initial failure and keep at it.
Yes, God wants you to read the biography of successful people and avoid their shortcomings of failures. May you not die with your success! Many leaders are afraid to reproduce themselves because they think they might become irrelevant! If you are on top already, be different and let your generation drink form your river of success! Success without a successor is a failure! Avid it now!
Prayer Points: Take any song of worship as led
1. Pray about today’s word seriously as led.
2. Satan wants you to die without a successor! Cancel that plan concerning your life and ministry now!
3. As the year runs to an end, ask for the grace to read a biography per month next year.
4. Lord, restore all that I have lost this year (Pray it seriously)
