Daily Devotional by Dr. Paul Enenche.

TOPIC: DEVELOPING URSELF TO REACH THE PEAK

SCRIPTURE:1 TIM 4:13.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Change or promotion is not a function of age and longevity; it is a matter of choice and self-development.

Sometime ago, I heard the story of a female lecturer, who had Master’s Degree in English Language from one of the universities in Nigeria.
This lecturer had a student that passed through her tutelage. She lectured this student. After graduation, the student decided to be engaged by the same university and secured an employment as a Graduate Assistant.
From being a Graduate Assistant, he was promoted to the rank of Assistant Lecturer, and then to Lecturer Two, Lecturer One, Senior Lecturer, and then he eventually became a Professor in the same English Department, where his former teacher still held a Master’s Degree.
After a while, he became the Head of that Department, much higher in rank than the female Lecturer who taught him.
You see, some people are angry that a junior person overtook them. The question to ask is, what is the junior person doing to earn such a promotion? That a vehicle is parked by the roadside does not mean others should park.
It is good to find out what people did that took them up in life.
So, change or promotion is not a function of age and longevity; it is a matter of choice and self-development. You are not promoted by virtue of just longevity, but by productivity resulting from self-development and competence.

Beloved, what is your profession in life? Are you a medical doctor, lawyer, estate agent, lecturer or a businessman or woman? Make up your mind to develop yourself and do your job to the highest level.
In your area of calling, make up your mind to invest in books and materials that will make you better.

Remember this: Change or promotion is not a function of age and longevity; it is a matter of choice and self-development.

ASSIGNMENTS:
Refuse to stop at your current level of qualification, training or learning.
Give attention to reading, training and learning. Go to school if necessary.

PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the grace to give attention to learning always. Deliver me from mediocrity and stagnation, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: Reigning By Training.

QUOTE: If people are learning from you, it helps you grow because you have to learn in order to teach. The easiest way for the teacher to learn the subject is to teach it. Responsibility facilitates growth and development. Culled from “Who Are You?”

DAILY READING: Proverbs 28-30.

AMAZING FACT: It takes light 8 minutes and 20 seconds (1 astronomical unit) to reach us.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD:
Grace never to stop your journey half-way is released for you now in Jesus Name.
