SermonJotter 1st Anniv. Top 20 Messages: 12. Power of Excellence.

Power of Excellence

Excellence is going beyond simply doing a good job at something. It is giving an extra effort to be the best you can possible be. It is going beyond self-improvement and personal development. Excellence
"Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm." {Daniel 6:3}
Excellence is a major requirement for success. It means that you are striving for excellence in what you do in your life. It means that you do your best to achieve the requirements of the task, resulting in satisfied customers or supervisors and the good feeling of pride in your work. But achieving that goal can be a challenge due to outside forces and your own destructive attitudes.
Excellence is essential in rising above the crowd and in providing others what they want. You benefit by improving your own esteem and self-worth, as well as how others view you. This means that you must do excellent or high quality work in everything you do. How you do things relates to how you feel about yourself--your attitude, confidence, self-esteem, self-worth, and pride in your abilities. It is also important in how others look at you. Excellence and quality products and services are essential for a business to be a success.
When you are excellent in what you do then:
Ø People will sought after you no matter how hidden you appear to be.
Ø Even your enemies will acknowledge and respect you.
Ø You will be a pace-setter.
Excellent people in history:
v Jesus Christ Jesus fulfilled his destiny with excellence; even the devil came to him and found nothing to hold against him. {John 14:30}.
v Paul He was a thorough man from the time he was a persecutor. Even when he started to contend for faith he continued in the zeal of his believe. He declared that he had fought a good fight, I have finished my course { 2 Timothy 4:7}
v Dr. D.K OlukoyaThis is a man that believes in total excellence; in his undergraduate days, he
aimed for the top and had the first class in a difficult course called molecular genetics. He furthered in to his PhD and he excel. With all this, he retired from the academic career into the ministry by God’s instruction and also excelling greatly. He has even become a pace setter in that which he believed in.
v Hon. Minister, Babatunde Fashola: This is a man that pursued excellence; when he became the governor of
Lagos state, nobody knew him but he made a distinctive mark that no one can overlook. His predecessor is so proud of him that he added him to his cv; his competitors accepted him as the leader and a no match; he became a pace-setter that everyone is trying to emulate. All this is as a result of excellence. The same excellence announced him even in the midst of his oppositions and has now bagged him the minister for Power, Works & Housing. Excellence pays; whatever you do, please add excellence.

Time will not allow us to name excellent people like King David, Daniel, Dora Akunyili,Ali Baba, Pastor Sam Adeyemi, Don Moen, Pastor Adeboye, Dr. Akinwumi Adesina (Minister for Agriculture), Tunde Kelani, Kunle Afolayan and so on.

vYou need God to fuel and energies your excellence
”Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.” {Daniel 6:3}
You need God to give grace to your excellence; that is the excellent spirit of God.
Declare this to yourself:
I receive the spirit of excellence of God, by the power in the blood of Jesus.
 v Always Target Your Power Goals:  Be focused and aim high, not wide.

 vRefresh your Power Goals before Reentering the Starting Gate: If necessary, realign your goals based on new realities.

 The Power of Weakness Informs Success: Understand and embrace weakness… don't ignore them.

v Perfection Is the Enemy of Excellence: Never strive for perfection; it hinders a path toward excellence.

v Seek Solutions to Problems rather Than Just Their Causes: Time is limited; let's fix it or make it better. Don't get stuck in the why, focus on the how.

v Make Foresight your 20/20 Hindsight Objective: Think before it happens.

v Life Gets in the Way of Life: Expect and anticipate life's unexpected, unanticipated “curveballs.”

v Embrace and Celebrate Detours, Roadblocks, Speed Bumps, and Stop SignsA journey well-traveled helps ensure safe arrival.

Collaboration rules.

I pray that power of excellence that will catapult you to your level of manifestation will fall upon you in the name of Jesus.
