TOPIC: SUBMIT TO TRAINING
“And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained [servants] , born in his own house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued [them] unto Dan.” GENESIS 14:14
God has a laid out structure and system to help you grow and become very useful in the kingdom. It is the process of training. There are certain levels at which God wants to use us that requires the process of training. Everyone to be used of God must go through it.
In our opening scripture the bible records that when Abraham was to go rescue his nephew Lot he chose only trained servants. There probably were more men that could have been taken along for the battle but Abraham knew that if he added untrained men to the number maybe with the intention of having a greater army, they would end up wearying everyone. (Eccl 10:15)
So it is a principle God strictly adheres to. Responsibilities are given BY God according to different levels of training, and this is why Paul strictly charged that a man who wants to attain a certain level in the Kingdom must not be a novice. A novice is one lacking in the desired training. Paul said if such a person is given a task, he could end up destroying himself.
Training increases your value, it makes you useful and resourceful. No matter how great a man’s destiny is, without training he may never accomplish it, and this was what happened with Moses when he tried to be a deliverer without the required training (Exodus 2:11-14). Though he was actually born a deliverer, He made a mess of it. So God had to properly take him through the process of training under Jethro before bringing him back to fulfill his destiny. This is a life principle. Training requires time, so you must be patient to go through it, humble enough to submit to it, and ready to pay for it where need be.
Training are at different levels and stages, so submit to it today and become a man of extraordinary value that can be used by God. Have a great day.
SCRIPTURAL REF: 1TIMOTHY 3:6. Eccl 10:15
CONFESSION: I submit myself in humility to every required training I need in life. I am sensitive enough to recognize and yield myself to the areas of training I require and grow into a man of extraordinary value. Amen
