GREAT IMPACT; A PRODUCT OF GREAT RISK
Welcome to Seed of Destiny Devotional written by Dr Paul Enenche

SCRIPTURE: He which received the one talent came and said, Lord, I know thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou has not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strewed: And I was afraid, and went and hid the talent in the earth; lo, there thou has that is thine. Matthew 25:24-25
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Great impact is a product of great risk-sponsored effort.
It is an established fact that there is no investment without risk. You cannot have a chance if you do not take a chance. You cannot succeed if you do not make an attempt. If you cannot risk failing, you cannot help but to fail.
A major problem with the man in our anchor Scripture was the fear of taking a risk. He did not want to lose the talent in investment so he decided to save it. He eventually lost everything. In order not to end a loser in life, you must make up your mind to be a risk taker. Impact makers are risk takers. Great impact is a product of great risk-sponsored effort.
God Almighty is actually a great risk-taker. When He sent and invested His only Son, Jesus Christ for the redemption of mankind, it was a great risk. But that risk has produced and it is still producing great results. What if Christ suffered the way He did and nobody believed? It was a risk.
So, in order to multiply the grace and resources of your life, you must decide to be a risk-taker. Determine to rise up again and again even if repeated attempts fail.
Remember this: Great impact is a product of great risk-sponsored effort.
1. Ensure the risk you take is in line with the Will of God for your life.
2. Make strategic plans before you take a risk.
3. Refuse to be a failure; arise and take your place in life.

PRAYER: O LORD, thank You for Your glorious plans for my life. I receive the grace to be a risk-taker. I refuse to remain in status-quo, in Jesus’ Name.
