Start This Week With Pastor Alph Lukau – (September 10th 2018)
You and I have been given gifts. God entrusted us with them. One day, He’s going to come back. We’re going to see Him. He’s going to ask, “What did you do with the talents I gave you?” Whether you have one, two or five, that doesn’t matter.
God has given us all different abilities. We’re not competing with each other. I don’t have to outperform you. You don’t have to keep up with your neighbor.
What matters is what you are doing with what you have. Are you living fear-based: afraid to take a risk, not willing to get out of your comfort zone, not putting the effort to develop your gift? Have you buried it or are you living faith-based: growing, stretching, looking for opportunities, developing what you have, believing you have seeds of greatness?
There should be something you’re believing for where you are relentless. You aren’t moved by how impossible it looks; you’re not discouraged by how long it’s taking; you don’t give up because people told you no. Your attitude is, “If I have to believe my whole life, I’m going keep believing. I’m not going to take no for an answer. I’m not going to settle for less. I’m going to keep pursuing what God put in my heart.”
