The Leverage Devotional by Apostle Segun Obadje 17 FEBRUARY 2024: Working Smart

Leverage Devotional For Today Message:

Working smart is key to making the most of time, resources, and initiatives. God does not want us to duplicate effort. Working smart requires that you do not duplicate effort and that you are effective, efficient, and productive in the works of your hands. You can solve many problems by just one stroke of genius. You can build a template that becomes the basis for increase and multiplication. Let’s take our example from the Father Creator. Today’s opening Scripture shows the creative genius of God’s wisdom. The only wise God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul. He started out the creation of man by putting His hands in the dirt and dust of the earth. He worked and got His hands dirty in the mud, but that was the first and last time He got His hands dirty. Adam was the template of mankind; he was the production line. When God needed to make the woman, He didn’t have to go to the dust of the ground again, He just went straight to the template that He had made. He caused the man to go into a deep sleep, did a surgical operation on him, pulled out one of his ribs, closed the flesh thereof, and made the woman with that rib (Genesis 2:21-23). Amazing, isn’t it? That’s very much like God. He is a smart Worker.

Beloved, you are the image of God; you are His likeness. You ought to work smart like Him. You ought to have templates and production lines when you work. You ought to work with posterity in view. You must be eternal in your perspective. Do things in such a way that they will last and outlast you. Think about the next generation and generations to come. Let thoughts of posterity influence your work ethic and productivity.

In working smart, you must understand the power of a seed. God has not made you to live a life of toil. God does not desire for you to keep getting your hands dirty all your life. You should touch the dust of the ground in labour once and thereafter let the product of that keep working for you. Having worked for money, you then let your money work for you. By the blessing of God on your life, you should not get your hands in the mud all your life. Discern the different seasons of your life correctly. Let the wisdom of God guide you and how you work.

My Solid Front (Confession):
In the Name of Jesus Christ, I have wisdom from above to multiply and increase all that God has placed in my hands. I declare that my eyes are open to recognise the seed for future harvest in all that I do. I am empowered by God with creative ability to get and multiply wealth in the Name of Jesus.

Further Meditation: Psalms 22:30; Luke 8:5-11.

30 Posterity will serve him;
    future generations will be told about the Lord.

5 “A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path; it was trampled on, and the birds ate it up. Some fell on rocky ground, and when it came up, the plants withered because they had no moisture. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up with it and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up and yielded a crop, a hundred times more than was sown.”

When he said this, he called out, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.”

His disciples asked him what this parable meant. 10 He said, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to others I speak in parables, so that,

“‘though seeing, they may not see;
    though hearing, they may not understand.’[a]

11 “This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is the word of God.
