Paul was a man of ability. He was a frontline lawyer and one of the most gifted brains of his generation by the time he got into Christ. It was such an amazing transformation that took place in the life of Paul.
At a young age, Paul was in the governing Sanhedrin council of his region. This is equivalent to being the youngest member of the Senate, the youngest Chief Executive Officer or the youngest billionaire. Paul had a voice in the land. He had reasons to boast in the flesh. If Paul writes his degrees, the back of a single envelope can’t contain the titles. There are some men that by the time you finish introducing them, the time to speak would have been exhausted; their citation will take the whole time of the meeting. There are men like that who have acquired titles from everywhere possible. Now to come into the midst of God’s people, how easy is it for him to become spiritual? But Paul proved that it’s possible. So, if you are like that, find your model in Paul.
Like Paul, if you are a man of ability, the only way you can become a man of spirituality is to value spirituality more than that ability.
If you are going to be a member of the Daniel Company that God is going to use in these last days, you’ve got to decide to go the road that Paul went. The things that men count as important, you are going to place them where they belong and place what you are looking for as more important.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, help me to place the things in my life in their proper place in Jesus name.
