Training is what brings out our specialness and uniqueness. Training stretches you and brings out the best in you. Training makes demands on you, especially your time. It requires your interest, availability, and cooperation.
Most people like someone who will be soft on them instead of training them. Do you know how many footballers could have been great but didn’t like their coaches? They didn’t like the training schedule their coaches drew and chose what they liked. You may have talents, but talents that are not coached will end up in the jungle. No matter the gifts in you, if you are not properly coached, you are a disaster going somewhere to happen.
Gifts will keep deceiving you about your true level and keep you from developing to the fullest. However, when you stay under a coach that is sound in training and tells you what to do and you do it, you become refined and better.
Just as natural coaches do not put talents in those they coach, the pastor as a spiritual coach does not put gifts inside the people. The pastor only coaches the people. As a spiritual coach, I tell some of our choir members with great voices to avoid certain things (like drinking cold water) to preserve their voice because their voice is their ticket to greatness.
Are you going through some training now? Go through it properly. Stop fighting your trainer. Stop reacting to training. Reacting to training is the ticket to failure in life. Embrace training and you will qualify for the anointing.
PRAYER: Help me Lord to embrace my training and go through it effectively. Amen!
