TOPIC: Spare No Cost
SCRIPTURE: Psalm 8:1.
O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Mediocrity is an insult to the Glory of God; you cannot please God in mediocrity.
Excellence is a department of the Glory of God. This means the Glory of God also refers to the excellence of God. The glory carries excellence as a component (2 Peter 1:17).
Psalm 8:1 says, O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.
Where you see the glory, there you will also see excellence (Psalm 148:13).
You must understand, therefore, that mediocrity is an insult to the glory of God; you cannot please God in mediocrity. There is only one thing you will notice when you enter the glorious heaven; it is perfection that is beyond description.
That is the character of heaven.
When we were preparing for the construction of the Glory Dome, the Lord told me, “Spare no cost.” I had to share it with my wife. I have not heard that from anyone before that time. I could not forget that instruction. This means, to arrive at the dimension of excellence that God wanted the Glory Dome to be, we must spare no cost.
That instruction triggered my emptying everything in my personal accounts for the work. The Lord said that the building was for His glory and He wanted to use it as a representation of His glory and dignity in this end time. And you know only the best is good enough for anything that represents the King of kings.
And as instructed, we spared no cost during the construction, and no cost will also be spared in the maintenance. What we spend monthly on the running and maintenance of the building can build a Church every month. For example, what is spent monthly on fuel for power generator and electricity is in millions of Naira.
This is because we serve the God of excellence and only excellence can represent God.
REMEMBER THIS: Mediocrity is an insult to the Glory of God; you cannot please God in mediocrity.
- Refuse to live a mediocre or average life.
- Spare no cost for God; live at your best for the Kingdom.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You deliver me from the lifestyle of mediocrity. Help me to deploy Your nature of excellence in me, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
