Topic: THERE IS ABILITY IN YOUR DISABILITY
Bible Reading: Luke 19:1-5
📖1….”And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.
📖2….And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich.
📖3….And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature.
📖4….And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way.
📖5….And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house.”
🔥In the faith, there are many ways to arrive at one’s destiny. God made it so, for no man to have an excuse to fail. According to our anchor text from Luke 19:1-5, Zacchaeus thought he could arrive by being a chief among the publicans, but he wasn’t satisfied with his riches because his spirit was lacking something. So, he had to climb a sycomore tree to satisfy his inner longing, and was able to see his promised land. Zacchaeus climbed because his disability disadvantaged him, and so, had to increase his size by climbing. If he wasn’t short, he wouldn’t have climbed, and Jesus wouldn’t had seen him. Beloveth, use your weaknesses to your advantage.
🔥🔥Many a time, believers practise inferiority complex in every situation they find themselves, because of their perceived disabilities. Some remain strangers in the Church forever because they feel not rich enough, not educated enough, in fact, not enough this, not enough that, and not enough anything, to seek and find God with in the Church. They forget that none of the disciples of Jesus Christ was enough in anything, including Moses, who was a stammerer (Exodus 4:10-12); until God qualified them by making them enough. May God make you enough after reading this BoLD and taking an unusual step of faith in your Church, in Jesus’ name.
🔥🔥🔥Even though Zacchaeus’ small size limited him for sometime, he eventually defeated it by climbing on a sycomore tree, and reached up to God, and God also reached down to him through Jesus in Luke 19:5, because he climbed up to God. Those who are disadvantaged in one way or the other should run to overtake. They should make haste on service days to, at least be the first to be in the service. Whoever comes after you will also feel inferior before you. Before Zacchaeus ran to overtake the crowd, David had also ran to defeat the challenge that almost made Israel inferior to the Philistines in 1 Samuel 17:48. Child of God, no matter your inferiority complex, use your disability to attract God to your home, job, business, and marriage today.
🙏Precious father, destroy from me, whatever complex that hinders me from worshipping you acceptably in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏O Lord, revive in me, an unusual zeal to do extraordinary things in the Church daily, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Heavenly father, as the effort of Zacchaeus took you to his house, let every service of mine in the Church, open the door of my house unto you, in Jesus’ name.
