3.FINANCIAL EMPOWERMENT

You owe it a duty to God to be successful. Success and Fortunes are made in people’s mind. Your mind is the ultimate personal computer, you can instruct your minds computer to select the right job, make the right investment, choose the right mate, exercise influence and to acquire wealth. The bible says in Proverbs “As a man thinketh in his mind so is he”. In Ps. 25:12-13 Living Bible – “where is the man that fears the Lord”, God will teach him how to choose the best. He shall live within God’s circle of blessing and his children shall inherit the earth. You are what you are today because of what you did or said yesterday. The past is gone but you can still create a good future. If you can visualize the future, you can create a plan to get there. What are your 3months, 6months, 12months, 5years, and 10years goal. Create a life map of where you want to be in the future. A successful person knows perfectly what she DESIRES has a PLAN for getting it. BELIEVES in her ability to get it and DEVOTES a major part of her time ACQUIRING it

A simple plan to follow:

1.DREAM – Habk. 2:2-3; Prov. 23:7 – let your imagination run riot write your dream list

2.DESIRE – Ps. 37:4; 145:19; Isa. 1:19 – do you desire to have your dreams come to pass, are you ready to work hard and give all to work towards your dream

3.DECISION – Deut. 30:19 – can you draw a mental line a firm decision to go ahead and pursue your life map

4.DETERMINATION – Josh. 24:15 – can you back your decision with a determination to succeed against all odds, disappointments, remember obstacles is what you see when you take your eyes off your goal

5.DELIGENCE – Prov. 22:29; 21:5; Phl.3:12-14; Is. 50:7 – with perseverance even the snail entered the ark

6.DISCIPLINE – I Cor. 9:27; Rom. 12:1-2
– Indiscipline can destroy all that God has for you. Hold on fast to your dream

2.THE 7 HABITS OF THE EFFECTIVE CHRISTIAN MANAGER

HABIT 1: BE PROACTIVE – PRINCIPLE OF PERSONAL VISION
The effective Manager takes the initiative. He makes things happen. He identifies what needs to be done, and goes ahead to do it. He does not wait to be prompted. Let us take a look as NEHEMIAH Chapter 2 v. 5: “…....If your Majesty is pleased with me, and is willing to grant my request, let me go to the Land of Judah, to the city where my ancestors are buried, so that I can rebuild the city.”
Nehemiah faced the challenge of reconstructing the walls of Jerusalem and restoring the city to its former glory, he did not dithered, he explored all legitimate avenues for assistance and set about the task.

HABIT 2: BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND – PRINCIPLE OF PERSONAL LEADERSHIP
Before you go on a trip, you determine your destination and plan out the best route. You create speeches on paper before you deliver them. You design a house before you build it. The extent to which you begin with the end in mind often determines whether or not you are capable of creating a viable enterprise. Most business failures begin in the first creation, with problems such as undercapitalization, misunderstanding of the market or lack of a business plan. The effective Managers, like Nehemiah, begins with the end in mind (NEHEMIAH Chapter 2 v. 18, 13; 17-18). He inspected the broken walls to get a first hand appreciation of the extent of the damage. This enabled him to plan, systematically, the work of restruction. He visualized the old city of Jerusalem in all its splendour and scenic beauty and mobilized people to join him in rebuilding the walls.

HABIT 3: BE BOLD/BE STRONG/BE DETERMINED – PUT FIRST THINGS FIRST – PRINCIPLE OF PERSONAL MANAGEMENT
The effective Manager is confident; he has tenacity of purpose because he believes that God is with him. Daniel worshipped God inspite of the decree given by the King. He was thrown into the lion’s den as punishment but the good Lord whom he served “shut the mouths of the lions so that he escaped unhurt” (DANIEL 6 v. 10; 16-22). There are times when the workplace is becoming a battle ground because you stand up for what is right. Do not be dismayed. Hear what Moses said to Joshua in DEUT. 31 v. 6: “Be determined and confident. Do not be afraid of them. Your God, the Lord Himself will be with you. He will not fail you or abandon you” also in Joshua 1:3-9.

HABIT 4: THINK WIN/WIN – PRINCIPLE OF INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS
A Win/win mentality sees life as a cooperative, not a competitive arena. It is based on the promise that there is plenty for everybody. One’s person’s success is not achieved at the expense or exclusion of the success of others. Create the ABUNDANCE MENTALITY. Managers with the scarcity mentality have difficulty sharing credit, power and profit – even with those who helped in the production. They have a hard time sharing other people’s joys too. It is almost as if something is taken from them anytime someone else gets a lift. These ineffective Managers forget that: “The world and all that is in it belong to the Lord; the earth and all who live in it” – Psalm 24:1.

HABIT 5: LISTEN – SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND THEN TO BE UNDERSTOOD – PRINCIPLE OF EMPHATIC COMMUNICATION
This is a tough one! Most people will rather talk than listen. Listening is time consuming. Beside, it is easier to talk than to listen. But the effective Manager cultivates the art of listening to his boss, his subordinates, his peers and to God. To relate effectively with others and also with our creator, we must learn to listen. Seek solitude, withdraw like MOSES, periodically to seek communion with God. LISTEN!

HABIT 6: SYNERGIZE – PRINCIPLE OF CREATIVE COOPERATION
Put simply, synergy means that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Synergy is team building. The effective Manager is a good team member. He adopts the spirit of creative cooperation in all his actions and interactions. He realizes that individuals have their differences, but chooses to build our trengthe rather than weaknesses. He appreciates that none of us is as smart as all of us. Here again, I draw on the example of Nehemiah as he galvanized all positive forces towards the rebuilding of the wall – Nehemiah Chapt. 3 v. 1-3. The high priest Eliashib and his fellow priests rebuilt the Sheep Gate …....... The men of Jericho built the next section …....... Zaccur son of Imri built the next section….......

HABIT 7: SHARPEN THE SAW – PRINCIPLE OF BALANCED SELF RENEWAL
Habit 7 is renewal of the four dimensions of our nature as human beings (not just Managers) – PHYSICAL, SPIRITUAL, MENTAL and SOCIAL/EMOTIONAL. The effective Manager finds time to exercise his body as a regular basis in a way that will preserve and enhance his capacity to work. He may play Tennis, Golf or Jog or just go on a walk. He also renews himself spiritually. Renewing the spiritual dimension provides leadership to your life. The spiritual dimension – COMMITMENT TO GOD – is your core, your centre. It is the pivot around which everything else operates. The effective Manager finds renewal in daily prayerful meditation on the scriptures. As he reads the Bible, he feels renewed, trengthened, focused and recommitted to serve God.. You develop an inner peace which comes from regular withdrawal from the noise and vanities of the outside world. Constant “sharpening of the saw” keeps a Manager on course, he does not get derailed. He is not conformed to this world but is transformed by the renewal of his mind. Rom. 12 v. 2. His prayer is “Create in me a clean heart o God and renew a right spirit within me….Ps. 51 v. 10”

2.RELEASING THE ANNOITING FOR WEALTH

How do you start releasing the Annointing for wealth? Through

a.Faith

b.Giving

c.Diligence, Perseverance and Hardwork

d.Divine favour

e.Confession

1. FAITH – Faith is the master key, anything not done in faith is sin, Faith is the

substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen – Heb 11.

2. GIVING – Gen 8:22 – As long as the earth remains, Seedtime and Harvest time shall
never cease
Lk 17:34 – Give and it shall be given unto you, good measure pressed down and
shaken together.
Ph 4:17-19 – Grace of Giving leads to a promise that your needs will be met according
to Christ’s riches in glory.

3. DILIGENCE, PERSEVERANCE and HARDWORK

Gen 26:12-14 – Isaac sowed and in the same year reaped a 100 fold in return.
The bible says see a man diligent in his work, he shall stand before Kings and not
mere men.

4. DIVINE FAVOUR – You need to grow in favour with God and man as God’s favour
encompasses you around like a shield. So how do you invoke divine favour?

(a)Through Praise and Worship – God dwells in the midst of praise

(b)Through Prophet offering – Believe God’s Prophets and you shall prosper.

(c)Dedication and Consecration to God.

(d)Obedience to God and his messenger

5. CONFESSION – You shall have whatsoever you say as a man is ensnarled by the
words of his mouth
