(Develop An Effective Personality)
TO THE BIBLE: Acts 1:8 AMPC
“But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you…”
Often, young people ask how they can become more effective in their life generally; they want to know how to develop an effective personality. Well, God wants you to be an effective person, not just at school or in restricted areas of your life but all-round. If you’re an effective person, you’ll be effective in anything. That’s why you have to develop an effective personality.
The Holy Spirit living in you already gives you the advantage, for we read in our opening verse that “…you shall receive power (ability, efficiency (or effectiveness), and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you….” It’s very easy to become the best in whatever you do.
Firstly, be focused. Maintain a clear focus on the goal, target or task at hand. If it’s your assignment or a special project from school, whatever it is, have a clear focus.
Secondly, have a good understanding of the subject matter; understand the requirements for the project or task and everything that has to do with your expectations. In other words, know what needs to be done, and the results expected.
Thirdly, have a clear determination for real success—lasting success. You’ve got to be determined, motivated, challenged and driven by the joy of success. Then, fourthly, have corresponding action; you’ve got to act. Don’t laze away!
And finally, be consistent and diligent! Stay on it till it’s done; don’t make or accept excuses for failure. Refuse mundanity and choose to be absolutely proficient. And then of course, recognise and take advantage of the wisdom of God that’s available to you in Christ Jesus. If you’d put all these to work, you’ll be effective and successful in what you do.
John 15:8; John 15:16
Christ is my wisdom; therefore, I’m wise and I have the wisdom to do whatever I need to do. I function today at my best potentials because the wisdom of God works in me, talking through me, leading me, guiding me and causing me to be effective and productive in everything I lay my hands to do, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
