TOPIC: Increase Your Capacity – By David Ibiyeomie
No man can be great until he increases his capacity and you cannot increase your capacity if your mind is fixed. Refuse to be fixed in your mind because it leads to stagnation. Capacity is the ability to do something.
Matthew 25:15 (KJV) -And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.
There’s no ungifted person. God blesses people according to how they are prepared to receive. No one can be the best who refuses to improve. Capacity to be the best can be increased. Your blessing is given according to the level of your capacity; when you increase it, your blessing increases.
You increase your capacity through your way of thinking. Until your mind shifts, your capacity will not shift.
Proverbs 23:7 (KJV) -For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
The brain has a size but the mind is elastic and limitless. As much as your mind can grasp, God will give it to you. If your mind is fixed, you will not be able to think outside the box. If there’s no paradigm shift in your mind, no matter how much you pray, you will be fixed there.
Romans 12:2a (KJV) -And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.
What is happening to you on the outside is based on what is happening in your mind. No man can change his result outside when he has not changed himself on the inside. Your business must grow in your mind before it manifests. Until your mind grows, nothing grows. You cannot change a man until he changes his way of thinking and until he changes his way of thinking, nothing in his life will change.
Another way to increase your capacity is through personal development.
John 7:15 (KJV) -And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?
They saw Jesus reading but they marveled because he never went to formal school. Jesus was the most anointed but he developed himself. As his custom was, he was going to the temple to learn how to read; He therefore developed himself to read without going to school. That you did not go to school is not an excuse. It is not school that makes people; it is personal development. Without personal development, you cannot increase your capacity.
2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV) –Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Where school stops is where personal development starts. It is what you personally put into what you want to do that increases your capacity. Acquire knowledge. A man who does not read “good” books has no advantage over a man who cannot read; they are both equal.
God give you the grace to increase your capacity; so utilize it now!
God bless you
