In HIS Presence




“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; Before you were born, I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations”.

How can you identify your sphere of influence? Several characteristics define and delineate your area of influence:

Ownership, authority, and identity. With ownership and authority comes influence and impact. Within the boundaries of your sphere of influence, you are an authority, a force to reckon with. It is where you have been called to subdue and dominate. Which area of human endeavor do you wield the most authority and influence? Where do you exert maximum influence?

Your allotted sphere delineates responsibilities and privileges such as recognition, power, and honor. You are mostly celebrated there because it is where you are making the most impact. Which area of endeavor are you often called upon to serve in?

Your sphere of influence provides an avenue for you to multiply your resources and be blessed. It is a fulfilment of God’s promises in your life. It is an avenue for God to release His blessings on you. Where in your life do you see much growth and fruitfulness, even when you exert very little efforts?

Your sphere of influence is your Rehoboth, which is ‘a place of reduced conflict’ (Gen 26.22). Since it is your inheritance, God will fight for you, against any contender. Where do you exert the least effort, yet reap the most gain?

Lastly, your sphere of influence is your ‘point of reference’. It is the place where you will become known for something. In Numbers, chapter 22, Balak the king wanted Balaam to curse the people of Israel because he was afraid of their prosperity. He sent messengers to Balaam saying “for I know that he whom you bless is blessed. On which soil are you leaving the most footprints? Where are you leaving a legacy?

Your answers to the above questions should lead you to your designated sphere of influence and point you towards your dream.

IN HIS PRESENCE is written by Oke Chinye.
Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest."

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:
Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.
