“One man of you shall chase a thousand, for the Lord your God is He Who fights for you, as He promised you.” Joshua 23:10 (NKJV).
The purpose and power of synergy in a wholesome relationship can never be overemphasised. However, our contribution to the General Programme of God is directly proportional to our capactity. While referring to the Lord, King Solomon tells us that “Also He has put Eternity in their hearts…” (Ecc.3:11b). This actually means that man is designed by God to have an Eternal capacity within.
In his letter to the Church in Ephesus, the apostle Paul prayed to God the Father: “Now to Him Who is Able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the Power that works in us” (Eph.3:20). Carefully consider the phrase “according to the Power that works in us.” This is a clear pointer to the inherent capacity a believer carries.
A diligent study of the Scriptures seem to infer that the least esteemed of believers is capable of influencing a thousand people (see Isa.60:22). In other words, one thousand contacts is the least capacity any Christian truly has as far as relationships are concerned. This is a sobering thought because multitudes of believers are operating far below their potential. May we rise to the fullness of our true capacity.
Heavenly Father, thank You for equipping us to multiply as Authentic Christians. Please open our eyes to see those to whom we are sent in Jesus’ Mighty Name. Amen.
