You did not choose me. I chose you and sent you out to produce fruit, the kind of fruit that will last. Then my Father will give you whatever you ask for in my name – John 15:16 (CEV).

Isn’t it wonderful to know that the Lord Jesus chose and ordained you to produce abiding fruits: results that stand the test of time? Whatever you do is expected to succeed and “abide”; that means others can build on your success, and take it to the next level; that’s the way your life should be.

The Bible tells us about Joseph who was brought into the house of Potiphar as a slave. However, because the Lord was with him, everything he did prospered. He was prosperous and effective. When his master, Potiphar, saw this, he promptly made Joseph the overseer over his house. Potiphar recognized that Joseph was blessed to produce lasting results.

The anointing is on your life by the Holy Spirit to bring about excellence in everything you do. Become conscious of this. Whatever you’re required to do should be a success because you’re a child of God, and you’re fashioned for good works. Ephesians 2:10 says, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” There’s something about you that makes every task that’s assigned to you a success. Success and excellence are in your spirit, they’re your heritage in Christ.

Therefore, keep bearing fruits. Keep winning. Remain effective. Wherever you find yourself, make a difference. Joseph’s excellence wasn’t discovered when he became the boss; it was discovered while he was a slave. He only became the boss because of his effectiveness. The Spirit of God in you makes you an effective and efficient person: “But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you…” (Acts 1:8 AMP). You’re anointed to win, and to make things work; you’re anointed, not just to produce results, but lasting results; enduring legacy. Glory to God!
