Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 8 November 2022 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Effective Delegation: A Leadership Secret (VIII)
TOPIC — Effective Delegation: A Leadership Secret (VIII) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 8 November 2022)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ezekiel 16, Hebrews 9:1-15, Proverbs 27:5-14
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Matthew 25:14-30 (KJV)
14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.
15 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.
16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.
17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.
18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money.
19 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.
20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.
21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.
23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:
25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.
26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:
27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.
28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.
29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.
30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
MEMORY VERSE: “His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” – Matthew 25:23

MFM Devotional For Today 2022 MESSAGE:
Yesterday, we identified two benefits of effective delegation. We will look at two more benefits and conclude our discourse on this interesting topic today.
As a leader, the third benefit of effective delegation to you is that it stimulates creativity and develops skills in your team. We are in an age that gives premium to creativity and innovation. Sometimes, the game-changing ideas do come from team members, not the leader. Therefore, leaders who give their team members the freedom to tackle delegated tasks in their own way are actually empowering their team and giving them a creative licence. Such team members are driven to succeed and their personal initiative can lead to creativity breakthroughs that will immensely bless the team or the organisation.
The fourth benefit of effective delegation to you, dear leader, is that it helps to boost the team’s morale. improve their efficiency and productivity as well as promote enthusiasm, innovation and cooperation. All these are essential for the achievement of the team’s or organisation’s mission and vision.
Ephesians 4:11-13 and 1 Peter 4:10-11 make it clear that God wants everyone serving and fulfilling their ministries. Leaders are, in part, developed as they are entrusted with greater levels of responsibility and decision making. In Matthew 25:14-30, Jesus explained some principles of delegation. (1) Delegation is a trust. “…he entrusted his property to them.” (2) We take into account a person’s abilities when we delegate. “To one he gave five talents…, to another, two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability.” (3) Delegation means accountability for the right results. “…the master… returned and settled accounts with them.” (4) Faithfulness with a few things is a prerequisite for being in charge of many things. “You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things.” (5) Faithfulness with things precedes faithfulness with people. “Because you have been trustworthy in a very small matter (one mina), take charge of ten cities (people).”
How faithful have you been with a few things? Can God entrust you with many things now? I counsel you to examine yourself and pray fervently to God. He will help you, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, help me to promote creativity and innovation, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, help me to boost the morale of my team, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, give me the ideas that will increase productivity and help my team to succeed, in the name of Jesus.
- As give people more responsibilities and the opportunity to make decisions, Father, help me to develop more leaders for Your work, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, make me a faithful steward, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, arise and let my glory speak, in the name of Jesus.
- Holy Spirit, overshadow my life, in the name of Jesus.
