Anointing is the energy of God that works in His people to achieve His purpose. To excel is to go beyond the normal or standard. This required extraordinary capacity or strength and for us Christians, it is the anointing of God. This is God's energy to life.
The advantage of the Christian in this quest is that we are the light of the world (Matt. 5:14-16). Again, God's Devine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3-4).
We are like the tree planted by the rivers of water (all our options don't dry up at the same time) and we shall bear our fruits in season ( Psalm 1:3).
Also, Jesus became poor so that we through his poverty might become rich. So why are you broke( 2 Cor. 8-9).
We have been identified with Christ in his death, burial and resurrection and are seated with Christ at the right hand of God the father. We are superior to Satan ( Romans 6).
With all these, there is no way Christian should fail in life.
Therefore, in order to excel, we should spend time to meditate on God's word. We should not just read God's word, but spend quality time thinking about it and speaking it to ourselves.
We must also devote ourselves fully not partially to God's word we have meditated on. It is only by doing this that excellence will emerge. We have no excuse not to excel.
