Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

Now all the work of Solomon was well-ordered from the day of the foundation of the house of the Lord until it was finished. So the house of the Lord was completed. – 2 Chron 8:16

God’s plan was accomplished by proper administration. I cannot recount how many times I have seen someone fail to fully participate in God’s plan for his or her life because of poor administration. God promises something great, yet we often drop the ball because we aren’t prepared, or don’t have time to count the cost and plan accordingly.

“I’m just not administratively talented,” you might say. But administration is a gift!

And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues. – 1 Cor 12:28

The same way you can pray and ask for any spiritual gift (1 Cor 12:8-10), you can pray and ask for administrative acumen! It’s already in you, because you are filled with God’s Holy Spirit; but the gift has to be activated!

Without proper administration, the temple would not have been built; but because of proper administration, Israel thrived! Ask for the gift of administration! Your destiny just might depend on it.


Father, help me to be well-organized and thoughtfully motivated. I pray that You would activate the gift of administration in me: here and now!
