Bible Reading:  Daniel 1: 17,20; Romans 12:11

Memory Verse:  Show me someone who does a good job, and I will show you someone who is better than most and worthy of the company of kings. Proverbs 22:29 (GNT)

A young and brilliant Nigerian Lady named Priscilla Asikhia has set an outstanding record of being the youngest PhD graduate of Babcock University, South-West, Nigeria, after earning a Doctorate (PhD) degree at the young age of 25. She said, “A successive 10-year education has given me a grounded knowledge of Educational Research, Administration, and Human Resource.” Priscilla started her higher academic journey at the age of 15 and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at 19 years old.

She enrolled for a Master’s Degree in Business Administration and Management which she concluded at the age of 22. Immediately after the completion of her Master’s degree, Priscilla began her PhD degree, studying Human Resouces and Personnel Administration.

While the focus of education shouldn’t be merely acquiring certifications, but coming to the full self-awareness of one’s innate abilities, we must encourage the younger generation to contend for superior performance. Somethings are best done early in life.  

What must I do to be outstanding in my academics?

1. Connect to God’s grace: Jesus is the custodian of all wisdom, knowledge and understanding needed to have good success. Don’t displace Jesus out of your academic equation. It is one thing to be  successful academically, and it is another thing to be successful in destiny.

2. Radical Dedication: You must be ready to give your all to your academics. No night club, no partying, no season films during term time, no boyfriend/girlfriend, no addiction to screen. You only involve in sports, extra curricular activities and social gatherings that are godly, that refreshes your mind and sets your spirit on fire for God. There is a price tag for every noble prize.

3. Deep Discipline: Are you ready to burn the midnight Oil? Alternatively, if you assimilate better during the day, are you ready to clear off other “important schedule”? Be ready to learn, unlearn, and relearn repeatedly until you master problem-solving.

4. Early Preparation: Try to be familiar with every topic before the start of the class. Read ahead of the class especially during your holiday.

5. Watch your company of friends: You are who you work with. Your circle of friends are your biggest influencers. Choose carefully. Evil communication corrupts good manners (1 Cor. 15:33).

Quote: You can beat the best and be the best. 

Prophetic Decree: Foundational powers shall not capture your academic glory, in Jesus name. 

Prayer Focus 

1. I break the yoke of academic failure in my life, in Jesus name.

2. Let the caterpillar of heaven clear away every demonic investment in the pathway to my academic glory, in Jesus name.

3. Spirit of wisdom, knowledge, and understanding, baptize my life, in Jesus name.

4. Generational curse that affects academic glory in my family, break, in Jesus name.

5. Grace for academic ease, envelope my life, in Jesus name.
