The Oxford dictionary defines position as " a place where someone or something is located  or has been put", positioning therefore is a physical process of locating something or someone. the second key word is "exploit" which is also described as " a notable deed or achievement, especially one that is remarkable or heroic"

In life we have to challenge ourselves to be the in the right position. we should as an individual have the passion to do more, to achieve more and also to grow more, both physically and spiritually. one of the people in the bible that yawned to position himself well in order to do exploit was Zacchaeus. 

I will now take you on a journey to analyse Zacchaeus' life and to gain a better understanding as to why Zacchaeus' was prompted to act the way he acted. 

In Luke 19, Zacchaeus was described as a  rich young man with a prestigious career. he was a tax collector and a high profile government official. he literally has everything he wants; talk of money, houses, power, slaves etc.. he was a very comfortable man, very popular. he rolls with high class business men and women in town and has connections all around. what more will you ask for if you have all this? Zacchaeus despite all his wealth, power and influence still felt a void in his life. 

And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature. 

Zacchaeus was a man of small stature; this was one of the physical challenges he faced. however, he didn't let that stop him from encountering God's visitation. he was determined. he realised his weakness and he turned it around by climbing on a "sycamore" tree beside the road in order to see Jesus: he changed his POSITION.

Doing exploit requires a bit of more effort from you. if you know that you are doing the same thing and its yielding the same old result, it is a RED signal. Insanity means doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different result. To do exploit you need to do things differently, employ another strategy and position yourself right. it also involves moving away from the crowd. Zacchaeus chose to move away from the crowd and Jesus visited him.

it does not end there; he gave back all the belongings he has forcefully and deceitfully acquired to their rightful owners. Zacchaeus was determined to position himself right and he clearly did exploit; Jesus visited him and salvation was brought to his household. 

A word to ponder on: 
***** "But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, hat you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light" 1 peter. 2:9 *****

God bless
