Topic: Proofs Of Solid Spirituality [Seeds of Destiny Thursday May 31, 2018]
Scripture: But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. – Matthew 6:33
Thought For The Day: The higher a person goes with God, the humbler he becomes.
Yesterday, we saw the value of spirituality; we saw that the true needs of man are spiritual, and that when the spiritual is handled, every other thing flows. We also saw that a true spiritual person is responsible, operates with high mentality and is reliable.
Today, we want to look at products or proofs of spirituality. I will give you two of them:
i) Spirituality is doorway to tenacity
Tenacity is the capacity to withstand pressure and keep on keeping on (Job 14:14). Spirituality facilitates optimism, positivism, enthusiasm. A spiritual person is a real fighter; he does not give up and does not take ‘No’ for an answer. He is a goal-getter.
ii) Spirituality anchors humility
The more spiritual people get, the humbler they become. This is because the Almightiness of God always reveals the nothingness of man. Humility is necessary because God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble (James 4:7). The humbler we get, the more engraced we become; the humbler we get, the more lifted we get.
Humility means the capacity to receive positive and constructive advice.
Humility means the admission of ignorance until proven otherwise. Humility means teach-ability; that is, being teachable.
Some time ago, a young man who submits to me in Ministry was telling me some things; when he was through, I told him to put those things in writing and email them to me. This is how we should live; you are willing to learn from anybody.
Beloved, my counsel is, be tenacious in your approach to life; get closer to God in order to be like Him in humility.
Remember this: The higher a person goes with God, the humbler he becomes.
Assignments:
1. Maintain the lifestyle of tenacity.
2. Make up your mind to be always humble before God and men.
Prayer: O Lord, I ask that You give me the grace to be tenacious and humble. I ask for a buoyant spiritual life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
