Topic: The Deficiency of Title Without Mantle
Scripture: I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him: Psalms 89:20
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When men struggle for titles, it is to cover up a deficiency; title without mantle leads to battles.
MESSAGE: Yesterday, we identified the craving for recognition one of the major causes of the decay in our generation. We live in a world where many people want to be accorded recognition above what they really are. This is not the will of God.
Seeds of Destiny Daily Devotional Messages: What Real Servanthood Is
Today, it is important to know that one of the manifestations of the craving for recognition is eagerness to accumulate titles.
Even in the house of God, there are a lot of titles or designations being added to the names of ministers of God; titles like Dr, Rev. Dr, Bishop Dr, Prophet Dr, Apostle Professor, etc. some of the men who add these titles to their names have never seen the four walls of the university or any institution of higher learning.
Some of them even claim to have a doctorate degree without a first degree. The question is, is it possible to have a doctorate degree without a first degree? No!
You know when men struggle for titles; it is to cover up a deficiency. There is an emptiness or a vacuum somewhere in their lives that they want to cover up with these titles. They forget to realise that title without mantle leads to battle.
Beloved, let God take you up. Do not struggle for recognition or for titles but for the mantle that will handle the battle; do not struggle to be known by men.
