TOPIC: Humility – A Sign of Spirituality by Paul Enenche ( Seeds of Destiny 24 October 2018)
SCRIPTURE: Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. James 4:10
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Limitation in humility is the limitation of destiny.
MESSAGE: Humility is the quality of having a modest view of one’s importance. Humility means being devoid of an exaggerated lifestyle.
Now, there is a connection between humility and spirituality. Spiritual people are humble people, and until your humility is in place, your destiny is not in view. It is the limit of your spirituality that determines the limit of your humility, and the limit of your humility determines the limit of your destiny. Thus, limitation in humility is the limitation of destiny.
Now, two ways a person can be imparted with humility are:
1. The humility of spirituality
In this, the virtue of Jesus Christ Who is the emblem of humility flows on a true child of God willing to possess the same virtue.
2. The humility of adversity
This is the humility that is imparted by adversity or calamity. For example, when King Nebuchadnezzar refused to humble himself before God, adversity took him to the wilderness and imparted him with humility (Daniel 4:1-37). The same was spoken of the prodigal son. He became so incapacitated by poverty that he even desired pig’s meal and could not get any to eat; his mentality got adjusted and humility was imparted (Luke 15:11-32).
My counsel is, embrace the humility of spirituality in order to escape the humility of adversity. You shall make it, in Jesus’ Name.

REMEMBER THIS: Limitation in humility is the limitation of destiny.
1. Do not wait until adversity humbles you, be humbled through spirituality.
2. Always realize that what you are and all that you have were given to you by God; so, avoid the pathway of pride and arrogance.
PRAYER: Lord, deliver me from the spirit of pride and arrogance. I receive fresh baptism and grace for spiritual intensity and absolute humility Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
