Topic: Devaluation – Satan’s Weapon For Attacking Great Destinies [Friday April 6, 2018]
Scripture: But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows. Luke 12:7
Thought For The Day: When you are being devalued, it is a sign that there is greatness in you.
It has been confirmed that our God is the God of value and worth; this is because all His works and creatures, including man, are creatures of value. None of His creatures was designed to be worthless. This is why anything that devalues the works of God cannot be God but satan.
Hence, one weapon of the devil’s attack on greatness is devaluation. I give you few examples:
Joseph had great potentials and dreams of great destiny but his brothers devalued him and sold him as a slave.
David was another man who was devalued; when it was time to anoint a king, no one called him because they thought he was not a personality for the throne; he wasn’t considered a royal material.
What about Jesus Christ the Creator of the universe? Judas Iscariot valued Him at thirty pieces of silver which was the value of a slave. What devaluation!
When I was in Primary 2, I was playing with my classmates one day, then our school teacher looked at me and said ‘Look at that one there; you are nothing’ (paraphrased). She concluded that I would not be anything in life by her assessment. But the good news is, the same old school teacher had come for aid many years later and was assisted.
Beloved, when you are being devalued, it is a sign that there is greatness in you. The truth is, no human being can accurately measure your value; no examination can measure your true potentials. The fact that you failed an examination does not mean you are not intelligent.
My counsel for you is, wipe out your negative devaluation by people from your mind. Renew your mind always with God’s Word and believe what God says about you.
Remember this: When you are being devalued, it is a sign that there is greatness in you.
1. Do not rely on human verdict concerning your life.
2. Reject every negative utterance made against you by people.
3. Renew your mind with God’s Word always.
Prayer: O Lord, I ask for the revelation of the true picture of my life and destiny. Give me the grace to believe Your Word concerning me, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
