Dunamis Seeds Of Destiny 20 December 2023 Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche — Meekness, A Character Trait That Opens Doors
TOPIC: Meekness, A Character Trait That Opens Doors (Seeds Of Destiny 20 December 2023)
SCRIPTURE: But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. James 4:6.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Meekness is a character trait that opens destiny doors of opportunities to people.
Everyone needs open doors in life and in destiny. Doors are opened by keys, and one of the keys for open doors in life and destiny is the right character.
Beloved, the right character is a door opener. One character trait that opens door is called MEEKNESS.
Meekness is a combination of humility and simplicity.
James 4:6 says,
But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
Meekness is a character trait that opens destiny doors of opportunities to people. If God resists the proud, it means the proud has no future.
When people are full of themselves, they are empty of God and empty of people. Nobody wants to hang around the proud; no one is interested in keeping the company of the person who usually puts people down. Nobody wants to hang around the person who does not understand humility, simplicity and meekness.
No one wants to hang around someone who despises or looks down on others.
For instance, some people do not think that you can amount to anything in life. They think that you are not at their level. Such people are full of themselves and empty of both God and people.
You see, it is disastrous for someone to have an air of arrogance around them. Such a person finds it difficult to submit to any authority. They don’t take instructions from anyone. It is as if the whole world revolves around them. They put themselves first in everything they do. In their place of work, the interest of their boss is not their concern. Such a person has no future.
Beloved, if you don’t want God to resist you, embrace the garment of humility; refuse to be proud.
Remember this: Meekness is a character trait that opens destiny doors of opportunities to people.
- Reject every temptation to be proud and arrogant.
- Ask God to clothe you with the garment of humility.
PRAYER: Lord I ask that You deliver me from the lifestyle of pride and arrogance. I receive the grace to be humble Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
