Upgrade Your Mentality – Seeds Of Destiny Devotional, 28th March 2022
SCRIPTURE: For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee. Proverbs 23:7
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Pride is an exaggerated estimation of who you are but boldness is audacity with correct estimation of self.
In life, mentality sets the pace for reality. That is why to win the battle in the mind is to win the battles of life.
For instance, there is a mentality that governs the conduct of members of the royal family. When anyone is born into certain royal families, they are given a chaperon from babyhood to teach them that they are royalty; they teach them behaviours fitting for royalty, including the proper way to walk, how to eat, etc. They are told, “There is a way to eat; and you do not eat in public. You are not like everyone; you are different. You are the one who owns the whole of this empire. So, you cannot behave anyhow.”
They teach royal children all these things and then they grow up knowing that they are royalties.
One day, one of my children asked me, “Daddy, who taught you how to walk?” I said, “Nobody.” You know, there is something inside you that would organize your steps. There is boldness, light and insight that just organizes your moves anywhere you go. There is the confidence stride of a lion. You do not look beggarly; you respect people, but you are not pitiable. You know, pride is an exaggerated estimation of who you are but boldness is audacity with correct estimation. You respect everyone but you do not appear timid before anyone.
Beloved, be aware that you are not the same with everyone; your case is not their case. You may not be there yet but you are on your way. So, continually upgrade your mentality.
Remember this: Pride is an exaggerated estimation of who you are but boldness is audacity with correct estimation.
1. Refuse to let people make you feel inferior.
2. See yourself the way God sees you.
3. Renew your mind daily with the Word of God.
PRAYER: Lord, thank You for making me in Your great Image. I carry Your DNA. Therefore, I refuse to be small. Everything about me reflects Your greatness. I walk in abundance and the lines are falling unto me in pleasant places, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
