TOPIC: THERAPY FOR THE SPIRIT OF INFERIORITY
(FROM AUGUST 2018 SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR. PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE)
FRIDAY 17TH AUGUST,”2018
SCRIPTURE”: Then said I,”Ah, Lord God! behold, I cannot speak”: for I am a child. But the Lord said unto me,”Say not, I am a child”: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee,”and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak. Jeremiah 1″:6-7.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It does not matter how negative what anybody has said about you; as long as God was not the one who said it,”everything is under control.
Previously, we established that the spirit of inferiority is a limitation of life and destiny. A person’s mind-set either facilitates or frustrates Divine intervention. How you see yourself determines how the enemy sees you and handles you. This means, the mind-set of inferiority results in a life of inferiority. Inferiority complex limits a person’s destiny.
Having known this, what is the therapy for the spirit of inferiority?
i) See yourself the way God sees you
Look into the Bible and make a decision to see yourself the way God sees you (1Peter 2″:9).
ii) Refuse to settle for what people say about you
Refuse to settle for the negative things people say about you. You can prove people wrong. I have proved people wrong in many ways in my life. Right from childhood,”I have had negative utterances heaped against me from different people; some of them are very close to me. They never believed that I could amount to anything in life. But today, by the grace of God, many of the people who doubted what I would become in life have received help from me many times (Lamentations 3″:37).
Beloved,”God has the final say. Accept and believe only what God says about you. It does not matter how negative what anybody said about you; as long as God was not the one who said it, everything is under control. It does not matter what they have said about you, if God did not say it and you refuse to believe it, you have no problem. For example, some people might have said that you can never get married in life or that you can never succeed. It is only confirmed if you believe it; if not, it will never come to pass. You will succeed and excel contrary to any negative pronouncement over your life in Jesus’ Name.
My counsel is, discard people’s negative opinions about your life; believe only what God says about you in His Word (Proverbs 19″:21).
Remember this: It does not matter how negative what anybody has said about you; as long as God was not the one who said it,”everything is under control.
1. Do not allow yourself to be swayed,”distracted or discouraged by people’s negative opinions about you.
2. Accept and believe God’s word about your life from the Scriptures.
PRAYER”: O Lord,”I reject every negative opinion and pronouncement about my life and destiny contrary to Your Word. I receive the grace to see, believe and become what You have said about me in Your Word, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
