SPIRITUALITY – THE VEHICLE FOR TENACITY AND HUMILITY
By DIGC 22 September 2019
The more spiritual people get, the humbler they become because the Almightiness of God always reveals the nothingness of man.
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: Spirituality facilitates optimism, positivism and enthusiasm.
We have been on a journey of exploring the products of authentic spirituality, and we shall be taking it a little further. It is clear to note that to ignore your spirituality is to sign for frustration. Today, we are going to look at other products of spirituality.
1. Spirituality is doorway to tenacity
Authentic spirituality imparts on a person the capacity to withstand pressure in order to keep on keeping on. Job who was a man of deep spirituality said, ‘…all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come (Job 14:14). Spirituality facilitates optimism, positivism and enthusiasm. A spiritual person is a real fighter; he does not give up easily or take NO for an answer.
2. Spirituality anchors humility
The more spiritual people get, the humbler they become because the Almightiness of God always reveals the nothingness of man. And the humbler we get, the more en-graced and lifted we become. Humility means the capacity to receive advice, the admission of ignorance until proven otherwise. Humility also implies a moderate estimation of oneself. There are many people God would have taken to higher dimensions in life but for the limit of their humility.
Beloved, intensify your spiritual fire and surrender yourself completely to God, and the nature of God will be expressed effortlessly in you.
Remember this: Spirituality facilitates optimism, positivism and enthusiasm.
1. Determine to maintain spiritual intensity by God’s grace.
2. Make demands on God for the spirit of humility.
3. Determine to be tenacious in the pursuit of God’s purpose for your life and destiny.
