TOPIC: The Spirit of inferiority
SCRIPTURE: And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight. Number 13:33
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When your mind is changed, everything is changed.
The spirit of inferiority imposes inferiority complex or mentality upon people. It is the state of feeling less important, valuable or worthy than others. The spirit of inferiority makes people feel lower in status, appearance, rank or capability. It makes people feel helpless, hopeless, worthless and miserable.
The spirit of inferiority places a terrible limitation on life and destiny; it is the spirit that makes you think that you can never make it in life. This kind of mentality fuels captivity, adversity and calamity.
Now, take note of the following:
i) Mind-set Determines outcome
Your mind-set is the engine room or manufacturing plant of your destiny. So, if failure fills your heart, failure will be manufactured for you. For instance, people easily commit the sin they have been thinking about (Proverbs 4:23).
ii) Mind-set Determines action
You behave the way you believe. You can only move about with audacity if you have an audacious mentality. You apologise to everybody because you have an apologetic mentality (Habakkuk 2:2).
iii) Mind-set is magnetic
What you meditate on determines what you magnetise. The kind of situation, people and circumstance that come your way is a product of what occupies your mind. You cannot change your life until you change your mind, and when your mind is changed, everything else is changed (Ephesians 3:20).
iii) Mind-set either facilitates or frustrates divine intervention
God answers your thinking (Ephesians 3:20). Those who are always negative, pessimistic, doubtful, fearful and timid will never see God at work.
iv) How you see yourself determines how the enemy sees you and handles you
Your evaluation of yourself is how the enemy values you (Numbers 13:33).
My counsel is, see yourself the way God sees you.
Remember this: When your mind is changed, everything else is changed.
1. Make up your mind to study God’s Word daily in order to understand what God says about you.
2. Reset your mind to believe what God says about you from His Word.
PRAYER: O LORD, I reject every inferiority mentality; I receive grace to believe what You have said about me, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
