Topic – Take Heed To Yourself
SCRIPTURE: Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. – 1 Corinthians 10:12
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Never be too anointed to be corrected; if you cannot be corrected you cannot be assisted
Many years ago, while I was in the medical school, there was a young man whom God was helping me to bring up in the Lord. I was like a spiritual mentor to him. But after a while I couldn’t understand his operations and moves anymore. At a point, he decided to follow up a sister but the follow-up looked somehow. Both of them would lock themselves up in the same room praying together for three to four hours. So, I met him and asked, brother, what is happening? And he said to me, ‘you see, when eagles are operating, vultures cannot understand them.’ That is, I, the same person who was bringing him up spiritually was now a vulture and he had become an eagle overnight? Unbelievable!
So, I kept my cool, and the ‘eagles’ continued to manifest. Gradually, the girl’s body started changing; she became fairer in complexion. I asked her, ‘Sister, what is happening?’ and she said, ‘It is the glory of the Lord.’
It continued until one day when she complained that she had stomach upset and the father took her to the hospital. After the doctor examined her, he looked at her father and said, ‘Where are the baby things’ thinking that the father was her husband. The daughter was pregnant for nine months from the ‘eagle’ manifestation yet nobody was aware; how they covered it remains a mystery. The pregnancy was the outcome of such an ‘eagle’ manifestation.
Beloved, never forget your root in life; to forget your root is to forfeit your fruit. Never be too anointed to be corrected; if you cannot be corrected you cannot be assisted. Don’t be too big to be mentored.
But you shall not fail, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: Never be too anointed to be corrected; if you cannot be corrected you cannot be assisted
- Never be over confident as regards temptation; flee every appearance of evil.
- Ensure you have a spiritual cover over your life, someone who speaks into your life and corrects you when necessary.
- Never resist the person God used to assist you in time past.
PRAYER: Lord, I make demands on Your grace to flee from every appearances of evil. Help me to place high value on the spiritual cover You have placed over my life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
QUOTE: Nothing suffocates a man’s destiny like pride. To be without a father is to be without a future. If you cannot be instructed, you cannot be assisted. Culled from ‘365 Wisdom Capsules’ by Dr Paul Enenche
