It is never a crime not to know everything you need to know about a certain area of life. But it becomes an issue when you find it difficult to approach someone who knows better than you for you to know how to do it better than you are doing now.
Pride put limitations on people’s progress. It is not enough to pray to God to send help. Just imagine the look on all the Israelites faces when David arrived at Succoth that day and volunteered to fight Goliath; Imagine if they all kicked against the idea. There are blessings God deposits in ordinary places and ordinary people. It takes humility to access such blessings sometimes!

John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Whatever happens in the physical has first been orchestrated in the Spiritual, our lives as humans has its source in the Spirit. If you cannot be active in the Spirit, you cannot be in tune with God.
You have a place with God only when you can connect to Him via your Spirit. Remember in Him we live and move and have our being, if your Spirit man is weak, the manifestation will be seen in the physical. Awaken your Spirit man!
Talk to God: Dear God, help me to never disconnect from you in Jesus name, amen.

Romans 8:5 ESV “For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.”
Read John 6:63, Christ reveals to us how the Spirit of God is the only provisioning that brings about life. What do we call life? Any living body must have some traits, these are only noticeable in true children of God.
Are you a stranger to good health, miraculous lifestyle, divine provision and those Spiritual amenities? Check yourself if you are still living. Live in the Spirit, be extraordinary!
Talk to God: Father, give me grace to remain alive in your Spirit in Jesus name, amen!

Topic: Focus on Looking Ahead
Proverbs 4:25 ESV “Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you.”
One attribute that keeps the best achievers going is looking forward, getting ahead. God knows how life can be full of ups and downs and He promises to remain with us in all of these. However, it is important to step forward whenever it seems we hit a block of hindrance.
People who succeed are never afraid of failure, they keep trying and growing, learning and not pining from past mistakes, and you, too can decide to be one. An advantage that makes all the difference is knowing God, it sets you apart and gives you good success. Start looking ahead!
Talk to God: Father, please ignite the winning mentality in me in Jesus’ name, amen!

Hebrews 12:2 “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
We continue today, to see more about the calling to remain. This opening text tells us to look into Christ, the one to whom our allegiance is and the one we have chosen to learn from.
Have you heard of or seen students who come out of school with nothing to show for it? Many fall in this category by the reason of misplaced priorities. If you have chosen to remain with Christ, focus on learning from Him.
Talk to God: Father, help me avoid distractions as I follow you in Jesus name, amen.
