CHANNELS OF FULFILLMENT DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR JUNE 11, 2022 (BELIEVE IN YOURSELF)
TOPIC: Believe in yourself.
Text: (Matthew 27 vs. 6 – 12)
I welcome you before Him who is the source of life. Yes, the everlasting God is the one He is called. I once heard the story that says, “A speed race inspector wanted to know the fastest between the dog and the cheetah. But the cheetah did not move a finger and sat in one place. People asked the race coordinator what happened. He responded after seeing him saying.
“Sometimes trying to prove that you are the best is an insult!” I think we need to separate that sentence and have it in this way, “Trying to prove that you are the best is an insult”. The greatest sign of maturity and growth is when you have risen and migrated to the point that you don’t really want to explain yourself. Sometimes silence is the best reply. No wonder our today’s scripture took us into the dispensation of God’s character where He said in verse 12 of today’s scripture, “And when he was accused of the priest and elders he answered nothing. He was accused yet he answered nothing!
I don’t really know if you understand the weight of that statement; the king of all kings and the Lord of Lords was accused yet he said nothing. I am also aiming to come to that height of maturity. The same was witnessed in the life of Joseph, who answered nothing after he was accused of Potiphar’s wife. Oh, he appeared dull and not smart but that was for a very short time.
When the defence of God came there was no need to explain himself; imagine the level of his crime (as quoted) was not considered, who knows if Potiphar’s wife still lives? I strongely believe that is why the scripture metrified in 8 of Zachariah 12 saying, “In that day shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the Lord before them”. The Lord is the one that will defend in that day.”
- Oh God I thank you for your word to me.
- Jesus, I receive the grace to live and be like you.
- Lord, help me to believe in myself and no talk except when necessary.
