SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR NOVEMBER 15, 2022 (THE FRUITS OF TRUE SPIRITUALITY)
TOPIC: THE FRUITS OF TRUE SPIRITUALITY
SCRIPTURE: But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Nothing refines character like spirituality.
One of the greatest needs of anyone is the need for true spirituality. The real need of man is spiritual. When the spiritual is handled, the natural follows.
What spirituality is to man is like what the root is to a tree. You know, the welfare of a tree is determined by its root. If the root is good, the tree will be good. So also, the welfare of man – be it physical or spiritual, depends on his spirituality.
So, in our study today, we will look at five things that solid spirituality will produce in the life of a person.
1. Spirituality is a doorway to responsibility. Every true spiritual person is a highly responsible person. No one can genuinely know God and be a bad husband or wife. Nothing refines character like spirituality. The closer to God we get the more like God we become (2 Corinthians 3:18).
2. Spirituality sharpens mentality. The closer to God we get, the more like God we think (Proverbs 13:20). No one can be closely related to the Almighty and All-Wise God and be a fool.
3. Spirituality is a doorway to reliability. The closer people get to God, the more reliable they become in their character (Daniel 6:3). So, the limit of spirituality is the limit of reliability, and reliability is foundation for authority.
4. Spirituality is a doorway to tenacity. The tenacity to withstand pressures, the capacity to keep on keeping on in life depends on spirituality (Job 14:14).
5. 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 of God’s grace we access (James 4:6).
My counsel is, make up your mind to maintain vibrant and fervent spirituality. Devote time to prayer and the study of the Word.
Remember this: Nothing refines character like spirituality.

AMAZING FACT: Horses have a near 360-degree vision. They do however, have blind spots directly in front and behind them. It is extremely dangerous to stand behind a horse as they are liable to kick out if they get scared by anything because kicking out is their way of defending themselves.
