Scripture Reading: 2 Corinthians 4: 8-9

Memory verse for the week:      2 Cor.10:12

“For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.” (NKJV)

On a particular day, a speaker got a 500 naira note and held it up for all to see, I thought I knew what’s up. But he just asked a simple question.

“How much is this worth?” “Five Hundred naira!” the crowd yelled in unison. “Right,” said the speaker. He then took the note and crumpled it into a ball and asked “How much is it worth now?”

“Five Hundred naira!” screamed the audience.

 He then threw the note on the ground, stamped all over it and picked up the note and asked one more time: “And how much is it worth now?” “Five Hundred naira!” was the response.

“I want you to remember this,” said the speaker. “Just because someone crumples it, or stamps on it, the value of the note does not diminish. We should all be like the 500 naira note”.

Humm…that’s it! The speaker is the Holy Spirit who is always speaking into our hearts. In our lives, there will be times when we feel crushed, stamped over, beaten and defeated. But never forget your identity in Christ. You are the head and not the tail, you are made for excellence (Deut.28: 13). No power can overcome you (2 Tim.4:18). Your present situation may not be the best but very soon, things will turn around for good (Job 8:7). Just because someone or situation chooses to crush you, that doesn’t change your worth one bit! Don’t allow your self-worth to diminish because someone says something nasty or does something dirty to you.

Hear the Spirit speak to the Church. You are blessed. Amen



  • Challenges of life will not swallow me, in the name of Jesus.
