Bible Reading: Galatians 6: 3-4

Memory Verse: A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit. Proverbs 29:23 (KJV) 

Allow me to get into your space by asking for answers to the following questions:

  1. When was the last time you read a good book or listened to something inspirational?
  • When was the last time you honestly took inventory of your life?  
  • When was the last time you admitted mistakes and corrected them?

4. When was the last time you sat down with someone asking growth aligned questions?

5.Who is mentoring, discipling or coaching you? 6. How do you respond to feedback – whether negative or positive? 7. Whose company do you enjoy most? Is it people who challenge you to do better or people who make you feel comfortable?

How Do You Uproot The Arrival Mentality?

  1. Admit to your limitations: The first mind blockage you need to flush out of your system is “I-know-it-all” mentality. It takes character to own up to one’s deficiencies – don’t wait for circumstances to prove to you are lacking in certain areas.

2. Great humility (James 4:10, Prov. 29:23): Growth takes place when one carries a teachable spirit. To carry a teachable spirit, you need to be humble. This is the ability to lower yourself in order to allow someone to show you how it is done. What is stopping you from looking for genuine help concerning your situation? Despite Apollos being an eloquent teacher, he was humble enough to allow Aquila and Priscilla teach him one or two things (Acts 18:18-28). Humility makes one approachable – sometimes you look at someone and you clearly see that they can do with a bit of help but the chip on their shoulder makes it impossible to reach them. Humility allows you to re-evaluate what you have grown to believe as truth. Biblical humility is simply agreeing with what God is saying about you. In the old testament, we see the great leader Moses being reprimanded by his father in law Jethro.  Moses didn’t have to listen but he did (Exodus 18:13-27).

3. Overcome the stagnation of past and current success: The greatest enemy of tomorrow’s success may be today’s success. This happens when a blessing turns into a curse – what had empowered you to prosper in the past becomes an empowerment for failure in the future. In some cases, the seed for tomorrow’s success is contained in today’s failures. Success often hinders the pursuit for growth. God never called us to settle – we need an attitudinal shift. Paul had achieved much but even towards his death, he kept pressing on towards the goal. The ultimate goal is to hear the Father saying “Well done good and faithful servant”.

Quote: Humility is the surest path to continuous increase.

Prophetic Decree: Today is the beginning of your new beginnings, in Jesus mighty name.

Prayer Focus

1. I reject arrival mentality in the name of Jesus.

2. O God, cloth me with the garment of humility and honour, in Jesus name.

3. My Father, deliver me from the lies I tell myself, in Jesus name.

4. My past successes shall not limit my present pursuit in Jesus name.

5. I receive grace to accept my wrongs and work to correct it in Jesus name.
