Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional October 6th – Appreciate Others

(It’s Not Always About You)

TO THE BIBLE: Ephesians 4:2 CEV
“Always be humble and gentle. Patiently put up with each other and love each other.”

LET’S TALK
Truly prosperous and successful people are often very humble, humble enough to recognise that the Lord can use others as much as He can use them.

This is unlike some others who believe God uses only them to accomplish any major thing in their family, school, nation, or church. If God were to do anything without them being in the limelight, they wouldn’t accept it. That’s selfishness, and no one can walk with the Spirit of God with such an attitude.

If you truly desire to glorify the Lord and see His righteousness exalted in the hearts of people everywhere, then it doesn’t matter who He uses to accomplish it.

The most important thing is that through His Church, His purpose and desire for the nations and peoples of the world are being fulfilled.

Learn to bless the Lord and praise Him when He does something good for, or through, someone else. When someone else is esteemed better than you, it shouldn’t hurt your ego in any way; be happy for that person, because it’s for the glory of God.

He promotes each one of us, blesses and works in our lives in accordance with His dream and destiny for us. Never feel that no one else deserves to be ahead of you.

The Bible says, “…“Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,” says the Lord of hosts” (Zechariah 4:6). That someone else is succeeding doesn’t mean you’re failing.

Be appreciative of the successes of others and praise the Lord on their behalf. When God sees that humility in your life, He’ll lift you; He’ll promote you. Be that youngster who genuinely appreciates and celebrates the successes and victories of others.

I’m full of mercy, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering, seeing people in the same light that the Lord sees them, without disdain for anyone. Glory to God!
