    Dunamis’ Daily Devotional May 29, 2017 by Pastor Paul Enenche - THE MENTALITY FOR ENDURING GREATNESS

    THE MENTALITY FOR ENDURING GREATNESS


    SCRIPTURE: ‘For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…’ Proverbs 23:7.

    THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To arrive too soon is to arrive too small.

    Sometime ago, I travelled with my wife, Dr Becky Enenche to China. While in China, I learnt many things. One of the lessons I learnt was about China as a country.
    Few years ago, China and her citizens were struggling as a third world nation; they were far behind America and Japan in terms of development.

    Today, going by every available record, I do not know how many cities in the world can be compared to the cities in China in terms of development. The American economy at global level is being threatened by the rapid growth of China’s economy.

    The amazing thing is that despite their developmental strides, the President of China told the Chinese that they should still see China as a third world nation. That is to say they should not allow the arrival mentality to have a grip on their minds.

    What a mentality! No wonder they are where they are today in terms of development. This is the mentality for enduring greatness.

    Beloved, to arrive too soon is to arrive too small. When you reach the peak, you are set for the pit. The reason for the abortion of several destinies is the decision to conform to premature contentment.

    Remember this: To arrive too soon is to arrive too small.

    ASSIGNMENT (s):
    1. Refuse to conform to premature contentment.
    2. Always let God know that you cannot achieve anything without Him.

    PRAYER: Enlarge my heart O LORD to see the possibilities of achieving greater things in life and give me the grace to achieve them. Deliver me, from the arrival mentality, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.

    FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: POTENTIAL IS NOT ENOUGH.

    DAILY READING: 2 Samuel 12:1 to 31, John 16:1 to 33, Psalm 119:65 to 80, Proverbs 16:4 to 5.

    QUOTE: You cannot rub minds with the Almighty God and be a dull person. Culled from 10 PRINCIPAL SECRETS OF PRINCIPAL PEOPLE by Dr Paul Enenche.

    AMAZING FACT: The blue whale has a heart the size of a small car and its blood vessel is so broad, that a person could swim through it.
