Seeds Of Destiny (SOD) Devotional, 28 October 2020 – The Grasshopper Mentality By Pastor Paul Enenche
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
It has been confirmed that one deadly enemy of destiny is called inferiority complex, rejection or low self-esteem.
Dr Mike Murdock calls it the “Grasshopper mentality”. It is the mentality one has when one says, “I am not like other people. I cannot make it in life. God does not love me. Other people can succeed but not me.” Inferior mentality or low self-esteem is the strength of captivity, adversity and calamity. Resist it!
In Numbers 13:33, where Dr Mike Murdock got the phrase, the “Grasshopper mentality”, the Bible says, “And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.”
Can you see how the children of Israel saw themselves? They saw themselves as grasshoppers; that is, they were confined by their mentality to the grass.
When people talk, they simply manifest the mentality they have in them. For instance, you tell someone, “I saw your name as one of the new employees the Central Bank of Nigeria just shortlisted. Are you not John Michael?” And he may say, “Me? Who ‘dash monkey banana?’ It must be another John Michael.” He has limited his destiny to that of a monkey and its constant feeding on banana because of inferiority complex. That will never be your portion in Jesus’ Name.
Beloved, determine never to be resisted by inferiority complex.
Remember this: Inferior mentality or low self-esteem is the strength of captivity, adversity and calamity.
1. Refuse to belittle yourself and God’s purpose for your life.
2. Reject every grasshopper mentality.
3. See yourself the way God sees you.
