TITLE: DEALING WITH THE ROOT OF EXCUSES (2)
AUTHORED BY PASTOR CHARLES AND FAVOUR CHUKWUEMEZIE
NUMBERS 13:31-32 “But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we. And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.”
How can people go to spy a land, saw goodness and good fruits in the land, turn around and come back to say that they are not able to take the land, and even added that they were like grasshoppers in their own sight and in the sight of their enemies?
This can only be the work of mediocrity. Mediocrity is another root of excuses apart from fear.
A mediocre is comfortable with being just there, ordinary, insignificant and irrelevant. They never believe they can measure up to any task or responsibility. A mediocre prefers to hide and claim to be either shy, or an introvert. Mediocrity is a state of low quality. A mediocre does not see the greatness within.
Anytime you see yourself sneaking away from responsibilities, never accepting that you are capable of doing something great and commendable, everytime you disappear because they’re considering passing the baton to you, you might just be displaying mediocrity.
If you always dodge away from a duty because you consider some other people better than you, you need to kick mediocrity out of your life. Be willing to take risk.
It is one thing to decline a task when you already know it’s not your area of specialty, but it is another to find out you have that habit of not wanting to do anything worthwhile.
It’s time to begin to speak like Joshua and Caleb… “WE ARE WELL ABLE”
It’s not pride, it’s just the spirit of confidence taking over!
PRAYER AND DECLARATION
I REFUSE LOW MINDEDNESS, I AM NOT A MEDIOCRE, I AM WELL ABLE… HALLELUJAH
