APPLYING A SPIRITUAL WEEDICIDE AGAINST THE SEED OF A “PROUD LOOK” ( PROV. 6:17)
When I was growing up as a little boy there has being moments in my life when I ask myself this question, “Why did God Created others Rich and others are poor?” Are we not all created in the image of God? Yes! We are, will be the simplest and straightforward answer that I will get from anyone that I will happen to confront with this kind of question. So if mankind was Created in the image of God, How come we have people that society Considered superior and on the other side consider others as inferior? Why is there a Master and a servant, A leader and a follower, a king and a subject. I believe God established such human based institutions for a better reason and also to serve a particular purpose. The Amplified Bible went further to explain the seed of a “ Proud Look” as the Spirit that makes one overestimate himself and underestimate others. From the Oxford dictionary Proud is said to be Having or Showing a HIGH or EXCESSIVELY high opinion of oneself or importance. The word Proud has some synonyms such as, arrogant, conceited, scornful, pompous, supercilious, full of oneself, puffed up. etc. So after careful meditation of the scripture I realised there are some kind of Seeds that are growing in men from all aspect of life, I quickly asked myself Are we aware that many of us are nurturing and housing something that are called small spirits or unwanted seeds? How many times have you look down Upon someone because of their present situation. You may be at fault and I may also be at fault. A proud Look come in many forms such as people’s Socio-economic standard of living, Educational background, Marital status, Spiritual Challenge, family issues, disabilities, failures, disappointments, and even for the mere fact of who they are. You can defend yourself as much as you want but I want to bring to your attention that you are Nurturing a Kind of Spirit that is abominable to God and it is time you have to apply a “SPIRITUAL WEEDICIDE” to those unwanted seeds. So from Idris Elba, the man that Came low to his African root to dig out a precious gold that no one thought of one Abraham Atta and featured him in the Movie “Beast of No Nation” said and I quote, “I’m an ambitious person. I never consider myself in competition with anyone, and I’m not saying that from an arrogant standpoint, it’s just that my journey started so, so long ago, and I’m still on it and I won’t stand still.” (Idris Elba). We were all created in the image of God and for that reason we should not allow our accomplishments, achievements and status in life define how we relate to other people. So in the book of Psalms 101 verse number 5, it is written “Whoever Slanders his neighbor secretly I will destroy. Whoever has a haughty look and an arrogant heart I will not endure”. The word of God is good for reproach and all corrections that is why is imperative that we apply the Spiritual weedicide which can destroy this Seed of Proud Look. It is time we destroy the Walls that Surround Us so that we can build Bridges which will lead the weak, the deprived, and people that we thought of the them as low class because of any form of insufficiency to ourselves. Do not underestimate anyone in life because the People that you see when Climbing Up are the same people you will meet when you are coming down. APPLY YOUR SPIRITUAL WEEDICIDE AND DESTROY ANY SEED OF “PROUD LOOK” WHICH IS ABOMINABLE TO GOD IN YOU.
