Some people love titles. Many titles have been earned through years of hard work, and I respect that. However, sometimes titles can allow people to ‘smell themselves’ and believe their own press, or even be worshiped. That’s why God reminds us to humble ourselves and have a servant’s heart.

Matthew 23:11 (NKJV)

11 But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant.

We must also remember that we are all human, and no one is as GREAT as their prefix or suffix…

President

Dr.

Pastor

Bishop

MBA

MA

SVP

CEO

Esq

Judge

Rev

General

Admiral

Chief

Prime Minister

King

Queen

Father

Pope

Yes, God expects us to submit to leadership (Hebrews 13:17, Romans 13:1). It’s easy to be impressed by those we call great. By their accomplishments…by their confidence…by their authority. But no matter how great or influential, EVERYONE has:

Weakness

Insecurities

Fears

Faults

Immaturity

Limitations

Temptations

Vices

Virtues

No matter how confident…sometimes they just don’t know.

How much authority…they’re just a person doing a job.


Don’t trust anyone anymore than you do yourself in your own greatest strength.

Psalm 146:3-7 (NIV)

Do not put your trust in princes,
    in human beings, who cannot save.
When their spirit departs, they return to the ground;
    on that very day their plans come to nothing.

Or, any less than you do yourself in your greatest weakness.

And, only follow ANYONE as they follow Christ.

1 Corinthians 11:1 (NKJV)

11 Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.


Who’s the only one who lives up to His title?

His name is Yahweh/Elohim…His title is God.

His name is Yeshua/Jeush…His title is Christ.

BE BLESSTIFIED!

God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
