Scripture Reading: Proverbs 18:14
The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity, but a wounded spirit who can bear?
Reflections: The spirit of a man refers to his inner being. According to the writer of Proverbs, it is that part of a man that enables them to withstand adversities and surge on to meet the desired goal mentally. On the basis of this the writer concludes that since the capacity of one’s spirit is crucial to their survival and progress in life, it is important to ensure that we don’t allow our spirit to feel crushed or wounded. Whenever we feel crushed or wounded within, we loose the capacity to control and keep our thoughts focused on achieving our desired goals. The key thing is therefore to disallow the wounding of your spirit to take place, no matter what. To do this, you must not allow negative words, events or actions to overwhelm you. Endeavour to keep your emotions balanced all the time. Be a strong spirited person!
Prayer: Dear Lord, make me a strong spirited person.
Confession: I keep my emotions balanced.
