THEME: HUMILITY IS NECESSARY
TEXT: GALATIANS 5:22
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith.
MEMORY: If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 CHRONICLES 7:13-14

The reason is because they have not humbled themselves. God resist the proud and give grace to the humble.
From the above, you can see the danger in pride and haughtiness and the gains of humility. Therefore, no matter how the table has turned against you, there is something that can turn it around even more quickly: humility.

1. O God, sanctify my spirit, soul and body. Give me the grace for inner
purity, in Jesus’ name.
2. I come against the spirit of pride and haughtiness assigned to derail
my salvation, in Jesus’ name.
3. Father, I ask that you give me a broken spirit and a contrite heart, in
4. Let the fruits of the spirit begin to manifest in my life, in Jesus’ name.
5. O God my Father, I ask that you heal my life and economy, in Jesus’
