Victory Intoxication

I saw an animation some days ago and in it was a bird who was constantly failing when trying to fly, he would try but somehow it’d go bad. A flying competition was opened among the birds and this not so good at flying bird said I’ll do it. It started and for a while it felt like he was losing until he started ranging with the best, was going faster and higher and then he won. Immediately he won, he became everyone’s fan so the head of the birds said now that you’ve won this I can now sleep at night while you guard the eggs that haven’t hatched.

Excited much he felt so proud that he was now relevant in the birds society(lol) until night when he was guarding the unhatched eggs, this creeping animals came and they wanted to take the eggs, he tried to fight them but was tossed away because he didn’t have the capacity.
This made the leader of the colony who earlier said he was going to sleep wake all of a sudden so he could protect the eggs but as he was doing that they took an egg and left the champion bird injured.

This got me thinking, some of us are like this bird, a particular victory comes and everyone including you suddenly feels like you are supposed to be occupying a higher position whereas you do not have the capacity. It’s just like a child who is a heir of his Father’s inheritance who feels he should start managing them, he will only mess it up and most likely squander everything.
See Galatians 4:1-2

One thing we must trust God for is the ability to discern His heart whether He has given us capacity for a particular phase or not.
Oh no! We must not be pressured by people or by ourselves to think we already can do it when in actual sense we already sense the Holy Spirit letting us know that this is not what I want for you now, It’s a distraction!

Today and always we implore you to never allow victory intoxicate you to a point that you get pressured and forget that you do not have capacity for it, instead keep growing and you’d know when God wants you to launch.

You are blessed!❤️

Here’s an invite to be part of the feast Jesus has prepared for you, you will only partake of it by being washed in His precious blood that was shed for you. Today choose Jesus!
