Story is told of a little boy who at an early age was adopted by a family of monkeys after losing both his parents who after a period of 5years trained him to live and behave like a monkey. He is eventually rescued and put in an orphanage around Kampala where he’s taught how to live like a human, how to talk, walk, eat, clean up like a human unlike the monkeys he’d been accustomed to. This boy was a human but had been nurtured and trained like a monkey because it is the monkeys that raised him; they suppressed all his human abilities and had to be taught how to function like a human.
As a child of God, you have to unlock your potential and capabilities and this you do by the word of God and by releasing it to your atmosphere to change into what pleases God. You ought to unlearn all things that are not consistent with God and his nature and learn all things God for then can you step into the nature and character of God and thus win on all you do to the Glory of God.
SCRIPTURE READING: James 1:22-25 KJV But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Father in the name of Jesus, help me live out the fulness of the potential you have embedded in me in the name of Jesus.
