Seeds of Destiny Daily Devotional August 17, 2017

TOPIC: Living Above Sin – The Pathway To The Top

SCRIPTURE: But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself. – Daniel 1:8-9

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The quality of a man’s life is reduced by iniquity

MESSAGE: From scriptures, it can be established that Daniel, who was taken to Babylon as captive, lived life at its best. He became the head politically, academically and spiritually. The same Daniel purposed in his heart that he will not defile himself with the portion of the Kings food (Daniel 1:8). He ended in excellence and became the best example of whatever he did in Babylon.

We are going to look at the character of Daniel and what it takes to live life at its best.

Daniel was a man who elevated principles above pleasure. This is refusing to violate your principles or lower your standard for anything. Daniel was also a man who elevated conscience above convenience. That is the way to the top in life.

Now, from the life of Daniel, here is one of the ways to live at your best.
You are at your best when you are beyond stain

This is living beyond the stain of sin. Daniel purposed not to defile himself and he lived at his best. The quality of gold or oil is reduced by impurity. The quality of a man’s life is reduced by iniquity. It is not possible to live at your best when you live with the stain of sin.

Among the animals, there are two major animals that are leading in the animal kingdom.

There is one major animal and one major bird that lead in their kingdoms. The animal is called the lion and the bird leading in the air is called the eagle. They both have one thing in common; they do not eat rotten flesh. It is also on record that the eagle has only one mate for life. So, to be a lion or an eagle personality, you must avoid corruption.

Beloved, anything that defiles your conscience is denying you of your destiny. So, in order to live at your best, you must live beyond stain.

Remember this: The quality of a man’s life is reduced by iniquity

ASSIGNMENT (S):
1. Refuse to accommodate anything that defiles the conscience.
2. Avoid any relationship that does not respect your principles.
3. Embark on a consistent study of God’s Word daily.

Seeds of Destiny 15th October 2018 Daily Devotional – Spirituality: The Greatest Need of Life

Seeds of Destiny 15th October 2018 Daily Devotional

Dunamis Seeds of Destiny 15th October 2018 Daily Devotional by Dr. Paul Enenche

TOPIC: Spirituality: The Greatest Need of Life

SCRIPTURE: But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You have not succeeded in life until you have succeeded with God.

Spirituality implies the intensity of Divinity around Humanity. It is the quality or state of being spiritual.

One of the greatest needs of anyone in life, is true and quality spirituality. In fact, spirituality is the greatest need of life. It does not matter if the person is an employer, employee, father, mother, white man, black man, professor, illiterate, etc., his/her strongest need in life is true spirituality.

The truth is, what you need most in life is not more money, name or fame; what you need most in life is God. Irrespective of what you seek in life, seek first the Kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). You have not succeeded in life until you have succeeded with God. The spirituality of a man is like the root of a tree, and the welfare of a tree is determined by its root; if the root is in good shape, the tree must flourish. In the same manner, the spirituality of man is the root and source of sustenance of man’s life. Thus, any venture outside Divine direction has no future. Any progress devoid of spirituality has no destiny.

Beloved, my counsel is, invest in your spirituality; investment in your spirituality is not a waste of investment. Attend to the welfare of your spiritual life above anything else. You shall make it, in Jesus’ Name.

1. Decide to fight against a dry state of spiritual life.
2. Revive and maintain your spiritual fire and intensity via prayer and fasting, the study of the Word, worship, etc.

Seeds of Destiny 14 October 2018 – Mixed Gene-The Bane of Destiny by Dr. Paul Enenche

Seeds of Destiny 14 October 2018 – Mixed Gene-The Bane of Destiny by Dr. Paul Enenche

SCRIPTURE: And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word. 1 Kings 18:21

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Any Christianity that does not affect your identity is iniquity and calamity in disguise. Seeds of Destiny 14 October 2018

Gene is a unit of heredity which is transferred from a parent to an offspring. It is responsible for similarity in manner or attitude of a parent and his/her children. Just as a son is expected to have a peculiar character trait that is in consonance with that of his father, a Christian is also expected to manifest the character and attributes of Christ.

Seeds of Destiny 14 October 2018 – Mixed Gene-The Bane of Destiny by Dr. Paul Enenche

However, the tragedy in our days is that there are many Christians with mixed-genes; mixture of heaven and earth, mixed gene of spirituality and carnality. They are like half Israelites and half Egyptians. They are spiritual mix-ups. They have the origin of heaven but the identity of the earth. It is true that they are Christians, but their identity says otherwise. This is why many people are in church for donkey years but see no result because their sinful character is still intact. Any Christianity that does not affect your identity is iniquity and calamity in disguise. Your identity determines your destiny; your nature determines your future; your attitude determines your outcome. Seeds of Destiny 14 October 2018

In Genesis 2:19, while referring to Moses, the daughters of Jethro told their father that an Egyptian helped them. The question is, was Moses an Egyptian? No! But they called him an Egyptian probably because of the way he dressed and behaved.

Beloved, a mistaken identity is a misplaced destiny. But that shall not be your portion, in Jesus’ Name.

REMEMBER THIS: Any Christianity that does not affect your identity is iniquity and calamity in disguise.

ASSIGNMENTS Seeds of Destiny 14 October 2018:
1. If you want to follow Jesus Christ and be a genuine Christian, come out clearly and be one.
2. Avoid every anti-Christ behaviour in your life; refuse to put one leg in Church and another in the world.
3. Read and reflect on the teachings of today again

PRAYER Seeds of Destiny 14 October 2018: Lord, make me a reflection of Your Image upon the earth, and let the fragrance of Your Presence flow out of my life. Make me a true ambassador of Heaven on earth, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: You cannot make a difference until you are different. Be truly who you are anywhere you go. Culled from 365 WISDOM CAPSULES by Dr Paul Enenche

Seeds of Destiny 13 October 2018 Daily Devotional: Outlook – A Product Of Inward-Look

Published

Seeds of Destiny 15th October 2018 Daily Devotional

Seeds of Destiny 13 October 2018 Daily Devotional by Dr. Paul Enenche

Topic: Outlook – A Product Of Inward-Look

Scripture: A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil:.. Luke 6:45

Thought For The Day: The outward manifestation of a person reveals the content of his/her heart.

Sometime ago, a Christian lady was traveling in a commercial vehicle from Abuja to Lagos, Nigeria. Right in the bus, she strongly felt led to preach the gospel but she noticed that her dressing was not decent, so she decided not to preach. What a heart-touching lesson!

Beloved, any dressing or lifestyle that can hinder you from representing God in the public is not correct. Most people backup their indecency by saying that what they wear does not matter because God looks at the heart. That is not true!

Now imagine this; would you be excited if you see a pastor preaching on the altar with a ring on his ear, another one on his nose, his trousers sagging and dreadlocks on his head? Most members will leave the church and never return.

The truth is, you know a mad man not just by checking the state of his mind but by the crazy things you see him manifest outwardly. In the same manner, when you see a person seductively, suggestively or provocatively dressed, that person could be morally loose, have high tendencies for immorality or nursing immoral thoughts in his/her heart regardless of the title or position he/she occupies in church. Such a person can never be taken seriously by unbelievers.

Seeds of Destiny 13 October 2018 Daily Devotional: Outlook – A Product Of Inward-Look

Thus, the outward manifestation of a person reveals the content of his/her heart.

Beloved, make up your mind to be decent in character, dressing and lifestyle.

Remember This: The outward manifestation of a person reveals the content of his/her heart.

Assignments:

1. Whatever is not your intention must not command your attention; don’t be taken for what you don’t want to be known for. Never let your appearance misrepresent you.
2. Refuse to appear in such a way that would lead other people to hell fire.

Prayer: O Lord, I thank You for Your Word to me today. I make demands on Your grace to maintain a decent lifestyle in dressing. I refuse to be a source of temptation to people around me, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: SEVEN-WAY LIFESTYLE TEST

Quote: Who you look at determines what you look like; if you look at Christ, you must look like Christ. Culled from 365 WISDOM CAPSULES by Dr Paul Enenche.
