Seeds of Destiny 10th August 2018: The Cure for Depression by Dr. Paul Enenche

(FROM AUGUST 2018 SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR. PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE)

FRIDAY 10TH AUGUST, 2018

TOPIC: The Cure for Depression

SCRIPTURE: To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified. Isaiah 61:3

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Living in one room apartment with joy is better than living in a duplex with depression.

MESSAGE: Depression is a long-term state of mind characterised with extreme unhappiness and inability to visualize a happy future. It is a powerfully negative mood that interferes with daily life. Depression is more than sadness. Depressed people feel sad, empty, despondent, disinterested and lethargic. That shall never be your portion in Jesus’ Name.

Depression is a major destroyer of life and destiny. It is a major sponsor of oppression. Depression opens the door for oppression because satan is at work where depression is. Depression is doorway to the destruction of destiny. People commit suicide not when they are excited but when they are depressed.

Depression also frustrates discretion; it affects reasoning. Whenever a man is depressed, his reasoning pathways are blocked. He lacks the capacity to find solution; he is too depressed to think about a way out because depression blocks the mind.

Having seen the dangers of depression, what then is the cure for depression?

1. Fight depression
Fight the spirit of heaviness; fight depression (Isaiah 61:3).Refuse to be depressed despite the prevailing circumstance. Let God’s Word fuel your joy – Jeremiah 15:16.

2. Rejoice in the Lord
Rejoice when the devil wants you to cry; sing when he wants you to mourn and dance when he wants you to lie down. Do the opposite of what the devil wants from you, and he will run mad (Philippians 4:4).

3. Watch your environment
If you do not want to be depressed, watch your environment. There are depression-provoking pictures you should avoid and houses you may have to move out from in order to maintain your joy in the Lord. Living in a room apartment with joy is better than living in a duplex with depression.

Beloved, you must guard your joy with jealousy; avoid depression.

Remember this: Living in one room apartment with joy is better than living in a duplex with depression.

Seeds of Destiny 19 October 2018 – Christ Being Visible Through Your Life – Pastor Paul Enenche

READ Previous Seeds of Destiny Daily Devotional

TOPIC: Christ Being Visible Through Your Life

SCRIPTURE: I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God cannot own you and you are looking like the child of the devil.

Seeds of Destiny 19 October 2018 Message: Previously, we saw that a lot of people answered the call to give their lives to Christ whenever such call is made, but in reality, they did not really understand what they were doing. So, we tried to understand what it really meant to give one’s life to Christ. We saw that giving one’s life to Christ entails, relinquishing the ownership of one’s life to God, amongst others.

Today, we shall consider another important point of what it means to give your life to Christ. This understanding is important because everyone is a product of his understanding.

Now, another meaning of giving your life to Christ is:
Christ Being Seen In You
This means, having the mark of Jesus Christ on your life; it means that you have become the brand of Christ. For instance, when you see a product manufactured in China, on that product, it would be boldly written, ‘Made in China’. If it was made in Japan, it would be written, ‘Made in Japan’. Also, during the era of slave trade, the owners of the slaves engraved their marks on the slaves they owned. A slave is not permitted to bear another slave owner’s mark. As it is in the physical, so it is in the spiritual. God cannot own you and you are looking like the child of the devil; resemblance is also a proof of ownership.

Beloved, my counsel is, come to the point where believers and unbelievers are able to see or feel Jesus Christ when they come close to you by the way you dress, talk or by your attitude.

REMEMBER THIS: God cannot own you and you are looking like the child of the devil.

Seeds of Destiny 19 October 2018 ASSIGNMENTS:
1. Take out some time to examine yourself by asking the following questions: Do I look like Christ? Do I act or behave like Christ? Do people hear Christ when I speak?
2. Respond appropriately to your answers above by adjusting your life to God’s standard.

PRAYER: O Lord, remove every character or nature in me that does not resemble You. Put Your mark of ownership on my life Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: GIVE YOUR LIFE TO CHRIST

QUOTE: Existing without Jesus Christ is existing without a just cause; life becomes toxic outside of Christ. Culled from 365 WISDOM CAPSULES by Dr Paul Enenche

DAILY READING: Jeremiah 33:1 to 34:22, 1 Timothy 4:1 to 16, Psalm 89:1 to 13, Proverbs 25:23 to 24

AMAZING FACT: A hen turns her eggs nearly 50 times each day to keep the yolk from sticking to the side.
TODAY IN HISTORY: 19/10/1870: 1st African-Americans elected to United State House of Representatives

DON’T FORGET TO ATTEND: The Home Church meeting tomorrow by 6:00pm at a Dunamis Home Church near you. Invite your neighbours and family. God bless you.

Seeds of Destiny 18 October 2018 Daily Devotional – Understanding What It Means to Give One’s Life to Christ

Published

Seeds of Destiny 19 October 2018

Seeds of Destiny 18 October 2018 Daily Devotional by Pastor Paul Enenche

TOPIC: Understanding What It Means to Give One’s Life to Christ

SCRIPTURE: And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. Luke 9:23-24

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: A life outside Christ is a life full of crises; a Christ-less life is a crisis-full life.

SEEDS OF DESTINY 18 OCTOBER 2018 MESSAGE: In our churches today, many people give their lives to Jesus when a call is made to do so but take their lives back from God by the way they live. This is because they do not understand what it really means to give one’s life to Christ. The way they live outside the church contradicts their profession of Christianity. Hence, it is very important to know what it really means to give one’s life to Christ.

Now, what then does it mean to give your life to Christ?
1. Saying NO to Sin and All forms of Unrighteousness
To give your life to Christ is to say NO to sin and all forms of unrighteousness. It is to embrace the Godly life of holiness, righteousness and uprightness in conformity to the life of Jesus Christ.

2. Relinquishing the Control of your Life to God
This is coming to a point where you completely hand over the control of your life to God and you cannot claim to own yourself any longer.

3. Allowing God to have the Final Say
To give your life to Christ is to allow God to have the final say over your life; it is coming to a point where you can take no decision in life without God.

4. Ceasing to Live for Yourself but for God Alone
To give your life to God is to cease to live for yourself; you start living for God. It is coming to a point like Paul the Apostle who said, ‘For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.’ (Philippians 1:21).

Beloved, a life outside Christ is a life full of crises; a Christ-less life is a crisis-full life. But that shall not be your portion in Jesus’ Name.

REMEMBER THIS: A life outside of Christ is a life full of crises; a Christ-less life is a crisis-full life.

SEEDS OF DESTINY 18 OCTOBER 2018 ASSIGNMENTS:
1. Handover the totality of your life to God by making up your mind to give your life to Christ today (if you have not done that).
2. Decide to develop a quality spiritual life of prayer and study of the Word of God.

PRAYER: Lord, I surrender the totality of my life to You. Give me the grace to be a Christian not by confession but by character, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: GIVE YOUR LIFE CHRIST
QUOTE: Disconnection from God is disconnection from good. Culled from 365 WISDOM CAPSULES by Dr Paul Enenche

SEEDS OF DESTINY 18 OCTOBER 2018 DAILY READING: Jeremiah 31:27 to 32:44, 1 Timothy 3:1 to 16, Psalm 88:1 to 18, Proverbs 25:20 to 22

AMAZING FACT: Chameleons change colour not to camouflage; they change colour according to their mood or health

Seeds of Destiny Daily Devotional 17 October 2018 – Separation From the Crowd by Pastor Paul Enenche

Seeds of Destiny Daily Devotional 17 October 2018 – Separation From the Crowd by Pastor Paul Enenche

TOPIC: Separation From the Crowd

SCRIPTURE: Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 2 Corinthians 6:17.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Conformity is the foundation for uniformity of calamity; to flow with the crowd is to be lost in the crowd.

Seeds of Destiny Daily Devotional 17 October 2018 Message: Sometime ago, I heard the story of a high ranking Christian officer in the Nigerian army. One day, other officers were organizing a party and this high-ranking Christian Officer was invited to be part of it. In the course of the preparation, this Christian officer asked his fellow officers if alcohol would be served in the party and the other officers answered in the affirmative. Then he said, “If alcohol would be served, then I won’t be involved and my money would not be part of it.” Then after some deliberations, they said, “What is the use of even serving alcohol in the first place? We will not serve alcohol in the party. There is no need.’ They told the Christian officer. So, the Christian officer responded, ‘In that case, I will attend the party.’

The lesson from this story is: only one man changed the order of a major event because of solidity of Godly character. You too can change the sinful opinion or attitude of an overwhelming majority with your Godly character if you refuse to join them or compromise.

Beloved, your separation from the crowd guarantees your safety in life. Conformity is the foundation for uniformity of calamity; if you conform to the world, the same calamity that confronts the world will befall you. To flow with the crowd is to be lost in the crowd. That shall not be your portion in Jesus’ Name.

To be the best, you must be yourself. The desire to be like somebody is the reason for so many nobodies. You cannot make a difference in your generation until you are clearly different.

My counsel is, make up your mind to be different from other people.

REMEMBER THIS: Conformity is the foundation for uniformity of calamity; to flow with the crowd is to be lost in the crowd.

Seeds of Destiny Daily Devotional 17 October 2018 ASSIGNMENTS:
1. Avoid the wrong company.
2. Determine to be clearly different for God wherever you find yourself.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask for mercy in any area I might have conformed to the world. I receive the grace to standout for Christ even in the midst of confrontations and contradictions Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: The voice of the person you listen to determines how you will end. To camp with the rest, is to end like the rest. Culled from 10 PRINCIPAL SECRETS OF PRINCIPAL PEOPLE by Dr Paul Enenche

AMAZING FACT: Lizards are born dumb and remain like that till they die.
