Seeds of Destiny 21 August 2018 Daily Devotional by Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche

SEEDS OF DESTINY TUESDAY 21ST AUGUST, 2018

TOPIC: The Danger of Laziness

SCRIPTURE: Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger. Proverbs 19:15

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Victory does not belong to the lazy; victory belongs only to the strong and the audacious.

In the previous day we saw what idleness did to David, the King of Israel. He was idle at home when he was supposed to go to battle as other kings, and that led him into committing immorality with Bathsheba, Uriah’s wife. We also saw that idleness is the doorway to unrighteousness.

I would like you to take note of the following about indolence and laziness:
i) Indolence, laziness or idleness is the doorway to bondage
Captivity will never break for the idle man; bondage will never break for the lazy man; oppression will never go away from the indolent. Idleness, laziness, indolence establishes bondage. Victory belongs only to the strong and the audacious, not to the indolent and lazy (Genesis 27:40b).

ii) Idleness equals decadence
An idle person’s life eventually degenerates just as an idle house degenerates (Ecclesiastes 10:18).

iii) Idleness invites the company of the enemy
The devil tempts everybody but an idle man tempts the devil. To sit at home waiting for a job instead of doing what you find to do is a waste of life (2Samuel 15:11).

iv) Idleness paralyzes potential
A man of great potential will become useless in a short time because of the refusal to do anything; his life is not profitable to himself, God or the people around him.

My counsel is, avoid the lifestyle of idleness. Do what is available for you to do instead of waiting for what to do (Eccl. 9:10).

Remember this: Victory belongs only to the strong and the audacious, not the indolent and lazy.

ASSIGNMENTS:
1. Do not just sit and wait for jobs endlessly; do what is available until what is desired arrives.
2. Do not drag your feet through life; be active, smart and diligent.

PRAYER: O Lord, I ask for the grace to do what is available until I get what is required. I refuse to live for nothing, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
