Seeds of Destiny 24 September 2018 Daily Devotional: Dealing With the Reproaches of Life by Pastor Paul Enenche

TOPIC: Dealing with the Reproaches of Life

SEED OF DESTINY MONDAY 24TH SEPTEMBER, 2018

SCRIPTURE: Now Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syria, was a great man with his master, and honourable, because by him the Lord had given deliverance unto Syria: he was also a mighty man in valour, but he was a leper. 2 Kings 5:1

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your impact will handle your insult.

MESSAGE: A reproach is a situation which causes shame, mockery, disfavour, rejection, and sorrow. A reproach is an attack on a person’s identity; its prime objective is to swallow up the name or identity of the affected person.
The case of a certain crippled man who sat at the gate called “Beautiful” (Acts 3:2) was a good example of reproach. The gate had a name, “beautiful” but the man had no name; he was simply referred to as “a certain man.”

Now, let us look at the keys to dealing with the reproaches of life.
1. Maintaining a life of Impact
Naaman, the Syrian was a leper but he was also an expert warrior (2 Kings 5:1). People who had no leprosy were also in the Army of Syria but Naaman, a leper was appointed Chief of Army Staff because he was far better than the normal people without leprosy; he outperformed others by his impact, ability and war strategies. Naaman decided to make impact despite his setback. SEED OF DESTINY MONDAY 24TH SEPTEMBER, 2018

In one of his assignments as an Army General, he led the Syrian Army to raid Israel and they brought a little girl back home as prisoner of war. He impacted and influenced the life of the girl so positively that the girl desired that he, her master, be healed. She then directed him to Prophet Elisha in Israel where he got his healing.

By virtue of impact Naaman could not remain a leper. Your impact will handle your insult.

2. Submit yourself to prophetic instruction.
Naaman was not cleansed of his leprosy until he completely obeyed the instruction of Prophet Elisha (2 kings 5:14).

3. Immerse yourself in the Word.
Naaman dipped himself in the water seven times and he was cleansed. The Word of God is the water that washes away our reproach (Ephesians 5:26).

Beloved, immerse your life in the Word and let it wash off every reproach in your life.

Remember this: Your impact will handle your insult.

ASSIGNMENTS: SEED OF DESTINY MONDAY 24TH SEPTEMBER, 2018
