Seeds of Destiny Daily Devotional August 15, 2017
Topic: The Last 24 Hours
SCRIPTURE: Watch out! Don’t let your hearts be dulled by carousing and drunkenness, and by the worries of this life. Don’t let that day catch you unaware, like a trap. For that day will come upon everyone living on the earth. Keep alert at all times. And pray that you might be strong enough to escape these coming horrors and stand before the Son of Man. Luke 21:34-36 (NLT)
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Do it now!
MESSAGE: One major peculiarity of this generation is the plague of carelessness, especially with regard to spiritual matters. We live in a careless generation. People prepare for wedding and spend a lot of money on it but they never prepare for marriage. That is why many weddings succeed but the marriages fail. Imagine a very successful wedding ceremony that ended in a marriage that is a total mess. People prepare for classroom examinations but they never prepare for eternity or life after death. Very pathetic!
One of the vital questions we need to answer in life if we must examine how we live daily is, what would you do if you have only twenty four (24) hours to live?
This is crucial because one day, everyone will have only 24 hours to live.
Now, imagine having only 24 hours left; are you going to ensure that you catch that girl you have been pursuing for immorality? Are you going to ensure that you make all the money you have been trying to make in a hurry?
I believe that if you are left with just 24hours, you would try and make sure that your relationship with God is in order. You would make sure that there is no unconfessed sin in your heart. You would forgive everyone who hurt you. I believe you would make sure you do everything possible not to arrive in God’s Presence and He says, ‘Depart from me you worker of iniquity.’ I believe you are going to be determined to impact one more person positively for God.
Beloved, what would you do if you have only twenty four (24) hours to live? My counsel to you is, do it now! Do not wait for tomorrow because there were many people who planned to serve God tomorrow but tomorrow never came for them.
Remember this: do it now!
1. Determine to live with the consciousness of eternity.
2. Sincerely answer this question: Where will you spend your eternity?
3. Think of whatever you are not doing right and start doing it right.
