Seeds of Destiny Daily Devotional August 21, 2017
Topic: The Presence of God And The Success of Man
SCRIPTURE: Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. Psalm 16:11
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The best of man comes in the Presence of God.
Success is not a destination; it is a journey. This implies that you can never arrive at success. Every step of success positions you for the next step.
MESSAGE: On the journey of knowing what it takes to live at our best from the life of Daniel, we are looking at the fact that:
1. You are your best when you live in God’s Presence. When you make God’s Presence your house you will live at your best. Daniel could never be kept out of prayer (the Presence of God); impossible! (Daniel 6:10). The best of man comes in the Presence of God. You live in His presence by living in the Word, worship, and in God’s Presence is fullness of Joy at His right hand are pleasures forevermore. (Psalm 16:11).
You cannot remain in God’s presence and end in mediocrity.

2. You are at you best when you live to learn.
You are at your best when you make the universe your university. You are at your best when you keep on striving to become a better Christian, husband, wife, leader, pastor, employee, employer, etc., both through practice and through receiving instructions.
Daniel said, I understood by books (Daniel 9:2); he was given to learning and he had no alternative to living at his best. You live at your best when you refuse to arrive, take every opportunity to learn seriously and you will never end in mediocrity.
Remember this: The best of man comes in the Presence of God.
1. Always create an atmosphere of God’s Presence around you.
2. Learn something new today that will benefit you tomorrow.
3. Refuse to arrive at success; continue to move ahead in all you do.
