Seeds of Destiny 23 March 2020 Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche
TOPIC: The Way to the Palace
SCRIPTURE: And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the Lord said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he. 1 Samuel 16:12.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Depression establishes a man in the pit. When you decide to settle for self-pity, you have settled for the pit of life.
MESSAGE: One of the notable kings in Scripture was David. David excelled in many things. Many people excelled majorly in one thing, but David excelled in many things. David excelled as a shepherd, musician, instrumentalist, singer, worshipper, songwriter, inventor of music equipment, hunter, animal killer, military general, war hero, giant killer, leader, people developer and king. Every king in Israel had to refer to him. David excelled to a point where God had to call His Son, His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, the “Son of David, the Root of Jesse.” David excelled as a prophet; he had very unusual prophetic insight. He also excelled as a priest.
David excelled in life despite coming from the background of rejection and hostility. There was nothing about Him that qualified him for anything significant. He was despised by everyone, yet he excelled.
Now, how do you excel from the wilderness of life to the palace like David? How do you move from where you are to the place of authority? I will give you one key:
Refuse to focus on what is against you.
Seeds of Destiny 23 March 2020 – Do not focus on what is against you. What and who is against you cannot stop you if you are not against yourself. Your boss in the office cannot stop you if you are not against yourself, and if God is not against you. If you face your distraction, you miss your distinction. Depression establishes a man in the pit. When you decide to settle for self-pity, you have settled for the pit of life. That will not be your portion in Jesus’ Name.
Beloved, make the choice not to be depressed. Make up your mind to rejoice in the Lord always.
REMEMBER THIS: Depression establishes a man in the pit. When you decide to settle for self-pity, you have settled for the pit of life.
1. Refuse to live in depression; choose to be joyful at all times.
2. Make the decision to be excellent in all your dealings.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the grace and wisdom to be excellent in all I do. Help me Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
