Seeds of Destiny 16th August 2023 SOD Devotional MESSAGE:
The Scriptures make it clear that a life of decency and order is a quality worth emulating (1 Corinthians 14:40).
One thing that brings disorder to the life of a Christian is borrowing.
More than Twenty-Five years ago, when we were growing up in Ministry, we were wondering why some pastors at that time were driving flashy cars but we could not afford such cars. What we had at that time was an old, retired Peugeot 504 car. They were driving flashy cars but little did we know that they either borrowed money to buy them or bought them on hire purchase agreement.
On Sunday morning, the person who gave them the cars would come to church and ask: where is the balance of my money?
Most of those pastors have faded away. Many of them are still alive today but their voices have been drowned. I know one of them who after 27 years of being in Ministry, was looking for money to pay house rent. This is not how to live life.
Papa Bishop Oyedepo said that life is in phases and men are in sizes. You should learn to accept your status per time. Whatever you cannot afford now is not good enough for you. There is a shirt you wear now that can wear out your destiny because you cannot afford it. There is a car you are driving that is actually driving you out of your favour.
So, order your life. For example, it is not every time you see food that you must eat, order your life.
REMEMBER THIS: One thing that brings disorder to the life of a Christian is borrowing.
- Avoid the lifestyle of begging and borrowing.
- Be contented with what you have per time.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You deliver me from the lifestyle of begging and borrowing. Help me to properly order my life and live within my means per time, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: Avoid the lifestyle of indebtedness and borrowing. Culled from the book, “21 UNCOMMON KEYS TO FINANCIAL OVERFLOW” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY READING: Jeremiah 31-33.
AMAZING FACT: Your tongue is made up of eight interwoven muscles, similar in structure to an elephant’s trunk or an octopus’s tentacle.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Receive the grace and discipline to live life a day at a time in Jesus Name.
