Seeds of Destiny July 3, 2017 Daily Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche
Topic: Power In Righteousness
SCRIPTURE: The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion. Proverbs 28:1
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Whatever weakens your conscience weakens your authority.
MESSAGE: Our anchor scripture clearly shows that the upright are as bold as a lion. This establishes the fact that there is power in purity. That is to say, if you have purity, you will have power; and where there is no purity, there will be no power. This also implies that unrighteousness on the other hand is the doorway to weakness in life.
We are looking at the scriptural example of the connection between power and purity using the life of Prophet Samuel.
In 1 Samuel 12:3-5, Samuel asked the Israelites, “… whose ox have I taken? …whom have I defrauded? Whom have I oppressed? or of whose hand have I received any bribe to blind mine eyes therewith?….” And they replied, Thou hast not defrauded us, nor oppressed us, neither hast thou taken ought of any man’s hand…
Samuel was a man of such unquestionable integrity. No wonder he manifested unusual dimension of supernatural power. In 1 Samuel 12:16-19, Samuel called on the Lord and God sent thunder and rain during dry season.
First of all, Prophet Samuel said, “What is my fault?” (Paraphrased) and they could not find his fault. He was faultless. So, on the foundation of that faultlessness, he manifested powerfulness.
Beloved, whatever weakens your conscience weakens your authority. The strength of the conscience determines the strength of the authority. Whatever makes you feel guilty renders you powerless. So, avoid anything that makes you feel guilty.
Remember this: Whatever weakens your conscience weakens your authority.
1. Guard your heart from anything that defiles; never play around sin.
2. Study the Bible daily and fellowship with God in prayer and worship in order to assimilate His Nature.
