TOPIC: REVERENCE FOR GOD
(SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR. PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE)
SCRIPTURE: Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: Hebrews 12:28
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your reverence for God makes you a reference in life. Your respect for God deletes your reproach in life.
We live in a generation where people have no reverence for God. We are in a generation where people idolize the material and mundane things of life ahead of their worship and devotion to God. We live in a generation where people have little or no value for spirituality or the things of God.
Let me give you an illustration: during my university days, there was a brother in the fellowship who usually went with other brethren to a mountain to pray. But while others were praying, he would be sleeping. Whenever they woke him up to pray, he would say something like: ‘Leave me alone; I’m in the Spirit.’ But the truth was that he was sleeping. So, one day, he fell asleep as usual while others were praying. When they were through with the prayer, they left him on the mountain in order for him to remain in the ‘Spirit’ as he always claimed, and he slept until he was tired. Eventually, when he woke up, he realized that the brethren had left him on the mountain and gone back to the hostel. So, he became very angry and asked them, ‘Why did you people leave me on the mountain? Then they answered, ‘You were in the ‘spirit’, so, we decided to leave you to be in the ‘spirit’, we did not want to pull you out of the ‘spirit.’’ That was serious!
The question is, is it possible to be talking to the President of a country and be sleeping at the same time? Sleeping while praying or while a preaching is going on is a confirmation of lack of reverence for God. Our reverence for God is measured by how we conduct ourselves in His Presence in service, at the place of prayer and in our day-to-day activities wherever we are. It is also reflected in our priorities, choices and decisions in life.
Beloved, your reverence for God makes you a reference in life. Your respect of God delete your reproach in life. To the extent you value God, to that extent you will be valued in life and destiny.
REMEMBER THIS: Your reverence for God makes you a reference in life. Your respect for God deletes your reproach in life
1. Never take God for granted so that you won’t end up grounded in life.
2. Refuse, resist and flee any temptation to disrespect God
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for mercy in any area I have not reverenced and respected You. Baptize me with Your Fear, O Lord, In Jesus’ Name.
