TOPIC: THE IMPACT OF ACTIONS
(SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR. PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE)
SCRIPTURE: And Joshua said, Why hast thou troubled us? the LORD shall trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones. Joshua 7:25
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It is the actions of today that deliver the impacts of tomorrow.
Sometime ago, an eighteen-year-old young lady who was in the Senior Secondary School (SS2) sent a message to our church line. She wrote, ‘Pastor, I feel so dirty and defiled, I want to kill myself’. My wife and I put a call through to her to know what happened. She said that when she was four years old, a mature person in her neighbourhood raped her. After that demonic action, she would come under an uncontrollable urge to commit immorality with whosoever and whatsoever she saw. As a result of that, she had slept with numerous men that she had lost count of. She had become a shadow of herself, there was nothing like education nor a definite future in her mind or focus, all because of a wicked, self-centered, satan-sponsored, destiny-destroying man who decided to pick up a four-year old baby and initiate her into an immoral covenant that has ruined her life and destroyed her destiny. It was such a pathetic case. What a level of wickedness!
Beloved, whatever you sow, you will reap (Galatians 6:7); living is seeding; life has consequences. It is the actions of today that deliver the impacts of tomorrow. Refuse to be allowed to be used by the devil.
On the other hand, if you have been a victim of the negative actions of others, God can restore and repair your life. My counsel is, draw closer to God and allow Him to mend your life for His Purpose.
REMEMBER THIS: It is the actions of today that deliver the impacts of tomorrow.
1. Be conscious of the decisions you make and the actions you take per time; read the account of Achan in Joshua 7:1-25 for a broader understanding of our anchor Scripture.
2. Make up your mind not to sow a negative seed in the life of anyone.
PRAYER: Lord, I refuse to be a victim of the activity of any agent of wickedness. Grant me the grace to always act correctly and make positive impact in the life of everyone that comes my way Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
