Topic: Intimacy With God And The Fulfilment Of Destiny [Thursday August 10, 2017]
Scripture: Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. James 4:8
Thought For The Day: The greatest attack on anyone’s destiny is iniquity.
We live in a generation with diverse forms of resistance and confrontation against the fulfilment of human destinies. One of the greatest attacks on one’s destiny is iniquity.
God is interested in the fulfilment of our destinies, and He has given us what it takes to fulfil destiny. All you need to do is to follow His precepts and you will fulfil your destiny.
We shall be looking at factors that assist the fulfilment of destiny and how those factors can be attacked by iniquity. In today’s study, we will look at one of those factors which is Intimacy with God
Intimacy with God is required for the fulfilment of our destinies on earth. This entails closeness to God, high spirituality, the capacity to feel the Presence of God, the capacity to commune with God. You cannot be intimate with God and miss it in life and in destiny because it is God who has the masterplan of your life; He knows everything about you.
It is important to note that nothing attacks intimacy with God like iniquity. How easy would it be for a person to feel God’s presence after falling into sin? What assurance of answered prayer would such a person have? It is not easy for a person to pray to God when he/she had fallen into sin, let alone having assurance of answers to prayers. A person who falls into sin will feel defenseless and fearful, losing his/her audacity to command demons.
Thus to lose intimacy with God is to end unfulfilled in life and destiny. So, guard your intimacy with God.
Remember this: The greatest attack on one’s destiny is iniquity.
- Avoid the trap of falling into sin and iniquity; dissociate yourself from every ungodly relationship.
Maintain intimacy with God always by living a life of praise and worship, study of the Word of God.
