Seeds Of Destiny 16 May 2018 By Pastor Paul Enenche: The Impact Of Character On Destiny
Topic: The Impact Of Character On Destiny [Wednesday May 16, 2018]
Scripture: A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.Proverbs 22:1
Thought For The Day: Your character either facilitates or frustrates your destiny.
Character is a crucial factor for destiny fulfilment. A person’s character affects his or her destiny. Perception determines reception. How you are perceived determines how you would be received. What comes to people’s mind when your name is mentioned affects how you fare in life.
Beloved, the question is, when you pass, what do people think? A good name will do for you what money cannot do. When your name is mentioned in a place, is it dishonesty, arrogance, pride, lies, seduction, unfaithfulness or deceit that crosses people’s mind? If so, then that is not a good reputation!
But on the other hand, when your name is mentioned and people perceive faithfulness, dependability, reliability, humility, sincerity, honesty, commitment, etc., then your future is guaranteed.
Some people are yet to be married but when they pass, pride and arrogance are what people perceive. Many young men are unable to reach their destiny because anywhere they go, what people perceive is a disrespectful, rebellious, unfaithful, and an uncommitted attitude. Your name goes where you have not gone; your reputation travels ahead of you. When you arrive there, people have already heard about you, they already know you.
My counsel is, work on your character if you are interested in your destiny; work on what people think or know about you. Your character either facilitates or frustrates your destiny. Your character is either giving you acceleration or holding you in stagnation.
Receive the grace to possess positive character in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: Your character either facilitates or frustrates your destiny.
1. Ask God to deal with every negative lifestyle in you.
2. Decide to change every wrong lifestyle.
3. Deliberately live out the fruit of the spirit listed in Galatians 5:22-23.
Prayer: O Lord, deal with every wrong lifestyle in me and erase every negative perception of people about me. Give me the grace to put on the garment of positive character, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
