Topic: The Lifestyle Of Disobedience: The Enemy Of Destiny [Saturday April 7, 2018]
Scripture: And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. 2 Corinthians 10:6
Thought For The Day: The agreement to disobey God is the decision to abort destiny.
The Scriptures make it abundantly clear that there are deadly enemies of destiny. These are enemies that cripple one from fulfilling destiny and God’s purpose for one’s life. It is critical to identify these enemies in order to guide against their operations in one’s life.
Now, one of these deadly enemies of destiny is a lifestyle of disobedience.
It is important to know that it was a lifestyle of disobedience that dislocated the destiny of Adam and Eve; they disobeyed God and their destinies were aborted. This means, the agreement to disobey God is the decision to abort destiny.
Now, I would like you to take note of the following:
i) Disobedience to God equals disconnection from destiny
Adam and Eve were sent from the Garden of Eden because of disobedience.
ii) Disobedience to God equals distance from God
Disobedience to God widens a person’s distance from God. And you know that distance from God equals nearness to disaster.
iii) Rebellion to God provokes rebellion from the earth
Everything rebels against the man who rebels against God. Thorns and thistles sprang forth from the earth as a result of the disobedience of Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:18).
Beloved, are there areas in your life where you have disobeyed God? Ask Him to forgive you and make up your mind to obey Him from today.
Remember this: The agreement to disobey God is the decision to abort destiny.
1. Consciously ask God for forgiveness if there is any area of disobedience in your life.
2. Make up your mind to live a lifestyle of obedience henceforth.
Prayer: O LORD, I ask for forgiveness in any area I have disobeyed You. Give me the grace to obey You promptly and totally, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
