Disregard For Spiritual Authority: The Bane Of Destiny ~ Pastor Paul Enenche

Topic — Disregard For Spiritual Authority: The Bane Of Destiny [Wednesday June 14, 2017]

Scripture: And Samuel said, How can I go? If Saul hear it, he will kill me…” 1 Samuel 16:2.

Thought For The Day: Lack of regard for spiritual authority is a killer of destiny.

Our God is a God of authority and hierarchy. One key or ladder to greatness in life is having regard for higher authority. However, many people struggle in life because of their disregard for higher unction or authority.

King Saul was a man who had no regard for higher mantles OR authorities. From our anchor scripture, Prophet Samuel expressed the fact that King Saul would kill him if he heard that he anointed another king. This was because King Saul lacked the value for spiritual authority; and this lack of value for spiritual authority was responsible for his ruin.

It is important to note that nobody can last in authority who does not respect authority. Lack of regard for spiritual authority is a killer of destiny.

Also, Absalom’s ruin came on the frequency disregard for parental authority (2 Samuel 18:9-15).

My counsel is, if you do not want to end like Saul, then, do not confront the oil that blesses you. Never bite the finger that fed you or dare a man who carries oil on his head. Never plan or speak evil against an anointed vessel at his back so you can succeed and reach your future.

Remember this: Lack of regard for spiritual authority is a killer of destiny.


  1. Determine not to resist or speak against higher authorities.

  2. Submit to God-ordained higher authorities.

Prayer: O LORD, I ask for the grace to be submissive to the higher spiritual authorities placed above my life. Help me not to resist the Unction you have placed over my life, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
