Topic: Character, The Bedrock Of Destiny [Seeds Of Destiny 25 June 2019 Devotional]
Beloved, if you are to carry out an assignment for the kingdom of God; if you desire to rise from the pit to the top, you need to be solid in character. Character is the bedrock of destiny.
SCRIPTURE: “May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope is in you.” – Psalm 25:21 (NIV)
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Characterlessness is the secret of destiny-less-ness; where your character stops, there your destiny ends.
There is an interesting story about the fox in the Book of Judges Chapter Fifteen. Samson caught three hundred Foxes, tied their tails together two-by-two and put fire on their tails and sent them into the standing corn fields of the Philistines to set them on fire. When I read this story, I became curious and asked, ‘Why the Fox?’ In my research, I realised that the Fox is a member of the dog family. There are other species of the dog family like the domestic dog, the bear, the wolf, the jackal, the dingo, etc. However, of all these species of dogs, it was the fox that was chosen by Samson for the assignment. The fox was chosen probably because apart from the intelligence of the fox, it has integrity; the fox behaves like the eagle.
Beloved, if you are to carry out an assignment for the kingdom of God; if you desire to rise from the pit to the top, you need to be solid in character. Character is the bedrock of destiny. Characterlessness is the reason for destinylessness; where your character stops, there your destiny ends. It does not matter the potential you carry; when you lack character, you lack destiny. This was the challenge of Reuben, Samson and Judas Iscariot.
Beloved, make up your mind to live a life of uprightness in order to fulfil a quality destiny.
Remember this: Characterlessness is the secret of destinylessness; where your character stops, there your destiny ends.
