Topic: Disregard For Authority
The spirit of rebellion is the doorway to irrelevance in time and in eternity.
SCRIPTURE: God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land. Psalm 68:6.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The spirit of rebellion is the doorway to irrelevance in time and in eternity.
Having disregard for authority is a deadly enemy of destiny. Disregard for authority, especially spiritual authority, destroys lives and destinies. That was what happened to Lot. When Lot came to a point where he had no regard for Abraham who was the spiritual authority over his life, his destiny began to degenerate.
Now, I will like you to take note of the following key thoughts on disregard for authority:
a. Whosoever disregards authority sacrifices destiny (Example, Lot in Gen. 19:29-30)
Whenever people decide that no one can talk to them, they sacrifice their destiny.
b. He who cannot be called to order must end with a destiny of disorder (Example, Lot in Gen. 19:36).
Anyone who cannot be called to order must end their life and destiny in disorder.
c. The spirit of rebellion is the doorway to irrelevance on earth and in eternity (Psalm 68:6).
The rebellious would always dwell in a dry land. (Psalm 68:6).
d. The crave for independence is the grave of destiny (Example, Lot in Gen. 19:26).
The crave for independence, the crave to be on your own and do it your own way is the grave of destiny. When a person feels he cannot be instructed because he can read and understand the Bible, he is digging the grave of his destiny.
Beloved, determine never to rebel against God and constituted authority.
Remember this: The spirit of rebellion is the doorway to irrelevance on earth and in eternity.
- Reject every manifestation of the spirit of rebellion.
- Respect and regard the authority over your life.
- Come under spiritual authority and be obedient to spiritual authority.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for showing me the dangers of rebellion. I reject and curse the spirit of rebellion out of my life. I receive Your grace to come under You, and be obedient to spiritual authority, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
