Dunamis Seeds Of Destiny 8 July 2024 Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche: The Spell Of Ingratitude

TOPIC: The Spell Of Ingratitude (Seeds Of Destiny 8 July 2024)

SCRIPTURE: 1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy. 2 Timothy 3:1-2

MESSAGE:

THOUGHT: We live in a world that is overrun with the plague of ingratitude.

The Scripture reveals that our God is love, and whoever does not love does not know God.

1 John 4:8-9 says,
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

This implies that the love nature is the God Nature. You become like God when you love others; you release the potential of God or the God-life in you when you love the people around you.

However, even though the love life is highly rewarding, there are hindrances to walking in love.

The major challenges or hindrances to walking in love are contrary or negative human actions or reactions.

One terrible example of negative human actions and reactions is ingratitude.
The way people behave can hinder your walk of love. We live in a world that is overrun with the plague of ingratitude.

2 Timothy 3:1-2 says,
1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy.

In our world today, people that you did good things for will behave as though you did nothing for them.

You will love them genuinely, but they will pay you hatred for your love. The world is filled with people who reward good with evil.

We see an example of such in Scripture in the person of Lot. Lot was nothing before Abraham raised him. When God multiplied Abraham in Genesis 13:2, God also multiplied Lot (Genesis 13:5).

But not too long after that, the servants of Abraham and those of Lot began to strive.
We live in a world where those you lifted would suddenly begin to compete with you. You might have picked someone who was nothing, and lifted them from grass to grace, but suddenly, they began to engage in competition with you.

They were nothing before you met them. You took them and lifted them, but now, they are competing with you. That is the kind of world we live in.

My counsel is, refuse to be ungrateful both to God and man. Never forget your root. Do not rebel against the hand raised you.

Remember this: We live in a world that is overrun with the plague of ingratitude.

ASSIGNMENT:

  1. By all means, avoid the spell of ingratitude.
  2. Never forget your root. Do not rebel against the person who raised you or bite the finger that fed you.

PRAYER: O LORD, I receive the grace to overcome the temptation of ingratitude. Help me to be grateful both to You and man, O LORD, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: It is a foolish thing to forget your root. When you forget your root, you forfeit your future. When you forget your origin, you forfeit your destiny. When you lose sight of where you came from, you lose sight of where you are going. If you cannot remember your history, you may not be able to recover your destiny. Culled from the book, “21 Foolish Things People Do” by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY READING: Proverb 31-Ecclesiastes 2.

AMAZING FACT: Your mouth produces about one litre of saliva each day!
