Dunamis Seeds Of Destiny 2 January 2024 Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche — Your Character And The New Year
TOPIC: Your Character And The New Year (Seeds Of Destiny 2 January 2024)
SCRIPTURE: There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil. Job 1:1.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: One of the forces that takes people through a new phase, a new season, and through life in general, is the force of character.
It has been confirmed that one of the forces that takes people through a new phase, a new season and through life in general, is the force of character.
Many people are cut short before their time because of the bankruptcy of godly character. And if you must enjoy all that God has for you in this New Year, 2024, you must uphold godly character.
Character is not just powerful, character is power. The real power of a person is the power of character; not financial, muscular, or occult power; it is character power.
The silence of character is louder than the utterance of compromise. When character is silent, it still has a voice. The silence of people of character weighs heavier than the utterances of characterless people.
Job was a man of character. Job 1:1 says,
There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.
Job was undoubtedly a man of massive character. In his generation, he commanded both the audience and attention of people on the ground of character.
In Job 29:21-23, Job said,
Everyone listened to me and valued my advice, and were silent until I spoke.
And after I spoke, they spoke no more, for my counsel satisfied them.
They longed for me to speak as those in drought-time long for rain. They waited eagerly with open mouths.
(The Living Bible)
You see, that was a man of character commanding the audience and attention of his generation.
In life, there are people whose voice others long to hear, and there are those whose voice people don’t have the patience to listen to.
For example, no one wants to hear the counsel of an armed robber, a harlot, a drunkard, or a liar.
In this New Year, 2024, make up your mind to work on your character so you can command the attention of your generation.
REMEMBER THIS: One of the forces that take people through a new phase, a new season, and through life in general, is the force of character.
- Refuse to go through the year with character deficiency.
- Ask God for the grace to live right always.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You work on my character in this New Year. I receive the grace to live up to Your expectations for my life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

AMAZING FACT: When a bee finds a good source of nectar it flies back to the hive and shows its friends where the nectar source is by doing a dance which positions the flower in relation to the sun and hive. This is known as the ‘waggle dance.’
