Dunamis Seeds Of Destiny 13 February 2024 Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche: Your Desires And Your Destiny
TOPIC: Your Desires And Your Destiny (Seeds Of Destiny 13 February 2024)
SCRIPTURE: Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentils; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright. GENESIS 25:34.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When your desires are out of your control, your destiny is out of control.
It has been established that character is a critical factor to life and destiny fulfilment. Your character is a major determinant of the limit of your destiny. No one can go higher in destiny than the stretch of their character.
In our previous studies, we saw one reason why Esau was “characterless.” He had no value for his birth right or heritage in God.
In our study today, we will look at another reason why Esau was regarded as one who lacked the character to fulfil his destiny.
Esau had no control over his desires.
Esau had no control over his desires. He had uncontrollable appetite. He lacked self-control. No wonder, he could not control his appetite.
You see, people who have no control over their desires cannot fulfil their destiny. People who cannot control their appetite cannot control their destiny. Your destiny is out of control if your desires are out of control.
We understand that people have fasted for forty days and even more. But here was Esau who could not fast for one day because he had no control over his desires.
A person who has no control over his desires has no control over his destiny. When your desires are out of your control, your destiny is out of control.
Beloved, control your appetite; do not let your appetite control you.
REMEMBER THIS: When your desires are out of your control, your destiny is out of control.
- Make up your mind to put your desires and appetite under control.
- Put your flesh under subjection to fulfil destiny.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to put my desires and appetite under control. Help me to live above the dictates of the flesh, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: People who act in the manner of Esau are controlled and dominated by their flesh. They are future-blinded. They only think in terms of today. Such people are self-centred and self-focused. Their flesh is in charge of their life. They live only with today in mind. Culled from the book, “Who Are You?” by Dr Paul Enenche
DAILY READING: Joshua 13-16.
AMAZING FACT: The Geneva Bible is the first Bible to use numbered verses. It is also the Bible Shakespeare used and the one that the Pilgrims brought to America in 1620.
DECLARATION/WORD: Receive the help of the Spirit to keep your desires under control in all circumstances in Jesus’ Name.
