You are reading Today’s Seeds of Destiny Daily Devotion written by Pastor Paul Enenche

Topic: The Changeless God

Today Friday July 12, 2017

SCRIPTURE: For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. Malachi 3:6

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: We serve a God who cannot be changed by times and seasons.

From our anchor scripture, we see that God is not subject to times, seasons, situations or circumstances. It is obvious that times and seasons change things but not God.
Sometime ago, I heard a funny story of a boy who was staying with his grandfather. One day, the boy looked at his hands and saw that it was very smooth and then looked at his grandfather’s hand and saw that it was wrinkled. So, he asked the grandfather, ‘Who made you?’ and the grandfather said, ‘God’. The boy asked again, ‘The same God made me too?’ The grandfather said, ‘Yes’. Then the boy compared his hands with that of his grandfather and said, ‘It means God is doing a better work these days.’

According to the little boy, his hands were smooth and his grandfather’s hands were wrinkled because he represented a superior version of God’s craftsmanship compared to his grandfather. The boy missed the truth; that is not the truth. What made the grandfather’s hand wrinkled was time. Time brought with it change, aging and degeneration to the human body.

But we serve a God who cannot be changed by times and seasons; He is Ancient but not aged. He is not more powerful yesterday than He is today. That is why you are not permitted to be consumed (Malachi 3:6); you are not permitted to be a victim of casualties. The witches and wizards cannot feed on your blood or destiny. You are preserved by the God who is ever powerful and faithful.

Remember this: We serve a God who cannot be changed by time and seasons.

ASSIGNMENT(S):
1. Determine not to have any alternative to God no matter what.
2. Trust God to bring you into fulfilment in life and destiny.
3. Allow God to lead you in everything.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: I AM THE LORD, I CHANGE NOT.

PRAYER: O LORD, thank You for the privilege of knowing You. I believe that the safety of my life and destiny is guaranteed in You, O changeless God, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: Nobody who believes in God ever ends in shame. Shame is never the portion of men and women who pursue God. Culled from REASON FOR LIVING by Paul Enenche.

DAILY READING: 1 Chronicles 4:5 to 5:17, Acts 25:1 to 27, Psalm 5:1 to 12, Proverbs 18:19

AMAZING FACT: If you put a drop of liquor on a scorpion, it will instantly go mad and sting itself to death. (That is what people put into their system)

Open Heaven 12 December 2018 – Qualified For Divine Commendation?

Open Heaven 12 December 2018 – Qualified For Divine Commendation? written by Pastor E. A. Adeboye

OPEN HEAVEN 12 DECEMBER 2018 MEMORISE: Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Revelation 3:11

Open Heaven 12 December 2018 Read: 1 Corinthians 9:24-27

24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.

25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:

27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

Open Heaven 12 December 2018 Message With Hymn And Prayer Points

Imagine that a family goes on vacation for a couple of month, locking up their entire house.

They eventually return home, only to meet workers and artisans going in and out of their house- some cleaning windows, some fixing electrical appliances and others painting the walls.

The family will be shocked because they did not instruct anyone to work in their house. What would you do if this happens to you? I assume you would immediately call the police to assist in getting these intruders out of your house.

Open Heaven 12 December 2018
The same thing needs to happen in the Church of God, as many workers there are intruders. This is the reason why the Lord said in Matthew 7:22-23:

“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

In today’s Bible reading, the Holy Spirit reveals to us the character of those who will receive divine commendation, saying:

“And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:”

To receive heaven’s commendation on the day of reckoning, you must be temperate in all things and run your course with certainty of purpose

Being temperate means being moderate and self-controlled, while to be certain is to be sure-minded and serious. In contrast to this, the attitude of “beating the air” is common place in our churches today.

We have people who teach on missions but who don’t go on missions. Some teach on evangelism but do not go out to evangelize. Others are orators who can get money from the stingiest of persons, but they themselves are not givers.

We need to be mindful of our ways so that we don’t end up being disappointed on theday of reckoning. Learn from Apostle Paul and apply the secret he reveals in 1 Corinthians 9:27 to your life:

“But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.”

May you not miss your divine commendation at the end of your life in Jesus’ Name.

Open Heaven 12 December 2018 Prayer Point: Father, please open my eyes to areas of my life where I am not temperate or sure-minded in Jesus’ Name.

Open Heaven 12 December 2018 Hymn 5

I HAVE DECIDED TO FOLLOW JESUS
1. I have decided to follow Jesus;
I have decided to follow Jesus;
I have decided to follow Jesus;
No turning back, no turning back.

2. The world behind me, the cross before me;
The world behind me, the cross before me;
The world behind me, the cross before me;
No turning back, no turning back.

3. Though none go with me, still I will follow;
Though- none go with me, still I will follow;
Though none go with me, still I will follow;
No turning back, no turning back.

4. My cross I’ll carry, till I see Jesus;
My cross I’ll carry, till I see Jesus;
My cross I’ll carry, till I see Jesus;
No turning back, no turning back.

5. Will you decide now to follow Jesus?
Will you decide now to follow Jesus?
Will you decide now to follow Jesus?
No turning back, no turning back.

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 13 December 2018 - Shun Inordinate Ambition

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 13 December 2018 – Shun Inordinate Ambition written by Pastor Kumuyi

TOPIC: Shun Inordinate Ambition

TEXT: MARK 9:30-37

KEY VERSE: “And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all”  – (Mark 9:35).

MESSAGE: It is truism that “pride goes before a fall”. The Christian life is filled with various paradoxes such as ‘the way up is down’, ‘the way to live is to die’, and ‘the way to receive is to give’. The uniform teaching of the word of God is against self-seeking, self-projection, self-exaltation, inordinate ambition and pride of life.

The projection of self in every endeavour describes what sin itself is: Selfishness In Nature. No doubt, God is interested in our progress, success, breakthrough and advancement. He says, “we shall be the head and not the tail, above only and not beneath”, that “whatsoever we do shall prosper”, and many more! However, our motives, modes and methods of actualising this are of great concern to God.

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 13 December 2018 – Shun Inordinate Ambition

In the world today, people seek a place of prominence in the workplace and the neighbourhood. In several instances, they take steps that are ungodly to attain the desired position, thereby losing the presence and favour of God. This reminds us of a certain young man who coveted the position of his boss and felt that the boss had stayed too long there and must give way to him. He travelled to the village and mentioned it before his fetish father. His father promised to look into the case. Back in the place of work the following week, his boss just got to his office in the morning, slumped and died. His father called him and told him he had “finished” the work. What a world!

Bribing our way to success, cutting corners to reach the top and defying all Christian ethics including using undue influence popularly called “long leg”, run contrary to God’s word. His word, way and time are the best in achieving the desired best for our lives. DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 13 December 2018

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Making haste outside God’s plan attracts His displeasure.

DAILY BIBLE READING: Acts 24-26
