Seeds of Destiny Daily Devotional April 18 2018 – The Danger of Depression by Dr Paul Enenche

SCRIPTURE: It is enough; now, O LORD, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers. 1 Kings 19:4.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY SEEDS OF DESTINY: Depression is the doorway to the destruction of destiny.

Depression is a state of mind producing long-term unhappiness or inability to visualize a happy future. It is a state of unhappiness or low morale.

(Seeds of Destiny Daily Devotional April 18 2018) The Scriptures make it clear that one of the things that hinder destiny fulfilment is depression. It was the spirit of depression that almost aborted the destiny of Elijah. After doing a great exploit of calling down fire from heaven to prove the reality of God on Mount Carmel and killing the false prophets of baal, he became depressed and discouraged in God because Jezebel threatened to kill him. According to our anchor Scripture, he told God that he wanted to die.

It is important to know that Elijah anointed Elisha; Elisha anointed Jehu, and Jehu killed Jezebel. (Seeds of Destiny Daily Devotional April 18 2018) This means, the anointing that killed Jezebel originated from Elijah, but he was running away from what he was anointed to slay. This is what depression does; it makes you run away from the problem you are wired to solve.

Now, what are the dangers of depression?
i) Depression is a major destroyer of destiny
A depressed man is on the pathway of destruction.

ii) Depression is a major sponsor of oppression
Depression opens the door for oppression. satan is at work where depression is.

iii) Depression is the doorway to destruction of destiny
People commit suicide because they are depressed. Depression is a major cause of many medical illnesses.

iv) Depression frustrates discretion
Depression affects reasoning. Whenever a man is depressed, his reasoning pathways are blocked; he lacks the capacity to find solution.

v) Depression decreases momentum
A depressed person is always tired; he sleeps tied, wakes up tired and too weak to work. A depressed person lacks momentum.

Billy Graham Daily Devotion 10 December 2018 – Steadfast Love

Memorize: Your steadfast love, O Lord, is as great as all the heavens . . .  —Psalm 36:5 (TLB)

Young people talk a lot about love. Most of their songs are about love. . . . “The supreme happiness of life,” Victor Hugo said long ago, “is the conviction that we are loved.” “Love is the first requirement for mental health,” declared Sigmund Freud. The Bible teaches that “God is love” and that God loves you. Billy Graham Daily Devotion 10 December 2018

To realize that is of paramount importance. Nothing else matters so much. And loving you, God has a wonderful plan for your life. Who else could plan and guide your life so well?

What is real love? Read Billy Graham’s answer.

Prayer for the day Billy Graham Daily Devotion 10 December 2018

In knowing I am loved by You, almighty God, my heart trusts You to guide me.

DCLM Daily Manna 10 December 2018 Devotional – The Kingdom In Focus

TOPIC: The Kingdom In Focus

TEXT: Romans 14:10-22

KEY VERSE: “For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost” – (Romans 14:17).

MESSAGEDCLM Daily Manna 10 December 2018 Devotional:

Have you got faith? “…Have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth” (Romans 14:22).

Martin Luther King Jr. once said ‘Never, never be afraid to do what is right, especially if the wellbeing of a person or animal is at stake; society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our souls when we look the other way’. The Christian church is uncompromising in its stand against all kinds of conduct opposed to scriptural standards.

Our text deals with issues that bother on the believer’s understanding of true Christlikeness, holiness, fruitfulness, doctrine and morals. This involves a sincere rebuking, correcting and evaluation of one another where necessary in love and humility and the exercise of church discipline on erring members and leaders.

DCLM Daily Manna 10 December 2018 Devotional – The Kingdom In Focus by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

Believers should refrain from judging one another. Christ our Lord is the One who has the right to judge. We must avoid anything that constitutes a stumbling block to fellow believers especially the weak ones. As believers, whether we are strong or weak, we must realise that true liberty does not lie in the exercise of that liberty if it will disrupt the peace of the body of Christ, knowing that the highest good is only attained in its use to edify the church.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Use not your liberty as a cloak of maliciousness.

DAILY BIBLE READING: Romans 11-13
