Seeds of Destiny 11 August 2018 – The Dangers of Strife and Bitterness by Dr. Paul Enenche



Seeds of Destiny 11 August 2018 Daily Devotional by Dr. Paul Enenche

Topic: The Dangers of Strife and Bitterness

SCRIPTURE: Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you. Ephesians 4:31-32

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Progress is arrested when strife is in place

MESSAGE: One of the deadly enemies of destiny is the lifestyle of strife and bitterness. This also refers to competitive jealousy and comparison. Lot entered into strife with his uncle, Abraham who brought him out of obscurity. Absalom also strove with his father, David. Both Lot and Absalom ended in disaster.

Now, I will like you to take note of the following:
i) Progress is arrested when strife is in place
You stop moving forward in life when you agree to strive with your neighbour.

ii) Focus is distracted where strife is established
Whenever you agree to strive with someone, your focus is distracted; another person’s success becomes your focus when strife is in place and where there is no focus, disaster is inevitable.

iii) Competition equals limitation
You cannot become who you are meant to be if your focus is to undo, overdo or outdo someone else.

iv) The Presence of strife is the absence of God
The presence of strife equals the presence of hate because you do not strive with someone you love; and the presence of hate is the absence of God. So, anyone that strives with his neighbour and hates him has eliminated God from his life because God is love (1 John 4:8).

Beloved, my counsel is: deliver yourself from the lifestyle of strife because strife is a killer of joy, and your joy is necessary for your destiny fulfilment.
You cannot be joyful when you are in bitterness and jealousy.

Remember this: Progress is arrested when strife is in place.

1. Avoid the lifestyle of strife, envy, competition and hatred.
2. Be contented with what you have while working and trusting God for more, and live in love with everyone.

PRAYER: O LORD, deliver me from the lifestyle of competition, comparison, strife and hatred. Help me to live in contentment and love, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
