Seeds of Destiny 6 September 2020 Devotional — Divine Response Provoked By Thought

Topic: Divine Response Provoked By Thought
Please anywhere you want to go in life, let the thought of it fill your mind. Whatever you want God to do for you, let it occupy your mind. See it! Picture it!

SCRIPTURE: And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. Isaiah 65:24.

Dr Paul Enenche Live Sunday Service DUNAMIS ABUJA

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The right thought can weigh as heavy as the right prayers before God.

Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that thought births Divine response. The right thought provokes answers from God.

The Scripture makes it clear that God hears and answers our thought. That is why Isaiah 65:24 rightly says: And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.

Beloved, God is saying to you, “Before you call, even when you haven’t yet opened your mouth, I can perceive what is in your mind, and I will answer it”.

This confirms what Ephesians 3:20 says; Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.

So, God answers our thought. Our thought can activate answers from God!

Now, from the two Scriptures above, (that is, Isaiah 65:24 and Ephesians 3:20), it is important to note that the right thoughts can weigh as heavy as the right prayers before God. Look at Ephesians 3:20 again: Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

Now, “…unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all we ask”, implies prayer. And, “…unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we …think…” implies imagination or thought.

In Isaiah 65:24, God said: “…and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.” This means they have not yet spoken; the matter is in still their thought realm. God said that while they are yet speaking, He will hear them. So, please anywhere you want to go in life, let the thought of it fill your mind. Whatever you want God to do for you, let it occupy your mind. See it! Picture it! If you are yet to be married, see yourself with your husband or wife in your home together with your children. If you are sick, see yourself healed and living in Divine health.

My counsel is, see life beyond your present status. See yourself beyond what is happening around you now. Think positively in line with your expectations because your thought provokes the Divine response you can get.

Remember this: The right thought can weigh as heavy as the right prayers before God.

ASSIGNMENTS:
Fill your heart with what you want God to do for You.
Fill your heart with where you want to be in life.
Do not allow what you don’t want cross your mind.

PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I receive the grace to think the right thoughts always, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

Seeds of Destiny 3 September 2020 Devotional: Thought – A Sponsor Of Change

Topic: Thought – A Sponsor Of Change
When your thinking changes, your living also changes. Your thought is the sponsor of your change and transformation in life. When your thought pattern is renewed, your destiny is revitalized.

SCRIPTURE: And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:2.

Dunamis KPGWC2018 NOVEMBER 2018 ANOINTING SERVICE

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your thought is the sponsor of your change and transformation.

In our previous studies, we explored some powers of thought. We saw that the quality of our thought determines the quality of our results; the quality of our thought affects the quality of our destiny. We also saw that thought fuels action, and action determines manifestation.

Now, another power of thought is that thought sponsors change and transformation.

Romans 12:2 says, And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Please understand this: When the mind is renewed, life is upgraded! When you renew your mind, you upgrade your life. When your thinking changes, your living also changes. Your thought is the sponsor of your change and transformation in life. When your thought pattern is renewed, your destiny is revitalized.

The story of the prodigal son aptly illustrates the topic of our study today. When the mind of the prodigal son changed, his life was upgraded. Luke 15:17-18 says, And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee…

When his thinking changed, his living changed. When his mentality changed, his reality changed. So, every reality around you today is a product of your mentality. You know, thoughts carry presence.

Therefore, know that apart from your thought determining your results, actions and manifestations, your thought also sponsors your change and transformation.

My counsel is, if you don’t like the way your life is, change your thought.

Remember this: Your thought is the sponsor of your change and transformation.

ASSIGNMENTS:
Renew your mind for a positive change and transformation of your life.
Refuse average and low thinking.
Upgrade your mind always with the Word of God.

PRAYER: O Lord, I receive the grace to renew my mind always. I receive Your help to discipline my thought in line with Your Word, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

Seeds of Destiny 1 September 2020 Devotional — The Power Of Thought

Topic: The Power Of Thought
The quality of your thought determines the quality of your results in life; the quality of your thoughts affects the quality of your destiny.

SCRIPTURE: Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. Proverbs 4:23, 25.

Dunamis Church Abuja Live

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The quality of your thought determines the quality of your results in life; the quality of your thoughts affects the quality of your destiny.

You are welcome to the month of September, the ninth month of the year 2020, our year of Supernatural Shift. I decree that you shall take total delivery of all that God has packaged for you in this month, in Jesus’ Name.

We live in a season where the minds of people are overwhelmed with different thoughts. There are diverse thoughts exerting diverse pressures on the minds of people.

Thought is powerful, and in our study today, we shall consider the power of thought.

It is important to know that one of the powerful weapons of life is the weapon of “Thought”. Thought can make a life, and thought can also mar a life. Thought can raise a life, and thought can also ruin a life. Thought can assist someone to end in eternity in Heaven, and thought can also lead another person to end in eternity in Hell. Thought has brought the greatest blessing in the world, and thought has also brought the greatest damnation in the world.

Let me give you one example: There was a man called Adolph Hitler who wanted to conquer and rule the whole world at a time. That ambition brought untold hardship and devastation to the people of the world. His ambition to rule the world only began as a thought.

Now, the question is: how powerful is thought? We shall be seeing one power of thought in our study today, and that is: Thought Determines Results.

The Scriptures make it clear that out of the heart come forth the issues of life (Proverbs 4:23). Thought determines results in life (Proverbs 23:7).

So, the quality of your thought determines the quality of your results in life; the quality of your thought affects the quality of your destiny. No matter how hard you try, your life can never rise above the level of your thought. Where you find yourself in life is where your thought has permitted you to be. For example, if you go to some villages or rural areas and listen to the conversations of most villagers or rural dwellers, you can easily perceive that their thought is very low. Their thought is primarily and majorly centred on survival, and that is why they live only in the survival mode.

When you go to some other places like motor parks, and you listen to some people there talk, you will realise that their thought is so low that they are usually centred on mundane things. Only little things cross their minds. That is why their lives are stagnated at the motor parks.

Your thought indeed determines your results; your thought determines your destiny. When you toy with your thought, you toy with your future; when you toy with your thought, you toy with your destiny.

Beloved, determine to upgrade your thought in order to upgrade your destiny.

Remember this: The quality of your thought determines the quality of your results in life; the quality of your thought affects the quality of your destiny.

ASSIGNMENTS:
Guard your heart with all diligence.
Refuse to focus your thought on low and mundane things.
Upgrade your thought-life consistently by meditating on the Word of God.

PRAYER: O Lord, I surrender my heart to You afresh. Take over my mind, and let my thought be patterned after Yours, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: Never entertain thoughts of fear: “Supposing something negative happens?” Some kind of fear hanging in the air is from the devil. Culled from “15 KINGDOM STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL” by Dr Paul Enenche.

Seeds of Destiny 31 August 2020 Devotional — Looking Forward To His Coming

Topic: Looking Forward To His Coming
Follow peace and love with all men because your relationship with God, as well as your relationship with people, affects your destiny in eternity.

SCRIPTURE: Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Matthew 24:44

Dr Paul Enenche Live Sunday Service DUNAMIS ABUJA

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The best fulfilment that money or anything can give you on earth is shadow compared to the fulfilment that just a second in God’s Presence will give you in eternity.

In our previous studies, we have looked at some of the things that constitute our readiness and preparedness for eternity with God in heaven.

Today, we shall look at four other things that facilitate our spending eternity with God in heaven.

Laying up treasure before God.
Wherever your heart is, that is where your treasure shall be directed to (Matthew 6:21). Let me give you an example: when a man’s heart has been conquered by a lady, his money goes in her direction. He abandons everyone else and spends on the lady who has captured his heart. So, if you show me where you direct your resources, I will show you where your heart is.

With the increasing anti-church sentiments in the world, it is possible to hear the voice of the world that says, “Church is looking for your money”. But the truth is, if your heart is truly with God, there is no voice from hell that can divert your treasures from Him. Lay up treasures before God.

Doing what you can defend before God.
Don’t do things because you see others do them. There are people who dress because they see other people dress like that. The person they are copying may be a pastor’s wife who dresses almost half naked, and so they conclude: “Since she is a spiritual person, the wife of our general overseer, it is okay to dress like her”. Don’t deceive yourself. Do what you can defend before God.

One day, I counselled a man who wanted to divorce his wife. After speaking with him and he still seemed not to understand, I told him that he should go ahead and do what he can defend before God. There is an accountability to give before God (Romans 14:12, Matthew 12:36-37, Ecclesiastes 12:13-14). Do what you can defend before God.

Following peace and love with all men (Romans 14:19, Hebrews 12:14).
Follow peace and love with all men because your relationship with God, as well as your relationship with people, affects your destiny in eternity. Love people, do not hate people (1 John 4:20). And please, stop playing with malice and bitterness. It is disaster when, for instance, husband and wife who sleep in the same house can’t talk to each other; they wake up in the morning and do morning prayer in bitterness. Please don’t waste your life this way.

Looking forward to His coming.
To live with eternity in view, you must look forward to His coming (Philippians 3:20-21). Our citizenship is of heaven, not of the earth. We are looking for His return. But this is not true with many Christians.

In those days, the way of greeting among brethren was Maranatha (1 Corinthians 16:22). Maranatha means: “Come Lord Jesus.” It’s an expression of a longing in the heart. Please know that the best fulfilment that money or anything can give you on earth is shadow compared to the fulfilment that just a second in God’s Presence will give you in eternity.

Beloved, to live ready for eternity, you must lay up treasure before God, do what you can defend before God, follow peace and love with all men and look forward to His coming.

Remember this: The best fulfilment that money or anything can give you on earth is shadow compared to the fulfilment that just a second in God’s Presence will give you in eternity.

ASSIGNMENTS:
Lay up treasure before God.
Do what you can defend before God.
Follow peace and love with all men.
Look forward to the coming of Jesus Christ.

PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I receive the grace to continue to look forward to Your soon return, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: Our Lord Jesus had said that where your treasure is, that is where your heart will be. Where is your treasure? Where is your heart? What do you spend on? Do you bless God with your resources?

Seeds of Destiny 30 August 2020 Devotional — In Preparation For Eternity With God

Topic: In Preparation For Eternity With God
Live as an ambassador of God’s Kingdom in your generation. Live your life to publicly identify with your Creator in your generation

SCRIPTURE: Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Matthew 24:44

Dunamis KPGWC2018 NOVEMBER 2018 ANOINTING SERVICE

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You cannot serve God and other things on earth and guarantee your place in eternity.

In our previous studies, we identified three of the things that constitute readiness and preparedness for eternity.

Today, we shall look at other things that aid our readiness and preparedness for eternity with God in Heaven.

Living in the consciousness and company of His Presence (Psalm 17:15, Psalm 122:1)
If you don’t enjoy God’s presence on earth, how will it be possible for you to access His Presence in eternity? There are people who can’t stay in church for thirty minutes without getting apprehensive or being in a hurry to leave. They see spending thirty minutes in church to be too long meanwhile, they can watch movies for three hours on the same spot. They can do any other thing for lengthy periods of time but they cannot pray for fifteen (15) minutes.

If you don’t enjoy His presence in this life, how will you access His presence after this life? If His Presence does not excite you in time, His Presence will not attract you in eternity.

Living in His worship and service.
If you want a place with God in eternity, don’t serve or worship anything else but God in time (Matthew 4:8).

You cannot serve two masters; it is either you love one and hate the other or hate the other and love one (Matthew 6:24). Our God is a jealous God (Deuteronomy 4:24). You cannot serve Him and other things on earth and guarantee your place in eternity.

Living as God’s representative in your generation.
Live as an ambassador of God’s Kingdom in your generation. Live your life to publicly identify with your Creator in your generation (Galatians 6:17;1Peter 2:9). Live unashamedly for God in your generation. You are the light of the world. Let your light shine before men (Matthew 5:14-16). Let people know that you belong to God.

There are many people who don’t have any problem with being Christians for as long as nobody is aware. They carry the Bible but they hide it or wrap it with a paper for people not to see it. They can’t bear His reproach. And because they are ashamed of identifying with God here on earth, He will be ashamed of them on the last day in eternity (Mark 8:38). Beloved, determine to identify with God publicly.

Remember this: You cannot serve God and other things on earth and guarantee your place in eternity.

ASSIGNMENTS:
Live in His presence always.
Live in the service and worship of God.
Live as a representative of God’s Kingdom here on earth.

PRAYER: O Lord, thank You for Your Word to me today. I receive the grace to live in Your Presence both in this world and in the world to come, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

Seeds of Destiny 29 August 2020 Devotional — The Dead Conscience

Topic: The Dead Conscience
It has been confirmed that when conscience is dead, life is doomed both in this world and in the world to come.

SCRIPTURE: Now the spirit speaketh expressly that in the later times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of the devil, speaking lies in hypocrisy having their conscience seered with a hot iron. 1 Timothy 4:1-2.

Dunamis KPGWC2018 NOVEMBER 2018 ANOINTING SERVICE

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When the conscience is dead, life is doomed both in this world and in the world to come.

Earlier, in our previous study, we saw the necessity of living with a clear conscience. The state of our conscience is very critical to our relationship with God. Our conscience affects our eternal destination.

A living conscience facilitates a healthy spiritual life.

Today, we want to look at what constitutes a dead conscience.

It has been confirmed that when conscience is dead, life is doomed both in this world and in the world to come.

1 Timothy 4:1-2 says, Now the spirit speaketh expressly that in the later times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of the devil, speaking lies in hypocrisy having their conscience seered with a hot iron.

When people tell lies and don’t seem to feel anything; when they steal and don’t feel anything; when they commit immorality and don’t feel anything; when they cheat and don’t feel anything; when they kill and still don’t feel anything; their conscience is already dead. They are not safe.

Now, conscience can die in the following ways:

Repeated acts of rebellion.
When you do the wrong thing repeatedly and your conscience pricks you for a while but you refuse to repent, you will be left alone. A time comes when the sinful action will begin to appear normal. That is the realm where some hardened criminals live their lives.

Un-confessed sins
Conscience can become dead with un-confessed sins. This is a situation where the person is doing the wrong thing but does not see any reason to say “sorry” to God or to man.

Excusing or justifying wrong deeds.
Your conscience can die when you excuse or justify wrong deeds. When a person is busy excusing, explaining or justifying a wrong deed, the conscience can come to a point where it becomes unresponsive and dead.

Beloved, it is very important to take heed to this so you don’t run your race on earth in vain. What shows that you are preparing for eternity is living with a clear conscience that is void of offence.

Remember this: When the conscience is dead, life is doomed both in this world and in the world to come.

ASSIGNMENTS:
Refuse to live in rebellion to God.
Don’t live with un-confessed sins.
Refuse to excuse or justify a wrong deed.
Maintain a broken spirit and a contrite heart.

PRAYER: O Lord, I receive the grace to keep my conscience alive always. Deliver me from the tragedy of dead conscience, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

Seeds of Destiny 28 August 2020 Devotional — Living With A Conscience Void Of Offence

Topic: Living With A Conscience Void Of Offence
As a Christian, it is crucial to live with a conscience that is tender and alive. That is living with a conscience that makes you to know when you have done something wrong.

SCRIPTURE: And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence towards God, and towards men. Acts 24:16

Dunamis Church Abuja Live

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: A living conscience equals a healthy spiritual life.

In our previous studies, we saw two things that constitute readiness and preparedness for eternity with God in heaven. We saw that being born again and living to please God are necessary requirements for eternity with God in heaven.

Today, we shall look at another requirement for guaranteed eternity with God in heaven.

It is living with a clear conscience that is void of offence before God and man.

As a Christian, it is crucial to live with a conscience that is tender and alive. That is living with a conscience that makes you to know when you have done something wrong. It is a conscience that has the ability and maturity to say “sorry” to both God and man when you have done the wrong thing.

Acts 24:16 says, And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence towards God, and towards men.

Do you know that even unbelievers who don’t know God have conscience that can either accuse them or excuse them? Romans 2:14-15 says, For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;).

So, peoples’ conscience either accuses or excuses them, even though they are not born again or go to church.

There is nobody who kills a person and does not know that he has done a wrong thing. Nobody needs to go to church to know that stealing is wrong.

When you conspire against someone, there is a conscience to hold you accountable. This conscience becomes more active and lively when you become a Christian.

1 Timothy 1:19 says, Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:

That is to say, when you throw your faith and conscience away, you make a shipwreck of your destiny. When you walk contrary to your conscience you make a shipwreck of your destiny.

It was Rev. Samuel Wesley who told his son, John Wesley, “The inward witness, the conscience, that is the greatest sign of Christianity”. Let me put it this way: A living conscience equals a healthy spiritual life.

Beloved, ensure that your conscience is alive and tender always.

Remember this: A living conscience equals a healthy spiritual life.

ASSIGNMENTS:
Ensure that your conscience is alive and active always.
Don’t do anything that will kill your conscience.
Repent promptly when your conscience accuses you.

PRAYER: O Lord, I ask that You give me a lively, active and tender conscience. Help me not to engage in anything that will desensitize or kill my conscience, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: Anything that attacks your conscience, attacks your preservation. Anything that reduces your confidence in God (which sin will do), also reduces your security from God. Culled from “15 KINGDOM STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL” by Dr Paul Enenche.

Seeds of Destiny 27 August 2020 Devotional — Living To Please God

Topic: Living To Please God
You were created to give pleasure to God with your life, so you don’t live just to please yourself. You don’t live to please society, and you don’t live to please the devil; you live to please God, your Maker.

SCRIPTURE: Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. Revelation 4:11.

Dr Paul Enenche Live Sunday Service DUNAMIS ABUJA

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You cannot live with God in eternity if you cannot live for Him on earth.

Yesterday, we saw that one of the things that constitute our readiness and preparedness for eternity with God in heaven is being born again.

Today, we shall look at yet another thing that constitutes readiness and preparedness for eternity with God in heaven.

It is living to please God with your life

You were created to give pleasure to God with your life, so you don’t live just to please yourself. You don’t live to please society, and you don’t live to please the devil; you live to please God, your Maker.

In Philippians 1:21, Paul the apostle said, For to me to live is Christ and to die is gain.

Concerning Jesus Christ, God says, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:17

This is also corroborated by Matthew 17:5 which says, While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

Live to please God with your life.

Beloved, endeavour to answer the following questions objectively: Who is your life giving pleasure to, God, yourself or the devil? What you do with money, who is it giving pleasure to? Can God say that He is pleased with your life based on the way you are living? Can God say He is happy with you? Someone is happy with the way you dress or appear, who is that person, God or the devil?

Now, why is it necessary to live to please God? Revelations 4:11 says, Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

You are to exist to please God because you were created for His pleasure. So, you cannot say, “I can dress the way I please. I will live the way I want”. No! You don’t have the license to live the way you want.

If God created you for His pleasure and you don’t live in this world for His pleasure, how will you end in eternity? You cannot live with God in eternity if you don’t live for Him on the earth.

So, live to please God with your life, not the devil, society or yourself.

Remember this: You cannot live with God in eternity if you cannot live for Him on the earth.

ASSIGNMENTS:
Refuse to live for yourself, the devil, or society.
Make up your mind to live only for God.

PRAYER: O Lord, from today, I refuse to live for myself, the devil or society. I receive the grace to live for You only, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: And if there is anyone that is trusting God for success and breakthrough on earth, a major key to that is to be determined to give God pleasure. Culled from “WHO ARE YOU?” by Dr Paul Enenche.

Seeds of Destiny 26 August 2020 Devotional — Being Born Again To Live Again

Topic: Being Born Again To Live Again
To be born again is not just joining a church, growing up in church or being baptized.

SCRIPTURE: Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. John 3:3.

Dunamis Church Abuja Live

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To be born again is not just joining a church, growing up in church or being baptized.

Yesterday, we saw what it means to live with eternity in view. This is very important because the consciousness of eternity on earth is key to living with God in eternity.

Today, we shall look at what constitutes readiness and preparedness for eternity with God in heaven.

It is Being Born Again (John 1:12, 1 Peter 1:23, 2 Corinthians 5:17)

To live again in eternity with God in heaven, you must be born again on earth. Therefore, you must be born again to live again.

Now, what does it mean to be born again? To be born again is not just joining a church, growing up in church or being baptized. Today, we have many people in church who are not genuinely born again Christians.

Sometime ago, I went to preach in a Christian fellowship somewhere and gave an altar call. The amazing thing was that the leadership of that fellowship came out to give their lives to Christ because they literally got to know what genuine salvation entailed for the first time.

I also heard God’s servant, Pastor W. F. Kumuyi sometime ago, how he went to a church in the United Kingdom to preach the gospel, and the pastors and leaders of that church came out to give their lives to Christ. So, it is possible to be in church and not be born again.

Now, to be born again is to recognize that you are a sinner.

It is to come to a point where you know that you need God’s mercy.

Then you repent before God by asking Him for the forgiveness of your sins.

After this, you ask Jesus Christ to save you by His sacrifice on the cross of Calvary.

Then finally, you accept Him into your life as your Lord and saviour, and allow Him to take the centre stage of your life going forward.

When this happens genuinely, there is a witness in your spirit that you are now a child of God (Romans 8:16). There is a peace or an assurance you experience, which is called “The Assurance of Salvation”. And you are overwhelmed with joy.

It is also important to understand that to be born again is to have a definite experience. Let me give you example: I came to know the Lord first of all in the year 1979. I was a young boy of about 11 years old then. I went out for an altar call just as children would do when a call for salvation is made, but I was not grounded in the faith. So, I slid back. I could not trace that experience to a particular date. But in the year of 1986 on the 12th of May, I got a divine encounter that led to my rededication. This time, the experience was definite and clear and that date can’t be forgotten.

Beloved, maybe you find yourself in church but you are not sure if you have given your life to Christ; it is not too late. You can give your life to Jesus today. Don’t assume eternal matters. Assumption brings frustration.

Remember this: To be born again is not just joining a church, growing up in church or being baptized.

ASSIGNMENTS:
Ask yourself objectively: “Am I really born again?”
If you are born again, make up your mind to continue to grow in the Lord.
But if you are not yet born again, you need to give your life to Jesus Christ. In that case, pray the prayer below.

PRAYER OF SURRENDER AND DEDICATION:
Lord Jesus, I come before You today. I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I cannot help myself. I know that You died for me on the Cross to save me from sins. I confess my sins today and I ask that You come into my life. I accept You as my LORD and Saviour. And from today, I will follow You, forward ever and backward never. Thank You for saving me, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

Seeds of Destiny 25 August 2020 Devotional — Living With Eternity In View

Topic: Living With Eternity In View
Living with eternity in view is living prepared. It is not trying to get prepared; you are already prepared!

SCRIPTURE: For this world is not our permanent home; we are looking forward to a home yet to come. Hebrews 13:14 (NLT)

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To live with eternity in view is to know that you have a home beyond the earth.
Recently, I preached two messages on the end time. The titles of these messages are, “Surviving the Last Days” and “Living with Eternity in View”.

Now, when we hear a statement like, “Living with eternity in view”, many times, people don’t understand exactly what it means.

That is why, today, I will like us to see what it means to live with eternity in view.

Living in the present with the end in mind.
Living with eternity in view is living in this present time with the end in mind. It is living in the present with the end in perspective (1 Peter 4:7). That is to say, even though you are alive today, the end is on your mind.

Living and conducting our life’s actions with eternity as major consideration.
Living with eternity in view is asking yourself questions like: “Where will my life end with what I am doing now? Where will this particular action or lifestyle lead me to in the end?” Living with eternity in view is living and conducting our life’s actions with eternity as the major consideration. It is knowing that everything we do on earth has eternal implications (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14); it is knowing that earthly actions have eternal consequences.

Living in the NOW with readiness and preparedness for eternity.
Living with eternity in view is living prepared. It is not trying to get prepared; you are already prepared (Matthew 25:13, Matthew 24:44-45)

Living with eternity in view is living with readiness and preparedness for eternity.

Living as strangers and pilgrims in the earth.
It is living with the full knowledge that this world is not your home (1 Peter 2:11). Living with eternity in view is knowing that you have a home beyond the earth.

Living in the world without forgetting yourself in the world.
Many people forget themselves in this world by the way they do things; they do not look unto Jesus (Philippians 3:20). They have forgotten who they are and where they are going. Living with eternity in view is living as a citizen of heaven while on earth.

Remember this: Living with eternity in view is knowing that you have a home beyond the earth.

ASSIGNMENTS:
Be conscious of eternity in all that you say or do.
Live as a stranger and pilgrim in the earth.
Never forget yourself in the world.

PRAYER: Thank You Lord for the constant revelation of Your Word to me. I receive the grace to live my life with eternity in view Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

If you had died before this time, where do you think you deserved to be, considering your action, lifestyle and life’s priorities?
