Topic- RELINQUISHING THE OWNERSHIP OF YOUR LIFE TO GOD Saturday 20th October 2018
(FROM THE OCTOBER 2018 EDITION OF THE SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR. PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE)
SATURDAY 20TH OCTOBER, 2018
SCRIPTURE: This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise. Isaiah 43:21
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Claiming to give your life to God while your resources are not owned by Him is deception.
The place of understanding in the life of a person is very critical in fulfilling destiny; where understanding is lacking, abuse is inevitable.
Previously, we saw that the bankruptcy of the understanding of what it means to give one’s life to Christ is a reason for people remaining unchanged even after answering the altar call to give their lives to Christ. Hence, a correct understanding of what it means to give or surrender one’s life to Christ is very important.
Another reason why this understanding is important is because many people who claim to have given their lives to Christ place priority on vanity instead of spirituality; and on carnality above purity. People are more concerned about what to drive or wear to the detriment of maintaining quality Christian life. In the midst of obvious materialism, they still claim to have given their lives to Christ. Is this what it means to give one’s life to Christ? Not at all!
Now, I give you one implication of giving one’s life to Christ:
Allowing God to have the title deed of your life
This is where God has the full ownership of your life; what you do with your time, how you appear, your resources, your energy or the relationships of your life, etc. are all for the glory of God.
When God has the ownership of your life, He also owns your resources. Claiming to give your life to God while your resources are not owned by Him is deception. The truth is, it is not a matter of how much you can give to God but how much of God’s money are you keeping for yourself.
Beloved, make up your mind to come to a point where God can boldly say that He owns you.
REMEMBER THIS: Claiming to give your life to God while your resources are not owned by Him is deception.
1. Determine to make God the Centre of your life.
2. Have the God-first mentality in everything you do.
PRAYER: Lord, I surrender all I am and have to You. Kill every desire to gratify the flesh in me Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
