LIVING FOR GOD Dr Paul Enenche SOD Monday 28 January 2019
(FROM THE JANUARY 2019 EDITION OF THE SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR. PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE)
SCRIPTURE: SOD Monday 28 January 2019
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20
THOUGHT FOR GOD: To be dedicated to God is to make God the Centre of your life.
It has been confirmed that dedication is the doorway to stardom. In the Bible days, people who were dedicated to God, like Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Job, etc., were stars and prominent figures in their generation. Therefore, in order to become a star for God, dedication is the pathway. This makes the understanding of dedication very important. Insight determines conduct and conduct determines outcome.
Therefore, what is dedication? Dedication is living for God.
Now, what does it mean to live for God? It means:
i. Making God the reason for your life (Isaiah 43:21)
Dedication to God means making God the reason for your life. When you are dedicated to God, pleasure, money, fame, and popularity are not the reason for your living. God is the reason for your living.
ii. Making God the Centre of your life (Luke 2:49)
God is the Centre and Controller of people who are dedicated to Him. On the other hand, God is not the central focus of people who are not dedicated to Him. They do not consider or consult God in what they do. To be dedicated to God is to make God the Centre of your life.
iii. Making your life revolve around God
Living for God means making your life, relationship, job, career, business, etc., revolve around God. This means, everything you do in life, you consider your relationship with God first. Your life revolves around God (Matthew 6:33).
iv. Allowing your decisions and actions to proceed from God
Living for God is coming to a point where your decisions and actions proceed from your relationship with God. When you live for God, you do not just make decisions or take actions that revolve around God but you make decisions and take actions that are sponsored by God. God is the One who tells you what to do and the steps to take (Acts 9:5).
Beloved, make up your mind to come to the point of dedication where Jehovah will prove Himself that He is God in your life.
Remember this: To be dedicated to God is to make God the centre of your life.
