Topic: Anointed By Commitment
[Seeds of Destiny 16 April 2019 Devotional]
If God is not first in your life, your life is not in safety.
SCRIPTURE: I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him: Psalms 89:20
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: If God is not first in your life, your life is not in safety.
The word ‘commitment’ refers to devotion or dedication to a cause, person or relationship. A committed Christian is one who is donated for dedicated service to God, whether in ministry, industry, business or politics, and therefore, has become a natural candidate for the anointing of God.
Your personal devotional commitment to God determines God’s commitment to you. It will determine your fulfilment in this life and in the life to come. Your commitment to God also involves your personal prayer life, personal study of the Word and the knowledge of God.
When you are committed to God, you decide and pray to know God like Apostle Paul (Philippians 3:10). The Bible says that the people who do know their God, shall be strong and do exploits (Daniel 11:32). When God sees you wake up in the morning like Abraham in Genesis 19:27 and before you do anything, you talk to Him first; He sees you searching concordances and Bible references and different translations, all in a bid to know Him more; then the devil that can forbid your fulfilment in life and frustrate God’s commitment to you has not been born.
Beloved, please note that if your priorities are not in order with God, your possibilities in God are not in view, and if God is not first in your life, your life is not in safety.
REMEMBER THIS: If God is not first in your life, your life is not in safety.
1.Make a conscious effort to be committed to God in all areas of your life.
2.Ask God for the grace to live for Him.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the grace to be totally committed to You in prayer, worship and study of the Word. Help me Lord, in Jesus’ Name
