Topic: Living Beyond Your Limit Through Character
Seeds of Destiny 22 April 2019 Devotional
When you live beyond yourself, you live beyond your limits.
SCRIPTURE: For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield. Psalms 5:12
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When you live beyond yourself, you live beyond your limits.
Throughout Scriptures, we see how good or Godly character opened doors for people, and how bad character closed the door for others.
Moses is a scriptural example of a man whose good character opened the door for his destiny. Moses was literally a vagabond and a fugitive after his escape from Egypt. He had no home, no wife and no possessions. But the good character of selflessness he portrayed delivered him from the life of empty-handedness. He married Jethro’s daughter and became the manager of Jethro’s flock (Exodus 2:16-22).
Beloved, your character of compassion connects you to your portion and possession. When you live beyond yourself, you live beyond your limits. On the other hand, the lack of character equals the loss of destiny. The worth of your life is determined by the weight of your character.
Now, what does Godly character do for you?
- Godly character of integrity or uprightness guides life and destiny. It assists you to know the best way to go in life (Proverbs 11:3). A righteous man cannot be directionless.
- Godly character speaks (Genesis 30:30). Character has a voice, righteousness has a sound. Your character speaks on your behalf when a decision concerning your destiny is about to be made. Seeds of Destiny 22 April 2019 Devotional
Beloved, when you love God passionately and you love your neighbour as you love yourself, then, you are on the path of Godly character.
REMEMBER THIS: When you live beyond yourself, you live beyond your limits.
- Ask God to transform your character for good at the place of prayer.
- Desist from acts of wickedness and lovelessness
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask for the grace to live uprightly. Remove every trace of sinfulness or wickedness from my life Lord in Jesus’ name.
