Topic: The Grassy Nature Of All Flesh
[Seeds of Destiny 29 October 2019 Devotional]
Your longevity in life is connected to your spirituality. Your depth in God determines your length of life.
SCRIPTURE: For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away. – 1 Peter 1:24
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your longevity in life is connected to your spirituality. Your depth in God determines your length of life.
Our anchor Scripture above reveals that the existence of human being on the earth is transient. No matter how beautiful, handsome, tall or short a person is, his/her flesh is as grass. No matter how powerful, influential or popular a person is, that person’s flesh is also like grass that is liable to perish. There were people who lived as if their lives would never end. They brought pain and sorrow to humanity; they were so powerful that nobody thought they could bow to death, yet the bowed because they were flesh, and as grass they all perished. For example, there was a man called Adolf Hitler of Germany; he was like the god of the whole world at a time, but he too was grass, and he bowed. What of Idi Amin Dada of Uganda? He committed unimaginable atrocities against his people, but he too was grass, and he bowed. There was another dictator called Mobutu Sese Seko of the Democratic Republic of Congo who was very corrupt, yet he too was grass. Sani Abacha of Nigeria was a military dictator. He was very autocratic and brutal, but he was grass too, and he bowed. Michael Jackson ruled and reigned in the pop music world. They called him the king of pop music, but he bowed to the King of kings because he was grass. Their money, fame, name and wisdom could not save them on the day of death.
Beloved, the only way to escape the disaster of the grassy nature of mortal life is to be rooted in God. Your longevity in life is connected to your spiritualty. Your depth in God determines your length of life.
REMEMBER THIS: Your longevity in life is connected to your spiritualty. Your depth in God determines your length of life.
1.In all you do or achieve in life, be conscious of the fact that you are also grass(flesh) because it is the consciousness of consequence that imparts caution to life’s actions.
2.Let investment into the kingdom of God and into the lives of people be a priority instead of investment only on the flesh that would perish.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to be conscious of Your help in my life always. Help me to be deeply rooted in You. And deliver me from the decadence of this generation, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
