Topic: The Preservative Power of Godly Character [Seeds of Destiny 7 May 2019 Devotional]
Iniquity is the foundation for calamity; corruption facilitates destruction.
SCRIPTURE: He shall deliver the island of the innocent: and it is delivered by the pureness of thine hands. Job 22:30
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Iniquity is the foundation for calamity; corruption facilitates destruction.
Godly character can be defined as the ability to discern God’s right way from the wrong, and to voluntarily surrender one’s own will to do what is right in God’s sight and, with the promised supernatural help, to resist the wrong even under pressure and temptation. Godly character is consistently doing the right thing at the right time in the right way for the right reason. Character is what you do when no one is looking.
A Godly character also implies having and maintaining a buoyant conscience devoid of offence towards God and towards man (Acts 24:16).
Our anchor Scripture reveals that Godly character facilitates the deliverance of people from destruction. Pureness of heart and hands is a remedy for infirmity and calamity.
The fact is, truth fuels liberty, innocence facilitates the preservation of the innocent. You may wonder why snakes come around little babies without hurting them even while the babies play with them; it is possible that snakes know that human babies are innocent and harmless.
You are not in the path of harm if you are not in the path of wrong. That was why for as long as Daniel was innocent, he was not eatable by the lions. (Daniel 6:20-22). Gehazi, Samson and Judas Iscariot on the other hand could not escape generational calamity because of their iniquitous lifestyle (2 Kings 5:25-27, Judges 16;18-30, Acts 1:15-20).
Beloved, iniquity is the foundation for calamity; corruption facilitates destruction. Compromise sponsors vulnerability to danger. An armed robber can be killed anytime, smokers and alcoholics are prone to all kinds of lung and liver diseases. Prostitutes and immoral people have no future – HIV/AIDS, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis, Trichomonas vaginalis, etc. are their inheritances. The husband snatcher, the backbiter, the cheater, etc. are all vulnerable to the attack of the devil.
I prophesy to you: receive the grace to uphold Godly character. I decree your escape from every trap set for you by the enemy in this season, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember This: Iniquity is the foundation for calamity; corruption facilitates destruction.
- Shun the lifestyle of iniquity or corruption
- Always maintain a conscience that is alive; a conscience devoid of offence both towards God and man
Prayer: Lord, uphold me in Godly character and lifestyle, and help me to maintain a conscience that is alive, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
