SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL Wednesday 16 January 2019
(FROM THE JANUARY 2019 EDITION OF THE SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR. PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE)
TOPIC- GOING ALL THE WAY WITH GOD
SCRIPTURE: And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother’s son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came. Genesis 12:5.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To go all the way with God is to refuse to look back from following God.
Dedicated people exist in the realm of enviable authority, dominion and prominence. God differentiates and distinguishes those who are dedicated to Him from the rest. Therefore, it is very important to look at what dedication is all about.
Dedication means going all the way with God. Now, what does it mean to go all the way with God?
i. Going full length with God
To go all the way with God is to go full length with God; it is being committed to God wholeheartedly. Going all the way with God is not half-hearted commitment to God but the total commitment of your heart to God. It is the commitment of no return; that is, you are willing to go with God and you refuse to turn back from following Him. That is to say, there is no possibility of a reconsideration of your decision to serve God.
ii. Refusal to look back
To go all the way with God is to refuse to look back from following God; it is refusing to envy your former friends who are unbelievers (Genesis 12:5). When God called Abraham, Abraham took his wife, Lot, his nephew and all that he had and set out for Canaan; they did not stop on the way until they reached their destination.
Paul the Apostle also made up his mind that nothing would stop him from reaching his God-ordained destination for his life (Philippians 3:13-14). There are people who have stopped following God because of the pressures of life; they stopped their journey with God half-way, it ought not to be so.
Beloved, make up your mind to go full length with God and refuse to look back or go back.
Remember this: To go all the way with God is to refuse to look back from following God.
