(FROM THE JANUARY 2019 EDITION OF THE SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR. PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE)
SCRIPTURE: Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee….. So Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken unto him; Genesis 12:1, 4.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When your commitment (or dedication) to God is confirmed, His advertisement of your life is automatic.
Dedication to God is a major secret of seeing Divine proofs in life; people who are dedicated to God do not beg Him to prove Himself and His Power in their lives. When your commitment (or dedication) to God is confirmed, His advertisement of your life is automatic.
Now, one definition of dedication is being sold out to God. Like we saw earlier, Abraham was an example of a person who was sold out to God (Genesis 12:1-5).
The question is, what does it mean to be sold out to God?
i. Allowing God to assume the ownership of your life (Genesis 12:1-5)
One who is dedicated to God does not own his life, time or resources. Dedication to God is allowing God to own you and all that you have.
ii. Allowing God to dictate the direction of your life (Genesis 12:1-5)
Being sold out to God is allowing God to dictate the direction of your life (Genesis 12:1-5). When God dictates the direction of your life, you would not move as you choose or do things as you please. To be sold out to God is allowing God to have the final say over the issues of your life – your work, marriage, ministry, career, academics, etc. It is sacrificing your personal agenda and ambition on the altar of consecration and relationship with God.
Beloved, my counsel is, come to a point of being sold out to God like Abraham and Paul (Genesis 12:1-5, Acts 20:22-24). Allow God to assume the ownership and direction of your life.
Remember this: When your commitment (or dedication) to God is confirmed, His advertisement of your life is automatic.
1. Surrender your life and resources completely to God.
2. Make up your mind to discover God’s pathway for your life and follow it always.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask for the grace to hold nothing back from You. Show me Your pathway for my life; I receive Your mercy to follow it, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
