Wednesday SEEDS OF DESTINY 26 December 2018
(FROM THE DECEMBER 2018 EDITION OF THE SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR. PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE)
TOPIC- JOY FOR THE TOP WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 26, 2018
SCRIPTURE: Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. Habakkuk 3:18, 19.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: If the top is your destination, then the excitement is your vehicle.
One of the major features of rising to the top is joy and excitement. Joy and excitement are necessary ingredients in the journey to the top. That is why if the top is your destination, then excitement is your vehicle. The top has no vacancy for depressed people. Sad people have no access to the top. If you must go high, you must feel high. Excitement brings upliftment. You cannot feel low, and fly high.
Now, what does Joy do for you?
1. Joy brings strength (Nehemiah 8:10). Joy brings strength and strength takes you to the top. A depressed person is a lethargic, weak and asthenic person. A depressed person cannot go up because he is bankrupt of strength.
2. Joy brings wisdom. Excitement is a mental ventilator. When a person is excited, his mind is open to fresh ideas. Anywhere there is joy, there is inspiration; anywhere there is excitement, there is enlightenment and wisdom. When a man is wise, he must rise. To be wise is to rise (Proverbs 8:15). So, this is the equation: joy brings wisdom and wisdom takes a man to the throne.
Today, I decree the death of every trace of depression, embarrassment and harassment that has come to steal the joy in your life, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: If the top is your destination, then excitement is your vehicle.
1. Make the choice to live a joyful life
2. Avoid the company of, and separate yourself from sad and depressed people
PRAYER: O Lord, I thank You for the release of Your joy on my life. Help me to live a joyful life always, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
