DEADLY ENEMIES OF DESTINY
By DIGC04 October 2020
A life of indiscipline is a destroyer of destiny. A man who cannot control his life cannot control his destiny
SCRIPTURE: Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. 1 Peter 5:8.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: An enemy not defined can never be dealt with; an enemy not identified can never be defeated.
We saw in our studies yesterday that satan fights a God-given purpose through deadly enemies of destiny.
Today, we shall identify some of these enemies of destiny. This is because an enemy not defined can never be dealt with; an enemy not identified can never be defeated.
Now, what are these enemies of destiny? What are the things that fight the purpose of God for your life?
- The lifestyle of disobedience or rebellion to God.
It is not possible to be rebellious and fulfil destiny (Gen. 3:23-24). Remember Adam and Eve.
- The spirit of fear (Job 3:25).
The fear of the unknown, the fear of the future, and the fear of failure make people not to become what they are meant to be in life.
- The lifestyle of greed/the love of money.
The lifestyle of greed and covetousness is a destroyer of life and destiny; it destroyed Judas Iscariot (Acts 1:15-21).
- The lack of self-control or discipline.
A life of indiscipline is a destroyer of destiny. A man who cannot control his life cannot control his destiny (Genesis 25:34). Remember Esau.
- The spirit of depression and discouragement.
The spirit of depression and discouragement makes people not to fulfil the plan of God for their lives (1 Kings 19:4).
Beloved, to be successful on earth, you must be deliberate in dealing with these enemies of destiny.
Remember this: An enemy not defined can never be dealt with. An enemy not identified can never be defeated.
- Carefully assess your life to identify the presence of any of these enemies in your life.
- Surrender yourself to God and ask for the grace to live above every enemy of destiny so you can fulfil your God-given purpose on earth.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for showing me the deadly enemies of destiny. I receive the grace to deal with them, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
