SPIRITUALITY IS KEY
By DIGC10 February 2021
The place you give to God in your life determines the place God gives to you.
SCRIPTURE: Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. James 4:8.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The place you give to God in your life determines the place God gives to you.
In our earlier study, we saw that spirituality is the bedrock of destiny. We noted that you cannot have a great destiny with a shallow spiritual life.
Today, I will like you to take note of the following key thoughts on spirituality, especially as it applies to life and destiny fulfilment:
i. Spirituality gives bearing to life and destiny (Luke 15:11-19)
Bearing can be likened to the control tower of an aircraft. Just as an aircraft crashes when it is out of touch with the control tower, destiny crashes when spirituality is out of place.
- The quality of your devotion to God determines the quality of your destiny on earth (Genesis 32:24-28).
To succeed with God is to succeed in life. To fail with God is to fail in life. Spirituality is a major course that determines our success in other courses of life. The quality of your devotion to God determines the quality of your destiny.
- The place you give to God determines the place you find in life (James 4:8).
The place you give to God in your life determines the place God gives to you. When you draw near to God, He will draw near to you (James 4:8).
- You cannot follow the Way and miss the road in life (John 14:6).
You cannot follow the Way (Jesus) and miss it in life. To get it right with God is to get it right in life. So, instead of saying, “Lord, why are things not working in my life?” It is better to say, “Lord, is my relationship with You working?” Everything in your life will work when your relationship with God begins to work.
My counsel is, give priority attention to your relationship with God above all things.
Remember this: The place you give to God in your life determines the place God gives to you.
- Make up your mind to give God quality time in personal devotion.
- Do not neglect your personal prayer altar.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for the privilege of relationship with You. I ask that You give me the grace to maintain persistent prayer life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
