TOPIC: YOUR AFFECTION – A PATHWAY TO YOUR DESTINY
SCRIPTURE: Also he built towers in the desert, and digged many wells: for he had much cattle, both in the low country, and in the plains: husbandmen also, and vine dressers in the mountains, and in Carmel: for he loved husbandry. – 2 Chronicles 26:10
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: What you love doing is your link to what you would live doing.
It is very important to know that our God is a God of plan and purpose. He does not act randomly; He acts deliberately and objectively. God is not confused about man’s purpose and journey on the earth. God did not create anyone for experimental purposes. He created you not for experiment but for accomplishment. You have a destiny in God, a purpose for your existence.
Now, one of the pointers to knowing that destiny is AFFECTION.
There is a connection between your affection and your destination. There is a connection between what you love and how you live.
In 2 Chronicles 26:10, we understand that because King Uzziah loved husbandry, his cattle multiplied. It is what you love that attacks your lack. Inside what you love can be your favour. Uzziah did not waste his energy on what he did not love. He spent his energy in the direction of what he loved; and as he did that, what he had multiplied.
Today, we have many people struggling on earth and spending their lifetime and energy on what they have no affection for. Frustration is the outcome when you do what you do not have passion for.
Joseph was another person who did what he had affection for. Joseph loved to put smiles on the faces of people. He loved to interpret dreams and that was his link to his purpose.
Genesis 40:1-8 gave us a vivid account of when Joseph, in the prison, interpreted the dreams of the butler and the baker. He helped them out of their frustrations and that was his link to his own destiny. Indeed what you love doing is your link to what you would live doing.
Beloved, do not do what you don’t have affection for, and do not ignore your passion; pay attention to them.
REMEMBER THIS: What you love doing is your link to what you would live doing.
- Refuse to do anything in life without passion or affection.
- Identify your affection and follow it.
PRAYER: Lord, I thank You for Your Word to me today. I receive the grace to identify and follow my affection, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: The man who needs fire and passion for whatsoever he has found himself doing needs focus, brutal focus. Culled from “21 FOOLISH THINGS PEOPLE DO” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Genesis 31-35.
REFLECTION: There is a connection between your passion and your portion. If you follow your passion, you end in your portion. But the most important passion to possess is passion for God.
PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION: You shall not miss out on your portion in the land of the living in Jesus’ Name.
