Daily Devotional Guide Written By Dr. Paul Enenche.
TOPIC: REFUSE SOCIETAL INFLUENCES
SCRIPTURE: Do not follow the crowd in doing wrong. Exodus 23:2 (NIV).
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To follow the dictates of society is to be lost with society.
Sometime ago, I heard that in a state in the United States of America, prisoners were not allowed to go into the prison with their belt because they might use it to hang themselves. So, the prison wardens made them remove their belt the moment they got into the prison. As a result of this, whenever they are released from the prison, their trousers would be left sagging as they make their way home.
When other persons, probably young people, saw them on the road in their saggy trousers, they began to emulate them as a dressing style and they called it “sagging”. Thus, these young people are inviting captivity and imprisonment to their lives even though they are neither criminals nor prisoners.
You see, this is the tragedy of our generation. Many people do not have the mind of their own. They always follow the dictates of society. And to follow the dictates of society is to be lost with society.
Beloved, the lady whose dressing you want to emulate may be a mermaid spirit carrier. There are satanic fashion designers who have been given an assignment to destroy the people of the world with indecent dressing and you are dressing like them to fulfil the ministry of the devil. We live in a world where everyone wants to be like everyone.
You know that God created you to be unique, and you must decide to be unique. Let the Word of God become your principal guide in life. Refuse to allow societal influence dictate your lifestyle.
Remember this: To follow the dictates of society is to be lost with society.
- Refuse to follow the crowd to do the wrong thing.
- Let the Word of God be your guide in life.
PRAYER: Lord, I refuse to follow the bandwagon of societal influences. I bring myself under the control of Your Word. I receive the grace to follow Your Word as my principal guide, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
