Topic: Effect of Awareness On Action – from Seeds of Destiny Devotional by Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche | Date: Wednesday 06 June 2018.
SCRIPTURE: And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. Matthew 14:28-29.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY: Awareness affects your actions and your actions affect your results.
Previously, we saw the impact of awareness on atmosphere; the atmosphere a person attracts around himself is a function of his level of awareness of who he is.
Today, it is important to know that awareness affects behaviour and action. Awareness affects action and action affects results.
Sometime ago, I heard a funny story: a local person was listening to his small radio set in the bush while he was tending his flock. There was a program being aired on the Radio. Suddenly, he heard a cry of a small baby on the Radio, and out of compassion for the baby he could not see, he poured Kunu (a local drink made from cereal) on the speaker of his Radio. When he finished pouring it, the radio stopped working. When the baby stopped crying because the radio had stopped working, he concluded that the baby was satisfied, hence she stopped crying. The man behaved this way because of his mentality or level of awareness.
Awareness affects your actions and your actions affect your results. When the disciples who were in the ship saw Jesus and thought they had seen a ghost, Peter asked Jesus to allow him come to the water if Jesus was truly the one. When Jesus asked Peter to come, Peter began to walk on the water (Matthew 14:28-30). Peter stepped on the water on the basis of awareness and the water solidified under his feet. The awareness he had made him to act and he got a positive result. Anything you do under relevant awareness has unusual results; when you pray, praise, tithe, sow seeds and serve the Lord with awareness, you get tremendous results; but when you do things mindlessly, results are limited. It is the awareness behind your actions that makes your actions produce great results.
My counsel is, be conscious of who you are in God on the basis of the Word of God, practice what you believe and you will become it.
Remember this: Awareness affects your actions and your actions affect your results.
- Renew your mind daily.
- Act based on revelation from the Word of God.
PRAYER: O Lord, I receive the grace to act or behave based on revelation from Your Word. Help me to renew my mind daily, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
