Topic: The Enemies Of Purpose – from Seed of Destiny Devotional by Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche | Date: Tuesday, 27 March 2018.
SCRIPTURE: See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:15-16.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Laziness is a destroyer of destiny.
The Scriptures make it clear that God is God of plan and purpose. He created you for a purpose; His desire is that you should live your life to the fullness of purpose.
However, there are enemies of purpose and destiny that try to prevent someone from fulfilling destiny; these enemies have crippled the destinies of many people. It is very important to look at them in order to deal with them and fulfill destiny. These enemies are:
i) The lifestyle of disobedience or rebellion to God.
ii) The spirit of fear; the fear of the future or the unknown.
iii) The lifestyle of greed; the love of money is a crippler of destiny.
iv) The lack of self-control or the lack of discipline.
v) The spirit of depression and discouragement.
vi) The lifestyle of strife, bitterness and unforgiveness.
vii) Disregard for authority; refusal to stay under an authority is disastrous.
viii) The spirit of inferiority/low self-esteem.
ix) The lifestyle of immorality.
x) Wrong company or association.
xi) The spell of idleness or indolence; laziness is a destroyer of destiny.
xii) The lifestyle of falsehood; Insincerity is a crippler of destiny.
xiii) Disregard for Divine direction.
xiv) The spell of visionlessness or aimlessness.
xv) The lifestyle of pride or arrogance.
Beloved, make up your mind not to be a victim of the enemies of destiny listed above.
