Topic: The Power Of Instruction – from Seed of Destiny Devotional by Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche | Date: Saturday, 12 May 2018.
SCRIPTURE: Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end. Proverbs 19:20
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Anyone who is too big to be instructed and directed is too small to fulfil destiny.
The relevance of direction to life and destiny fulfilment can never be overemphasized. Direction is key to destiny fulfilment; one thing that direction does is that it shows one the pathway to destiny.
This means, direction determines destiny. To reach where you are going, you must know where you are going and the way that leads there. Get this: to be under clear direction and instruction is to be guaranteed a solid destiny. Anyone who is too big to be instructed and directed is too small to fulfil destiny.
At the mountain of transfiguration, Jesus was instructed in a way by Moses and Elijah, because they came to tell him what was ahead of Him (Luke 9:31). Even though He created them, He humbled Himself enough to receive instructions or information from them.
Someone may be so proud that even though he is missing his way, he struggles to find it all by himself, thereby wasting time and energy, instead of simply asking for direction. If someone else wants to assist him by showing him the right way, he would cockily resist and say, ‘Relax. I know the road,’ only to reach the wrong destination and realize that it is too late.
Beloved, you will not miss road in life.
My counsel is, settle down to be instructed in order to fulfil your destiny.
Remember this: Anyone who is too big to be instructed and directed is too small to fulfil destiny.
- Decide to shun the lifestyle of pride and arrogance.
- Humble yourself to be instructed.
- Decide to hear God’s instruction through your pastor so you can be directed in life.
PRAYER: O Lord, I reject the lifestyle of pride and arrogance that hinders Your instruction. I receive the spirit of meekness in order to be instructed, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
