Topic: The Maintenance Of Quality Spirituality – One Of The Most Important Things In Life – (DIGC) Seeds of Destiny Devotional by Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche “Dunamis International Gospel Centre” Date: Wednesday, 08 August 2018.
SCRIPTURE: But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Until your spiritual life is in order, your natural life is out of order.
Today, we want to look at yet another very important thing in life which is, the maintenance of quality spirituality.
It has been confirmed that the quality of your spirituality determines the quality of your destiny. Until your spiritual life is in order, your natural life is out of order. The real needs of man are spiritual needs, and until spiritual needs are met, physical needs are not met.
Beloved, you have not succeeded in life until you have succeeded with God. For instance, as a medical student, if you have distinction in an elective course like General Studies (GS) but fail your core courses like Human Anatomy and Biochemistry; you have not excelled at all in what will make you a doctor. This is how life is, when your spirituality is neglected, even if you have money, fame, political influence, or have travelled round the world, you have not succeeded; you have only succeeded in putting the first thing last and the last things first. You have not excelled at all if you have not excelled in maintaining quality spirituality. That shall not be your portion in Jesus’ Name.
Majoring in the minor and minoring in the major; that is how most people live their lives. Some people are physically good looking and robust on the outside but ugly and thin in the spirit. This is not correct.
Beloved, my counsel is, develop a quality relationship with God because if your spiritual life is not working, you are in a state of emergency. Life is all about developing quality relationship with your Creator.
Remember this: Until your spiritual life is in order, your natural life is out of order.
1. Decide to give priority attention to your spirituality
2. Endeavour to succeed with God before you succeed with men and in the things of life.
3. Develop the discipline of consistent prayer life and study of the Word.
PRAYER: O Lord, give me the grace to maintain a quality relationship with You. Help me not to succeed in other things in life at the expense of my quality relationship with You, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
