SEED OF DESTINY DEVOTIONALWednesday, 5 October 2016
TOPIC: THE SECRET OF DISTINCTIONSCRIPTURE: And the angel came in unto her and said, Hail thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee blessed art thou among women. Luke 1:28.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To fear God is to fare well in life.
The Glory of the Lord is a Divine seal of distinction upon the life of a man. It sponsors shining and guarantees an outstanding existence.
God’s seal of distinction is a distinguishing factor. That is why it is possible to be in the same environment but have different attainments in life. Jacob and Esau were products of the same conception and sucked the same breast, yet they ended differently in life. While Esau’s memory is nowhere to be found on earth, Jacob (Israel) is one of the most notable nations on earth today. That difference was a function of Divine seal of distinction.
One of the keys to distinction in life is THE FEAR OF GOD.
Beloved, if you want God to distinguish you in life, the fear of God is a vital key. In Luke 1:50, Mary told us one of the secrets of her distinction in her generation; she said, ‘And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.’
To fear God is to fare well in life. Also, to fear God is to go far in life. You cannot fear God and be stagnated in life.
Remember this: To fear God is to fare well in life.
1. Avoid a life of sin.
2. Determine to stand out in life.
3. Endeavour to please God in all you do.
