Topic: Intimacy With God – A Factor For Destiny Fulfilment [Seeds of Destiny Monday February 12, 2018]
Scripture: Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. James 4:8
Thought For The Day: The greatest attack on anyone’s destiny is iniquity.
We live in a generation where there are many resistances and confrontations against the fulfilment of human destinies. The greatest attack on anyone’s destiny is iniquity.
But God is interested in the fulfilment of our destinies; and He has given us what it takes to fulfil destiny. All you need to do is to follow His precepts and you will fulfil your destiny.
There are factors that assist a person to fulfil destiny. In today’s study, we shall look at one of those factors and subsequently we will explore other factors.
Intimacy with God!
Intimacy with God is required for the fulfilment of our destinies on earth. This entails closeness to God, high spirituality, the capacity to feel the Presence of God, the capacity to commune with God and hear him either by His Spirit or through His Word. You cannot be intimate with God and miss it in life and destiny because it is God who has the master plan for your life; He knows everything about you.
It is important to know that nothing attacks intimacy with God like iniquity. How easy would it be for a person to feel God’s Presence after falling into sin? What assurance of answered prayer would such a person have? It is not easy for a person to pray to God when he has fallen into sin. A person who falls into sin would feel defenceless and fearful; he would lose his audacity to command demons. To lose intimacy with God is to end unfulfilled in life and destiny. So, guard your intimacy with God.
Remember this: The greatest attack on anyone’s destiny is iniquity.
1. Avoid every temptation to sin; disassociate from every relationship that is ungodly.
2. Maintain intimacy with God always by living a life of prayer, praise and worship, study of the Word of God.
