Topic: Dealing With the Lifestyle of Iniquity [Seeds of Destiny 14 August 2018 Daily Devotional]
Scripture: Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. 1 Corinthians 6:18
Thought For The Day: Secrecy is the strength of iniquity.
It has been established that iniquity destroys destiny. We have seen the dangers of iniquity previously; we saw that iniquity reduces the quality of a person’s life and destiny; iniquity attacks spirituality; iniquity attacks mentality; iniquity diverts energy and iniquity increases vulnerability in life.
Knowing the dangers of immorality alone is not enough; it is very important to know how to deal with it.
Now, how do you deal with immorality?
1. Flee Iniquity
Flee adultery and fornication. To flee is to run without looking back; flee like Joseph did. You can even leave your shirt or shoes behind; it is better to move about shoeless than to come out graceless.
2. Destroy every undefinable closeness or association that leaves you vulnerable to iniquity
If you are in courtship, for instance, do it well by involving the church. Even if you are in a courtship, minimize undue closeness because it breeds both the tendency and temptation for immorality which is a setup for immediate and future disaster. Do not be inside a room alone with the opposite sex when the door is closed. Secrecy is the strength of iniquity. If secrecy can be destroyed, its strength can be ruined.
3. Receive the help and grace of the Holy Spirit
God’s grace makes us to say No to sin (Titus 2:11). We need grace because there is an escalation of the spirit of lust and seduction in our generation.
Beloved, avoid the lifestyle of iniquity; flee iniquity and receive the grace of God to stay pure.
Remember this: Secrecy is the strength of iniquity.
1. Decide to avoid the lifestyle of iniquity.
2. Cut off every association that invites the temptation of iniquity.
3. Ask for the Help of the Holy Ghost to stay pure.
Prayer: O Lord, I receive Your grace to live in righteousness and not to fall into temptation. I ask for Your help to say ‘no’ to sin or every appearance of iniquity, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
