Topic: The Life of Sacrifice – A Way of the Covenant [Seeds of Destiny 15 December 2018 Devotional]
Scripture: The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee; Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion; Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah. Psalms 20:1-3
Thought For The Day: Our willingness to sacrifice is an indication of our devotion to God.
A sacrificial life is a life that is committed fully and wholeheartedly to the things of God. A sacrificial person is one that is ready to give his/her life, time, resources and energy for the purpose of the Kingdom of God. Our willingness to sacrifice is an indication of our devotion to God. This means that whatever God demands of us per time is releasable to him.
To be in covenant with God is to live the life of sacrifice.
Now, what does the life of sacrifice do in a life of a person?
- Sacrifice facilitates the reversal of curses
When God saw the sacrifice of Noah, He promised not to curse the ground again for man’s sake (Genesis 8:21). This implies that your sacrifice can neutralise every generational, family or witchcraft curse against your life. A person of sacrifice is not be-witchable, curse-able or charm-able.
- Sacrifice and covenant living activate the intervention of God in times of trouble (Psalm 50:5, 14-15).
God remembers your sacrifice and intervenes in times of trouble.
Beloved, my counsel is, maintain an unwavering commitment to God by living a life of sacrifice. Be so committed until God bears you witness and can even boast about you. Do not move about looking for human approval because most times, human approval does not equal Divine verdict. God can never do serious things with unserious people. Be serious with God in your covenant walk with Him.
Remember This: Our willingness to sacrifice is an indication of our devotion to God.
- Use your gift, talents, time, resources etc. to serve God faithfully.
- Avoid the lifestyle of grumbling and complaining
Prayer: O Lord, I ask that You help me to live a life of sacrifice. I refuse to murmur and complain. I lay my all at Your Feet, Lord in Jesus Name.
