Topic: Living A Lie – A Highway To Destruction [Seeds of Destiny 20 August 2019 Devotional]

Click HERE for Previous MESSAGES by Pastor Paul Enenche

Until you open your life to God, God does not open your destiny to you.

SCRIPTURE: And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob. And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed. Genesis 32:27-28

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Until you open your life to God, God does not open your destiny to you.

Our anchor Scripture confirms that the admission of truth is one of the factors that determine the fulfilment of destiny. When Jacob’s father asked Jacob who he was at the time he wanted to get the blessing, he said that he was Esau (Genesis 27:32). That was a lie. But when the angel asked him who he was, he had to open up to the angel by saying that he was Jacob. That truth led him into destiny fulfilment.

Today, we live in a generation where many people live a lie in everything. Some people get involved in an arranged marriage in order to travel abroad, some people forge documents in order to get a job. For some people, the different parts of their body are mobile lies. Sometime ago, I heard that a woman did an artificial silicone implant of the breast and while she was in an aircraft travelling, one of the breasts exploded in the aircraft. What vanity!

Beloved, take note of the following:

a. Until you open your life to God, God does not open your destiny to you.

b. Cover-up is the way to a closed life. Truth is key to triumph. Until people are set for the truth, they are not set for their future.

Beloved, you should be able to open up to God and say, ‘Lord, I lie, I cheat, I deceive, I masturbate, I am a lesbian, a homosexual, a smoker, or a drunkard,’ if that is what you find yourself in. Tell God, ‘Lord, I know this can destroy my life and take me to hell. Lord, please help me destroy this wrong desire.’ Ask God for mercy and He will intervene, change you and open up your destiny.

Remember this: Until you open your life to God, God does not open your destiny to you.


  1. If you have committed a sin, confess it and ask God for mercy.
  2. Live a life free of sin; live with the consciousness of eternity.
  3. Make demands on God for the grace to walk in righteousness.


PRAYER: Lord, have mercy on me. Lead me away from things that keep me from You, and separate me from those things that hinder me from accessing Your glory, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
