Topic: The Curse on the Lifestyle of Ease [Seeds of Destiny 31 March 2019 Devotional]
Spiritual casualness equals uselessness in the hands of God.
SCRIPTURE: Woe unto them that are at ease in Zion. Amos 6:1.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Spiritual casualness equals uselessness in the hands of God.
Previously, we saw that dedication to God means seriousness with God; God can never do serious things with unserious people. An unserious Christian cannot amount to anything in life. Spiritual casualness equals uselessness in the Hands of God.
From our anchor Scripture, we understand that the lifestyle of ease attracts a curse; to be at ease is to exist under the climate of the curse. The life of ease is a cursed life (Amos 6:1). Many people blame their challenges and predicaments in life on attacks from witches and wizards but they never consider the fact that being at ease spiritually can attract calamities in life. The reason why the devil is trying to overrun our country is that a great number of Christians are nominal Christians. The church is filled with people but the number of those who carry fire is very few; people who really mean business with God are few. So, the devil and his agents are on rampage wasting the lives of innocent people. It is very disheartening to find out that unbelievers are at the helm of affairs in various institutions and arms of Government; in the various spheres of life like the business, manufacturing, educational, etc., it is unbelievers you see in charge of affairs. Sinners are placed ahead of the believers who are in the same field. Beloved, it is not supposed to be so.
Today, I encourage you to make the decision to go far with God; refuse to be a casual, nominal and average Christian.
Remember this: Spiritual casualness equals uselessness in the hands of God.
- Refuse to exist under the curse that ease and complacency bring.
- Be productive and active always. Shun the lifestyle of idleness.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask that You enlarge my spiritual stamina as I feed on Your Word until every yoke in my life breaks, in Jesus’ Name.
