Topic: The Tragedy of the Lifestyle of Iniquity [Seeds of Destiny 7 August 2018 Daily Devotional]
Scripture: But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul. A wound and dishonour shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away. Proverbs 6:32-33.
Thought For The Day: Iniquity reduces spiritual quality and your spirituality determines your destiny.
Our anchor scripture above confirms that iniquity is the ruin of great destinies. Adultery or fornication, for instance, has the capacity to abort a person’s greatness. Iniquity ruins the lives and destinies of those who indulge in it. Samson was a practical example of those whose destinies were ruined by the lifestyle of iniquity.
Now, I would like to give you few tragedies that trail the lifestyle of iniquity:
i) Iniquity reduces the quality of a person’s life and destiny
Just like impurity reduces the quality of gold, iniquity reduces the quality of life and destiny (Proverbs 6:26). A young lady may be beautiful today but iniquitous lifestyle would make her to look dilapidated, frustrated, battered, shattered and scattered.
ii) Iniquity attacks spirituality
The guilt of immorality reduces your spiritual life and makes the Presence of God difficult to access. Iniquity reduces spiritual quality and your spirituality determines your destiny.
iii) Iniquity attacks mentality
The mind that you need to strategize your destiny is now diverted into wasteful and unproductive thoughts by iniquity. Students who engage in immorality for instance usually fail their examinations in school.
iv) Iniquity diverts energy
Every time a man is given to iniquity, he relinquish his strength, energy, potential and destiny (Proverbs 31:3).
It was T.L Osborn who said, ‘When you sin, something dies.’
v) Iniquity increases vulnerability
Iniquity makes one vulnerable to sickness, satanic attacks and curses (1 Corinthians 6:16). For instance, curses, evil covenants, spells and sickness are transferred from one person to another in the course of immorality. Some businesses have died because of iniquitous conducts.
Beloved, having seen the tragedy of iniquity, my counsel is, flee from every form of iniquitous lifestyle.
Remember this: Iniquity reduces spiritual quality and your spirituality determines your destiny.
1. Ask God to forgive and help you if you are struggling with the lifestyle of immorality.
2. Flee from the lifestyle of immorality.
3. Avoid any act or association that could lead into the trap of immorality.
Prayer: O Lord, I ask that You deliver me from every trap of immorality set for me by the devil. Help me not to become a victim of immorality, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
