Topic: Consequences Of Lack of Divine Direction [26th August 2018 Daily Devotional]
Scripture: The LORD says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you. Psalm 32:8 (NLT)
Thought For The Day: It is the voice of God that makes a person to be in charge in life.
The Scripture makes it clear that satan, our enemy, moves about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8). His mission is to steal, kill and destroy and make people not to fulfil their destiny. One way to resist the devil is to be conscious of the deadly enemies of destiny which are his ploys to wreck the destinies of God’s children.
Now, one of the deadly enemies of destiny is disregard for Divine direction. It is lack of regard for divine direction.
It is disaster for a person to live a normal life of waking up in the morning, going to work and coming back in the evening without maintaining contact with heaven.
Now, I will like you to take note of the following consequences of a lack of Divine direction:
i) There can be no destiny without direction
You cannot reach where you are meant to reach in life if you do not have a direction.
- ii) Where there is no direction, disaster is inevitable
In aviation accidents happen when the plane loses contact with the control tower. When bearing is lost, a crash is inevitable. If there is no contact between you and heaven, disaster is inevitable.
iii) Where there is no direction there is minimal progress
Where there is no direction, there must be stagnation or minimal progress. People do not leave where they are in life because they do not know what to do.
- iv) Where there is no direction, there can be no dominion
The children of Issachar had understanding of the time to know what Israel ought to do, so, all their brethren were at their command (1 Chronicles 12:32). It is the voice of God that makes a person to be in charge in life.
- v) Where there is no direction, there is absolute frustration
The absence of direction equals the abundance of frustration; when a person does not know what to do, he is full of dissatisfaction and frustration
Beloved, my counsel is, refuse to live a life without direction.
Remember this: It is the voice of God that makes a person to be in charge in life.
1. Refuse to be limited in life for lack of direction.
2. Passionately ask God to direct you in all areas of life.
Prayer: O Lord, I refuse to be limited in life due to lack of direction. I ask that You give me directions in all areas of my life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
