Topic: Integrity And Vision – Keys To Destiny Fulfilment
SCRIPTURE: Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. John 8:34 (NIV)
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Nothing punctures destiny like iniquity.
MESSAGE: Yesterday, it was established that a person cannot fulfil destiny without being intimate with God and we saw that iniquity is the enemy of one’s intimacy with God. So, nothing punctures destiny like iniquity.
Today, on the journey of understanding the factors that assist destiny fulfilment, we shall be looking at vision and integrity. We shall also see the negative impact of sin on one’s vision and integrity especially as it relates to the fulfilment of one’s destiny.
Your vision determines your future. What you see determines what you seize.
That is why when the devil wants to frustrate a man’s destiny; he organizes iniquity to attack his vision. Many people’s visions change immediately they welcome an immoral friend into their lives.
King Solomon had seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines; he kept on marrying until his vision for life got corrupted and he was totally derailed by diverse negative influences.
When there is vision, there is focus; and focus guarantees the fulfilment of destiny (Matthew 6:22).
This is the possession of high moral principles. It is the neatness of soul and spirit. Integrity is a factor that assists the fulfilment of destiny. The purer gold is, the more valuable its value. That is why gold undergoes the process of purification so it can fulfil its destiny. Purity of character enhances the powerfulness of destiny.
Immorality on the other hand defiles the conscience, weakens character and ruins destiny. So, every time a person has an immoral affair, watches a corrupt movie or does anything that defiles his conscience, he is corrupting the value of his destiny. Samson was destroyed because he allowed dirt into his life.
So the dirtier a person’s life, the more destroyable his destiny
Remember this: Nothing punctures destiny like iniquity.
1. Write out your vision and pursue it until it becomes reality
2. Delete whatever you do not want to see from your mind.
3. Avoid the company of sinners.
