Seeds of Destiny 18 April 2018 Daily Devotional by Pastor Paul Enenche

TOPIC: The Danger of Depression

( 18 APRIL 2018 SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR. PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE)

SCRIPTURE: It is enough; now, O LORD, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers. 1 Kings 19:4.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Depression is the doorway to the destruction of destiny.

MESSAGE: Depression is a state of mind producing long-term unhappiness or inability to visualize a happy future. It is a state of unhappiness or low morale.

The Scriptures make it clear that one of the things that hinder destiny fulfilment is depression. It was the spirit of depression that almost aborted the destiny of Elijah. After doing a great exploit of calling down fire from heaven to prove the reality of God on Mount Carmel and killing the false prophets of baal, he became depressed and discouraged in God because Jezebel threatened to kill him. According to our anchor Scripture, he told God that he wanted to die.

Seeds of Destiny 18 April 2018 Daily Devotional – The Danger of Depression

It is important to know that Elijah anointed Elisha; Elisha anointed Jehu, and Jehu killed Jezebel. This means, the anointing that killed Jezebel originated from Elijah, but he was running away from what he was anointed to slay. This is what depression does; it makes you run away from the problem you are wired to solve.

Now, what are the dangers of depression?
i) Depression is a major destroyer of destiny
A depressed man is on the pathway of destruction.

ii) Depression is a major sponsor of oppression
Depression opens the door for oppression. satan is at work where depression is.

iii) Depression is the doorway to destruction of destiny
People commit suicide because they are depressed. Depression is a major cause of many medical illnesses.

iv) Depression frustrates discretion
Depression affects reasoning. Whenever a man is depressed, his reasoning pathways are blocked; he lacks the capacity to find solution.

v) Depression decreases momentum
A depressed person is always tired; he sleeps tied, wakes up tired and too weak to work. A depressed person lacks momentum.

Beloved, my counsel is, by all means, avoid the life of depression. Decide to be happy always in the Lord regardless of what God has done or is yet to do. Deal with depression by the weapon of praise.

Remember this: Depression is the doorway to destruction of destiny.

ASSIGNMENTS:
1. Avoid the lifestyle of depression.
2. Decide to be joyful in the Lord always.

PRAYER: O Lord, I reject every spirit of depression in my life. I ask that You decorate my life with the garment of praise, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

Andrew Wommack 21 September 2018 Daily Devotional – Marriage is for this Life

Andrew Wommack 21 September 2018 Daily Devotional 

Topic: Marriage is for this Life

Scripture: Luke 20:33-34 “Therefore in the resurrection whose wife of them is she? for seven had her to wife. And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage:”

Text: Luke 20:27-40

Message: It is very doubtful that the situation that the Sadducees were relating ever took place. It is more probable that they were stating a hypothetical case to complicate the understanding of the resurrection and thereby discredit it.

If you accept their basic supposition (marriage continues in heaven), then their reasoning was correct. It would not be possible to administer marriage in heaven with multiple mates as their story described. Their reasoning wasn’t flawed, but rather the “facts” that their reasoning was based on were not scriptural.

Andrew Wommack 21 September 2018 Daily Devotional – Marriage is for this Life

The scriptures speak of two becoming “one flesh” in marriage, and angels are not flesh. Paul said, “Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Cor. 15:50). Therefore, marriage is an earthly institution limited to flesh and blood mortals and will not exist in heaven. Marriage, as is death, is temporary for mortals while they are on earth. This is why a person whose mate has died, is free to remarry. Marriage pertains only to this life.

That is not to say that a couple who have loved each other deeply here on earth will love each other less in heaven. God forbid. They will love each other infinitely more, but it will be God’s “agape” love (not romantic love) and it will not be limited to just one person. We can be sure that heaven will surpass any expectations that we may have so that no one will be disappointed.

Andrew Wommack 21 September 2018 Daily Devotional – Marriage is for this Life

Today, many people use logical reasoning to try to discredit God’s Word. But Jesus said, “They err because they do not know the scriptures.” Therefore, their arguments have no merit; only reasoning based on scripture has any merit.

Kenneth Copeland 21 September 2018 Daily Devotional – Unity of Faith

Kenneth Copeland 21 September 2018 Daily Devotional 

Topic: Unity of Faith

Scripture: And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ. – Ephesians 4:11-13

Message: Till we all come in the unity of the faith. What this scripture means is simply this: If we’re ever going to become truly powerful in the kingdom of God, if we’re ever going to be any great threat to the devil, we’re going to have to grow up—together.

Kenneth Copeland 21 September 2018 Daily Devotional – Unity of Faith

It won’t be enough for just a few of us to grow up on our own and say, “Too bad” about everyone else. It doesn’t work that way. We’re a part of each other. The Bible calls us one body…the Body of Christ.

Let me give you an example. When I began teaching God’s revelation on the laws of prosperity, I started getting an amazing amount of flack. Preachers started calling me and chewing me out because I wouldn’t borrow money and things like that. Finally God said to me one day in prayer, Don’t teach on the laws of prosperity anymore until I tell you to.

bKenneth Copeland 21 September 2018 Daily Devotional – Unity of Faith

“Why not?” I asked.

There’s strife in the camp, He told me. Other preachers are mad at you and in strife over it.

I didn’t realize then that the level where we stopped would affect us all. I didn’t realize that even I wouldn’t be able to go on and operate in the additional laws of prosperity until the rest of the Body would go with me.

We’re not islands unto ourselves. I can’t do anything without affecting you. You can’t do anything without affecting me. We’re joined together by God but held together by one another (Ephesians 4:16). We can only grow up…together!

Kenneth Copeland 21 September 2018 Daily Devotional – Unity of Faith

Learn to walk in love. Refuse to fall prey to division and isolation. Feed on the Word daily and encourage your brothers and sisters by feeding it to them too, so we can all grow up to be “a perfect [or mature] man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.”

Scripture Reading: 1 Corinthians 12:13-28

Kenneth Copeland 21 September 2018 Daily Devotional was written by Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, the leader of the Kenneth Copeland Ministries (www.KCM.org) that specializes in teaching principles of bible faith – prayer, healing, salvation and other biblical topics.

Billy Graham Daily Devotional 21 September 2018 – The Mysteries of God

Billy Graham Daily Devotional 21 September 2018

Topic: The Mysteries of God

Scripture: Since earliest times men have seen the earth and sky and all God made, and have known of his existence and great eternal power . . . – Romans 1:20 (TLB)

Message: If you try to rationalize God exhaustively, you will fail. There are mysteries about God that we will never understand in this life. How can the small and finite, limited to time and space, understand an infinite God! We should not think it strange that it is impossible to explain many mysteries in the realm of matter.

Billy Graham Daily Devotional 21 September 2018 – The Mysteries of God

Who can explain why objects are always attracted to the center of the earth? Who can fathom the law of gravity? Newton discovered it, but he could not explain it. Who can explain the miracle of reproduction? . . . Thus many evidences and many arguments could be advanced to indicate there is a God.

Yet the plain truth is this: God cannot be proved by mere rationalization. He cannot be contained in a tiny man-made test tube or confined to an algebraic formula. If God can be fully proved by the human mind, then He is no greater than the mind that proves Him.

Billy Graham Daily Devotional 21 September 2018 – The Mysteries of God

Even though we can’t comprehend God, we can understand His attributes. Learn more.

Prayer for the day:
Lord God almighty, although my finite mind cannot comprehend the magnitude of Your greatness, I have felt Your presence in the quiet of my heart and I am gladdened.
