Seeds of Destiny 22 January 2019 Daily Devotional by Dr. Paul Enenche
TOPIC: Being Found Where God is Found
SCRIPTURE: And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the Lord God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word. 1 Kings 17:1
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Walking with God implies being found where God is found and being absent from where God is absent.
MESSAGE: Sometime ago, I went for a program in a 5-star hotel and then met an older man who wanted to speak with me over an issue. He suggested that two of us should sit at the pool bar section of the hotel and talk. I told him that I would not follow him to that place and sit down around half-naked people including the opposite sex swimming at the pool and also with people drinking alcohol. I cannot be found there; we can talk anywhere but that kind of place is abominable to me. This is because that is an ungodly environment. And doing that would not portray a godly image of a spiritual leader to members of his congregation. If the people I lead see me in that kind of place, they would ask, ‘What is pastor doing here?’ I did that because I am not supposed to be found where God is not found; a dedicated person is only found where God is found and absent from where God is absent.
Beloved, to be a dedicated person is to be found where God can be found and be absent from where God is absent. Elijah told Ahab, ‘…before God whom I stand…’ (1 kings 17:1). This means, walking with God implies being found where God is found and being absent from where God is absent.
Beloved, make up your mind not to be found in a place where God is absent; do not engage in an activity that drives God away from your life. Do not follow people to an environment where the presence of the devil is active and his activity is being perpetrated.
Remember this: Walking with God implies being found where God is found and being absent from where God is absent.
