The Light Daily Devotional – Who Commands your Destiny?
Focus: Who Commands your Destiny?
WORD FOR TODAY
The one you yield yourself to listen to and obey is the one who commands your destiny. Your lifestyle in all domains of life is the picture which depicts the works of the one who commands your destiny!
“Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves, slaves, to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death or of obedience leading to righteousness?” (Romans 6:16 NKJV)
There is no free ranger in the journey of life; the life of every man is ruled by either sinful nature or the Holy Spirit. The life you live is the most important pointer to who truly commands your destiny. The same will also determine your final destination when this life is over.
When the life of a man is characterized by adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, unforgiveness there is no doubt in the fact that the sinful nature commands his destiny. You cannot obey God and manifest these attributes.
When Jesus through the Holy Spirit commands your destiny your life will be characterized by love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. He will influence you to do the will of God and your life will be characterized by the attributes of Christ Jesus!
+ Who commands your destiny?
Prayer: Lord! I surrender my life to you, live your life in me and direct my destiny in Jesus’ name. Amen
Emphasis: The life you live both in secret and in the public signifies the attribute of the one that commands your destiny!
Have a Gracious Wednesday!
