Topic: Put Away Other gods [Seeds Of Destiny 5 November 2019 Devotional]
Any sin you pamper can tamper with your destiny; the compromise you nurture today can puncture your future tomorrow.
SCRIPTURE: “Now therefore fear the lord and serve him in Sincerity, and in truth, put away the strange gods that your father served at the other side, and in Egypt, and served ye the Lord.” – Joshua 24:14
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Any sin you pamper can tamper with your destiny; the compromise you nurture today can puncture your future tomorrow.
There are things that tend to assume the place of God in one’s life done consistently or given undue attention; they are referred to as ‘other gods’ or idols. The Scripture makes it clear that you cannot serve God and other gods (idols) (Matthew 6:24).
Since no one can serve God and the other gods, what do you do to the other gods? Put them away.
To put away other gods implies the elimination of anything in your life that has the tendency of assuming the position of God.
Anything that occupies the place of God in your life is a candidate for death. Never pamper sin in your life; any sin you pamper can tamper with your destiny; any sinful habit you tolerate can terminate you.
Beloved, what is that negative lifestyle or sin that is contending for the place of God in your life? It could be the sin or god of alcohol and tobacco, the god of immorality and seduction, the god of bitterness and hatred, the god of jealousy, malice and envy, the god of lying, deception and cheating etc.
The truth is, any sin you trivialize today can truncate your destiny tomorrow. The compromise you nurture today can puncture your future.
So, kill that god before it kills you; kill that sin before it kills you; stop that sin before it stops you from fulfilling your destiny. The god of sin shall never assume dominion over your life in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: Any sin you pamper can tamper with your destiny; the compromise you nurture today can puncture your future tomorrow.
- Consciously put away anything or anybody that seems to constitute a god in your life.
- Never negotiate or explain sin away; flee in a hurry.
- Give God His place in your life today by making Him the number one priority of your life and existence.
