Your destiny, your potential and life’s assignment are at the mercy of your character. If you are doing nothing about your character, then you are doing nothing about your destiny.
SCRIPTURE: Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. 1 Corinthians 15:33
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: If you are doing nothing about your character, you are doing nothing about your destiny.
Yesterday, we were made to understand that character is existing in the realm of consistent positive action or behaviour.We also understood that what would market us in this life and in eternity is our character and that our character can speak for us in areas where certificate and beauty cannot speak for us.
Today, we want to look at the necessity of character, especially as it applies to our destiny.
Now, why is character necessary?
Character determines destiny.
Your future hangs on your nature. Samson was a man of very high destiny which was prophesied from the womb of his mother. He was filled with the Spirit of God from the womb, a Nazarite. The Spirit of God moved on him at will. As a teenager, he would tear a lion with his bare hands. But he was not careful, he kept running from one prostitute to another until the final one arrested him. Delilah became his disaster (Judges 16:20). Lack of character ruined his destiny.
The devil is toying with the lives of many people because of lack of character. Your destiny, your potential and life’s assignment are at the mercy of your character. If you are doing nothing about your character, then you are doing nothing about your destiny.
My counsel is, work on your character. Character requires workmanship because we live in a world that is consistently confronting our character. We live in a generation where you need to watch your character consistently in order to avoid sin and a consequential eternity in hell. The Lord shall help us, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: If you are doing nothing about your character, you are doing nothing about your destiny.
1. Flee from every appearance of evil.
2. Avoid any action that will cause sin or guilt in your life.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for Your help to work on my character. Remove every stain and guilt of sin that tends to weigh me down, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
