Topic: Distinguished By Dedication [Seeds Of Destiny 11 January 2019 Devotional]
Scripture: Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with – Jesus. Acts 4:13.
Thought For The Day: To release dedication to God is to command the attention of both Divinity and humanity.
The Scripture makes it clear that one thing God requires from His children is their dedication to Him (Matthew 6:33). God is attracted to people who are dedicated and devoted to Him and His Cause on the earth; He proves Himself in the lives of dedicated people.
Now, the question is, how does God prove Himself in the lives of dedicated people?
It is by distinguishing them from other people.
God distinguishes the dedicated by showing them to the world to let everyone know that they are not wasting their lives and time in serving Him; God makes the people of the world to know that people who are dedicated to Him are exceptionally different from other people.
Let me give you an example: Simon Peter was an unlearned and ignorant fisherman who decided to be dedicated to God. God honoured him by distinguishing him from other people; his life stood out from the rest by virtue of dedication. In Acts 4:13, we understand that when the people who knew how he was before he met Jesus saw how his life had turned around totally after his relationship with Jesus Christ, they were amazed. That is what God can do in the life of a dedicated person. Peter’s life was totally transformed by His dedication to Jesus. The only thing people could say was that he had been with Jesus Christ. Indeed, God distinguishes dedicated people.
Beloved, to release dedication to God is to command the attention of both Divinity and humanity. To release dedication to God is to be singled out from the crowd.
Remember this: To release dedication to God is to command the attention of both Divinity and humanity.
Make up your mind to follow Jesus Christ like Peter did no matter the cost.
Decide not to follow the crowd but the principles of God’s Word for your life.
Prayer: O Lord, I ask for the grace to release total commitment and dedication both to You and Your Course on earth. Help me Lord, to follow Your steps in everything I do, in Jesus’ Name.

John Ovye Godwin"Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for." Hebrews 11:1-2"By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible." Hebrews 11:3Prayer"Dear Father, I thank you for the power of the Gospel of Christ that grants me insight and foresight into the realities of the Kingdom. I pray that today, the eyes of many around the world, who are in darkness will be open to the light of the Gospel, and they be turned from darkness to light, and into the glorious liberty of the son of God, in Jesus’ Name. Amen. Share the Gospel of the Lord Jesus."
