Dunamis’ Seeds of Destiny 17 March 2020 Devotional by Pastor Paul Enenche – Lifted To Shine By Redemption
Topic: Lifted To Shine By Redemption
It is the destiny of man to shine through Redemption. Redemption does not just only lift a man up, it lifts him up to shine; it is an elevation unto distinction.
SCRIPTURE: But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: Ephesians 2:4-6
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To be a failure is a Kingdom abomination; to be a struggler is inconsistent with Redemption.
A major outcome of Redemption is the elevation of humanity from the fallen state. When Adam rebelled against God in disobedience at creation, humanity crashed from glory to groaning, from authority to captivity, from triumph to travail, from power to pressure and from success to struggles.
But Jesus Christ came to take us from the realm of shame to the realm of glory to sit with Him in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:4-6). It is the destiny of man to shine through Redemption. Redemption does not just only lift a man up, it lifts him up to shine; it is an elevation unto distinction. To shine means to be outstanding; to exist in distinction, prominence and glory.
To be a failure is a Kingdom abomination; to be a struggler is inconsistent with Redemption.
Now, what does it take to shine in Redemption? I will state two things you can do:
1. Release the light you carry (Luke 9:29).
Release your God-given potential and internal gifting; do not hold them back. As Jesus prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering. That is, from inside out.
2. Reflect the light you receive.
When you come in the vicinity of light carriers, you connect light (Judges 7:17). Take steps after your God-ordained pastor or mentor. The outcome is, people feel something when they come near you. Wherever you are living must be saturated, infiltrated, penetrated, animated and percolated with the power, presence, and anointing of God through valuable spiritual connectivity.
Today, I decree that as you abide by these instructions, your shining is confirmed, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: To be a failure is a Kingdom abomination; to be a struggler is inconsistent with redemption.
- Determine to be a success in your generation; avoid mediocre existence.
- Let your lifestyle draw people close to God.
PRAYER: Lord, I thank You for Your Redemption power over my life. Help me to live for You all the days of my life, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
