RUINED BY AN IMPULSE

SOUL-LIFT DAILY DEVOTIONAL WITH DR D M TIKILI

DATE: Sunday, 19 September , 2021.

TOPIC: RUINED BY AN IMPULSE

DEVOTIONAL READING: HEBREW 12:16,17

KEY VERSE:
Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright (Hebrews 12:16)

BIBLE CHARACTER IN VIEW: ESAU
Esau’s life was filled with choices he must have regretted bitterly. He appears to have been a person who found it difficult to consider consequences, reacting to the need of the moment without realizing what he was giving up to meet that need. Trading his birthright for a bowl of stew is the clearest example of his weakness. He acted on impulse, satisfying his immediate desire without pausing to consider the long term consequence.

We can fall into the same trap. At first we feel intensely satisfied, and sometimes even powerful, because we have obtained what we set out to get. But immediate pleasure and instant gratification often becloud our sense and sight of the future. We may feel so much pressure to indulge our appetites that nothing else seems to matter

What are you willing to trade for the things you want? Do you find yourself most times willing to give up anything for what you feel you need now? Does your family, spouse, integrity, body, or soul get included in these deals? Ask GOD to help you clearly see the long effects of your choices this week.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Watch Out For Dangerously Strong Impulsive Desires.

FURTHER STUDY: Genesis 25 – 36; Malachi 1:2-3; Hebrews 12:16,17

PROPHETIC DECLARATION

  1. O Lord, help me to die to self that you may come alive in me.
  2. O Lord, give me the spirit of self control in Jesus Christ’s Name.
  3. I speak and release favour upon my pastors and their families in the Name of Jesus Christ
  4. My Father as You showed favour to Joseph in the land of Egypt show me favour in this land {mention the city, country you live}
  5. My Father as a result of this lesson let my destiny manifest gloriously in Jesus Name

Be Lifted in Jesus Name.
