SEEDS OF DESTINY

DAILY DEVOTIONAL GUIDE OF DUNAMIS CHURCH

DATE: MONDAY 11TH JANUARY, 2021

TOPIC: SLOTHFULNESS – THE PATHWAY TO DEGRADATION

You are not designed by God to exist for fashion; rather, you are designed to function. Anywhere life is not functional, it becomes dysfunctional, and it will acquire afflictions.

SCRIPTURE: Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; Romans 12:11

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The way of slothfulness is the way of systemic degradation. Systems are degraded where slothfulness is allowed.

It has been confirmed that the way of slothfulness is the way of systemic degradation. Systems are degraded where slothfulness is allowed. 

There is an animal called the sloth. Sloths are medium-sized mammals that live in the central and South American rainforests. The sloth got its name from its slow movement. The sloth is the slowest mammal on Earth. It hangs on trees upside down because it is too tired to lie normally. It is very slothful and sloppy. ‘Sloth’ is the root word in the word ‘slothfulness’. 

This animal sleeps fifteen hours a day; it has a tiny tail, big eyes and eats fruits and leaves of various types. Sloths cannot walk. If they are to move at all, they are extremely slow. Due to the slothfulness of sloths, fungi grow on their bodies. Green algae grow on their hairs. This is because they are too tired to drive or prevent the growth of unwanted organism on their bodies. This confirms the statement that slothfulness is the way to systemic degradation. Lethargy is the death of energy. 

Beloved, the human body is designed by God to be active and not idle. God designed the body to be functional and not fashional. This means, you are not designed by God to exist for fashion; rather, you are designed to function. Anywhere life is not functional, it becomes dysfunctional, and it will acquire afflictions. Therefore, avoid the way of slothfulness.

Remember this: The way of slothfulness is the way of systemic degradation. Systems are degraded where slothfulness is allowed.

ASSIGNMENTS:

1. Avoid the way of slothfulness and idleness.

2. Engage your hands in legitimately productive and profitable activity.

PRAYER: O Lord, I ask that You deliver me from every form of slothfulness and idleness. I receive the grace to engage my hands in legitimately profitable activity, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: MAKING THE MOST OF LIFE.

QUOTE: The folding of the hands to do nothing is the mark of a fool. Laziness is not wisdom; it is foolishness. Doing nothing, waiting for rescue, and hoping for things to change is not wisdom. Culled from “21 FOOLISH THINGS PEOPLE DO” by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY READING: Exodus 1-5.

AMAZING FACT: Scientists have performed brain surgery on cockroaches.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: The spell of slothfulness is broken off your life in Jesus’ Name. 

BY DR PST. PAUL ENENCHE
