SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY

A DEVOTIONAL DAILY GUIDE BY DR PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE 

*TOPIC: HOW HEARING AFFECTS YOUR FAITH

DATE: FRIDAY 14 MAY, 2021 

SCRIPTURE: Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. Matthew 13:13.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: If you hear the right thing, you get the right understanding, and the right understanding births your faith. 

The right sound has been confirmed to be a necessary ingredient for the nourishment of faith. What you hear affects your faith. This is because faith cometh by hearing (Romans 10:17).

Now, one way hearing affects your faith is, 

Hearing is a gateway to understanding.

Understanding brings faith. So, if you hear the right thing, you get the right understanding, and the right understanding births your faith. 

Matthew 13:13 says, Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

This means, if they cannot hear, they cannot understand. But if they can hear, they can understand. 

Please, to keep your faith alive, you must be selective in what you allow into your ears. To keep your faith alive, you must watch who speaks into your life. There are people who the enemy sent to crash your vision. When you tell such people what you are trusting God to achieve, they would say, “Who told you that it is achievable? No! No! No! Not in this country. Stop dreaming.” 

Some of them are agents of the devil, though they won’t come openly as one. They may come as good friends but satan had already taken possession of them at that moment for such evil purpose. That was how satan entered Judas Iscariot. satan had also influenced Peter when Jesus rebuked him, “Get behind me satan…” (Matthew 16:23), not “Get behind me Peter!” Peter, to Jesus, became satan at that moment. 

Beloved, be selective in what you allow into your ears.

Remember this: If you hear the right thing, you get the right understanding, and the right understanding births your faith. 

ASSIGNMENTS:

1. Go through today’s message again and meditate on it.

2. Be selective in what you allow into your ears.

PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to be selective in what I hear. Guide me into hearing the right thing, Lord, in Jesus’ Name. 

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: KEEPING YOUR FAITH ALIVE (PART 1)

QUOTE: Your faith in God produces unbelievable results. Culled from “15 KINGDOM STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL” by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY READING: Psalm 16-18

REFLECTION: Do you hear the Word just for the sake of hearing and religious obligation or you hear the Word to understand? What are the top voices in your life? Is being selective in hearing being deliberate with your faith?

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: A higher level of word understanding is released on you in Jesus’ Name.
