Topic: The Power of Purity [Seeds of Destiny 20 September 2018 Daily Devotional]
Scripture: “The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” Proverbs 28:1
Thought For The Day: Whatever weakens your conscience weakens your authority.
Purity is the condition or quality of being pure; freedom from anything that debases,”contaminates, pollutes. It is freedom from guilt or evil. It is innocence, uprightness or righteousness. Purity also refers to physical chastity or virginity.
There is power in purity; that is to say, purity attracts power. This means, to be righteous is to be powerful. On the other hand, where there is no purity, there will be no power. That is why our anchor Scripture clearly shows that the righteous are as bold and powerful as a lion. This implies that impurity on the other hand is the doorway to weakness in life.
Now, Prophet Samuel is a scriptural figure whose life and Ministry demonstrated the connection between purity and power. In 1 Samuel 12″:1-5,”Samuel asked the Israelites, “Whose ox have I taken?…whom have I defrauded? Whom have I oppressed? or of whose hand have I received any bribe to blind mine eyes therewith?…. And they replied, Thou hast not defrauded us, nor oppressed us, neither hast thou taken ought of any man’s hand…
Samuel was a man of unquestionable integrity. No wonder, he manifested unusual dimensions of supernatural power. In 1 Samuel 12″:16-19,”Samuel called on the Lord and God sent thunder and rain during dry season.
First of all, Prophet Samuel asked, “What is my fault?” (Paraphrased) and they could not find his fault. He was faultless. So, on the foundation of that faultlessness, he manifested powerfulness.
Beloved, whatever weakens your conscience weakens your authority. The strength of the conscience determines the strength of authority. Whatever makes you feel guilty renders you powerless. So, avoid anything that makes you feel guilty.
Remember this: “Whatever weakens your conscience weakens your authority.”
1. Guard your heart from anything that defiles; never play around sin.
