Dunamis’ Seeds of Destiny 17 September 2020 Devotional by Pastor Paul Enenche — Locating Specific Daily Instructions
Topic: Locating Specific Daily Instructions
Existence without instruction is existence without transformation; and existence without revelation is existence without revolution.
SCRIPTURE: The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. Psalm 19:1-2
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Existence without instruction is existence without transformation; and existence without revelation is existence without revolution.
It has been confirmed that wisdom is essential for daily living. To live well, you must live wisely. To live without regrets in life, you must live wisely. To live productively, you must locate wisdom for daily living.
Now, another wisdom tip for daily living is being on the lookout for specific direction and instruction for the day.
Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that every day comes with specific instruction(s); every day has something to say. From Psalm 19:1-2, we see that “Day unto day uttereth speech…” This means every day is saying something. There is the speech of the day and the knowledge of the night (Isaiah 50:4).
Many people keep on missing the instructions for the day; they hear nothing for the day. And existence without instruction is existence without transformation. Existence without revelation is existence without revolution.
It is revelation that brings elevation (Galatians 2:2). Each day comes with specific instruction. To access Divine instruction, you open your Bible and read with desperation. Then you ask God, “Lord, what are you saying to me out of these Scriptures?” and He will speak to you from His Word.
Sometime ago, I saw something from the Scripture that revolutionized my mind and life. I have read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation many times, and particularly that Bible verse several times before, but I did not see what I saw until that day.
Let me share it with you: The Scripture is Deuteronomy 9:5-6 which says, Not for thy righteousness, or for the uprightness of thine heart, dost thou go to possess their land: but for the wickedness of these nations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee, and that he may perform the word which the Lord sware unto thy fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Understand therefore, that the Lord thy God giveth thee not this good land to possess it for thy righteousness; for thou art a stiff-necked people.
When I asked God to speak to me from that Scripture, He said, “First, the way I discarded other nations before I gave their lands to you, I can also discard you, and give the same land to other people if found wanting. Second, if I have given you any place in life, it is possible that someone else should have been in that place but missed it because he failed me. Third, you are not there necessarily because you are perfect. So, everything I am doing with you is not about you, it is about me”. Powerful! Very amazing! It means humility is not a choice; it is compulsory.
When you read your Bible and ask God what He is saying, He will speak to you. You can hear God’s Voice from the Scripture, from someone’s behaviour, and from a scenario or a situation. So, look out for specific instructions and directions for the day. They will give you acceleration in life.
Remember this: Existence without instruction is existence without transformation; and existence without revelation is existence without revolution.
- Ask God for specific instructions daily.
- Discern God’s instructions from daily events and situations.
- Make up your mind to obey Divine instructions.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask for the sensitivity to discern Your instructions daily. Help me not to miss Your direction, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: In life, if you continue to receive instructions and you do not do them, a time will come when they will no more make meaning to you. Culled from “21 FOOLISH THINGS PEOPLE DO” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY READING: Hosea 10-12
AMAZING FACT: Ants have two stomachs, one for their own food and one to feed others.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Grace to hear His Voice in the verse is released today in Jesus’ Name.
