Seeds Of Destiny For Today 2024 MESSAGE:

Jacob had twelve sons, and Reuben was the first. But one day, Reuben defiled his father’s bed by sleeping with his father’s wife (Genesis 35:22). That act brought a curse on his life, a curse he never recovered from till he died.

At the end of Jacob’s life, he gathered all his children and began to give them rewards according to what they had done.
To Reuben, Jacob said:
Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power:
Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father’s bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.
Genesis 49:3-4.

Jacob seemed to have told Reuben, “Reuben, you are my first born. You are my strength and power, the excellency of strength and dignity, but you shall be unstable as water. Your doom is sealed because you defiled your father’s bed” (Paraphrased).

You see, the most critical determinant of your destiny is not your intelligence, money, handsomeness, or beauty, but your character. Your character is the greatest determinant of your destiny.

Who you are determines what you can become. There are many people who want to become many things in life such as doctors, lawyers, great preachers, entrepreneurs etc. All these are good visions and ambitions. However, until your character is in place, your destiny is out of place. What you will become in future is a product of who you are currently.

Therefore, you need to deliberately work on your character so you don’t end up disastrously in life like Reuben.

REMEMBER THIS: Who you are determines what you can become.

ASSIGNMENTS:

  1. In relation to your character and manners, ask yourself, “Who am I? How solid is my character?”
  2. Make up your mind not to end up like Reuben.

PRAYER: Thank You Lord for showing me the real determinant of destiny. I receive the grace to live right and end well in life as I develop and deploy positive character, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
