Every time people disobey God, they widen their distance from God; and distance from God equals disaster in life.
SCRIPTURE: And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. 2 Corinthians 10:6
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When your obedience is complete, nothing is permitted to disobey you.
It has been established that the devil fights God’s purpose for your life using some enemies of destiny.
Now, one enemy of destiny is the lifestyle of disobedience. It was disobedience that aborted the destiny of Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:24). Every time people agree to disobey God, they have also agreed to abort their destiny.
Now, let me give you three key thoughts on disobedience.
- Disobedience to God equals disconnection from destiny.
The glorious destiny of Adam and Eve was aborted because of their disobedience to God (Genesis 3:24). To disobey God is to be disconnected from destiny.
- Disobedience to God equals distance from God.
Adam and Eve were driven from the Presence of God at the frequency of disobedience (Genesis 3:24). Every time people disobey God, they widen their distance from God; and distance from God equals disaster in life.
- Rebellion to God provokes rebellion from the earth.
Adam rebelled against God and the earth also rebelled against him (Genesis 3:17-18). Everything rebels against the person who rebels against God. When your obedience is complete, nothing is permitted to disobey you (2 Corinthians 10:6). But when your obedience is not complete, everything is permitted to rebel against you.
Beloved, my counsel is, make up your mind to live a lifestyle of obedience.
Remember this: When your obedience is complete, nothing is permitted to disobey you.
- Ask God to deliver you from the lifestyle of disobedience.
- Make the choice to obey God always.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for showing me the lifestyle of disobedience as an enemy of destiny. I receive the grace for total and complete obedience, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: The extent of contribution you can make in your generation, the extent to which you can speak and be heard, the extent to which you can command and be obeyed is hooked up to your character. Culled from “WHO ARE YOU?” by Dr Paul Enenche.
AMAZING FACT: The horned lizard is able to shoot blood from its own eyes, up to a distance of 3 feet away. The rather bizarre and disgusting act is a defensive mechanism to confuse predators.
