SEEDS OF DESTINY SOD TODAY DEVOTIONAL BY PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE (JANUARY 23, 2024)

Read Today’s Seeds of Destiny Daily Devotional 23rd January 2024 (SOD Today Devotional)

TOPIC: THE TRAGEDY OF UNGODLY PROSPERITY

SCRIPTURE: Went not mine heart with thee, when the man turned again from his chariot to meet thee? Is it a time to receive money, and to receive garments, and oliveyards, and vineyards, and sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and maidservants? The leprosy therefore of Naaman shall cleave unto thee, and unto thy seed for ever. And he went out from his presence a leper as white as snow. 2 Kings 5:26-27.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Ungodly prosperity invites spiritual and physical leprosy.

Naaman was a Syrian Army Captain. He was also a leper who came to Prophet Elisha to be cleansed of his leprosy. When he was healed by the prophetic anointing of Elisha, he offered Prophet Elisha some money but the prophet refused the offer. As a matter of fact, a genuine prophet would not collect money in exchange for a miracle.

However, Gehazi, the servant of Prophet Elisha, decided to run after Naaman and collected the money that his master, Elisha, had rejected.

It is important to know that there are people whose purpose in Ministry is to deal with people and extort money from them. Gehazi was one of them. This category of people are not genuine servants of God, but servants of money.

Gehazi ran after Naaman and collected the gifts, and when he returned, Elijah told him,
Went not mine heart with thee, when the man turned again from his chariot to meet thee? Is it a time to receive money, and to receive garments, and oliveyards, and vineyards, and sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and maidservants? The leprosy therefore of Naaman shall cleave unto thee, and unto thy seed for ever. And he went out from his presence a leper as white as snow.
2 Kings 5:26-27.

What a heart-rending tragedy!

Beloved, to look for Naaman’s prosperity is to inherit Naaman’s leprosy. This means that ungodly prosperity invites spiritual and physical leprosy. You cannot have Naaman’s prosperity and not have his leprosy. You cannot embrace Naaman’s prosperity and escape his leprosy.

Gehazi went after Naaman’s prosperity and later inherited Naaman’s leprosy. That will not be your portion in Jesus’ Name.

REMEMBER THIS: Ungodly prosperity invites spiritual and physical leprosy.

ASSIGNMENTS:
1. Take your eyes off ungodly prosperity.
2. Ask God to prosper you legitimately.

PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You deliver me from the temptation of ungodly prosperity in order to escape physical “leprosy”. Show me the pathway to Kingdom prosperity, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: Getting money by ungodly or unrighteous means is a foolish thing to do. Culled from the book, “21 FOOLISH THINGS PEOPLE DO” by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY READING: Leviticus 20-24.

AMAZING FACT: Eagles are monogamous. They have one mate for life and use the same nest each year.

DECLARATION/WORD: May you never be a victim of adversity through the spell of greed and falsehood in Jesus Name.
