PUT AWAY OTHER GODS – Dunamis Devotional (Tuesday, 08 November 2016) – By Dr. Paul Enenche
SCRIPTURE: ‘Now therefore fear the lord and serve him in Sincerity, and in truth, put the strange gods that your father served at the other side, and in Egypt, and served ye the Lord. Joshua 24:14
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Every sin has a god powering it.
Putting away other gods means eliminating from your life all the things that have the tendency of assuming the position of God in your life. For as long as you accord anything the place of God in your life, it has become your god.
It is established that God has positioned His children to bless them. The basis of that blessing is a covenant relationship with Him, and there can be no covenant relationship with God until there is the putting away of other gods.
Beloved, what is that negative lifestyle or sin that is contending with the place of God in your life?
The truth is, every sin has a god powering it. To be yielded to any sin is to be in active service of the god behind it. It could be the god of money and materialism, the god of alcohol and tobacco, the god of immorality and seduction, the god of bitterness and hatred, the god of jealousy, malice, envy, lying, deception, cheating etc.
Beloved, if you must partake in the covenant Blessing of God, then, you MUST put away these gods.
Remember This: Every sin has a god powering it.
1. Consciously put away anything or anybody that seems to be a god in your life.
2. Give God His place in your life today by making Him the number one priority of your life.
