Hindrances To A Purposeful Life – Seeds Of Destiny, 26 November 2021 By Pastor Paul Enenche
SCRIPTURE: Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Proverbs 4:23
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Life issues out of thought. Thought quality affects life quality.
Kenneth Hagin, in one of his books said that after 15 years of Ministry, God told him to get ready to enter the first chapter of His plan for his life. He was shocked and said to God, “If I have not entered the first step of your plan for my life, what have I been doing with my life these past 15 years?” And God made him to understand that what he had done before this time was just introduction to the real Ministry.
So, it is easy for people to live and die without fulfilling the purpose why they were born. This happens because there are hindrances to purpose fulfilment.
Now, what are the hindrances to a life of purpose? Here is a list of some of them:
1. Lack of thought (Prov. 4:23).
Life issues out of thought. Thought quality affects life quality. Lack of thought is a hindrance to a purposeful life.
2. Lack of a sense of value for Life and Time
A lack of understanding of what life is all about hinders destiny fulfilment. When people live at random, they live without meaning.
3. Lack of self-control (Luke 9:23)
When a person’s life is enslaved by the flesh, he cannot fulfil God’s Purpose for his life.
4. The lack of quality association:
A person whose life is surrounded by unprofitable people cannot fulfil God’s Purpose.
Beloved, make up your mind to fulfil God’s purpose by avoiding the hindrances to a purposeful life.
Remember this: Life issues out of thought. Thought quality affects life quality.
1. Thoughtfully go through today’s message again.
2. Reject every hindrance to a purposeful life.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Purpose for my life. I receive the grace to fulfil Your purpose for my life Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

REFLECTION: What is most important is not what you think is right; it is what God thinks; what is most important is not the applause of men. It is the verdict of God. Be in touch with what matters.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: The Lord deliver you from the tragedy of a wasted existence.
