Excellence And Distinction In Our Gene – Seeds Of Destiny Devotional, 25 November 2021 By Pastor Paul Enenche
SCRIPTURE: O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens. Psalm 8:1
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You don’t struggle to live in the realm of authority, distinction and excellence because you are created in the Image of the Most Excellent God.
As children of God, we are destined for existence in excellence and distinction. God, our Father is the Most Excellent God, so, as His Children, we have excellence and distinction in our gene. We are destined for existence in distinction and excellence since our God is the God of excellence and distinction (Genesis 1:31, Psalm 8:1, 9), and we are designed to produce after His kind (Genesis 1:26-27).
Mankind was created after the likeness of God. Man originated from God. You know, source determines success; origin determines destiny. To know your Source is to be successful in life; to recognise your Origin is to fulfil your destiny. This means, when you recognise God as your Source and Origin in life, your success or destiny fulfilment is guaranteed.
Let me give you an example to illustrate this: An eaglet does not struggle to fly; a cub (baby lion) does not struggle to roar and a calf (baby elephant) does not struggle to be big. This is because each of these animals has the gene of their parents in them; they could fly, roar and grow big effortlessly because they carry the nature of their parents in them.
Now, just as the eaglet does not struggle to fly, the cub does not struggle to roar and the calf does not struggle to be big; as a child of the Great God, there is a seed of greatness in you. You cannot struggle to be great in life. You don’t struggle to live in the realm of authority, distinction and excellence because you are created in the image of the Most Excellent God.
Remember this: You don’t struggle to live in the realm of authority, distinction and excellence because you are created in the image of the Most Excellent God.
1. Make up your mind to exist in excellence and distinction.
2. Reject the lifestyle of mediocrity and average existence.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for Your Word to me today. I ask for the impartation of the Spirit of excellence and distinction, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: God’s servant, Bishop David Oyedepo has said that those who strive for excellence do not strive with people. Culled from “21 FOOLISH THINGS PEOPLE DO” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY READING: 2 Corinthians 1- 3
REFLECTION: Who you behold affects what you become; what you look at affects what you look like. Who you came out of affects what can come out of you. Know whose you are.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Receive a fresh baptism of the Spirit of excellence in your life right now in the Name of Jesus Christ.
