Topic: Replacing Negative Tendencies/Habits With Positive Ones [Seeds of Destiny Saturday June 16, 2018]
Scripture: And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me. Genesis 32:26.
Thought For The Day: If you attack a negative tendency, attract the positive one.
The Scriptures make it clear that negative tendencies and habits limit a person from fulfilling God’s purpose for his life. Previously, we itemised ways of dealing with them.
However, dealing with these negative habits leaves a vacuum that needs to be filled. Thus, when these negative habits are dealt with, it is very important to replace them with positive ones.
When Jacob realized that a curse was after his life, he decided to make demands on the blessing of God instead of the curse. He told the angel “I will not let you go until you bless me”. What he meant was that he knew something (a curse) other than the blessing had been following him, so, he asked God to replace it with the blessing.
Beloved, if you notice and deal with rejection in your life, for example, then make demands on acceptance; you do not only break the curse in your life; you also need to receive the blessing. If you attack a negative tendency, attract the positive one. When you rebuke stagnation from your life, release progress and acceleration upon your life and destiny.
When you stop being in the company of drunkards and alcoholics and sitting in pubs, ensure to always be in the House of God serving Him permanently (Psalms 27:4). As you stop gratifying your flesh, decide to please God; engage in deep worship and communion with the Holy Spirit. Saturate yourself with God’s Presence.
This is because nature abhors vacuum; the absence of seed equals the abundance of weed. The absence of light is the appearance of darkness; so, if you want darkness to be far from you, ensure that you stuff yourself with the light of God’s Word (Matthew 12:43-45).
Remember this: If you attack a negative tendency, attract the positive one.
