Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father’s bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch. – Genesis 49:4.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your manners determine your making; your nature determines your future and your habits determine your habitat in life.
There is an undeniable connection between character and destiny. From our anchor scripture, we can deduce that as soon as Reuben had a carnal knowledge of his father’s wife, he lost grip of his destiny.
Beloved, your character is the greatest determinant of your destiny. Who you are determines what you can become. The quality of your destiny is affected by the strength of your character. What differentiates people’s destinies is their manner. We can have the same destiny if we have the same manner. To matter in life you must be a person of quality manner.
Your manners determine your making; your nature determines your future and your habits determine your habitat in life.
The truth is, if the devil wants to destroy your destiny he begins to tempt you to compromise your integrity. The way of integrity, at any time, is superior to the way of compromise.
Your character is an expression of who you are. To succeed in life, you must be a person of character.
I prophesy on you the grace for a solid character that will guarantee the security of your destiny in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: Your manners determine your making; your nature determines your future and your habits determine your habitat in life.
1. Take a conscientious character examination on yourself.
2. Trash any negative character trait in you that has the capacity to make you suffer a miscarriage of destiny.
