TOPIC: SECURE YOUR FUTURE (I)

Read Genesis 34:1-5
1. And Dinah the daughter of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land.
2. And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her, and lay with her, and defiled her.
3. And his soul clave unto Dinah the daughter of Jacob, and he loved the damsel, and spake kindly unto the damsel.
4. And Shechem spake unto his father Hamor, saying, Get me this damsel to wife.
5. And Jacob heard that he had defiled Dinah his daughter: now his sons were with his cattle in the field: and Jacob held his peace until they were come.

MEMORISE: My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent (Proverbs 1:10)

EXPOSITION
Since there was yesterday and there is today, there would always be a tomorrow. Tomorrow is the future that starts from today. Raising hope is the fact that yesterday can be corrected today. Today and tomorrow can be perfected right from now. What you do today spells out what you become tomorrow. Today's devotion centres on the lives of some young persons recorded in the book of Genesis chapter 34.
First is Dinah, the only daughter of her father, Jacob. She was so unique, given that she was the only girl in the family of twelve boys. What a grace! She was a blessing to her family, and a future queen, a daughter of Zion par excellence. Dinah had ahead of her, a glorious destiny, but she forfeited it.
Before she could be celebrated, she was bastardised, and her glorious future was taken away from her, being very vulnerable and unsuspecting. Dinah's story is akin to that of Tamar, the sister of Absalom, both the children of King David (2 Sam. 13:1ff).
Nobody is more responsible for securing your future, vision and destiny, than you. There are factors and circumstances out there trying to destroy your future and tear it to pieces, right before your eyes. It takes you, only you with the help of the Lord, and by His Spirit, to say NO to destiny-destroying agencies, including wrong choices, bad companies, ungodly decisions, character deficiencies, evil habits, like clubbing, gaming, gambling, prostitution, etc.
The journey to your land of destiny starts now and only you have the compass and the wheel. Cooperate with the Holy Spirit, after you have accepted the Lordship of Jesus Christ, and as you continue to load your heart with the Word of God, you are securing the future.

PRAYER POINTS
1. I shun all habits that can destroy my life and destiny, with the help of the Holy Spirit, in Jesus' name.
2. Powers seeking to tamper with my glorious destiny, be destroyed, in Jesus' name.
3. O Lord, deliver all our ladies who are caught up in the web of prostitution. Help them to repent before it is too late.
