To follow the crowd makes people to be lost in the crowd.
SCRIPTURE: For every man shall bear his own burden. Galatians 6:5
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To follow the crowd makes people to be lost in the crowd.
Sometime ago, a young man shared a testimony in our church. He was diagnosed with Hepatitis B and his liver was already affected. Then he came for one of our worship and wonders nights trusting God to be healed.
In the course of the vigil, around 3am, his friend, who brought him to church in his car told him, “Let us go home”. This young man was having just N50 and so, going with his friend seemed the only available means of returning home. That is to say, if he didn’t go with the friend, he may be stranded.
Now, as he was about to go, a voice, possibly from the Lord, asked him: “Have you achieved what you came to the vigil for?” Then he turned back immediately and his friend left.
That night, his Word came almost at the end of the service and he was healed of Hepatitis B. When he went back for a medical check-up, it was medically confirmed that he was Hepatitis B Negative. He went from one laboratory to another and he was confirmed to be truly healed.
You see, when this young man decided to make his responsibility in God personal, his result was made possible.
Beloved, do not leave the church service before the final or closing prayer. To follow the crowd makes people to be lost in the crowd. In this life, if you don’t have a mind of your own, you will follow the mind of others. It is when your responsibility towards God is personal that your results become possible.
Remember this: To follow the crowd makes people to be lost in the crowd.
- Make up your mind to take personal responsibility in your relationship with, and expectation from God.
- Avoid the bandwagon effect.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the grace to take personal responsibility in my relationship with You. I refuse to follow others to do wrong, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

REFLECTION: Destiny decisions are personal decisions. Human circumstances are different, so human choices must be different. To leave critical decisions of life in the hands of so-called friends is signature for disaster.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: You shall not miss your hour of visitation in Jesus’ Name.
The present devotion was composed by Pastor Paul Enenche of the Dunamis International Gospel Center (DIGC), settled at Abuja, Nigeria, with Pastor Paul and Becky Enenche, as the Senior Pastors. It is a force stuffed field where God’s Presence, Principles and Power are grinding away for the salvation, recuperating and rebuilding of human fates and nobilities.
LIGHTGOSPEL COUNSEL’S: Until you are brought back to life, God regularly standing presence will never be with you. You must be born again to enjoy constant triumph. If it’s not too much trouble say the showed petition beneath in Faith.
Lord Jesus, come into my life. I believe acknowledge you as my Lord and Personal Savior. I believe in my heart that You died and became alive once again to save me. Thank You Lord for saving me, in Jesus precious name, Amen.
