Dunamis’ Seeds Of Destiny 18 August 2021 Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche: Sin – The Root Of Generational Calamity

TOPIC: Sin – The Root Of Generational Calamity (Seeds Of Destiny 18 August 2021)

The crookedness of today equals the wretchedness of tomorrow. What you do today can affect your children and their destinies tomorrow.

SCRIPTURE: And Joshua said, Why hast thou troubled us? the Lord shall trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones. Joshua 7:25.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The crookedness of today equals the wretchedness of tomorrow. What you do today can affect your children and their destinies tomorrow.

Sin has been confirmed to be a major cause of generational calamity and disaster. The Scripture is filled with the examples of people who were negatively affected by sin. Examples abound of people who took what did not belong to them and the consequences they suffered. Adam and Eve, and Rachel were examples. They took what they were not licensed to take and they ended in disaster.

Now, another example of people who suffered the calamitous consequences of sin was Achan. Achan took what he was not licensed to take, thereby provoking generational calamity and tragedy.

When the children of Israel destroyed Jericho, God told them not to touch or carry anything from Jericho. But Achan decided to take a Babylonish garment that he was not supposed to take. Thereafter, Israel went to a battle with a small country called Ai, and Israel was beaten and almost defeated by Ai.

The children of Israel turned their back and ran to Joshua. When Joshua inquired of God, God told him that Israel had touched the accursed thing. When nobody owned up, they had to cast lots and it fell on Achan. He and his family were stoned to death (Joshua 7:25).

You see, he took only a Babylonish garment and a wedge of gold, but he lost everything, including his life and family in one day. He also lost the riches he had before, riches he rightly laboured for.

It is very painful to know that even his wife and children died with him. This means, what you do can affect your children and their future. Corrupt and fraudulent people jeopardize the future of their family members.

I was tempted to ask why his wife and children had to suffer the consequence of his sin. Then I realized that it was possible that when he brought home the stolen items, they did not speak up, but rather agreed to partake in them, and so, they also suffered the consequences.

Beloved, the crookedness of today equals the wretchedness of tomorrow. What you do today can affect your children and their destinies tomorrow.

Remember this: The crookedness of today equals the wretchedness of tomorrow. What you do today can affect your children and their destinies tomorrow.


  1. Go through today’s message again.
  2. Make up your mind not to take what you are not rightly given.

PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You deliver me from the temptation of taking what does not belong to me. Help me to be contented with what You have given me Lord, in Jesus’ Name.


QUOTE: When you spend time with God, your iniquity comes under scrutiny; your sin cannot be hidden. Culled from “WHO ARE YOU?” by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY READING: Jeremiah 37-39

REFLECTION: People have the power to decide their actions but they have no power to determine their consequences. Your actions are in your hands but their consequences are out of your control. Think well before you can act.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: The Lord release mercy on you over every negative consequence of your yesterday’s actions in Jesus’ Name.

Today’s devotional was written by Pastor Paul Enenche of the Dunamis International Gospel Centre (DIGC), headquartered at Abuja, Nigeria, with Pastor Paul and Becky Enenche, as the Senior Pastors. It is a power-packed arena where God’s Presence, Principles and Power are at work for the salvation, healing and restoration of human destinies and dignities
