Lessons Of Destiny By Pastor Paul Enenche

POWER COMMUNION SERVICE – WEDNESDAY, 20TH MAY 2020
ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): PSALM 19:1-3
MESSAGE TOPIC: LESSONS OF DESTINY
BY: DR. PAUL ENENCHE

SERVICE OBJECTIVE: Understanding how destiny is moulded by lessons

THINGS TO NOTE:

What you know determines what you choose
Decisions are products of knowledge and understanding
People make choices on the basis of what they know
What you choose determines how you act or behave
Nobody steals by accident; they make the choice then put forth the action
How you behave determines what you become
Actions determine habit, habit determines character and character determines destiny
These are what you call the lessons of destiny, and these lessons shape your life and destiny.
