Seeds Of Destiny 6 September 2023 Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche TOPIC: Your Environment And Your Attainment


SCRIPTURE: Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. 1 Corinthians 15:33.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your environment affects your attainment in life. The world you live in affects the life that you live.


Some years back, I heard an insightful story about a goat that grew among dogs. Eventually, this goat began to behave exactly the way dogs behave.

One day, the goat ran out to welcome its owner wagging its tail exactly the way the dogs do to their owner whenever he returned from work.

The goat also began to eat certain things the dogs ate because it was raised among dogs.

You see, your environment affects your attainment in life. The world you live in affects the life that you live. The input you receive into your life from your environment affects the output of your life. The friends you keep, the environment you live in, the people you give your ears to, what your eyes see, etc. affect how far you can go in life.

You must understand that the environment the goat in our story lived in corrupted its destiny. It was not meant to behave like a dog, but because it found itself in the environment of dogs, its destiny was corrupted.

Beloved, there may be a house you must move out of to safeguard your future. It may be a free accommodation, but you must run out of it for your destiny not to be aborted.

At times, someone you call a friend may be a demon in disguise. There may be a job you must resign from to secure your future. There may be someone whose advice has made you to remain unmarried; cut off your relationship with such a person. The inputs into your life determine the outcome of your life.

Correct character can be corrupted by bad association (1 Corinthians 15:33). When Samson consistently listened to wrong words from the lips of Delilah, his life and destiny ended tragically. Your environment affects your attainment.

My counsel is, be mindful of your environment. Cut off from every association that has the capacity to jeopardise your destiny.

REMEMBER THIS: Your environment affects your attainment in life. The world you live in affects the life that you live.


1. Disconnect from every wrong environment or association that may corrupt your destiny.

2. Ask God to give you quality associations that will enhance your destiny.

PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I receive the grace to make and maintain quality associations and environment that will enhance my destiny, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
