DCLM Higher Everyday 15 January 2022 Devotional by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — The destiny of Deceivers


TEXT: PSALM 101:1-8

1 (A Psalm of David.) I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, will I sing.

2 I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.

3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.

4 A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked person.

5 Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.

6 Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me.

7 He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.

8 I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.

MEMORY VERSE: “He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight” (PSALM 101:7).


The danger of being associates of deceivers is that deceivers do not bear the consequences of their deeds alone; the deceived share in their pains and judgments. Such was the case of the Israelites when they fell for Absalom’s deception.

Also Read Bible Doctrine 22: Hell

Our text clearly states God’s displeasure against deceivers. The implication of their actions, among others, is expulsion from God’s presence and care. Many youths are being deceived by false prophets and teachers who teach false doctrine of eternal security without holiness. Such deceivers can draw much crowd to themselves, yet they are abominable before God.

Also Read Bible Doctrine 21: The New Heaven and the new Earth

Christian youths should increase their voices of holiness through their impeccable lives. An American poet, Criss Jami, admonishes that, “One who speaks a mere portion of truth to deceive is a craftsman of destruction.”

Therefore, you should avoid being deceived because that will damn your soul. You must also withdraw your allegiance and support of any kind from preachers of errors who are in our schools and neighbourhood to deceive people. Come out of deceit today.

QUOTE: The deceived share in their pains.

CHALLENGE: Stay away from deceivers.

PRAYER: Lord, give me the courage to stand for the truth.

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
