“Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.” Isaiah 6:5 (NIV).

THOUGHT: A person’s mentality is corrupted when iniquity is permitted.

It has been established that iniquity corrupts destiny. Anywhere iniquity is allowed, destiny is corrupted.

I give you four things iniquity does to a person:

  1. Iniquity corrupts mentality.
    A person’s mentality is corrupted when iniquity is permitted. A man is unable to think straight because iniquity corrupted his mentality. For example, a man sees no reason why he should take care of his wife at home. When the wife asks him for Five Thousand Naira, it becomes a quarrel but when a “Jezebel” on the street needs Twenty-five Thousand Naira, the man will easily release it to her. This is because his mentality is corrupted. Iniquity makes a person to do things upside down by the corruption of iniquity.
  2. Iniquity attacks focus.
    Iniquity attacks focus. For instance, a drunkard is practically in loss of focus. His mind is taken off important things of life. He focuses on useless and aimless things. It is not possible to be focused on real things when your focus is distracted.
  3. Iniquity attacks potential.
    Iniquity weakens a man’s potential, capability, strength, and sharpness. Some time ago, I heard T. L. Osborn who said that whenever you allow sin in your life, something dies inside you (Romans 6:23). You may be alive but something is dying. Something dies in you when you take money you are not licensed to take.
  4. Iniquity ultimately ruins destiny.
    Reuben had no stand on earth because of sin (Genesis 49:1-4).
    What is my counsel? Don’t allow sin to kill your great future. Resist the lifestyle of iniquity by all means.

Remember this: A person’s mentality is corrupted when iniquity is permitted.


  1. Make up your mind to resist sin at all cost.
  2. Always ask God for the grace to live right.

PRAYER: O LORD, I ask for the grace to live in uprightness always in Jesus’ Name.

DAILY READING: Psalm 37-39

AMAZING FACT: Babies’ brains grow rapidly. A 2-year-old baby will have an 80% fully grown brain. This rapid development is why paying close attention to your child’s development in the early years is very critical to their ability as an adult.

PROPHETIC WORD (DECLARATION): Your life and destiny shall not be ruined by iniquity in Jesus’ Name. Receive the grace to live upright in Jesus’ Name.
