Topic: The Father’s Yearning
Today Saturday January 13, 2018
Text: Jeremiah 3:1-12

DCLM Daily Manna January 13 2018 KEY VERSE: “Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the LORD; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith the LORD, and I will not keep anger for ever” (Jeremiah 3:12).

No matter how pained, hurt and disappointed a father may be over the misdeed of his child, there is always a longing in his heart to have the child back to his love. True, he may take some steps to discipline the child; but he has just one purpose for doing this: to have the child realise his wrong, repent and ask for his father’s forgiveness. A real father is ever so ready to forgive and reinstate a truly repentant child. – DCLM Daily Manna January 13 2018

In the passage under consideration is God’s gracious invitation to the children of Israel to repent and return to Him. The children of Israel had consistently sinned and rebelled against God, provoking Him with innumerable abominations in spite of His love for them and the many wonders He had done for them. He had, in the previous chapter, reproved them for their sins and warned of the great punishment for their apostasy. They rightly deserved to be punished and abandoned by God.

But here, He pleads with them to return to Him in repentance. This shows that God delights more in showing mercy and forgiveness than in bringing punishment and judgment on sinners and backsliders. The good news is, no matter how far and deep you have gone in sin and backsliding, God is willing to forgive if you are penitent. Do not allow the gravity of your sins to drive you further away from Him. Yes, God hates sin and rebellion and will surely punish the sinner but He is willing to forgive if you truly repent of your sin, confess and forsake them and receive Jesus as Lord and Saviour.

DCLM Daily Manna January 13 2018 Thought for the day: God’s mercy rejoices over His judgment.

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 25 September 2018 - Prayer, The Master Key

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 25 September 2018 – Prayer, The Master Key by Pastor Kumuyi

Topic: Prayer, The Master Key

Key Verse: “Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full“ (John 16:24)

MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 25 September 2018

The Bible says a lot about prayers and people who prayed. Abraham prayed and so did Jacob. Many people prayed in the Bible and they received answers to their prayers. The Bible even detailed notable prayers like that of Solomon at the dedication of the temple or the quick one that David prayed to God to turn the counsel of Ahitophel to foolishness. Women, like Hannah, prayed too and received miracle children. Even unbelievers like the sailors in Jonah’s day knew how to pray. Prayer is the believer’s heart-cry to the Almighty.

Jesus also prayed. The passage above shows us the master key Jesus gave His disciples. Four times, He told them to ask again and again from the Father so that their joy would be full. He then took them to the school of prayer. He lectured them on the why, what and how of prayer. Prayer must be in His name to be answered. He also taught them to be steadfast in prayer. The world is evil and troublous times are inescapable for the saints. But when such times come, we should pray because He has overcome for us already.

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 25 September 2018 – Prayer, The Master Key by Pastor Kumuyi

The Church needs the master key of prayer today more than any other time. The key will open any door for the Church, families and the individual. Societal pressures are snuffing prayer times out of the daily schedules of many people. But how can you open doors of success if you abandon the passkey? There is an urgent call to prayer today for all and sundry. You must join them and use the key to make yourself relevant in time and eternity by opening every door blocking your progress. Remember God heareth not the sinners. He desires that sinners first pray for their salvation before He begins to add other blessings to them.

Thought For The Day: Prayer is the master key that opens all locked doors.

Kenneth Copeland Daily Devotional 25th September 2018 – Move Closer Every Day

Memorize: I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. – John 15:5

Abiding in Jesus isn’t something that comes automatically to any believer. It’s a lifestyle that involves discipline and effort.

We have to choose to give ourselves to our union with Him, to give Him first place where our attention is concerned. If we want to grow spiritually, if we want to walk in power and in fellowship with the Lord, we’ll have to spend the time it takes to know Him.

Kenneth Copeland Daily Devotional 25th September 2018 – Move Closer Every Day

That’s not something we can do for a while and then forget about either. We must continue in it every day. For the moment we stop moving closer to Jesus, we always start drifting away.

You see, here in this natural world you’re surrounded by ungodliness. You live in a body that is totally natural. Unless you purposely counter that with daily prayer and time in the Word, your body and your mind will simply give in to the pressures around you and go the way of the world. Kenneth Copeland Daily Devotional 25th September 2018 Kenneth Copeland Daily Devotional 25th September 2018

Right now, make a decision to give yourself to the things of God. Focus your attention on the Lord. Surround yourself with His Word. Listen to preaching and teaching tapes while you’re getting dressed, driving to work, preparing dinner, working on your car, exercising, cleaning house and when you go to bed. Listen to the Word of God anytime, anywhere! Kenneth Copeland Daily Devotional

Abide in Him today.
