Daily Devotional 20 February 2018 by Steve Ogan - Reversing The Curses Placed on first born childrenREVERSING THE CURSES PLACED ON FIRST BORN CHILDREN IN THE BIBLE MONTH OF ADAR

Tuesday, 05 Adar, 5778 = Tuesday, February 20, 2018

“Let them curse, but bless thou: when they arise, let them be ashamed; but let thy servant rejoice” (Psalm 109:28).

Many firstborn children are suffering because of character flaws and the parental curses imposed on them for failing to meet up with expectations. Curses can be revoked at any time provided the conditions for such revocation are met by the persons concerned. Nevertheless, the curses imposed on firstborn sons and daughters can be best revoked in the Bible twelfth month of Adar.

Firstborn springs are the beginning of a man’s strength. They are the excellency of God’s dignity. They are the excellency of power and might. They are created to excel. They are born to fulfil a dominion mandate. This is why they are candidates for a double portion of a family’s inheritance. No father should die without revoking a curse placed on a firstborn. The best time to revoke a curse on a firstborn, whether self-imposed or imposed by somebody, is when the parental authority over any given firstborn is about to go to the world beyond. It was unfortunate that Jacob imposed a curse on his firstborn Reuben at a point he was supposed to proclaim a blessing on him.

“And Jacob called unto his sons, and said; Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days. Gather yourselves together, and hear, ye sons of Jacob; and hearken unto Israel your father. Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the Excellency of dignity, and the Excellency of power: Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father’s bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch” (Genesis 49:1-4).

One of the fundamental tasks Moses performed before his death was to reverse the curse Jacob had placed on Reuben in the first month of Nisan. In Deuteronomy 33:6 he said. “Let Reuben live and not die, nor let his men be few.”

KEY PRAYER FOCUS
1. REVERSE THE CURSES PLACED ON THE JEWISH FIRSTBORN NATION OF ISRAEL: “Because they met not the children of Israel with bread and with water, but hired Balaam against them, that he should curse them: howbeit our God turned the curse into a blessing” (Nehemiah 13:2).

2. DESTROY AND REVOKE EVIL PRONUNCIATIONS UTTERED ON FIRSTBORN CHILDREN: “For they are wholly given unto me from among the children of Israel; instead of such as open every womb, even instead of the firstborn of all the children of Israel, have I taken them unto me” (Numbers 18:16).

Billy Graham Daily Devotion 10 December 2018 – Steadfast Love

Memorize: Your steadfast love, O Lord, is as great as all the heavens . . .  —Psalm 36:5 (TLB)

Young people talk a lot about love. Most of their songs are about love. . . . “The supreme happiness of life,” Victor Hugo said long ago, “is the conviction that we are loved.” “Love is the first requirement for mental health,” declared Sigmund Freud. The Bible teaches that “God is love” and that God loves you. Billy Graham Daily Devotion 10 December 2018

To realize that is of paramount importance. Nothing else matters so much. And loving you, God has a wonderful plan for your life. Who else could plan and guide your life so well?

What is real love? Read Billy Graham’s answer.

Prayer for the day Billy Graham Daily Devotion 10 December 2018

In knowing I am loved by You, almighty God, my heart trusts You to guide me.

DCLM Daily Manna 10 December 2018 Devotional – The Kingdom In Focus

TOPIC: The Kingdom In Focus

TEXT: Romans 14:10-22

KEY VERSE: “For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost” – (Romans 14:17).

MESSAGEDCLM Daily Manna 10 December 2018 Devotional:

Have you got faith? “…Have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth” (Romans 14:22).

Martin Luther King Jr. once said ‘Never, never be afraid to do what is right, especially if the wellbeing of a person or animal is at stake; society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our souls when we look the other way’. The Christian church is uncompromising in its stand against all kinds of conduct opposed to scriptural standards.

Our text deals with issues that bother on the believer’s understanding of true Christlikeness, holiness, fruitfulness, doctrine and morals. This involves a sincere rebuking, correcting and evaluation of one another where necessary in love and humility and the exercise of church discipline on erring members and leaders.

DCLM Daily Manna 10 December 2018 Devotional – The Kingdom In Focus by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

Believers should refrain from judging one another. Christ our Lord is the One who has the right to judge. We must avoid anything that constitutes a stumbling block to fellow believers especially the weak ones. As believers, whether we are strong or weak, we must realise that true liberty does not lie in the exercise of that liberty if it will disrupt the peace of the body of Christ, knowing that the highest good is only attained in its use to edify the church.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Use not your liberty as a cloak of maliciousness.

DAILY BIBLE READING: Romans 11-13
