DCLM Daily Manna 23 February 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi

Topic: Planted to Flourish

Bible Text: Psalm 92:1-15 – DCLM Daily Manna 23 February 2018

 Key Verse: “Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God” (Psalm 92:13).

Message: There are marked differences between weeds and plants. The most noticeable of these is the fact that weeds are free-growing whereas plants are planted and cultivated. Weeds are often invasive and attain rapid growth but are undesirable. Plants, on the other hand, are delicate and are painstakingly nurtured to bear desirable fruits or for their aesthetic, therapeutic or other values.DCLM Daily Manna 23 February 2018

This horticultural reality aptly illustrates the contrast between the unrighteous and the righteous. Today’s text highlights this contrast in a most graphic way.

DCLM Daily Manna 23 February 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi – Planted to Flourish

The ungodly are very much like weeds. They may spring up as rapidly as grass and flourish outwardly like summer flower, but “it is that they shall be destroyed forever.” In contrast, “The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.” The righteous may not attain the rapid growth of weeds but he grows gracefully, steadily and enduringly towards God like the palm tree. Like the cedar, they are stable, incorruptible and fruitful. The righteous is God’s tree planted on the best of soils – the house of the Lord – where he is nurtured on His rich counsel, care and comfort. No wonder he continues to bear fruit even in old age.

DCLM Daily Manna 23 February 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi – Planted to Flourish

Are you a weed or plant? On what soil is your life planted? Are you rooted in the vanities and wickedness of this world or in the rich soil of God’s grace and fellowship? If you are not yet planted on this rich soil of grace, get that done through repentance and faith in Christ. And if you are already “planted,” consecrate to God for more growth and fruitfulness.

Thought for the day: It doesn’t matter where else you flourish if it is not in the house of God.

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
