DCLM Daily Manna 14 March 2018 Devotional by Pastor Kumuyi

Topic: Idols Are Vain

Text: Jeremiah 10:1-16 (KJV)

Key Verse: “They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good” (Jeremiah 10:5).

Message: Hideyoshi, a Japanese warlord who ruled over Japan in the late 1500s, commissioned a colossal statue of Buddha for a shrine in Kyoto. It took 50,000 men five years to build, but the work had scarcely been completed when the earthquake of 1596 brought the roof of the shrine crashing down and wrecked the statue. In a rage, Hideyoshi shot an arrow at the fallen colossus. “I put you here at the great expense,” he shouted, “and you can’t even look after your own temple.” DCLM Daily Manna 14 March 2018

Israel had fallen below ground zero on the shore of human depravity. They stoop so low to worship an idol made of wood, silver and gold, which can neither move nor talk. Jeremiah described the act as despicable and foolish. He condemned their state of moral decadence and concluded by extolling the greatness of our incomparable God, the Everlasting King Who makes the earth to tremble.

Deeper Life Daily Manna 13 March 2018 Devotional – Control Your Tongue

Idolatry is not only about worshipping images and deities which our ancestors passed down through the ages. It can occur when we value money, possession, people, or even ourselves above God. The soccer stadiums are always full to capacity by people who want to cheer their teams to victory during the league games and World Cup finals. Worldly concerts and performances in the theatres are filled to capacity while church attendance continues to decline because man has chosen to give these events priority above God.

Like Hideyoshi, our idols will collapse one day and their ruin will be very great. It’s now time to reflect on the choices we make in life, the things we place our priorities upon, to discover if we have drifted away from the true God. This will make us to reorder our priorities and be free from the idols we created. DCLM Daily Manna 14 March 2018

Thought For The Day: Idolatry does not reduce God; it humiliates us.

Bible Reading in a Year: Deuteronomy 8-10

DCLM Daily Manna 14 March 2018 was written by Pastor W.F Kumuyi; is the founder and General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church situated at KM 42 on the busy Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Nigeria.

Hope you are blessed today.

Seeds of Destiny 20 December 2018 – The Inverse Relationship Between Sin And Prayer written by Pastor Paul Enenche.

SEEDS OF DESTINY WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2018

SCRIPTURE: After this manner, therefore, pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. Matthew 6:9-12.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When you protect yourself from sin, you preserve your relationship with God.

The lifestyle of prayer and the life of sin are diametrically opposed, mutually exclusive, inversely proportional and absolutely antithetical to each other. That is why prayer cannot be effective in the life of a Christian who is living in sin. One of the major objectives of sin is the attack on a person’s relationship with God. The decision to sin is a decision against prayer and the decision to pray is a decision against sin. Seeds of Destiny 20 December 2018

Therefore, it is important that sin be dealt with first before prayer becomes effective.

Now, how does sin affect prayer life?
Prayer keeps people from sin and sin keeps people from praying. Those who pray more sin less and those who pray less sin more. The life of prayer and the life of sin are mutually exclusive and diametrically opposed; they do not exist together. The flow of prayer becomes a struggle when sin is involved.

Today’s Seeds of Destiny 20 December 2018 by Dr. Paul Enenche

Sin broke Adam’s relationship with his Creator. Adam was kicked out of the Garden on the platform of sin.

The greatest loss on earth is not the loss of money, job or a relationship but the loss of the relationship between man and his Maker; that is an eternal loss, if it is not recovered.

Beloved, when you protect yourself from sin, you preserve your relationship with God. It is your choice to keep yourself with God always. Shun every appearance of sin in your life; and if you have already fallen into sin, rise up, confess your sin, repent of your sin and sin no more. Decide to pray always in order to remain in God’s Presence.

REMEMBER THIS: When you protect yourself from sin, you preserve your relationship with God.

ASSIGNMENTS (Seeds of Destiny 20 December 2018):

1. Pray without ceasing
2. Distance yourself from every wrong relationship or association that may lead you into sin and hinder your prayer life.

PRAYER: O Lord, I ask that You keep me in Your Presence always. Keep me away from every hindrance and distraction, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: UNDERSTANDING PRAYER

QUOTE: Do not just do the convenient; do the expedient, even when it is not convenient. Culled from PRINCIPLES AND POWER OF PRAYER by Dr. Paul Enenche

DAILY READING: 1 Chronicles 28:1 to 29:30, Romans 5:6 to 21, Psalm 15:1 to 5, Proverbs 19:18 to 19.

AMAZING FACT: Your eyes can detect 10 million different colours.

Kenneth Copeland 18 December 2018 Devotional – Extremely Blessed written by Gloria Copeland

Memorize: A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it: whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth. – Proverbs 17:8

If I could give you a gift this Christmas, the Word is what I’d give you. I’d rather give it to you than a check for a million dollars. Because you can run through a million dollars real quick, but the truth of God’s Word never quits—and it will get you out of situations a million dollars can’t get you out of. Kenneth Copeland 18 December 2018 Devotional

Ken and I are just ordinary people. But when we latched on to God’s Word, we latched on to something out of the ordinary, something that changed our lives. Every area of our lives.

Nothing that’s happened to us has happened because of us. It’s happened because of God’s Word. In fact, I don’t even have to know you to promise you this: If you’ll give God’s Word your full attention—and not be afraid of His will for your life—you’re going to be happier and more prosperous than anything you could ever dream up.

Today’s Kenneth Copeland 18 December 2018 Devotional – Extremely Blessed

Of course, if you do that, people may call you extreme. They say that about us all the time. But we don’t mind. We are extreme. And if you’ll set your faith on the Word of God, you can be extreme too. Extremely well. Extremely prosperous. And extremely blessed. Merry Christmas!
