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 27th September 2018 – The Holy Spirit: The Sponsor of Righteousness

SOD THURSDAY 27TH SEPTEMBER, 2018

SCRIPTURE: Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Mathew 5:14-16

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The Holy Ghost is the secret of upright living.

Character is of capital value in life and destiny. One’s character determines the degree of influence one can command in one’s generation.

A Christian is meant to be a standard bearer, a road pointer, or a pace-setter for his or her generation. We were designed by God to show the rest of the world how to live. We are meant to colonize the world in excellence by our standards. The reason why our world is degenerating today is because most Christians do not operate by set Divine standards. Seeds of Destiny 27th September 2018

Now, it is very important to know that the Holy Ghost is the secret of upright living. The question is, how does the Holy Spirit help us to maintain an upright character in a degenerating world?

The Holy Ghost is the sponsor of righteousness (Romans 14:17). The Holy Ghost gives you peace, and supplies you joy and righteousness. Seeds of Destiny 27th September 2018

So, anyone who knows how to fellowship with the Holy Spirit by praying in tongues abundantly is a person whose character will be continuously moulded, enhanced and refined.
The Holy Spirit opens our eyes to insights from Scripture that can kill any unholy nature in us.

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of liberty and transformation (2 Corinthians 3:17). That is, where the Spirit of the Lord is, you are not permitted to be bound by sin. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, the bondage of sin is broken.

By the power of the Holy Ghost, I decree that the siege of every negative habit over your life is broken in Jesus’ Name.

Remember this: The Holy Ghost is the secret of upright living.

ASSIGNMENTS Seeds of Destiny 27th September 2018:
1. Pray in the Holy Ghost abundantly and consistently.
2. Avoid anything that will defile your conscience.

PRAYER: O LORD, fill me with the Power of the Holy Spirit. Help me to maintain a positive character and make me a standard bearer in my generation, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: The strength of your destiny is affected by the strength of your character. Culled from WHO ARE YOU? by Dr Paul Enenche.

Seeds of Destiny 26th September 2018 – The Power that enforces change by Pastor Paul Enenche

SOD WEDNESDAY 26TH SEPTEMBER, 2018

SCRIPTURE: And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested. 1 Chronicles 4:10

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: What you do not resist will persist.

It has been established that change, like every other phenomenon, is brought about by force. There is a force behind every change; nothing changes on its own. Every change experienced in life is powered by a force. Situations change when people decide to enforce a change. Seeds of Destiny 26th September 2018 – The Power that enforces change

That is why Jabez, from our anchor Scripture, did not just sit down and wait for things to change in his life. His life and situation could not have changed if he did nothing about them.
I once heard God’s servant, Bishop David Oyedepo say, ‘What you don’t want, you don’t watch.’ I can imagine Jabez say, ‘I don’t want this miserable life and I will not continue to watch it. I want the situations of my life to change so I have to go to God and place a demand for a drastic change.’

Seeds of Destiny 26th September 2018 – The Power that enforces change

Please note this: what you do not resist will persist; whatever you do not resist will remain.

What Jabez did was what Jacob also decided to do. When Jacob saw the situation of his life, he decided to pray about it. He also determined to fight it out (Genesis 32:24). Seeds of Destiny 26th September 2018

Beloved, you need a fighter spirit to change your destiny. Destiny changes when responsibility for change is accepted. When you make up your mind for change to occur, when you make up your mind to pray about it, then the change must happen.

Remember this: What you do not resist will persist.

ASSIGNMENT(S):
1. Accept the responsibility of effecting changes in the relevant areas of your life.
2. Take your burdens to the Lord in prayer.
3. Never quit the fight for your fulfilment in life and destiny.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: THE PRAYER OF JABEZ 1

PRAYER: Lord, I cast my cares upon You. I refuse to be established in the status quo. Cause things to turn around in my favour, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

DAILY READING: Isaiah 48:12 to 50:11, Ephesians 4:17 to 32, Psalm 69:1 to 18, Proverbs 24:5 to 6.
