DCLM Daily Manna 12 July 2018 Devotional – What Do You Treasure?

DCLM Daily Manna 12 July 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi

TOPIC: What Do You Treasure?

BIBLE TEXT: Matthew 13:44-52

KEY VERSE: “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field” (Matthew 13:44).

MESSAGE: The quantum and quality of resources a person invests in his quest for a prize determines how he values the goal. If the goal is a priceless treasure, he pumps in all his time, energy, skill, money and other materials needed to achieve his ambition. Less cherished purpose does not merit much attention.

The lessons from the parable in the text teach us that the vicarious death of Jesus for the salvation of mankind is an investment which portrays Him as a wise spiritual Entrepreneur desirous of harvesting souls in line with the promise of the Father (PSALMS 2:8). This lesson is similar to a corn of wheat in John 12:24, which cannot bring forth fruit unless it invests itself by being sown in the ground dies, germinates, grows, and buds. Life in the Kingdom is all about sacrifice to “seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33).

Genuine believers follow the footsteps of Jesus Christ by investing their resources in Kingdom work. There is reward beyond what the world offers. Which is better? The short-lived reward from service to mortal man or the everlasting reward God gives to those who spend for the furtherance of the gospel? The choice is yours to make.

Even so, a saint renders services to Christ not for any tangible or intangible rewards. He serves Him as a token of appreciation for his salvation and as an acknowledgement of being privileged to be a witness for Christ: an unconditional service to the Master in the instinctive response by he who has profited from Christ’s reservoir of grace.

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.

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.

DCLM Daily Manna 24th September 2018 Devotional by Pastor Kumuyi

Topic: Resources For The Journey

TEXT: Exodus 23:20-33

KEY VERSE: “And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee”
(Exodus 23:25).

DCLM Daily Manna 24th September 2018 Devotional Message:

It is expected of travellers to make good preparations for their journeys. Failure to prepare and plan ahead could be very costly. Good parents make adequate preparations for their children who are to travel. Apart from getting their luggage ready, they also contact friends and known individuals who can be of help. They ensure adequate resources for the success of the trip are provided.

Israel was on a journey from Egypt to Canaan and God, as a good Father, made adequate provisions for the journey. He knew Israel would be confronted with challenging and difficult terrains in the wilderness. He, therefore, sent His angel to lead the way and instructed the Israelites on how to maintain constant fellowship with this guide. The text for today contains specific promises of God for travellers. Ten times, God promised “I will”. He promised to guide the Israelites, be an enemy to their enemies, cut off their enemies, take sicknesses away from them and fulfil their days. What a faithful God He is!

Like Israel in the wilderness, believers are also on a journey to the Promised Land. God has given us enough promises to help us overcome the enemy every day of our pilgrimage.

Dear reader, God has provided for your needs today. He thought ahead of your needs and has sent His word to take care of you. His guiding angel is available to lead, protect and assist you in every area of your life, if you follow His instruction.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God’s provisions far exceed man’s petitions.
