DCLM Daily Manna 11 August 2018 Devotional – God Dwells With His People

Published

DCLM Daily Manna 11 August 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi

Topic: God Dwells With His People

SCRIPTURE: Exodus 25:1-22

KEY VERSE: “And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them”
(Exodus 25:8).

MESSAGE: From creation, God had desired to dwell and have fellowship with man. In the Garden of Eden, He would come down to commune with Adam. It was such a wonderful, blissful relationship until Satan struck and brought it to an abrupt end.

In our text, God commanded Moses to take offerings from the children of Israel to build Him a sanctuary so that He could dwell among them. All the instruments to be made were given in specific details “according to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle…” (verse 9). The offerings included gold, silver, brass, blue, purple and so on. Items to be made were an ark, a mercy seat, two cherubims with hands outstretched over the mercy seat, a table for showbread and candle holders among others. This commandment was obeyed and the sanctuary built. Hundreds of years later, Solomon built a great temple for God’s habitation in Jerusalem.

Today, under the New Covenant, God no longer dwells in temples made by men. He dwells in His people (2 Corinthians 6:16). With the Bible in a believer’s hand and the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit, great responsibilities have been placed on him to serve God in truth and spirit. Unfortunately, many believers are oblivious of the great privileges they have. The presence of God means power, peace, joy and victory. This makes us “more than conquerors”.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Every redeemed Christian must operate in the invincible power of his Redeemer.

DAILY BIBLE READING: Jeremiah 14-17

Read: RCCG 66th Annual Convention 2018 Day 4 (Live Broadcast)

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 13 December 2018 - Shun Inordinate Ambition

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 13 December 2018 – Shun Inordinate Ambition written by Pastor Kumuyi

TOPIC: Shun Inordinate Ambition

TEXT: MARK 9:30-37

KEY VERSE: “And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all”  – (Mark 9:35).

MESSAGE: It is truism that “pride goes before a fall”. The Christian life is filled with various paradoxes such as ‘the way up is down’, ‘the way to live is to die’, and ‘the way to receive is to give’. The uniform teaching of the word of God is against self-seeking, self-projection, self-exaltation, inordinate ambition and pride of life.

The projection of self in every endeavour describes what sin itself is: Selfishness In Nature. No doubt, God is interested in our progress, success, breakthrough and advancement. He says, “we shall be the head and not the tail, above only and not beneath”, that “whatsoever we do shall prosper”, and many more! However, our motives, modes and methods of actualising this are of great concern to God.

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 13 December 2018 – Shun Inordinate Ambition

In the world today, people seek a place of prominence in the workplace and the neighbourhood. In several instances, they take steps that are ungodly to attain the desired position, thereby losing the presence and favour of God. This reminds us of a certain young man who coveted the position of his boss and felt that the boss had stayed too long there and must give way to him. He travelled to the village and mentioned it before his fetish father. His father promised to look into the case. Back in the place of work the following week, his boss just got to his office in the morning, slumped and died. His father called him and told him he had “finished” the work. What a world!

Bribing our way to success, cutting corners to reach the top and defying all Christian ethics including using undue influence popularly called “long leg”, run contrary to God’s word. His word, way and time are the best in achieving the desired best for our lives. DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 13 December 2018

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Making haste outside God’s plan attracts His displeasure.

DAILY BIBLE READING: Acts 24-26

DCLM Daily Manna 12 December 2018 – A Dependable Intercessor written by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

TOPIC: A Dependable Intercessor

TEXT: NUMBERS 16:41-50

KEY VERSE: “And he stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed”  – (Numbers 16:48).

DCLM Daily Manna 12 December 2018 MESSAGE:

God, in his infinite wisdom, gave the power of attorney to men who would be able to stand in His presence to plead on behalf of those who are worthy of punishment and death. No doubt, sin and murmuring are extremely evil before God. Before Him, sins attract fatal penalty. Sin, wherever it is committed and by whosoever, does not go unnoticed by the all-seeing eyes of God. Every action of man attracts a recompense of reward, either good or bad.

In our text, Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron, their leaders. This attracted God’s attention and invited His reprimand. God rose to punish the people with a deadly plague. Christians must learn this big lesson and take caution! Murmuring against leaders is extremely evil before God. “Who art thou that judgest another man’s servant? To his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand” (Romans 14:4). DCLM Daily Manna 12 December 2018

Moses summoned Aaron to quickly take steps to stand between the breach for the people and appease God on their behalf. Aaron did this and God was entreated for the people. Vengeance belongs to God. In life, people will offend us, deliberately hurt us and even sin against God. Like Moses did not call for judgment over this people, we should not call for fire upon them, neither should we wait expectantly for God’s judgment over them nor rejoice when they are visited by one calamity or the other. Rather, we are expected to sincerely and passionately intercede for such people as did Moses and Aaron. As God promptly regarded the sacrifice of Moses and Aaron, there is the assurance that God will refrain from His judgment and spare the penitent sinner. You too can be a dependable intercessor.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: A forgiving spirit and an intercessory heart are greatly prized before God.
