DCLM Daily Manna 12 August 2018 Devotional - Guard Your Salvation Jealously

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

Topic: Guard Your Salvation Jealously

TEXT: GENESIS 25:27-34

KEY VERSE: “And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?”
(Genesis 25:32).

MESSAGE: When King Ahab coveted Naboth’s vineyard and requested to take it, Naboth declined, saying: “The LORD forbid it me, that I should give the inheritance of my fathers unto thee” (1 Kings 21:1-3). Though he eventually lost his life through Jezebel’s plot, it was a noble act of bravery and protection of his inheritance.

Isaac’s family was marred by ungodly preferences – Isaac loved Esau and Rebekah preferred Jacob. The children on their own did not help matters either, as the struggle for headship started from the womb. Esau’s request for pottage from his brother would have been uneventful were it not for this deep-seated rivalry. So, Jacob demanded for Esau’s birthright as an exchange for the food. Surprisingly, Esau acceded to the request and even swore to it. He got the food but lost the birthright. Today, Satan still makes demands on people, including believers, to surrender their “birthright” to him in exchange for some kind of “pottage of lentils” in the form of position, wealth or fame.

The salvation from sin that Christ brought is the greatest gift ever given by God to man. As a believer, rejoice that your name is written in heaven. Paul counted all things “but dung”, and all his sufferings as “light affliction”, because he understood what salvation meant. He was ready to pay any price to keep it.

The sad story of Esau should be an eye-opener to every heaven-bound citizen to preserve his “birthright” through watchfulness, constant prayer and obedience to the counsel of God.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Keep your “birthright” with all diligence.

DAILY BIBLE READING: Jeremiah 18-22

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.
