DCLM Daily Manna 6 December 2018 – A Humble Faith by Pastor Kumuyi

Topic: A Humble Faith

Text: LUKE 7:1-10

KEY VERSE: “Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof”
(Luke 7:6).

DCLM Daily Manna 6 December 2018 – A Humble Faith  MESSAGE:

Humility, as opposed to pride and arrogance, has the potential of opening closed doors. The humble in heart always esteems the other better than himself. Some nations have had to fight needless protracted wars because their leaders held on to vain pride while their people perished in unnecessary and avoidable conflicts.

Our text deals with the issue of a centurion’s servant’s sickness. He was a Roman army officer and ordinarily, he would not have bothered about his servant’s sickness. But he took the matter to Jesus, not as a last resort but because he believed Jesus came from God. He had recognised the Jews as carriers of God’s redemption message and had built a Synagogue for them. His faith and humility was particularly amazing because of his Gentile background, having not been brought up to know the living and true God. He made it clear. ‘I am not worthy…’

As a military commander, the centurion knew that Jesus, by far a greater Commander than himself, did not need to come to his house for the servant to be healed just the same way he (a mere military commander) did not need to be present, for his orders to be carried out. Thus, he said to Jesus, ‘Speak the word only’. Immediately, Jesus spoke the word and the servant was healed. DCLM Daily Manna 6 December 2018 – A Humble Faith

Many people have lost the opportunity of receiving their healing and deliverance at various church programmes because of lack of simple faith and a humble disposition. If, today, such people could sincerely show humility and exercise an unwavering faith in God’s word, they will receive their much needed miracles. You can do so today.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Before honour is humility.

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 18 December 2018 – Just Recompense written by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

TOPIC: Just Recompense

TEXT: ISAIAH 24:1-23

KEY VERSE: “The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant”  – (Isaiah 24:5).

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 18 December 2018 MESSAGE: God is just. He rewards piety, faithfulness, dedication, commitment and righteousness. In His faithfulness, He does not spare the unrepentant sinner, the unrighteous, the wicked and all who repay kindness with evil and wickedness.

God’s indignation and fearful judgment is always towards the ungrateful: the rich, poor, freemen, bondmen, educated, illiterate, religious and irreligious “because they have transgressed the laws, changed ordinance and broken the everlasting covenant”. Every unrighteousness is sin. God is not a respecter of person or nation. “The wicked shall be turned into hell; and all the nations that forget God” (Psalms 9:17).

God’s severe judgment is hanging on the neck of all who defy Him in spite of His goodness, mercies and loving kindness to them. Surely, He is good to all and in His magnanimity, He has endowed both man and land with rich deposit of His goodness. All those who therefore dare God and use what He has given to them – material wealth, mineral resources, intellect, wisdom, knowledge, positions – in ways that desecrate His name and promote ungodliness are courting His fierce judgment.

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 18 December 2018 – Just Recompense written by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

Every human being is a free moral agent. God gave all liberty to use whatever He has given to us, including our life, in the way we choose. Our response to God’s unquantifiable kindness will determine the kind of reward we should expect from Him now and in eternity. However, God’s anger and indignation can be avoided by turning from all wicked ways, repenting from all known sins and turning to God through Jesus Christ.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: What a man decides ultimately determines his destiny.

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 17 December 2018 – The Power of Faith by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

TOPIC: The Power Of Faith

TEXT: MARK 9:14-29

KEY VERSE: “Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth”
(Mark 9:23).

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 17 December 2018 MESSAGE:

A small child named Thomas A. Edison came home with a letter from school. The content of the letter was: “Your son is mentally deficient; we cannot let him attend our school anymore. He is expelled”. Edison’s mother’s eyes welled with tears as she said aloud positively, “Your son is a genius. This school is too small for him and doesn’t have good enough teachers to train him…” The mother took up the tutoring of Thomas effectively and successfully until she fell ill and passed on. Many years after Edison’s mother died, he became one of the greatest inventors of the century. Edison was a mentally deficient child, whose mother turned him into the genius of the century. Faith produces something from nothing. DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 17 December 2018

In our passage, Jesus upbraided His disciples for their inability to heal an epileptic child brought to them. He described their failure as resulting from their lack of faith. Faith in God’s promises and faithfulness changes situations and circumstances.

Nothing is impossible for a man or woman of faith. Whoever exercises faith always dwells in the realm of the supernatural. He visualises God’s unlimited supply, unquestionable authority over circumstances, unrestrained power over nature and His control over all issues. If prayer is the “staff” with which a Christian walks with God, then faith is the “key” to open God’s treasure-store.

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 17 December 2018 – The Power of Faith written by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

Without faith, we cannot attain to His presence or obtain anything from Him. How rich are you in faith? Build up your faith and experience victory and rest on all sides.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Through faith, you can both save yourself and others.
