MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna 8 April 2019 – Small But Great

It is an undisputable fact that God can create something from nothing and can bring out the visible from the invisible. Even man who is the crown of the creation of God was made from ordinary dust of the earth. This attests to the omnipotent nature of our Almighty and all-wise Creator. DCLM Daily Manna 8 April 2019

The passage today, though merely lists the cities of Judah and their borders, yet, is quite instructive. There stands out a number of lessons for believers to learn. On this list, we might wonder why Bethlehem, which afterwards became the city of David was not mentioned, even when it was to be destined to be the birth place of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. That city, which at best, was but little among the thousands of Judah, was omitted as it was not to be accounted one of the cities.

A biblical prophecy declared it several hundreds of years before the birth of Christ that Bethlehem Ephratah, though it be little among thousands of Judah, yet, out of it would come forth unto us He that would be Ruler in Israel, “whose goings forth have been from old, from everlasting” (Micah 5:2). This shows that the connection between Christ and Bethlehem was what brought our greatness for that hitherto insignificant land.

In the same vein, the coming of Jesus in the life of an individual will transform such a person from the state of mediocre to a hero, from failure to success, from nothingness to appointments, from indigence to affluence, from insignificance to greatness and from sinfulness to saintliness.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Christ brightens the corner where we are.

DAILY BIBLE READING: Acts 1-2

DCLM Daily Manna 8th July 2020 Devotional – God’s Light In Man by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

TODAY’S TOPIC: GOD’S LIGHT IN MAN

TEXT: Proverbs 20:16-30
16. Take his garment that is surety for a stranger; and take a pledge of him for a strange woman.

17. Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.

18. Every purpose is established by counsel; and with good advice make war.

19. He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets; therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips.

20. Whoso curseth his father or his mother, his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness.

21. An inheritance may be gotten hastily at the beginning; but the end thereof shall not be blessed.

22. Say not thou, I will recompense evil; but wait on the LORD, and he shall save thee.

23. Divers weights are an abomination unto the LORD; and a false balance is not good.

24. Man’s goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?

25. It is a snare to the man who devoureth that which is holy, and after vows to make enquiry.

26. A wise king scattereth the wicked, and bringeth the wheel over them.

27. The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.

28. Mercy and truth preserve the king; and his throne is upholden by mercy.

29. The glory of young men is their strength; and the beauty of old men is the gray head.

30. The blueness of a wound cleanseth away evil; so do stripes the inward parts of the belly.

KEY VERSE: “The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.” – (Proverbs 20:27)

MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna 8th July 2020 Devotional

A Christian preacher once said that the Spirit of God in a true Christian is a bulb in His presence. It is full of light anywhere it is, chasing away darkness all around it.

There are sundry lessons in our text. It talks about our relationship and how to treat others. It also cautions us to respect our parents so that our lamps are not put out in obscure darkness. It further instructs us to avoid the get-rich-quick syndrome that has pervaded our society. It likewise enjoins us not to recompense evil but to wait on the Lord. There is also a warning about using “divers weights”. Cheating is an abomination in the sight of the Lord. It is established that only through the spirit, the candle of the Lord, can we hear and obey His precepts.

In modern-day terms, we can say the spirit of man is the bulb of the Lord. It gives illumination. When a bulb is turned on, darkness is dispelled. In the same way, when you become a new creature in Christ, your spirit is made alive unto God. When God dwells within you, communication with Him through your spirit is made possible.

Unfortunately, many believers today have become careless with their devotional lives. They hurry off to work every morning, thereby, having little or no time for God and His Word. DCLM Daily Manna 8th July 2020 Devotional

To sustain the presence of the Spirit of God, one must read, study and meditate on the word of God regularly. We must let God give us more light on the Scriptures and expound on their meaning until the Word becomes a living reality in our spirit. By so doing, we will brighten the corner where we are and illuminate the dark world.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Feed your spirit with the Word to keep the light burning.

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Kings 18-19
