DCLM DAILY MANNA 16TH JANUARY 2021 SATURDAY DEVOTIONAL

Sometimes, we have a misguided mental picture of who God is and what He must do for us. We speak as if He were a man, duty-bound to answer all our prayers the way we expect. Some people even think that they are at liberty to claim whatever they name. And when God does not meet their expectations, they become disappointed, disturbed and might even begin to blaspheme Him.

This was the experience of the multitude that had gathered for the feast of Passover on this eventful final week of Christ’s public ministry on earth. The Jews had come to Jerusalem from all over the world for the festival. And without doubt, many had heard of Jesus, and believed that He was the expected Messiah. His arrival in Jerusalem proved to be an added colour to the Passover of that year.

At His command, His disciples had brought a colt. As He rode on this meek animal, the crowd went into frenzied and wild celebration, strewing His path with their garments and tree branches. They knew this was the King to come and they began to praise the King of the kingdom of David, and to shout, “Hosanna” (meaning, save us now); “blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord”.

Asking to be saved could have been their greatest prayer, had they not misplaced their priorities and expectations. But few days later, this same crowd would, in a wild mood swing, shout, “Crucify him”. Many expect instant gratification and blessing from the Lord. They pray as if to twist the hand of God to grant their requests. They want to be saved from sickness and disease, poverty and pain, but they overlook the greatest need of their lives: to be saved from their sins.

Forgiveness from sin brings salvation and this is what grants us access to God to ask for other needs of life.

Thought For Today: Misplaced priorities result in disappointments in prayer.

DCLM Daily Manna Today 4th March 2021 Devotional – Set Apart For God

You are reading Today’s DCLM Daily Manna Thursday 4th March 2021 Devotional written by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi. May the Lord bless you and prosper you now and always.

TOPIC: SET APART FOR GOD

Key Verse: “But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him” (Psalm 4:3).

BIBLE TEXT: PSALM 4:1-8

1 Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness!
You have relieved me in my distress;
[b]Have mercy on me, and hear my prayer.

2 How long, O you sons of men,
Will you turn my glory to shame?
How long will you love worthlessness
And seek falsehood? Selah
3 But know that the Lord has [c]set apart for Himself him who is godly;
The Lord will hear when I call to Him.

4 Be[d] angry, and do not sin.
Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still. Selah
5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness,
And put your trust in the Lord.

6 There are many who say,
“Who will show us any good?”
Lord, lift up the light of Your countenance upon us.
7 You have put gladness in my heart,
More than in the season that their grain and wine increased.
8 I will both lie down in peace, and sleep;
For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.

Today’s Message: DCLM Daily Manna Today 4th March 2021 Devotional

The godly is a cherished and priceless possession of the Lord. He searches the earth for such a soul; and when discovered, is set apart for His service and fellowship. A Christian writer noted that “knowing and loving God is our greatest privilege and being known and loved is God’s greatest pleasure”. Indeed, God wants unbroken fellowship with His chosen children, like Adam and Eve, whom He set apart in the Garden of Eden for constant communion.

The godly must maintain a perpetual attitude of fellowship with God for this is the heartbeat of the Almighty and His greatest expectation. We must develop the attitude of constant conversation with our heavenly Father. This we do by praying “without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17). We must worship Him with pure heart and motive; honour Him and meditate upon His word regularly as a means of obedience and submission to do His will. God shares His secrets with the godly. He revealed His redemptive plan for Israel to Abraham who committed himself to passing his faith down to his posterity (Genesis 18:19).

Indeed, “The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant” (Psalm 25:14). Believers should cultivate the enviable attitude of constant conversation with God through prayer. With an acceptable life, he or she is sure to receive manifold portions from Him and an assurance of a place in His kingdom.

Thought for Today: Friendship with God is reserved for those who reverence Him.
