Read Today ODM Online Daily Manna Devotional for Tuesday 4th May 2021 written by Bishop Chris Kwakpovwe.
TOPIC: THOMAS EDISON: YOU CAN START ALL OVER AGAIN
Scriptures: 1 Samuel 30: 1-19
Thomas Alva Edison (11/02/1847 – 18/10/1931) was a great American who you have probably heard of or read something about. The Holy Ghost wants to use his life to speak to you today! He has been described as America’s greatest inventor and was taught how to read, write, and do arithmetic by his mother who was a teacher.
Many inventions were credited to his name – prominent among them were the phonograph, motion picture camera and electric bulb. He owned many franchises and founded 14 companies including General Electric, which is still one of the largest, publicly traded companies in the world today. But as great as this man was, he ran into great turbulence sometime in his lifetime.

On the 10th day of December in 1914, 10 buildings of his plant in West Orange, New Jersey were engulfed in flames and razed down completely. Edison said to Charles, his 24 year-old son then, “Go get your mother and all her friends. They’ll never see a fire like this again…. we’ve just got rid of a lot of rubbish.” At that time, Edison was 67. He told a local newspaper, “Although I am 67 years old, I’ll start all over again tomorrow.” The following morning, the man began to build the factory again without laying off any of his staff.
In that fire incident, the man lost some 919,788 US dollars, an equivalent of 50 million dollars today. History records that in the following year, Edison made a profit of about 10 million dollars. There is a saying that the downfall of a man is not the end of his life. When you are down, it does not mean you are out. That nullifies the philosophy of “down and out.” Being down does not mean you are out!
No matter how you past has been, NEVER QUIT! When you go through the turmoil and challenges of life, do not go into depression or despair, rather smile through the chaos because a greater you is about to emerge. Don’t allow hard times take the better part of you, rather use that period to unleash your inner strength and bring to the fore that rare gift of being able to start all over again.
King David in today’s Bible reading lost virtually everything to the marauding Amalekites. The city of Ziklag had been burnt down, the women/wives of David and his subjects had been taken captive, their sons and daughters (children) were in the custody of the enemy. Weeping didn’t solve the problem; courage however did.
Close with this: You have to fight through some bad days to earn the best days of your life. Yes! MAKE THAT YOUR PHILOSOPHY! David bounced back, and so did everyone! You are the next! Hold on and hold out!
