DCLM Daily Manna 20 May 2019 – Mercy For The Contrite written by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

DATE: Monday, May 20, 2019

TOPIC: Mercy For The Contrite

TEXT: 1 Kings 21:17-29

KEY VERSE: “And it came to pass, when Ahab heard those words, that he rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his flesh, and fasted, and lay in sackcloth and went softly” – (1 Kings 21:27).

MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna 20 May 2019

One of the great attributes of the Almighty God is His bountiful mercies. The Bible describes Him as a God who forgives iniquity and a song writer says, His mercy is like a “boundless tide like the waters of the sea that covers every sin of man…” Man, no matter his atrocities, sins and wickedness can find and get pardon from God if he truly and sincerely repents.

The description of Ahab’s sin and wickedness in the text is such that made it look as though such a one could never get a reprieve from God. The Bible says that he was incomparable in his wickedness and that his evils exceeded those of his predecessors. He was a sin-addict and seemed to derive pleasure in perpetrating wickedness.

DCLM Daily Manna 20th May 2019

But when Elijah the prophet confronted him with the grim judgment of God hanging over him because of his sins, he sobered up. For the first time in his life, he humbled himself and expressed true sorrow and genuine repentance for a while. For this reason, God sent back Elijah to him commending him and aborting evils in his days.

This is an encouragement for all who may be weighed down by the heavy load of their sins today. Do you feel condemned by your sinful and wicked acts? Do you think you can never get pardon because of the extent you have gone in sin and wickedness?

Today’s DCLM Daily Manna 20 May 2019 – Mercy For The Contrite by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

Do you see God’s looming judgment and feel there is no hiding place? Be encouraged to know that you can find forgiveness and pardon in Christ. God hates sin and will certainly bring judgment on sinners but you can receive mercy and forgiveness, if you truly repent.

Like Ahab, you must humble yourself as you acknowledge your sinfulness and confess all your sins with a determination to break completely away from them. Take a step further to make right your ways with all those you have hurt with your sinful acts.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Mercy awaits all who truly repents.

DAILY BIBLE READING: Ruth 3 – 4

DCLM Daily Manna 27 June 2019 Devotional – The Right Fruit, written by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

TODAY’S TOPIC: The Right Fruit

TEXT: Jeremiah 24:1-10

KEY VERSE: “What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes” – (Isaiah 5:4).

DCLM Daily Manna 27 June 2019 – MESSAGE:

Jean de la Bruyere, a French moralist who lived from 1645 -1696 said: “There exist some evils so terrible and some misfortunes so horrible that we dare not think of them… but if they happen to fall on us; we find ourselves stronger than we imagined we grapple with our ill luck, and behave better than we expected we should.”

In life, there are two sides to everything. There are good and bad; day and night; white and black; obedience and disobedience, etc.

In the passage today, the Bible talks about “good figs.” These were the exiles that were already in captivity. The “bad figs” were those who still remained in Jerusalem. There was a difference in the hearts of the two groups. The good figs would repent and return to the Lord.

The “bad figs”, however, would continue to walk after the desires of their own hearts. Those who were in captivity would come to understand that God can be found whenever a believer is located.

God is not confined to a particular land, nor is He bound to the ceremonies of any particular religious order or temple. He is omnipresent and who lives in the hearts of the obedient.

On the other hand, the bad figs of Jerusalem were trusting that God would not allow either Jerusalem or the temple to be destroyed. These figs would be scattered. Simply because they had escaped the first captivity did not mean that they would escape future raids on Judah by the Babylonians.

The good that would come from their trial and captivity would be their repentance. And in repenting, they would give birth to a repentant generation who would, in the future, restore the existence of Israel for the coming of the Messiah.

As believers, we must always strive to be good figs in the midst of bad ones. In doing so, we win the world for Christ.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Strive to be different… bear the right fruit!

DCLM Daily Manna 26 June 2019 – Make It Manifest, written by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

TOPIC: Make It Manifest

TEXT: Matthew 10:1-15

KEY VERSE: “And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give” – (Matthew 10:7,8).

DCLM Daily Manna 26 June 2019  – MESSAGE:

In genetic science, a person’s DNA contains all the information needed to build his or her body. The DNA determines things such as eye colour, hair colour, height, and even the size of one’s nose! The DNA in the cells is responsible for physical attribute as well as many other traits. At birth, every human comes in 23 pairs of packages called chromosomes. These chromosomes are large bundles of tightly packed DNA. Both parents donate 23 chromosomes each, which pair up to give their child the full set of 23 chromosomes. So a child can either look like any of the parents or share the traits and attributes of both!

Having called and saved His disciples from the religious multitudes, Jesus transferred a measure of His supernatural power and anointing to them. He conferred the power to cast out devils, to heal all manner of sickness and diseases, they even had the power to raise the dead. Though these powers were as it were, latent, they were to become manifest as the disciples went out to preach the gospel.

DCLM Daily Manna 26 June 2019 – Make It Manifest, written by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

Thus, Peter, James, John and the rest of the apostles could do all that Jesus did, but they could not do it in the comfort of the Mount of Olives! They would have to go out to the lost sheep of the house of Israel to activate that conferred anointing.

As was with the early disciples, so it is true of us today. The moment we are saved from sin and cleansed, we receive the Spirit’s baptism, if we had sincerely desired and prayed for it after the second work of grace, sanctification. When the Holy Ghost comes during the initial baptism, He remains with us as we abide in Christ. Having now the DNA of God as it were, we begin to develop and exhibit those spiritual traits and gifts to do exploits for God. But just as nothing grows in the comfort zone, there is no way we can manifest those latent gifts and power of the Spirit, until we go to the lost sheep in our community.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: A Spirit-filled person is like naked wire with high tension current.

DCLM Daily Manna 25 June 2019 – A Balanced Diet by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

DCLM Daily Manna 25 June 2019 – A Balanced Diet, written by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

TOPIC: A Balanced Diet

TEXT: Matthew 10:34-42

KEY VERSE: “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword” – (Matthew 10:34).

DCLM Daily Manna 25 June 2019 – MESSAGE:

Life is not always a bed of roses. Sometimes a man passes through grim experiences of life that sap his resilience beyond measure. At other times, life is simply “sweet,” too rosy to dismiss. In sum, life is a mixed grill of the good and the bad.

The Lord Jesus had been speaking to His disciples. He had shared with them eternal perspectives and then some mountain-top experience conferred power and authority on them. While they were basking in that excitement, He immediately proceeded to tell them of the grim reality that they would face and a possible backlash from those who lacked maturity and might turn from the faith.

Today’s religious people easily prefer sugarcoated messages which arouse their sensual dictates and massage their ego, than sound, biblical teaching and eternal exegesis with the capacity to build them up in the most holy faith. No wonder, healing, prosperity, and so-called dominion theology have seemingly relegated to the background, holiness, self-denial, and heaven. Mercifully, the foundation of God stands sure and those who mutilate, manipulate and twist the word of God for carnal considerations, do so to their own dire and eternal peril.

To maintain a mature Christian life that can usher us into God’s holy kingdom, we must have a balanced diet of every part of God’s commandment. No part of the word of God must be put aside as too hard, too simple or irrelevant. Hearing or teaching only the “sweeter” side of the gospel without accepting the sacrifices, consecration and the cross to bear is like feeding only on meals with a heavy sugar content without taking into consideration the possibility of one’s health being impaired eventually.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God’s Word must be readily received and humbly obeyed.
