DCLM Daily Manna 22 May 2019 Devotional Retrospect And Prospect by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

DATE: Wednesday, May 22, 2019

TOPIC: Retrospect And Prospect

TEXT: 1 Samuel 7:1-12

KEY VERSE: “Then Samuel took a stone, and set it between Mizpeh and Shen, and called the name of it Ebenezer, saying, Hitherto hath the LORD helped us.” – (1 Samuel 7:12).

MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna 22 May 2019 Devotional

Life is short. However long a journey is, it must surely come to an end. Most men wrongly hold that life will last forever only to discover in the long run it is like vapour seen one moment, yet evaporates the next minute.

The children of Israel had suffered much from the hands of the Philistines because of their sin. They were in bondage of fear. The Ark of the Lord captured by the Philistines had been released because of the wrath of God poured upon the idolaters. At Bethshemesh, the Lord had smitten the people and fifty-seven thousand died as a result of looking into the Ark of the Lord. The men of Kirjathjearim came and fetched up the Ark and brought it into it the house of Abinadab, consecrating Eleazar, his son to keep the Ark.

Looking back, the children of Israel were compassed about with so many occurrences of disaster, destruction and death. It was as if their future was bleak and hopeless. Then Samuel came and preached repentance to them. They hearkened to him and returned to the Lord. Although the enemies that defeated them over the years came again, the Lord gave them a resounding victory.

Looking at your own life too, you might have passed through the valley of the shadow of death. Maybe the devil and his agents have been making life difficult for you in your family, academics and business. Don’t give up. “Prepare your hearts unto the Lord, and serve Him only and He will deliver you.”

God loves you. Jesus cares about you. Think of what the Lord has done for you. If the Lord has not abandoned you despite your many failings, indications are that He will perfect what He has started in you, once you make your calling and election sure.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Trials provoke triumphs which in turn midwife testimonies.

DAILY BIBLE READING: 1 Samuel 3-5

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

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.
