DCLM Daily Manna 3rd July 2020 Devotional – Relieving The Oppressed by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

TODAY’S TOPIC: RELIEVING THE OPPRESSED

TEXT: Job 26:1-14
1. But Job answered and said,

2. How hast thou helped him that is without power? how savest thou the arm that hath no strength?

3. How hast thou counselled him that hath no wisdom? and how hast thou plentifully declared the thing as it is?

4. To whom hast thou uttered words? and whose spirit came from thee?

5. Dead things are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof.

6. Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.

7. He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.

8. He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them.

9. He holdeth back the face of his throne, and spreadeth his cloud upon it.

10. He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end.

11. The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof.

12. He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud.

13. By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.

14. Lo, these are parts of his ways; but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?

KEY VERSE: “But Job answered and said, How hast thou helped him that is without power? how savest thou the arm that hath no strength? – (Job 26:1,2)

MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna 3rd July 2020 Devotional

A brother was preparing for marriage and many unsavoury things just kept on happening to him. He lost his job and his attempt to get accommodation was like a camel passing through the eye of a needle. After some protracted struggles, he managed to raise some money for the marriage.

On the set date, as he was going for the ceremony, he was attacked and stripped of all the cash he was going with. He came back with tales of woes and most of the brethren concluded that he must have been living in secret sin to have experienced such calamities which is not befitting of a true child of God.

This is similar to the experience of Job. His three friends, Eliphaz, Bildad and Zophar, who came initially to comfort him later turned out to accuse him of wrong doings which they believed caused his afflictions.

Our reaction when a brother or sister is going through intense trials, persecution, sickness, bereavement, extreme poverty, etc. is very important. We are to weep with them that weep by being an encouragement and support to them. We must not be like the three friends of Job who became accusers instead of comforters.

Do not do anything to add to their pains and sufferings. Isolating them because of what they are going through will be the most unkind and uncharitable thing to do. Let us be there for them in their trying times and together we shall rejoice when the sunshine of victory breaks forth for them.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Encourage the discouraged, strengthen the weak.

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ezra 7-10
