Deeper Life Daily Manna 30th March 2021 Today Devotional by Pastor W.F Kumuyi – Our Lethal Weapon
TOPIC: OUR LETHAL WEAPON (DCLM Daily Manna 30 March 2021)
TEXT: HEBREWS 11:32-40
KEY VERSE: “Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions” – Hebrews 11:33
Over the ages, man has developed and used different types of weapons to fight wars with varying potencies and consequences. Early men fought with spears, swords, axes, daggers, clubs or maces. Later, more lethal weapons were invented including the nuclear arms. As powerful as these weapons are, the greatest is the spiritual weapon of faith. Our text depicts the exploits and victories of men and women of faith.
The challenges and battles were formidable, yet God gave them overwhelming victories. Joshua subdued kingdoms. Gideon had great power in battle. Samson was anointed with the Holy Spirit and had never used any other arms than the implements of husbandry, yet he went into battle with a formidable and more experienced nation. Barak was inferior to his enemies but was guided only by the counsel of a woman.
Daniel came forth safe and untouched from the lions’ den. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego walked in a burning furnace as cheerfully as on a pleasant meadow. Deborah won battles. A widow’s son was brought back to life by Elijah, the prophet. These saints of old followed the guidance of God and activated His promises; they undertook great tasks and were honoured by Him. We too can experience exploits and victories through faith in Christ.
Yes, irrespective of our unique circumstances in life, we too can have similar experiences. Beyond the victories and exploits in physical circumstances, believers are guaranteed the real victory which God has promised. He will not desert His people. He has promised never to leave us. Therefore, we ought to trust and rest in His power and promises.
Thought For Today: Faith is more powerful than any human weapon!
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: DEUTERONOMY 31 – 34
