DCLM Daily Manna 9 August 2018 Devotional by Pastor Kumuyi

Topic: God’s Goodness and Severity

Scripture: Isaiah 30:27-33 (KJV)

Key Verse: “For through the voice of the LORD shall the Assyrian be beaten down, which smote with a rod” (Isaiah 30:31).

Message: God’s love and goodness have always been many people’s focus. Truly, God is “merciful and gracious, longsuffering and abundant in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands …[but he] will by no means clear the guilty” (Exodus 34:6,7). The “goodness and severity” of God then, must be juxtaposed to have a balanced picture of who God really is.

DCLM Daily Manna 9 August 2018 Devotional by Pastor Kumuyi

In our text, God’s power and glory is seen from a distance with fire and smoke showing His anger. His breath like overflowing stream can carry everything away, sweeping the nations to destruction and putting an end to their evil plans. The Assyrian will be judged and their king cast into “Tophet” – a form of hell fire. Men will feel the force of God’s anger “with the flame of devouring fire…”

It is not the will of God that a sinner should perish. He desires that all men will be saved. But then, men are free moral agents. God says, “I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing, therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live” (Deuteronomy 30:19). The choice to hearken, obey and serve God is a good one. To reject His entreaties will amount to self-condemnation
on and eternal loss. DCLM Daily Manna 9 August 2018 Devotional by Pastor Kumuyi

God will judge the wicked by His standards. Assyria may have reigned over nations with terror for years, but judgment came upon her eventually. God is still calling men today so that He can give them rest.

Thought For The Day: Taking God’s love for granted is damning.

Bible Reading In One Year: Jeremiah 7-9

DCLM Daily Manna 18 October 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi

Topic: Consider The Consequence

Text: Judges 21:1-15

Key Verse: “Now the men of Israel had sworn in Mizpeh, saying, There shall not any of us give his daughter unto Benjamin to wife” (Judges 21:1).

DCLM Daily Manna 18 October 2018 Message: The need to pause and evaluate issues critically before taking decisions cannot be overemphasised. It has been said that today’s decision is tomorrow’s reality. Every decision we take will, by extension, have implications on the lives of many others, even generations yet unborn.
Israel, in her presumed zeal for God, twice took decisions in anger which they ended up regretting. Their rash decisions resulted in the destruction of lives which they could not restore. In fact, they had to also kill the men of Jabesh Gilead in their attempt to get wives for the Benjamites which still couldn’t solve the problem. It is important to note that God warns against anger or associating with an angry or furious man (Ephesians 4:31; Proverbs 22:24).

Decisions taken in anger or reacting angrily to issues is a reflection of the foolishness in man because “He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly…” (Proverbs 14:17). Rash decisions often result in regrets. It compounds man’s problem and aggravates error and disaster.

DCLM Daily Manna 18 October 2018 Devotional – Consider The Consequence

It is wrong for anyone to take another person’s life under the excuse of being zealous for God. There can be no element of divinity in any spurious swallowing up of humanity. Therefore, subsume your temper to the control of the Almighty. To avoid fatal errors and regrets, approach God in prayers before taking decisions. “Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established”

Thought for the Day: Think before you act; don’t act before you think.

Daily Bible Reading: John 6

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 17 October 2018 – The Escape Route by Pastor Kumuyi

TOPIC: The Escape Route

TEXT: Matthew 11:20-30

KEY VERSE: “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Mathew 11:28).

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 17 October 2018 MESSAGE: Practical experiences during childhood reveals that, it isn’t all the threats or lies aimed at creating fear in the child that are real. Most times, an inquisitive child soon discovers that nothing like the foretold consequences happens. This often emboldens him/her to flout other instructions believing that there would be no serious adverse consequence after all.

This same scenario, no doubt, plays itself out in the attitude of most people concerning the stern warning of Christ to the religious, carefree and impenitent of the dire consequences of their sinful lifestyle. We need to understand that God is not a man. His words will ever be true and He has appointed a day for judgment of evil men and women. Many justify their rebellion against God on the grounds that many church leaders and religious people commit sin without any consequence.

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 17 October 2018 – The Escape Route by Pastor Kumuyi
The Scripture describes the unfortunate condition thus: “Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil” (Ecclesiastes 8:11). It should, however, be noted that no sinner will go unpunished, because on the judgment day, God will not be swayed by money, emotion or any other factor.

The sure way of escape is repentance and faith in Christ as revealed through the solemn invitation in our text. Those who reject the invitation of Christ to repentance today will one day face the sordid reality of judgment in hell. Be wise to repent by acknowledging, confessing and forsaking your sins so that heaven can rejoice over you too. Pray for pardon.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The wheel of God’s judgment may drive slowly, but it is imminent.

DCLM Daily Manna 16 October 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi

TOPIC: He Is Ever Faithful

TEXT: PSALMS 89:30-46

KEY VERSE: “My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips”
(PSALMS 89:34).

MESSAGE: The story was told of an exhausted wayfarer who ran out of water in a desert. He later got to a well and in his desperation pumped with the strength remaining in him with the aim of getting water but to no avail. About to give up, he saw a jug of water with an inscription on the side directing him to pour the water into the machine for priming before pumping to get water. In this desperate situation, he was afraid of taking the risk of pouring the water into the pump and not getting needed result. However, he summoned up courage, poured the water into the pump and started pumping. He got water surging out of the well which he used to refresh himself, stored up for his journey and filled back the jug as he was instructed.

DCLM Daily Manna 16 October 2018 Devotional – He Is Ever Faithful

The house of David had a divine bouquet of promises wrapped in God’s faithfulness and love. He promised pardon since God knew that sin could block their access to His promises. God’s promises are true, universal and made out of a heart of love. However, the enjoyment of His divine benevolence is always predicated on readiness to fulfil certain conditions.

As it was with the desert traveller, drawing from God’s well of love and mercy, so is it for everyone who approaches the throne of grace with faith and trust. Your destination depends on the route you choose. To benefit from God’s unbroken promises and put an end to grumbling, complaints and lamentations, decide to turn away from sin and receive Christ as your personal Saviour. Then He will forever remain faithful if you consistently abide in His word.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God is ever faithful when He is approached in penitence.
