Deeper Life Daily Manna 21 January 2021 DCLM Devotional MESSAGE:
Whatever God allows in our lives eventually works to our benefit. This is sometimes difficult to comprehend, especially when we are experiencing tough situations or confronting deadly storms of life. At such times, our heads are swirling with questions on why we were singled out to suffer such fate and why the Lord seemed to have neglected us. But God will never allow us to go through experiences that could weaken our faith or destroy our lives.
He is very deliberate and careful in threshing His field, the Church. Here He admonished Israel that even though judgment was upon them, if they paid attention carefully to Him and changed their ways, He would re-enact His love and care for them. God illustrated His love for Israel with the process adopted by the farmer to dig the soil, sow seeds of different kinds in their proper places; and during harvest, expertly thresh some seeds, beat others with stick and rod, all the time ensuring that they were not crushed.
This is the result of good knowledge. But God is far better than the tender farmer. He is wonderful in counsel and excellent in working. The depths of His rich wisdom and knowledge are simply unsearchable “and His ways are past finding out”. We may be facing afflictions and sore trials, but God will not allow them to destroy us. Our individual circumstances and weaknesses are well known to Him. He is eternally sensitive towards us and His tenderness for us is boundless as we abide by His word.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God cares deeply for those who walk in His will.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Exodus 17-19
