DCLM Daily Manna 17th July 2018 Devotional by Pastor Kumuyi
Topic: Nothing Comes Easy
Scripture: Job 28:1-11
Key Verse: “He cutteth out rivers among the rocks; and his eye seeth every precious thing” (Job 28:10).
Message: Great things are worth the high price they demand. Job clearly understood this. In his efforts to explain the truth about a pilgrim’s journey, he gave a graphic description that must follow the search for wonderful, beautiful and precious things, which add value to life. To him, things must not only be carefully worked out, they must also be done with diligence and great strength of mind.
Precious stones are always in the right places, but only when persons of focus, skill and doggedness make out something from them that these ordinary rocks become useful. To find these special rocks, mortals must go underground, squeeze their bodies through cracks in the ground, enter the cave and break rocks before taking out the precious metals. If mortals can make great efforts to get things of temporal, earthly value, Christians ought to make greater efforts and sacrifices for things of eternal value.
Unfortunately, many people only call the name of God when things are rosy, whereas there are geologists and petroleum engineers who know what it takes to get oil from the deep sea, and pay heavy price to get them. We should always strive to get things of eternal value, which are more precious than earthly wealth.
True children of God must bear transient phases of adversity in life, with perseverance and state like the psalmist that, “though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil…”. Believers pass through fire and they are not consumed. Their souls follow hard after God and eternal glory.
Thought For The Day: Absolute faith in God helps to overcome life’s challenges.
Bible In One Year: Isaiah 18-22
