DCLM Daily Manna 15 October 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi
Topic: There is Hope
Text: EZRA 10:1-14
Key Verse: “…We have trespassed against our God, and have taken strange wives of the people of the land: yet now there is hope in Israel concerning this thing” (Ezra 10:2).
DCLM Daily Manna 15 October 2018 MESSAGE: Most often, it has been discovered that people fail in life not because of the enormity of their problems, but because they give up easily and are not ready to take personal responsibility for their circumstances. Actually quitters never win.
The passage reveals the challenges Ezra and some concerned leaders faced in bringing Israel back to God from their backslidden state. They prayed, wept, confessed, repented and made restitutions. It is clear from their action and attitude that they clearly understood the maxim that “Every cloud has a silver lining”.
The uniform testimony of the Scripture is that as much as God is angry with sin, He loves the sinner and is ready to deliver those who follow the path of repentance and rectitude. A lot of problems with individuals and society will be solved, if we pray aright rather than search for answers where they don’t exist. Going to the mountains, visiting prophets, paying and compensating people to hold vigils on our behalf will amount to nothing if we do not sincerely repent. You can experience positive change, if you simply look inwards, own up to your faults, confess them to God, repent of them, make restitutions where necessary and yield to Christ completely. This will definitely open the door of recovery, revival and renewal in your life. Be courageous to do it because there is still hope for you.
Thought for the Day: The darker your night, the brighter your dawn when you repent.
