DCLM Daily Manna 30 October 2018 Devotional by Pastor Kumuyi
TOPIC: Rob Not God Of His Glory
TEXT: ACTS 12:20-25
KEY VERSE: “And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man” (Acts 12:22).
DCLM DAILY MANNA 30 OCTOBER 2018 MESSAGE: One aspect of Africa’s idolatrous practices is the art of giving praise names to flatter and honour people who are held in high esteem. The unbelieving Africans shower praises and by-names on great people during important occasions to adore and exalt them for their positions and accomplishments. In that process, men are sometimes given praises for what is obviously done by God. The heathens are oblivious that praises due unto God should not be given to or received by any man.
In the text, King Herod was flattered by the people of Tyre and Sidon who came to appease and conciliate him in order to regain his favour and love as he was their benefactor. They ascribed to him honour and glory due unto God. They shouted with one voice after the elegant and royal speech of King Herod that his voice was the voice of a god and not of a man.

It should be realised that our God is a jealous God who will never share His glory or praises with anyone. No wonder, an angel of God struck Herod dead and was immediately eaten up by worms. God will definitely be glorified upon anyone who refuse to glorify Him.
DCLM Daily Manna 30 October 2018 Devotional by Pastor Kumuyi – Rob Not God Of His Glory
No child of God should allow anyone to give him any praises due unto God. When a believer is praised or flattered, he should direct the glory to God immediately. Praise names, cognomens, bynames, flatteries and undue praises are the properties of Satan and his agents, which no believer should accept.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Self-exaltation leads to public humiliation.
