Our Daily Manna 15th February 2021 ODM Daily Devotional Message
TOPIC: Lessons from the Donkeys’ University (2)
SCRIPTURE: Matthew 21:8-9
Welcome to today’s devotional and welcome to another “DONKEY UNIVERSITY” course! Don’t forget lesson 2: The multitude did not clap and sing Hosanna for the DONKEY! They sang and cut branches from trees for the ONE described as the HIGHEST. No wonder Apostle Paul said in 1 Cor. 15:10 – “But by the grace of God, I am what I am: and His grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain…”
Each time you forget that all the “HOSANNAS” you will hear this year is because of GOD’S GRACE, then you will end up in DISGRACE! Lesson 3:THE PEOPLE LOST A GREAT OPPORTUNITY BECAUSE THEIR MOTIVES WERE WRONG!I decree that in 2021, opportunities and great open doors will not be wasted by you! I pray that your MOTIVES will not block your MOTION (speed)!
See what happened – By singing, “hosanna” as Jesus passed through the gates of Jerusalem and referring to David/ David’s kingdom, the Jews were acknowledging the LORD Jesus as their Messiah. They had waited a long time for the fulfilment of the Davidic Covenant (2 Samuel 7; 1 Chronicles 17:11–14) and their shouts of “hosanna in the highest” was because they thought that their HOPE, their Messiah, had finally come to set up God’s kingdom.
With all the miracles and signs/wonders, they were excited that A JEW had arrived on the scene to deliver them (Luke 19:11), but their MOTIVES WERE WRONG! The shout of “HOSANNA” by the crowd was (paraphrased): “Save us, our dear Messiah, David’s Son, who has come to fulfil God’s mission – our deliverance from the ROMANS! Save us, we beseech You, as You take Your rightful throne and extend heaven’s salvation to us!”
Sadly, the salvation that the people of Jerusalem wanted that day was political, not spiritual. They did not know that their political deliverance and the fulfilment of the Davidic Covenant was to happen in the future – at the second coming of Christ (Acts 1:11). They forgot that before the LORD/ King Jesus could take care of their political problems, He had to take care of the sin problem first! So they shouted “HOSANNA” but lost an opportunity to accept the LORD.
In 2021, you will not lose OPPORTUNITIES that God will send across to you! That was the reason why Jesus wept over Jerusalem in today’s 2nd scripture! May He not “weep” over you in 2021. Amen! Pray seriously now.

Our Daily Bread 6th March 2021 Devotional – Minding My Own Business
Our Daily Bread 6th March 2021 Today Devotional Message By Our Daily Bread Ministries, Written By vid H. Roper
Topic: Minding My Own Business
Today’s Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 4:9–12
9 But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.
10 And indeed ye do it toward all the brethren which are in all Macedonia: but we beseech you, brethren, that ye increase more and more;
11 And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;
12 That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.
Key Verse: Mind your own business and work with your hands. – 1 Thessalonians 4:11
INSIGHT: The church at Thessalonica, imperfect like all human organizations, was nevertheless one of the premier congregations in the New Testament. Established by Paul, Silas, and Timothy (Acts 16:1–5; 17:1–3), this church quickly became a hub of missionary activity—in part because of the profound witness the Thessalonians presented of the transforming power of the gospel. Paul applauds this transformation in the opening verses of this letter, where he says that their witness had reached throughout their land: “They tell how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God” (1 Thessalonians 1:9). In a first-century Greek culture that proliferated with idols, their turning away from them speaks of dramatic change—turning away from dead idols of wood and stone to the God who is not only living but life-giving to all who trust Him. From idolatry to a living faith in the living God, the Thessalonians displayed true transformation.
Our Daily Bread 6th March 2021 Devotional Message:
Years ago, my son Josh and I were making our way up a mountain trail when we spied a cloud of dust rising in the air. We crept forward and discovered a badger busy making a den in a dirt bank. He had his head and shoulders in the hole and was vigorously digging with his front paws and kicking the dirt out of the hole with his hind feet. He was so invested in his work he didn’t hear us.
I couldn’t resist and prodded him from behind with a long stick lying nearby. I didn’t hurt the badger, but he leaped straight up in the air and turned toward us. Josh and I set new world records for the hundred-yard dash.
I learned something from my brashness: Sometimes it’s best not to poke around in other people’s business. That’s especially true in relationships with fellow believers in Jesus. The apostle Paul encouraged the Thessalonians to “make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands” (1 Thessalonians 4:11). We’re to pray for others and seek by God’s grace to share the Scriptures, and occasionally we may be called to offer a gentle word of correction. But learning to live a quiet life and not meddling into others’ lives is important. It becomes an example to those who are now outside God’s family (v. 12). Our calling is to “love each other” (v. 9).
Reflect & Pray
What happens when you meddle in other people’s business? What’s the first thing you should do instead for others?
God, teach me to know what it means to love others better.

Seeds of Destiny 6th March 2021 Devotional – Associating With People of Value
TOPIC: Associating With People of Value
SCRIPTURE: Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27:17.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Relate with someone who will assist you to defend your values.
In our previous studies, it was established that your relationship can either make or mar your life and destiny. Where you are in life today is a function of the influences around you. When you hang around negative influences, you cannot go far in life. On the other hand, when you hang around positive influences, your destiny is guaranteed.
Now, one category of people to relate with in order to have a destiny of quality is people who treasure your principles and value your standards in life.
Relate with people who respect your decision not to smoke, drink, or talk against others.
Relate with someone who will respect and protect your decision not to defile the bed during courtship or before marriage. Relate with someone who will assist you to defend your values. Relate with someone who will not be a bad influence in your life.
Relate with someone who will not introduce you to a wrong habit or character. Relate with someone who will not only value you but also respect and protect your values. Relate with someone who will defend the standards you set for your life.
Don’t relate with people who will discourage you when you want to carry out an act of kindness towards others. For example, when you tell someone that you want to send money to your parents and he discourages you from doing it, he is not a person to relate with.
Beloved, don’t relate with people who don’t respect your values or standards in life.
Seeds of Destiny 6th March 2021 Today Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche
REMEMBER THIS: Relate with someone who will assist you to defend your values.
1. Relate with people who respect your values and uphold your standards in life.
2. Do not relate with people whose values are not only contrary but harmful to yours.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to apply the wisdom for profitable relationships. Help me to relate with people who value my life’s values and standards in life, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: Maintain the right association. The Bible tells us that a companion of fools shall be destroyed. Culled from “15 KINGDOM STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY READING: 2 Samuel 20-22.
AMAZING FACT: Honey bees are the only insect that produces food consumed by humans.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Grace to maintain positive/quality value system is released in Jesus’ Name.

Reading 1, Micah 7:14-15, 18-20
14 With shepherd’s crook lead your people to pasture, the flock that is your heritage, living confined in a forest with meadow land all round. Let them graze in Bashan and Gilead as in the days of old!
15 As in the days when you came out of Egypt, grant us to see wonders!
18 What god can compare with you for pardoning guilt and for overlooking crime? He does not harbour anger for ever, since he delights in showing faithful love.
19 Once more have pity on us, tread down our faults; throw all our sins to the bottom of the sea.
20 Grant Jacob your faithfulness, and Abraham your faithful love, as you swore to our ancestors from the days of long ago.
Catholic Daily Mass Reading Saturday 6th March 2021 Online
Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 103:1-2, 3-4, 9-10, 11-12
1 [Of David] Bless Yahweh, my soul, from the depths of my being, his holy name;
2 bless Yahweh, my soul, never forget all his acts of kindness.
3 He forgives all your offences, cures all your diseases,
4 he redeems your life from the abyss, crowns you with faithful love and tenderness;
9 his indignation does not last for ever, nor his resentment remain for all time;
10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve, nor repay us as befits our offences.
11 As the height of heaven above earth, so strong is his faithful love for those who fear him.
12 As the distance of east from west, so far from us does he put our faults.
Gospel, Luke 15:1-3, 11-32
1 The tax collectors and sinners, however, were all crowding round to listen to him,
2 and the Pharisees and scribes complained saying, ‘This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.’
3 So he told them this parable:
11 Then he said, ‘There was a man who had two sons.
12 The younger one said to his father, “Father, let me have the share of the estate that will come to me.” So the father divided the property between them.
13 A few days later, the younger son got together everything he had and left for a distant country where he squandered his money on a life of debauchery.
14 ‘When he had spent it all, that country experienced a severe famine, and now he began to feel the pinch;
15 so he hired himself out to one of the local inhabitants who put him on his farm to feed the pigs.
16 And he would willingly have filled himself with the husks the pigs were eating but no one would let him have them.
17 Then he came to his senses and said, “How many of my father’s hired men have all the food they want and more, and here am I dying of hunger!
18 I will leave this place and go to my father and say: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you;
19 I no longer deserve to be called your son; treat me as one of your hired men.”
20 So he left the place and went back to his father. ‘While he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was moved with pity. He ran to the boy, clasped him in his arms and kissed him.
21 Then his son said, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I no longer deserve to be called your son.”
22 But the father said to his servants, “Quick! Bring out the best robe and put it on him; put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet.
23 Bring the calf we have been fattening, and kill it; we will celebrate by having a feast,
24 because this son of mine was dead and has come back to life; he was lost and is found.” And they began to celebrate.
25 ‘Now the elder son was out in the fields, and on his way back, as he drew near the house, he could hear music and dancing.
26 Calling one of the servants he asked what it was all about.
27 The servant told him, “Your brother has come, and your father has killed the calf we had been fattening because he has got him back safe and sound.”
28 He was angry then and refused to go in, and his father came out and began to urge him to come in;
29 but he retorted to his father, “All these years I have slaved for you and never once disobeyed any orders of yours, yet you never offered me so much as a kid for me to celebrate with my friends.
30 But, for this son of yours, when he comes back after swallowing up your property — he and his loose women — you kill the calf we had been fattening.”
31 ‘The father said, “My son, you are with me always and all I have is yours.
32 But it was only right we should celebrate and rejoice, because your brother here was dead and has come to life; he was lost and is found.” ‘
