Our Daily Manna 3rd March 2021 ODM Devotional Message by Bishop Dr. Chris Kwakpovwe
TOPIC: The Battle Was Time Bound! Darkness Promotes Stars
Eccl. 3 : 1-8
1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
Our Daily Manna 3rd March 2021 ODM Devotional Message
Vs 14 of today’s 2nd scripture says: “Is anything too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.” Note the words: “AT THE TIME APPOINTED”! Ah! Those who were mocking Sarah’s barrenness never knew it was time bound.
Even Sarah herself never knew that her childlessness had an expiry date attached to it. And what the Holy Ghost is saying to a user of today’s devotional is that in this New Year 2021, ANY ALLOWED BATTLE IN YOUR LIFE IS TIME BOUND! Fear not! Yes, your testimony, expansion, business breakthrough, OPEN REWARD STORY, promotion answers, expectations and marital connection has an appointed time.
God has a timetable for your destiny and He will ensure that it is not disrupted by anything, anybody or any power. Also note that stars cannot shine without darkness! Life is battle and war, but there are victories also! Most of the stars you admire, you admire them because of darkness. Stars are beautified by darkness.
Whatever God allows you to go through will beautify you at last. Oh! Battles bake and refine you and bring out the best in you! In 1 Samuel 1:1-18, Hannah went through a knock down of childlessness which brought shame, ridicule and mockery to her, but she refused to be knocked out. Hannah made a vow to God and the vow is called, “THE NAZARENE VOW.”
One of the ways to end reproach is by making a vow to God. She vowed that if God would bless her with a male child, she would give him back to God and no RAZOR would come upon his head. Hannah was saying, “LORD, I will not share the glory of this child with You; he will be all Yours.” In other words, the child will be a Nazarene, set apart for God’s service all the days of his life.
The razor vow is a sharp and painful vow you make to commit yourself to God and provoke heaven’s attention. Another thing Hannah did was that she refused to take a “NO” for an answer as she groaned in prayer to God and she was tagged a drunkard. She was like a mad woman! She was aggressive, radical and crazy for solution. Yes, in this year 2021, be radical and crazy about life.
Go for crazy determination! Be mad for God and walk by faith daily until your world calls you MAD! Remember that it is darkness that brings out the glory of the stars. There is a “butterfly” in you! Peace!
