TOPIC: He Never Leaves You Empty
LUKE 5 : 1-11
Our Daily Manna 8th March 2021 ODM Devotional
God will never leave you EMPTY! He will replace everything you lost! If He asks you to put something down, it is because He wants you to pick up something greater! The LORD asked for Simon Peter’s boat and He SAT down on that boat to TEACH and PREACH! But when Peter lost the SEAT of his boat temporarily, he got back a THRONE in eternity! In this New Year 2021, always remember that God NEVER leaves you EMPTY! He has your back and He is ready to WRECK your plans if He knows that your plans will eventually WRECK you! That is why you must TRUST GOD even in the CHAOS of your storms! Ask Peter!
Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of your BRAIN and the power of reason to believe! Again, be reminded of 1 Samuel 30:6: “And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.” The Amalekites invaded Ziklag, his residence at the time, and TOOK AWAY HIS COMFORT (his wives and children).
When your COMFORT is attacked, just wait upon the LORD. He has a plan for your RECOVERY! In this year 2021, LEARN how to ENCOURAGE YOURSELF when the world around you is screaming: GIVE UP! When you encourage yourself by the Word of God and His promises, you are spitting FIRE against the enemy! Robert Jordan opined: “The leaf lives its appointed time, and does not struggle against the wind that carries it away. The leaf does no harm and finally falls to nourish new leaves. So it should be with all men and women.” Wow!
THERE IS A PURPOSE FOR THE PAIN! Refuse to STRUGGLE or lose your PEACE because God will never leave you EMPTY! If He asks you to put something down, it is because He wants you to pick up something greater! You are about to RECOVER all! Hold on and hold out!
