OUR DAILY MANNA 21ST MAY [THURSDAY] 2020 – MESSAGE: TROUBLES ARE DIVINE MESSENGERS!
Welcome to today’s devotional encounter! There is no fight, struggle, battle or trouble that is sweet. The average human being wants a lite free from trouble and struggle. We pray, and wish for a life of no battles. We long for the easy going life. Oh! No! Life itselt is TRAVAIL.
You were born out of travail and born into travail. NOTHING JUST HAPPENS! God allows things to happen so that you can happen! TROUBLES ARE DIVINE MESSENGERS and they carry within them DIVINE MANDATES. Whenever you are going through troubles or battles, try to always see the GLORIOUS END and not the GLOOMY BEGINNING.
You are the one and only precious asset of God on planet earth and He will ensure that you are not liquidated. Judges 14:5 says, “Then went Samson down, and his father and his mother, to Timnath, and came to the vineyards of Timnath: and, behold, a young lion roared against him.”
As you go through life and indeed this year, you will come across lions that want to stop and resist your progress, advancement, favour and open doors. When you see the lion or lions, don’t retreat in fear; face it with courage and boldness because it is carrying your honey.
But until you kill the LION, your HONEY Will not snow up: Verse 6 says: “And the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and he rent him as he would have rent a kid, and he had nothing in his hand: but he told not his father or his mother what he had done. Note: HE HAD NOTHING IN HIS HAND”- except the Spirit of the LORD! Oh!
It’s not by power nor by might but by the Spirit of God. What the Holy Ghost is saying to you through today’s devotional is that you can’t fight the Iions alone this year. They are in your office, neighbourhood, community even church. You need the Holy Ghost to guide, lead and direct your journey through life.
See what happened after the death of the lions. Verse 8 says: “And after a time he returned to take her, and he turned aside to see the carcass of the lion: and behold, there was a swarm of bees and honey in the carcass of the lion. And he took thereof in his hands, and went on eating…” Wow!
THE LION PRODUCED HIS HONEY! His pain produced his gain! His struggle produced his strides! His Scar produced his star and his shame produced his fame! No matter how this year has been, don’t quit or give up because THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH WILL PREVAIL UPON EVERY OTHER “LION” CONFRONTING YOU UNTIL THEY PRODUCE YOUR ELEVATION HONEY this year! Amen and amen! Daily Manna 21 May 2020 – TROUBLES ARE DIVINE MESSENGERS!
