Our Daily Manna For 20th December, 2017
Theme – Chaos Provokes Your Chorus!
Basic Scriptures: Genesis 1:1-8; Isaiah 45:18
The word “COSMOS” is the Greek interpretation of the organized universe as a whole! The amplified Bible partly puts Vs 2 of today’s text thus: “And the earth was without form and an empty waste …” Oh, I love the words: “empty waste” in the Amplified Bible than the word “void” in King James Version. Another word for “empty waste” is “CHAOS.”
Note that I Genesis 1:2, man was not yet created. That means the God experience a season of chaos in His dealing with angels (Lucifer’s rebellion/fall in which one-third of the angels fell with him). But the good news is that the present COSMOS was born out of the former CHAOS (Hebrew 11:3; 2 Peter 3:5). And the Holy message to you today is that in the year 2017, out of every chaos in your life, family ministry shall arise a future of harmony and beauty. Ecclesiastic 3:11 says that God makes all things beautiful in His time and He will turn that CHAOS disappointment and delay into a BURNINGBUSH that shall give him glory! A bush that supposed to burn became a tourist attraction. CHAOS was turned into CHORUS and that shall be your life’s story if you hold on to God.
Listen to Rainer Maria Rilke: “Be patient over all that is unsolved in your heart. And try to love the questions themselves.” Yes, you have unanswered questions but never forget that sometimes, even to live in act of courage.
Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote: “When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you till it seems you could not hold a minute longer, never give up then for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” Lazarus was a chaos (bad thinking case) that became a chorus of praise! That will be the story of your life this year and beyond! Hold on to God!
Prayer Points: Take this song: Because He Lives…
1. Thank God for today’s word and pray as you are led!
2. Lord, turn this chaos in my life and ministry to a chorus of wonders (Mention that bad situation in your life now).
3. Lord, visit me with Your mercy again in Jesus name.
4. Give me a miracle that will make me a tourist attraction.
5. As 2017 ends, I resist discouragement, depression and fear of the future NOW! There shall be ALL-ROUND EVIDENCE this year concerning my life and destiny in Jesus name.
