DCLM Daily Manna, Thursday April 28 2016 by Pastor Kumuyi - Rest in His Bosom
Topic: Rest in His Bosom [Thursday April 28, 2016]
Text: Psalm 89:8-17
Key Verse: "For thou art the glory of their strength: and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted" (Psalm 89:17).
The psalmist here emphasises the created world being obedient to the will of God, and focuses on God's power over the strongest of nations who succumbed to His great power. He noted that God is capable of sweeping the universe back into its nothingness that was before the creation with just a breath.
David, through metaphorical statements, describes the strength of God among all the people of the world. No man is as strong as He is because He is powerful over all things. In biblical and contemporary times, there are myriads of outstanding testimonies of God's omnipotence and faithfulness in the lives of His people. In times of troubles when the enemy assails and his seemingly strong forces press hard, the testimonies of what He did in time past should encourage anyone to trust Him. Recounting the matchless power and faithfulness of God gives you the inner strength to keep holding on when darkness seems to surround you.
Records of what God has done for others are an indication that He will do the same for you. Do not forget how He intervened in the lives of others at a point all hope seemed lost. God has not changed. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Have you been forsaken by friends and relations? Does it appear you have no helper in the whole wide world, particularly in times like these when "connections" are the order of the day; when employments and almost everything depends on who you know in society? Relax; the psalmist reminds us that God is the glory of our strength and that in His favour "our horn shall be exalted".
Thought for the day: It is only the mountain you conceive in your imagination that can stand before you.
