Our Daily Manna August 24, 2017: ODM devotional – The China Great Walls: Grace to Grass

Topic: The China Great Walls: Grace to Grass [Thursday 24 August, 2017]

(1 Samuel 13:6-14).

Two-thirds of the 2,300 year-old Great Wall of China has been destroyed by sightseers and fun seekers. The wall which was built by the first Emperor of China, Quin Shi Huang, and is about 21,196km and one of the world’s tourist attractions, is fast crumbling out of existence. Sections are said to have been vandalized by visitors, or covered by signatures, paint or other coloured objects. In fact, part of it has been ripped open for use in coal mines recently. The Worls Monuments Fund which describes the wall as “one of the most extensive cultural lands on earth” placed it on its list of the world’s most endengered architectural sites.

The point of our meditation today is that an object of pleasure has turned into an object of pressure and pain. It was a site of relaxation, which has now become a site of regrets. It was a monument of grace (diginity), which is now a place of disgrace (dishonor). Likewise, God’s gift and callings upon our lives can become burdens instead of blessings! The anointing upon a person if not preserved and guarded jealously can become his/her point of disgrace and shame. Daniel prayed three times a day to preserve the Hand of God in his life!

Jesus took regular times off to preserve the Hand of God upon Him. Do you know that God rejected and regretted raising Saul as a King? Preserve the gifts and callings of God upon your life and ministry jealously, lest they become dry and worn out. As 2017 runs along like the setting sun, always remember that you carry a product older and more precious than the Great Wall of China. Guard it jealously!

THE LAGOS (OGUDU) MOUNTAIN AUGUST ANOINTING SERVICE is Sunday August 27th. TIME: 7:00am. THEME: GOD OF FAVOR, REMEMBER ME. (Bring your oil of favor; label it “Oil of Favor.” I shall lay hands on you and your oil). VENUE: 8-10 Omotayo Banwo Street, Transformer B/Stop, Ogudu-Orioke, Ogudu, Lagos.

3. The Wall of China is being turned to shame. Lord, grant me the grace not to destroy or dilute the anointing upon my life/ ministry ( Pray it very well).
