Our Daily Manna October 18, 2017: ODM devotional – When It Does Not Make Sense

Our Daily Manna October 18, 2017: ODM devotional – When It Does Not Make Sense

Topic: When It Does Not Make Sense [Wednesday, October 18, 2017]

Basic Scripture: Isaiah 55: 1-10

Most instructions that God will send to you for the lifting of your destiny will never make sense to you at first instance. For example, the Word of God to Abraham (Genesis 15: 1-3); Moses (Exodus 4: 10-14); Joshua (1: 9, 3:15); Joseph (Matt. 1: 19-20); Jeremiah (Jer. 1:6), etc, did not make initially.

The word says, “His ways are not our ways, neither are His thoughts our thoughts” (Isaiah 555:8-10).

When God called great men like late Oral Roberts, the late archbishop Idahosa, the late Lester Sumrall, the late Pastor Akindayomi (RCCG founder), Pastor W.F . Kumuyi, the late Pastor Collins Babalola, etc, it did not make sense then, but it made sense later!

When God called me, tiny little dust – the writer of this devotional, to drop pharmacy as a full time profession and go into ministry, it did not make sense. I disobeyed initially and was struck with Epitasis (bleeding from the nose). It was while I was in on admission in the hospital, that I resigned from my Pharmacy job and was healed/discharged on the same day without further medication. All the doctors and nurses were shocked, because I told them that I was a ‘Jonah’ in the fish belly (hospital).

Also, army General Mr. Naaman, considered Elisha’s divine instruction for his healing as nonsense. Consider that God may decide to feed you with a Raven instead of Dove (1 Kings 17). God may decide to heal you through water and not laying on of hands (2 Kings 5: 11). He may decide to heal you in dirty river Jordan, instead of high class River Abana or River Pharpar (2 Kings 5: 12-14). I it not possible for heaven to decide to use the  spittle mixed with clay to heal you? (1 Kings 17: 8-9).

There was an anointing service when the Lord told me not to anoint the people with oil like in the past! He said, “Just shake hands with them.” I reluctantly did and  great testimonies started coming in! It pays to serve God even when it seems the most stupid thing to do! As 2017 ends, respond to undeserved blessings with unreserved obedience!

THE LAGOS (LEKKI) MOUNTAIN INTERNATIONAL ANOINTING SERVICE is Saturday October 28th ; TIME: 8am-11.30am. VENUE: Manna Mountain Lekki (CHISCO B/STOP BEHIND OAMDO FILLING STATION) Theme: “AHITHOPHEL MUST DIE! HOUSEHOLD WICKEDNESS MUST DIE” Come with NAMES OF FAMILY MEMBERS and any point of contact. OCTOBER IS YOUR DAY!

Prayer Points: Take song of worship as led. /Because He lives….

1. Repent from any form of disobedience in the past.

2. As 2017 ends, receive grace to obey God totally.

3. Whether the devil likes it or not, I release my life and ministry from every satanic bus-stop. I must rise this year in Jesus name. Pray about today seriously now.

Action Point: What is the Lord asking you to do? (a) Giving money to your church? (2) Fasting and Praying for someone? (3) Call to ministry? (4) Any other issue or instruction? See your pastor and obey or visit the Manna Mountain Lagos this weekend!
