Our Daily Manna October 20, 2017: ODM devotional – Path Of Madness

Topic: Path Of Madness [Friday, October 20, 2017]

Basic Scripture: 2 Corinthians 12:5-7; John 10:19-39

Once a public bus driver starts his intolerable antics, he is simply regarded as “ mad.” When a young preacher takes the pulpit and with some over-exagerated gestures, ministers the Word, he is regarded as “mad.” Years ago, at Orlando Florida, I saw a young music artist who had his hair plaited as though he was a woman. But more weird was the fact that he had two different hairstyles on, as he thrilled the crowd. He was the center of attraction and to many present, he was probably “mad.” However, in everything great people do, the operative word which they always bring to bear is something close to “madness.”

Here, we are not concerned with psychiatrics cases of clinical dimension, but the degree of personal rebellion against the general accepted norm. Sometimes for me to write, I switch into this madness mood. That is when I rebel against every pain or distraction! I kneel down to write, sometimes I stand to write, sometimes, I lie down to write, and at such times, the GRACE and FLOW is awesome! Great men have always been people society consider to be “mad.” Hosea 9:7 says: “The prophet is fool. The Spiritual man is Mad.” To walk with or for God, you must walk like a madman! Noah seemed mad to his generation!

A seventy year-old man called Abraham was considered mad to move his household from the known ( the land of his fathers) to the unknown ( an unseen Promised Land). Elijah/Elisha lived abnormal lives! They were considered mad by their generation! No wonder Aristotle said, “there was never a great genius without a tincture of madness.” The friends of Jesus considered Him as mad (John 10:20). Paul was declared a mad man (Acts 26:24)! Refuse to follow the crowd! Be different if you must! Refuse to follow your five senses. Choose walk by faith – the sixth sense. Take actions based on the Word of God, which defy your brain. Men may consider you as mad, but only mad men are celebrated by their generation! Refuse to conform, because conformity is the jailer of dreams!

Please never forget what Jim Rohn said: “Success lies in the opposite direction of the normal pull.” Be different! Shout 12 Halleluyahs and pray now!

THE LAGOS (LEKKI) MOUNTAIN INTERNATIONAL ANOINTING SERVICE is NEXT Saturday October 28th; TIME: 8am-11:30 am. Theme: “AHITOPHEL MUST DIE! HOUSEHOLD WICKEDNESS MUST DIE!” Come with NAME OF FAMILY MEMBERS and any point of contact.

Prayer Points: Take Song 2: I need thee……..

1. I receive grace and determine to walk by faith and not by sight in Jesus Christ name.

2. Lord, make me different in my generation (pray it very well). Pray in Tongues today a lot!

3. Lord, move me forward and upward today in Jesus Chris name. I refuse to please society or men. Lord, radically make me a blessing! Declare often: “The spiritual man is mad! As 2017 ends, I walk by faith, not by sight.”
