Our Daily Manna October 27, 2017: ODM devotional – “Is Anything Too Hard For Me?”

Topic: “Is Anything Too Hard For Me?” [Friday, October 27, 2017]

Basic Scripture: Jeremiah 32:17-28

Years ago, a woman in Lagos Island, Nigeria, jumped off the window of the top floor of a four-story building to end the controversy over her unwanted pregnancy. The lady, a fashion designer apprentice at that time, took the decision to commit suicide due to the frustration and disappointment she suffered from the hands of her ‘lover. The so-called  ‘lover,’  denied ownership of the pregnancy, while the parents of the lady kept pressing her daily to let them know the owner of the pregnancy or face expulsion from home.

The lady went to the ‘lover’s house to placate him, only to meet another lady suspected to be a rival, with the man. As the man escorted the visitor out, the lady took the decision to jump out of window. She landed on a high-tension electrical wire and was electrocuted before her body hit the tarred road. What do you call that? Suicide! Recently, I was outside Nigeria and I read the following headlines in the country where I was: “Man commit suicide for fear of losing lover,” “Teacher commits suicide in public toilet,” “Female Cop killed herself because of heartbreak,” “Man, 50, commits suicide after being denied sex,” Man, 32, commits suicide over 50 dollars dept.” I nearly became depressed over these news items, but I asked myself: “Why are suicide cases increasing all over the world? Is there anything too hard for God”

And the Holy Ghost is asking you right now: “What is it that can make you commit suicide?” Hear this: Death is a spirit and thoughts of death are demonic! Resist them as 2017 ends and 2018 begins! Never allow any problem (present or future) to frustrate you to a state of depression, self-pity or suicide. God is great and He can do anything! (Jer. 32:27). Don’t desire to die! You need to wait! Like drugs, every problem has an expiry date! If you die before the solution comes, then who will celebrate you in the grave and hell? No, life will not defeat you.

Keep –hoping for the best. Trust the Lord. Job said, “Though He slays me, yet will I trust Him, but I will maintain my own ways before Him” (Job 13:15). No matter how many years you have waited refuse to give up now! Your sun will shine again. Why die in the clouds while the rainbow is around the corner? Abraham Lincoln said, “It is difficult to make a man miserable while he feels he is worthy of himself and claims connections to the great God who made him.” Boldly declare several times now: “Devil, you are a liar! As 2017 ends, my life cannot be wasted! My God is the Almighty! I shall not cry, but trust!” Amen!
