Our Daily Manna November 21, 2017: ODM devotional – Tears: Raw Materials For Triumph!

Topic — Tears: Raw Materials For Triumph! [Tuesday, November 21, 2017]

Basic Scriptures: 2 Corinthians 2:3-14

When I was a child and my grandmother died, I could not understand why my eyes were dry. But that night, as my Dad tried to lighten the mood with some tickling at bedtime, my giggles turned to tears, to my horror and belief. So it came as no surprise to learn that researchers believe that crying and laughing come from the same part of the brain. Just as laughing has health benefits (lowers blood pressure and boosts the immune system), scientist are discovering that crying has as well!

The survey carried out at the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, a private university in Daytona beach, Florida, U.S.A, showed that 85% of women and 73% of men reported feeling better after crying. Tears enable self-discovery. Sometimes, we don’t even know we are upset till we cry. Apart from acting as a stress reliever sometimes, tears attract help from other people. People become milder and less aggressive and they are more likely to provide support and comfort. Holding back tears of anger or grief/bitterness can be bad for our bodies. It leads to high blood pressure, heart problems and even cancer.

As 2017 ends and 2018 travel nearer, may your life be full of joy and your days with pleasure! But heaven’s emphasis to you today is that God will turn whatever situation you are in, to your good. The last word concerning your life is not with the devil but with God! Rejoice! There is a mystery in the cross as a route to the throne! There is a mystery of affliction giving birth to glory ( 2 Cor. 4:17)!

There is a mystery of pain producing power! There is a mystery of tears provoking triumph ( 2 Cor. 2:4)! You may not understand why God allows the tears, but understand this (Vs.14): God will ALWAYS cause you to triumph –even through thorns and tears! If you are patient, I see people celebrating you- soon! Yes! Very soon in Jesus Christ name! Hold on! Look up!
