Our Daily Manna December 10, 2017: ODM devotional – What Ghandi Said…

Topic: What Ghandi Said… [Sunday, December 10, 2017]

Basic Scripture: Psalm 119:57-67

Years ago, a company in the USA started delivering the Word of God as a reminder for daily prayers. Alan Westenberg  said, “It began with a promise to pray for each other at 3 o’clock every day. I kept forgetting to do it, so being a computer person, I programmed a machine to send a reminder Psalm to my wife and myself every day. Soon, friends and family started asking if they could join and today, It has grown and reaching out to millions all over the world.”

What was a disadvantage led to an advantage. Also, today, you can get various versions of the Bible in your phone. So, dear child of God, there is no excuse whatsoever anymore, why your knowledge based on the Word of God should not grow. David said, “…give me understanding that I may learn thy commandments. In this age of internet, video, audio, books are now digital Bible technology, lack of knowledge or busy schedule excuses should become history I your life. Hear what former, most powerful men in the world (American president) speak about the Bible you carry: “Within the covers of the Bible are the answers for all the problems men face”

(Ronald Reagan). “Take all you can of this Book upon reason, and the balance of faith, and you will live and die a happier man” (Abraham Lincoln said this when a skeptic expressed surprise to see him reading a Bible). Oh, hear the great Dwight Lyman Moody: “Out of 100 men, one will read the Bible; the other 99 will read the Christian.” Be in that 1%. Hear a non-Christian, Mahatma Gandhi:

“You Christians look after a document containing enough dynamite to blow all civilization to pieces, turn the world upside down and bring peace to a battle-torn planet. But you treat it as though it is nothing more than a piece of literature.”

Wow! As 2017 ends, and 2018 begins, conquer laziness and begin reading and studying the Word afresh. You could do a study on a topic you don’t quite understand, for example, the Blood of Jesus, power, holiness or just read the books till you finish your Bible. Many books can inform! Only the Bible can transform! Fall in love with your Bible again. Remember what Mahatma Gandhi said!

TODAY IS THE ANNUAL ODM (INTERNATIONAL) THANKSGIVING FOR THE YEAR 2017.

Prayer Points: Take any song of worship as led.

1. Thank God for the word today. Repent from laziness!

2. Believe God for the grace to finish your Bible as soon as possible.

3. Ask for the grace to be disciplined enough to study your Bible afresh DAILY this year and in the upcoming year 2018.

4. Decree that despite your busy schedule, you will stay with the Word again. The era of excuses is over! Pray about today
