DCLM Daily Manna 1 November 2018 – Danger Through Delay

Topic: Danger Through Delay
[DCLM Daily Manna 1 November 2018 Daily Devotional by Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi] Text: 2 Samuel 20:1-13 (KJV)

Key Verse: “So Amasa went to assemble the men of Judah: but he tarried longer than the set time which he had appointed him“ (2 Samuel 20:5).


After David overcame the rebellion of his son Absalom, who died shamefully, another uprising led by Sheba, came up. Sheba, the son of Bichri, led all Israel except Judah, to turn their backs against David.

Seeing the evil ploys of Sheba, David quickly called and instructed Amasa his nephew, who earlier pitched his tent with Absalom in his revolt, to assemble for him the men of Judah within three days and return to him. Amasa had just been appointed by David as commander-in-chief of his army to replace Joab who incurred the wrath of David for killing Absalom.

Amasa’s delay in assembling the soldiers of Judah within three days, made David to send Abisai, another faithful soldier to run after Sheba and dislodge him with his supporters. On hearing this, Joab joined the troop with a seemingly innocuous intention of pursuing Sheba. Eventually, he met Amasa, and he murdered him as a result of his bitterness, envy and jealousy. Amasa’s life could have been spared perhaps, had he not delayed.

There is danger in delay or procrastination. Whatever God asks believers to do should be done faithfully and with prompt obedience.

There is time for everything on earth. What you are to do today should not be delayed till tomorrow. No wonder Jesus said, “I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work”. When running errands or rendering services for God, we should make haste to get it done as specified. Remember that people who procrastinate can never serve God satisfactorily.

Thought For The Day: Delay in rendering service to God is as damnable as outright disobedience.

Bible Reading In One Year: Matthew 20-21
