Topic: Let Him Make The Difference [DCLM Daily Manna Monday May 21, 2018]
Key Verse: “And he gathered all Judah and Benjamin, and the strangers with them out of Ephraim and Manasseh, and out of Simeon: for they fell to him out of Israel in abundance, when they saw that the LORD his God was with him” (2 Chronicles 15:9)
MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna
It has become very fashionable today for people to follow trends. It appears that there is the fear of being different from the pack. Most people pick up habits, lifestyle and behavior, just following what they see others do. The advent of Information and Communication Technology has made the world to become so shrunk such that vogues get across the world in no time at all.
God sent Prophet Azariah to give King Asa the condition of enjoying His abiding presence and support. Following the instruction of the Lord, he purged the land of idol worship and gathered the people to the Lord. The light of difference that glowed through his life attracted others from neighbouring tribes. They saw in practical sense that God was with him.
We cannot win the world by being like the world. Perhaps, the reason many of us are unable to attract and win our neighbours and colleagues over to the Lord is because they are yet to see the difference between our lives and theirs. The only way we can make the difference in our world that is so filthy and corrupt is by walking so close with God and living by His Word. This will make everyone around take note of this difference and His presence in our lives.
The way we live and go about our daily business should show that we have a meaningful and unique relationship with God and that He is with us. Start today to make that difference. Let God be seen in you. Live as light and salt of the earth. Make the word of God the standard by which you live and conduct all your affairs and not by the popular world norms, customs and practices. When we do these, God will be honoured in our lives and manifested in all that we do for all to see. God in you will make a world of difference. Let him!
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
We cannot win the world by being like the world.
