MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna 29 June 2018
Billionaire founder of Microsoft Corporations, Bill Gates, was criticised by Christians across the globe when he made this comment: “…In terms of allocation of time resources, religion is not very efficient. There’s a lot more I could be doing on a Sunday morning”. To him, going to church on Sunday to worship and serve God in truth and in spirit is a waste of time.
As humans, we try to solve our problems ourselves and keep God away until the situation is aggravated.
When the situation further worsens, and life is now at risk, we begin to cry unto God for deliverance. The people involved in the Bible passage for today appeared to have started a journey attempting to cross the wilderness into a city of habitation without asking for guidance or direction. Missing their way in the vast wilderness, they wandered from place to place, but in their pride and self-confidence, they kept relying on their human intellect until they became hungry and thirsty and their souls fainted within them. That was when they called upon God, who in His mercy delivered and revived them, leading them to the city of habitation. DCLM Daily Manna 29 June 2018
Many people have discovered that their keep-God-away attitude is a recipe for paralysis, because man was created by God and depends on Him for his sustenance. But many times, we want to run our “show” ourselves. We believe going to church and worshipping God is a waste of time. Therefore, we go to work for extra pay on Sundays. We trust in our wisdom, training and money to solve every problem that confronts us until we get into a problem that our money and knowledge cannot solve. We should make God our companion at all times by regularly fellowshipping in His presence and seeking the counsel in His word in every situation we find ourselves.
Thought For The Day: Seek God while He may be found.
