Topic: Connecting For Progress
[DCLM Daily Manna 6 May 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi]
Text: Job 22:21-30 (KJV)
Key Verse: “Acquiant now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee” (Job 22:21).
In the last four lines of the first stanza of the hymn titled, “What a Friend we have in Jesus”, Joseph Scriven captured the agony of man’s disconnect with God when he wrote, “…Oh, what peace we often forfeit. Oh, what needless pain we bear. All because we do not carry everything to God in prayers”. Many suffer in penury and want when there is a pool of abundance for them. They groan needlessly in pain when there is a provision for soothing balm. They wander aimlessly in the maze of life when there is Someone who can show the way. The main reason is the failure to connect to the true Source of help.
The text clearly explains in a down to earth manner, the basis of connecting with God and the benefits that accrue to our connection with Him. Christ is the only link between God and man. He is the genuine problem-Solver because He links us with God, the Source of all things. Only those who approach Him for help will be able to draw from His unlimited resources because He is omnipotent, benevolent and good.
Whatever you may be going through, no matter how hard the road you are treading may be, there is hope for you that your sins can be forgiven, your poverty can turn to wealth, your sickness to health, your sorrow to joy, your pain to gain, if you will be ready to pay the price.
Return to the Almighty, receive “the law from His mouth”, repent by putting “away iniquity far from thy tabernacle” and your turnaround to salvation, prosperity, provision, protection, power through prayers will begin. Why not now?
