MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna
There is no middle course to a life. One will either live by faith or by sight governed by the dictates of sensual judgments. You either possess a faith mentality or rely on sensual capacity. Either choice will definitely impact positively or negatively on your destiny.
King Saul took it upon himself to offer a sacrifice, which he was not permitted to do, because he saw the people scatter from him when Prophet Samuel’s arrival delayed. The consequence of his action was that there would be no kings from his lineage anymore.
Many believers today, out of fear and desperation, take costly steps and impulsive decisions. Faced by some threatening circumstances, they easily lose faith and confidence in God to the point of seeking solutions from unimaginable quarters. Thus, they complicate their cases. We must understand that there is no triumph without challenges. Only those who stick to God in faith will always sing the victor’s song.
The presence of challenges in one’s life currently does not invalidate the authenticity of God’s word concerning him/her. King Saul forgot this fact and thus, landed himself in trouble. He also forgot that challenges are to prove that God’s word is reliable.
The devil does not contest a life without treasures. He may try to frustrate you in various forms. Do not fear or run. If you patiently hide under the banner of our Lord Jesus Christ, you are safe.
Thought For The Day: They that wait upon the Lord shall not make haste.
