Topic: Find A Reason To Sing! [DCLM Daily Manna 13 January 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi]
Text: Exodus 4:27-31 (KJV)
Key Verse: “I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me” (Psalm 13:6).
It is usually difficult for most people to sing and praise God when they go through difficulties or disappointments in life. But not so with David. At the moment in his life, he sounded utterly exhausted and unable to bear his afflictions anymore. He was hopeless and helpless. It was as if God had abandoned him: He had been silent despite his incessant prayers and petitions. These were the realities surrounding him, David still found a reason to trust God rather than doubt and sink in despair. What really encouraged him to praise God? He remembered God’s mercies and bountiful dealings with him in the past. Remembered that God loved him and he decided to trust in the steadfastness of His love. Though he was yet to see an immediate respite to his sufferings, he knew His love would never fail. This gave him a reason to sing.
Regardless of our circumstances, we must appreciate the fact that God loves us. And because He does, He thinks and cares about our circumstances. Never mind that it may appear He is far away and does not seem to hear your cries. Never mind it may seem the enemy is about overrunning you. Instead, think about the ways He has shown His love to you in times past. Think about your salvation and the numerous mercies and grace you have received in the past. The present won’t to be different because God’s love is steadfast and unchanging.
So, join the Psalmist today to “…sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with (you)”.
Thought For The Day: God’s love for His own will never fail!.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
