Our Daily Manna August 12, 2017: ODM devotional – I Am Too Down To Be Grateful To God


Do you know that the bigger the star, the bigger the scar?

Topic: I Am Too Down To Be Grateful To God [Saturday 12 August, 2017]

(2 Corinthians 4:1-18)

I receieved the mail below from a user of this devotional sometime ago, and I am being led to use it again to reach souls in similar situations:

“Dear Pastor Chris, I am the sister who called you two months ago. Today is my fourth marriage anniversary and I do not want to continue the marriage in such auster ( difficult) conditions. All my income has been invested in trying to raise my husband financially but everything has gone down the drain. I loathe him, despise him and blame him in my heart. Please, my family needs deliverance! Please get in touch with me before a child of God /Pastor’s wife commits the unthinkable. I am too down to be grateful to God.”

Oh, when I read this sincere mail, then, my hearty ‘bled’ within. I saw in the spirit, a sincere woman expressing an outburst of agony in the midst of the battles of life. I saw a woman after God’s heart, who had been bruised and battered by the inevitable battles of life. Oh! A Pastor’s wife! As I read that mail, 2 Cor. 4:1 struck my spirit: “Therefore seeing we have the ministry, we faint not.” Do you know that every child of God has a ministry and Satan is sad about that? He will do all he can to drop arrows of frustration through any means – sickness, delayed marriage or child bearing, financial blockades, betrayal by friends, slow ministry growth, disappointments, serious marital heartaches or rebellious children, etc. The truth is, as long as you have a ministry received by mercy, then the gates of hell are in confusion/ anger because of you. Do you know that the bigger the star, the bigger the scar? Do you know that the bigger the ministry, the bigger the misery?

Do you know that it is wounds that birth wisdom? God is saying to a user of today’s devotional: “No matter the attacks and even when the breakthrough delay defies explanation, refuse to faint.” In all things, give thanks! In all circumstances, hold on and wait for that which God will do in His due season! Don’t be too down to be grateful because Satan meant something worse for you! Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Pray for me, Dr Chris, against a blackmailing syndicate that is determined to “pull down” this vision if I don’t give them money and a house. The battle is the Lord’s! Also, some journalists who claim to be from Sahara Reporters and other sites send me daily texts asking for money or they would publish “sensational stories” about me! My hands are EVER CLEAN BY HIS GRACE and the LORD will CONTEND with them! PRAY FOR ME DAILY! SCATTER THEIR GANG-UP- AGAINST ODM! See page 53 and read more!

Prayer Points: Take any song of worship.

1. Pray the morning and evening devotional prayers . Pray for the discouraged today. Pray any other prayers as led.

2. Pray for the sister used in this write-up that God will perfect all that concerns her.

3. Pray about today seriously as led now. Men shall not tell you “SORRY”.

- 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.

What is your response?

If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
