Our Daily Manna Devotional October 22, 2017 THE 100 METERS OR THE MARATHONBasic Scripture: 1 Samuel 13:4-14
Welcome to today’s devotional encounter with Jehovah Rohi, Jehovaah Jireh, Jehovah El Gibbor, Jehovah Shammah, Jehovah Shalom, El Olam, the Defender of His people from shame! Some years ago, in my country, a former Sports Minister, Chief Jim Nwobodo, was once asked why Nigeria never did well in long distance races. His reply was humorous but instructive:


Why should we spend hours chasing a gold medal, when we can win the same gold medal in 10 seconds?” What he meant was that a Nigerian will rather go for the 100 meters gold medal than go through the rigors of competing for over 40 or more kilometers to win a marathon gold medal. The spot community was thrown into shock then, but Nwobodo’s answers capture the mindset of many believers in their approach to life and ministry
Everybody wants the fastest and easiest way out. People prefer a last minute rush than long term and painsta…

Our Daily Manna Devotional October 21, 2017 IF GOD SLOWS YOU DOWN…Basic Scripture: Exodus 2:1-15 
Sam has got just fifteen minutes to get to the stock exchange. If he fails to close this deal, his boss will eat him for dinner! Suddenly, the reckless drunkard driving behind smashes into Sam’s car and everything comes to a standstill. Sam pulls out his mobile phone, flips open the flap and in one swift moment, makes the needed call. Joyce Meyer Later, he begins browsing the web, sufs the net and gets all the information he needs. Sam calls the 


stock exchange again and closes the deal. Accidents do happen, but they would not matter as they say, if you have a Samsung mobile phone, the perfect connection to perfect quality. No! I am not a Samsung agent or dealer! I am just a divine agent, but the summary of the Samsung phone jingle and the Sam story: LIVE ON THE FAST LANE! Yes! Fast cars! Fast money like WESTERN UNION, etc! Fast food! Faster men/women in sports! Increased technology is gr…

Our Daily Manna Devotional October 20, 2017 PATH OF MADNESS Once a public bus driver starts his intolerable antics, he is simply regarded as “mad.” When a young preacher takes the pulpit and with some over-exaggerated gestures, ministers the Word, he is regarded as “mad.” Years ago, at Orlando Florida, I saw a young music artist who had his hair plated as though he was a woman. But more weird was the fact that he had two different hairstyle on, as he thrilled the crowd. He was He was the center of attraction and to many present, he was probably “mad”


However, in everything great people do, the operating word which they always bring to bear is something close to “madness.” Here we are not concerned with psychiatric cases of dinical dimension, but the degree of personal rebellion against the general accepted norm. Sometimes for me to write, I switch into this madness mood.
That is when I rebel against every pain or distraction! I kneel down to write, sometimes I stand to write, sometim…

Basic Scripture: 1 Samuel 18: 1-15 WORLD VIGIL DAY: EVIL EYES MUST GO BLIND TONIGHT! Vs. 9 of today’s Scripture says: “And Saul eyed David from that day and forward.” Saul eyed David, your spiritual grandfather, and there is also a Saul eyeing you today!


 Mt 26: 16 says: “And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.” Judas was looking for an opportunity to betray Jesus! Receive this prophetic word now: Evil opportunity finders shall die!  Those looking for your own fall shall weep! Those looking for your star shall end in darkness! Mk. 12:13 says also: “And they sent unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words.”
Ps. 35;8 says: “Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall.”Those planning to catch you shall fall into their own evil net as 2017 ends! Join all ODM users tonight and pray from 12 midnight – 1am . …

Our Daily Manna Devotional October 18, 2017 WHEN IT DOES NOT MAKE SENSEBasic Scripture: Isaiah 55: 1-10
Most instructions that God will send to you for the lifting of your destiny will never make sense to you at first instance. For example, the Word of God to Abraham (Genesis 15: 1-3); Moses (Exodus 4: 10-14); Joshua (1: 9, 3:15); Joseph (Matt. 1: 19-20); Jeremiah (Jer. 1:6), etc, did not make initially. The word says, “His ways are not our ways, neither are His thoughts our thoughts” (Isaiah 555:8-10). 


When God called great men like late Oral Roberts, the late archbishop Idahosa, the late Lester Sumrall, the late Pastor Akindayomi (RCCG founder), Pastor W.F . Kumuyi, the late Pastor Collins Babalola, etc, it did not make sense then, but it made sense later!
When God called me, tiny little dust – the writer of this devotional, to drop pharmacy as a full time profession and go into ministry, it did not make sense. I disobeyed initially and was struck with Epitasis (bleeding from the n…

Our Daily Manna Devotional October 17, 2017 STAY WITHIN THE NAME! You have probably read or heard of the word: “HEDGE” (Job 1: 8-10). This was the hedge of fire of protection round Job and it is still operating concerning every child of God. As long as you did not leave the hedge yourself, heaven is committed to protect you day and night. Reject the fear of premature death, armed robbery and any other harm as this year ends. Walk DAILY by faith in the fact that there is a hedge around you. Our Daily Manna


The Word says, “Through knowledge shall the just be delivered” – Proverb 11: 9. Sleep and wake up with the knowledge that there is a hedge around you. But note this: The easiest way of killing a fish is to take it out of the water! If the devil is trying to hurt you or your family, the first thing he will do is to take you out of the hedge or the presence of God. Satan knows you will die a natural /spiritual death, once you are out of the hedge. BASIC SCRIPTURE PSALM 91 As long as you…

Our Daily Manna Devotional October 16, 2017 A  ROUGH BUT SURE ROAD! Welcome to today’s devotional encounter again! Below is the webbed poem that discusses the mystery journey to success. By the grace of God, you will arrive there in a great way:


“The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called failure. A loop called confusion. Speed bumbs called friends. Red light called enemies. Caution lights called family. You will have flat tyre called disappointments, but if you have a spare tyre called determination, an engine called perseverance, insurance called faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called success.
BASIC SCRIPTURES: MATTHEW 26: 38 - 44; PSALM 23 
Thank God for this encouraging piece! The emphasis is that success is a journey and not just a destination. It is a process. So, no devil and indeed nobody can say it is over with you! No matter where you are in the ladder of life, remember that God have not finished with you yet. You are God’s man/woma…

Our Daily Manna Devotional October 15, 2017 CALL YOURSELF TO ORDER!Basic Scripture: Genesis 3: 1-24
Indeed Aristotle said: “I count him braver who conquers his desires than him who conquers his enemies: for the hardest victory is the victory over self.”Most people cannot control their weight, appetite, temper, sleep, etc, and they blame the devil for that.


You do not always cast out the devil a as solution to problems. For example, concerning food, you make up your mind and say things like: “I will go on a diet plan.” Concerning your spouse, believe and say things like: “I will not beat my wife” or “I will not be disrespectful to my husband again.” These are acts from your God-given powerful human will. You must believe that by the grace of God, you can do all things. You can stop adultery and fornication!
 Flee! You can lose some weight again, if you so desire! Control your food intake and exercise regularly! Be disciplined! Remember what made Adam and Eve to lose their inheritance …
