THE DRUNKEN MAN: NEVER QUIT!

The late Dr Ken McFarland loved to always tell this popular, funny but inspirational story which I am sure you must have heard at one time or the other. I am led to use it today:


Our Daily Manna Devotional September 30 2017

"A man who worked for 6 pm (night shift)-6am normally walked home through the local town cemetery as a short-cut to his home. One night, as he was walking through the same regular route, he did not realize that during the day, a fresh grave had been dug in the very center if his path. He stepped right into the grave and started struggling to get out. His best effort failed him. He decided to relax there till the morning when help would come. Just some few minutes later, a drunken man also using that shortcut, fell into the same grave hole.

BASIC SCRIPTURES: PROVERB 4: 20-26; PSALM 121: 1-2

The drunken man fought desperately to climb out, crawling at the sides. The first man in the grave held the leg of the drunk and said, "Hey my friend, you cant get out of here." But the shocker was the drunker-ed got out to the surprise of the man that had been in the grave. What heaven is sending me to tell you is that you must never accept "No" for an answer from life!

Heaven is telling you that you must never surrender to discouragement, depression or defeat in the battle of life. God is telling someone to pray one more time, trust one more time and "still look to the hills (God) from whence cometh your help." Yes, life could be hard/ dreary and some battles are fierce/bloody, but your determination will get you out.

Take God at His Word and never give up! Read Psalms 37: 23-26; 138: 6-8. Today's 1st scripture Vs 25 says: "Let thine eyes look right on." That's talking about never looking back, never giving up, never quitting! Oh, listing to the admonition of Sarah Bradbury:

"When you feel you've pushed your life to the limit and you can't go any further, give that obstacle one last push because that might be the one that gets you through that heavy door to success! If you don't try that one last time, you may never know. Go for it!" That was the secret of the drunken man! You will end the year well in JESUS NAME

PRAYER POINTS: Take any song of worship as led.

1. Thank God for today's word and pray as you are led.
2. Ask for the grace to hold on.
3. Jehovah! Jehovah!! Help me not to loose your divine timing. Let the world know that you are at work in me, O Lord.
4. Pray any other prayer(s) as led.
