Our Daily Manna Devotional September 11th 2017

WHAT THE INSPECTOR GENERAL SAID THEN!

I remember vividly some years ago, a popular story in my country. After seven months of intense legal battle, fought with intrigue and high drama, a former Inspector General of the Nigeria police (Names withheld), who had been in the dock for criminal activities bordering on corrupt enrichment, was finally jailed for 6 months. 

Our Daily Manna Devotional September 11th 2017


Our concern in today’s devotional is not on the fall of the man. After all, mere mortals fall. You and I have our own weaknesses! Our aim is not to condemn the man! After all, if God should mark iniquity, who will stand? (Ps. 130: 3). Hear St. Augustine again: Never hate the man who account of his fault; nor love the fault because of the man, but hate the fault and love the man.”
So, as a believer you must never judge others but out concern today is on powerful statement made by the man as he went to prison: “I will serve the jail term. I will serve it. But all I know is that the permanent feature of life is that it is full of ups and downs. At a time, I was up the ladder, now it is reverse. By the grace of God I will bounce back.”

BASIC: 1 SAMUEL 13: 1-10


I fill like jumping from this writing table because the words “I was up the ladder … I will bounce back” are like fire on my bones. God want you to know that you are what you are by His grace. Many who were up there are down today. Please use whatever position you have, to serve God and man because there is always a payday! Can you imagine Saul boasting with the victory of Jonathan? See today’s Basic Scripture again! Saul was in obscurity when God raised him up. He was unknown when God granted him victory over the Amorites, but then he took his own trumpets and blew his own trumpet. No wonder he lost the throne!

God want you never to fight for any position because except the Lord lifts you, you will come down! Did Saul not come down? Hear John Buchan: “Don’t forget the Chinese proverb: “He who is great, must make humility his base; Never forget that millions are in the cemetery who thought the world would stop without them. Be humble! You are dusty!

PRAYER POINTS: Take any song of worship as led.
1.       Thank God for today’s word and pray as you are led.
2.       Pray about your life and position in life. Surrender all to God. Ask for the grace to serve others.
3.       Pray in the morning, afternoon and evening of today’s prayer points

4.       Pray any other prayer (s) as led.
