Our Daily Manna : ODM devotional – Life’s Mysteries And Questions

Topic: Life’s Mysteries And Questions

Basic Scripture: Isaiah 3;10-11; Psalm 37:30-40

Rev. (PAPA) Ayo Oritsejafor of the Word of Life Bible Church Warri, Nigeria and who was the former president of the CHRISTIN ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIA, CAN, had a bitter experience many years ago in 1995.

He was travelling from Warri, the oil city, to Benin City, a nearby State Capital for a programme in which he was to minister. He took along some of his key members, including women. Along the way, just before Benin City, there was a fatal motor accident and he lost two of them, one a happily married woman/mother. The other, a man, left behind his wife and children. Now consider the fact that they were going on a mission for the Kingdom and they were obediently following their pastor.

There are questions in this life and they may not have answers till we get to the other side of eternity.

The natural questions however, are: Why did God allow it? Why didn’t God show it to the man of God? What happens to the husband and wife with children left behind? What would the world say about the man of God, etc? Of course, as expected, different stories sprang up from that accident, but God saw that church through that crisis. I remember now that it was Helen Keller, an American poet, political activist and lecturer born on June 27th 1880 who said, “Everything has its wonders – even darkness and silence. I learnt that whatever state I may be in therein, to be content.”

Wow! Don’t forget that she was deaf and blind. She was born with the ability to see and hear. At 19 months old, she contracted an unknown illness described by doctors as “an acute congestion of the stomach and the brain”, which might have been scarlet fever or meningitis. The illness left her both deaf and blind. Yet she became an outstanding soul in her generation till she died on June 1st 1968.

What are you passing through? As 2017 ends, what is it that you have prayed about but are still confused? Jeremiah 31:17 declares… there is hope in thine end.” It shall be said concerning you: “Sweet are the uses of adversity.” As 2018 roars near, see a bright and better tomorrow! Never look back! Keep moving! Keep your eyes on the road! Use your “side mirror” only to avoid trouble! Hold on! Hold out! Look up! Your end will be great!


Prayer Points: Take song because He lives…

1. Proclaim Psalm 37:37many times today. My END shall be great peace and honor! Not shame in Jesus name.

2. As the mountain arise above the plains, so will I rise and shine above any of life’s trial (pray it very well).

3. Pray about today and any matter affecting your peace, then give thanks and wait for your season! BLIND self-pity/DEPRESSION now!
