DCLM Daily Manna, Thursday February 19, 2015 by Pastor Kumuyi – God is ever present

Topic: God is ever present [Thursday February 19, 2015]

Text: Psalm 3:1-8

Key Verse: “I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah” (Psalm 3:4).

One of the most moving testimonies about the unfailing help of God in time of need for a believer is that of the widow whose home was invaded by enemy soldiers.

The troops had overrun the territory where she lived. They stormed her residence and, in military fashion, demanded food. Being an unwavering believer in Christ’s promise (I am with you always Matthew 28:20) she did not panic, but went ahead to prepare what the soldiers wanted and set the table.

Inviting them to feast, she told the military men that it was her tradition to pray and read the Bible before meals. She read from Psalm 27 and closed her eyes for prayer. While she communicated with God, she heard footsteps of heavy boots. Opening her eyes after praying, the woman found herself alone in the hall. The threatening soldiers had left!

It is obvious the word of God in 1 Corinthians 1:27,28 that “…God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things that are mighty and base things of the world and things which are despised hath God chosen, yea and things which are not; to bring to nought things that are” have been perfectly fulfilled.

When King David found himself in a big trouble following Absalom’s rebellion, he cried to God for deliverance. The Lord did not fail him in order to prove He answers the prayer of faith of believers who trust in Him.

God wants His children to call upon Him in times of trouble so that He can destabilize the enemy by His mighty power and fulfil His promises in our lives. It is the demonstration of such divine authority that will cause the unbeliever to know that we serve a God who can be trusted unlike idols that cannot save.
