Topic: Do Not Fret [DCLM Daily Manna 31 January 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi]
Text: Isaiah 7:1-9 (KJV)
Key Verse: “Thus saith the Lord GOD, it shall not stand, neither shall it come to pass” (Isaiah 7:7).
Since the coming of the social media, many more people appeared to have died of heartaches and unnecessary fear through the misuse of such channel. Every day, people post all manner of heart-rending pieces of information through the social media, many of which are outright falsehood. Thus, people’s hearts are failing them; many die as a result of fear.
At this time in the history of the Northern Kingdom of Israel, the people had fallen far away from God that they made a league with Syria to fight against Judah. Despite the gang-up, God sent Isaiah to King Ahaz to tell him, “…take heed, and be quiet; fear not, neither be fainthearted…” it was a time to remain calm in the face of an alliance of two nations that sought to conquer Jerusalem.
God also challenged Ahaz by saying, “if ye will not believe, surely ye shall not be established”. This was an opportunity for him to call on Ahaz to believe what He was saying through His prophet, Isaiah. If he did not believe, he would be taken out.
The days we live in are dangerous; fears lurk within and without. There are many events and happenings that threaten people’s faith. Families are going through searing poverty; diseases and infirmities are wrecking havoc on many people. News of retrenchment, economic recessions, massacres and of impending wars have become a routine.
As believers, we are encouraged never to lose faith in the midst of all challenges. Instead, we should continue to look unto God, the Author and Finisher of our faith. Whatever is the situation, once God has given His assurances, we must take it as final.
Thought For The Day: Only divine assurances are potent enough to bring hope.
Bible Reading In One Year: Matthew 6-7
