Our Daily Manna December 2, 2017: ODM devotional – Why Me Lord? - 1

Topic: Why Me Lord? -1 [Saturday, December 2, 2017]

Basic Scriptures: 1 Peter 4:2; 12-19

Welcome to our devotional encounter with heaven again. Many people are unable to accept why God can sometimes ‘permit’ suffering even though He did not permit it. In the process, many fall into grave doubt and confusion.

A Jewish scholar, David Wolf Silverman, once wrote: “If Gog is to be intelligible in some manner, then His goodness must be compatible with the existence of evil and this is only if He is not all powerful.” And he was wrong! Others, unable to explain why even believers sometimes suffer, have gone to the extent of denying the existence of suffering or satan. Hear this: “If sin, sickness and death were understood as nothingness, they would disappear.” Can you imagine Mary Baker declared further: “Evil and suffering are illusions (false beliefs) and have no real basis.” Amazing! Yet to others, God has lost control of the affairs of man and the world.

Some have claimed that since God is all-powerful, He must be ultimately responsible for all the suffering going around the world. None of the above is correct! 1 Peter 4:12 declared without apologies: “Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you as though some strange thing happen to you.” Note the words, “not strange” and “fiery”. That means suffering and battles are not strange and sometimes, they could be fiery (very harsh): the purest of saints, Abraham, Moses, and Daniel passed through trials! Elisha, Elijah and other prophets were tried.

All religions on earth today, no matter how blind they are, agree that trials are the process of purification. In this last month of 2017, stop asking questions that have no immediate answers and resist discouragement! Wait on the Lord in any trial or delay! It may be harsh now but will be hallow tomorrow! You are coming out better because; clouds of testing can be showers of blessings!

End of 2017 is not the end of your destiny! Oh! I see 2018 and I have just been informed again by your God that 2018 is your SPECIAL YEAR F DECORATION! Lots more concerning your 2018 DECORATION in the next ODM! Hold on and Hold out! Pray now!
