Our Daily Manna December 28, 2017: ODM devotional: Born Out Of Wedlock: God Is Able!

Topic: Born Out Of Wedlock: God Is Able! [Thursday, December 28, 2017]

Basic Scripture: 2 Samuel 9:1-13

There was a boy born to an unwed mother (born out of wedlock). He had a hard time growing up because everywhere he went, he was always asked question: “Hey boy who’s your daddy?” He and his mother moved to mossy Creek (modern Jefferson City), then New market, and finally t the slums of Knoxville, USA.

His mother was unable to care for her son and placed him in St. John’s Orphanage, operated by the Episcopal Church Due to the social stigma surrounding his birth, this boy struggled as a child. He later wrote that this made him more determined to succeed. In school, he was always hiding at break and lunch times from other students, because he was a laughing stock. When he was 12 years old, a new preacher visited their local church. The boy would always go in late and slip out early to avoid hearing the question, “Who is your daddy?” But one day, the new preacher said the benediction so fast that the boy had no time to escape.

Just about the time he got to the back door, the preacher not knowing anything about him, put his hands n his shoulder and asked him, “Son, who is your daddy?” Those present became deadly quiet; with every eye looking at him. This new, Holy Ghost-led preacher sensing what was going on, quickly said, “Wait a minute! I know who you are! I see the family resemblance now. You are a child of God” With that, he parted the boy in the shoulder and said again. “Boy, you’ve got a great inheritance. Go and claim it.” The boy smiled for the first time and walked out of the door a changed person. Wherever he went, he kept saying: “I know my daddy. I am a child of God.” He became a lawyer and a two term governor of Tennessee State in the USA (1911-1015). His biography was titled, “The Unwanted Boy” and the man was Ben Walter Hooper, born in 1970.

What the Holy Ghost is saying to a user of today’s devotional is against all satanic odds, you must believe in yourself and refuse the opinions of men. You must not write off yourself because God has not finished with you. You can be great or you can be greater than you are now! Mephibosheth rose from grass to grace! He was exalted by the God of Jonathan! That same God can do it for you! You will hear “TALITHA CUMI” and everything stagnant or dead will RISE AGAIN because something awesome is about to happen! Don’t you know that the future – 2018 – is carrying your SPECIAL DECORATION? Trust God! Hold on! Hold out!
