TOPIC OF DAILY MANNA DEVOTIONAL FOR SATURDAY JUNE 8th IS “DON’T TURN GOD’S BLESSING TO A CURSE”

BIBLE TEXT: Ezekiel 16:15-34
15. But thou didst trust in thine own beauty, and playedst the harlot because of thy renown, and pouredst out thy fornication on every one that passed by; his it was.
16. And of thy garments thou didst take, and deckedst thy high places with divers colours, and playedst the harlot thereupon; the like things shall not come, neither shall it be so.
17. Thou hast also taken thy fair jewels of my gold and of my silver, which I had given thee, and madest to thyself images of men, and didst commit whoredom with them,
18. And tookest thy broidered garments, and coveredst them; and thou hast set mine oil and mine incense before them.
19. My meat also which I gave thee, fine flour, and oil, and honey, wherewith I fed thee, thou hast even set it before them for a sweet savour; and thus it was, saith the Lord GOD.
20. Moreover thou hast taken thy sons and thy daughters, whom thou hast borne unto me, and these hast thou sacrificed unto them to be devoured. Is this of thy whoredoms a small matter,
21. That thou hast slain my children, and delivered them to cause them to pass through the fire for them?
22. And in all thine abominations and thy whoredoms thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, when thou wast naked and bare, and wast polluted in thy blood.
23. And it came to pass after all thy wickedness, (woe, woe unto thee! saith the Lord GOD;)
24. That thou hast also built unto thee an eminent place, and hast made thee an high place in every street.
25. Thou hast built thy high place at every head of the way, and hast made thy beauty to be abhorred, and hast opened thy feet to every one that passed by, and multiplied thy whoredoms.
26. Thou hast also committed fornication with the Egyptians thy neighbours, great of flesh; and hast increased thy whoredoms, to provoke me to anger.
27. Behold, therefore I have stretched out my hand over thee, and have diminished thine ordinary food, and delivered thee unto the will of them that hate thee, the daughters of the Philistines, which are ashamed of thy lewd way.
28. Thou hast played the whore also with the Assyrians, because thou wast unsatiable; yea, thou hast played the harlot with them, and yet couldest not be satisfied.
29. Thou hast moreover multiplied thy fornication in the land of Canaan unto Chaldea; and yet thou wast not satisfied herewith.
30. How weak is thine heart, saith the Lord GOD, seeing thou doest all these things, the work of an imperious whorish woman;
31. In that thou buildest thine eminent place in the head of every way, and makest thine high place in every street; and hast not been as an harlot, in that thou scornest hire;
32. But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers instead of her husband!
33. They give gifts to all whores; but thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto thee on every side for thy whoredom.
34. And the contrary is in thee from other women in thy whoredoms, whereas none followeth thee to commit whoredoms; and in that thou givest a reward, and no reward is given unto thee, therefore thou art contrary.
KEY VERSE:
“Thou hast also taken thy fair jewels of my old and of my silver, which I had given thee, and madest to thyself images of men, and didst commit whoredom with them.” – (Ezekiel 16:17).

DAILY MANNA DEVOTIONAL FOR TODAY

Man is the most endowed of all the creations of God. But alas, it is sad to note that instead of using God’s enormous resources at his disposal for his good and His glory, man has turned around to abuse God’s blessings; thus making of them a curse unto him – the reason for the pains and sorrows in many lives.
When Israel had become very influential, she began to use the beauty and blessings God had given to her as a nation to enter into idolatrous relationship with the pagan nations around her. The very silver and gold that was given to her by god was used to make idols she created from her imagination.
She turned the blessings God had given to her to a curse. Pride filled her heart and she became forgetful of God and the covenant promise. Consequently, she began to lose all that she had gradually, until her beauty was turned to ashes; her wealth faded into deep poverty and her liberty and nationhood became lost in captivity.
Many lose sight of the fact that all they possess have been given to them by God. They abuse and misuse His gifts in their lives. Their beauty, talents, riches and wealth have been turned to idols which they worship. They become proud, full of themselves and have no thought about God.
We must understand that whatever we have – be it beauty, skills, talents, riches, etc., all have been given to us by God. When we misuse these gifts, we are bound to suffer the consequences. Does this not explain why man still feels empty and unsatisfied in life in spite of all the wealth, power and fame he has? What should have been blessings to us has turned around to become a bitter curse!
If we are going to enjoy the gifts God has given us, then we must use them the way He intends – for His glory and the benefits of others; and we will see that they will continue to abound.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Don’t turn God’s blessing in your life to a curse!
THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Samuel 8-10
