Our Daily Manna daily devotional by Bishop Dr. Chris Kwakpovwe for today is here. Digest the word of the lord and pray believing in his promises.
TOPIC OF OUR DAILY MANNA FOR TUESDAY 13TH AUGUST IS “THE NINE WORDS THAT CHANGED AN ORPHAN!!”
Basic scripture: Ephesians 4:20-29
A successful businessman told the story of Jim, a little orphan boy who had just a little dog for a possession. He was 12 years old, slim and undersized. He never remembered having a kind word ever spoken to him in his whole life. He was always ‘hit’ with harsh words, insults, jestings, suspicions and as a result, he became a shrinking, pitiful little figure, dodging people.
One day as Jim was running with his dog, he saw some bundles of wrapped clothes fall off the hand of an old tailor in the town. He stopped and helped her pick up every bit. The woman looked at him with a broad smile and said:
THANK YOU DEAR, YOU ARE A NICE LITTLE BOY,” and went on her way.
He went to the riverside and washed up. Then he looked again. He was looking neater! He stood erect and looked up straight for the first time! A feeling of self-respect arose within his being! Ambition sprang full-blown into his life! At that moment by that riverside, he determined that this NICE LITTLE BOY would be a great man – all because of 9 words of encouragement!
The businessman ended his story by telling the dinner audience: “Ladies and Gentlemen, I am that boy” as total silence (the power of God) enveloped that room!
As I write this devotional in this second half of 2019, I feel that same power all over me and I sense that God is speaking to a user of today’s devotional: Kind Words Generate Power That Can Affect A Generation!
Every day of this 2nd half of 2019, sow kind words as a seed into a Soul! Our kind words will transform a staff, a child, a spouse, a pastor, your boss, etc. Read today’s scripture again and never forget: “To the world, you might be one person, but to one person, you might be the world.” You will move from STORY to GLORY! Hold on and hold out!
PRAYER POINTS: Take any song of worship as led now.
1. Pray about today’s word as led.
2. Repent from using ACIDIC words on others in your past!
