TOPIC: When God Closes the Door to that King/Queen!
BASIC SCRIPTURE: Acts 7:17-29(KJV)
17 But when the time of the promise drew nigh, which God had sworn to Abraham, the people grew and multiplied in Egypt,
18 Till* another king arose, which knew not Joseph.
19 The same dealt subtilly with our kindred, and evil entreated our fathers, so that they cast out their young children, to the end they might not live.
20 In which time Moses was born, and was exceeding fair, and nourished up in his father’s house three months:
21 And when he was cast out, Pharaoh’s daughter took him up, and nourished him for her own son.
22 And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds.
23 And when he was full forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren the children of Israel.
24 And seeing one of them suffer wrong, he defended him, and avenged* him that was oppressed, and smote the Egyptian:
25 For he supposed his brethren would have understood how that God by his hand would deliver* them: but they understood not.
26 And the next day he shewed himself unto them as they strove, and would have set them at one again, saying, Sirs, ye are brethren; why do ye wrong one to another?
27 But he that did his neighbour wrong thrust him away, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge over us?
28 Wilt* thou kill me, as thou diddest the Egyptian yesterday?
29 Then fled Moses at this saying, and was a stranger in the land of Madian, where he begat two sons.
Our Daily Manna Today 22 September 2021 ODM Devotional Message:
Vs. 18 of today’s scripture says: “Till another king arose, which knew not Joseph.” This is a common scripture! The summary is that indeed, Joseph and all his historical achievements were forgotten. There arose a generation that did not remember the good he did. And the Holy Ghost’s “divine capsule” for you today is: KINGS (those in authority, helpers, those you look up to, those you trust, etc,) ARE HUMAN AND THEY CAN CHANGE! Therefore LOOK NOT TO THEM FOR YOUR HELP! God can use them but always remember that THEY CAN FAIL YOU AT ANY TIME!
No wonder David remembered Joseph and he was led to write in Psalm 121: 1 – 3: “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy (my) foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee (me) will not slumber.”
Then Jeremiah 17: 5 says: “Thus saith the LORD; ‘Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and m a k e t h f l e s h h i s a r m , a n d w h o s e h e a r t d e p a r t e t h f r o m t h e L O R D . ” It’s easy for your heart to depart from the LORD GRADUALLY when you are looking up to a man or woman and THAT IS WHY IT IS A CURSE!
Vs. 6 of Jeremiah 17 describes anybody LOOKING TO KINGS or QUEENS or indeed any man/woman – “For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.”
See Verses 7-8 for what will happen to you when you trust the LORD. Use today’s devotional to repent and determine not to be angry with any friend, man or woman who has withdrawn support for you. Look to the immortal KING of kings and not to mortal kings!
