ODM Daily Devotional November 7, 2017
Perhaps you may stumble, you might even fall, but God is always ready to answer your call. He knows every headache and sees every tear. A Word from His lips can calm every fear. Our sorrow may linger through the night, but suddenly vanishes at the dawn’s early light. The savour is waiting somewhere above, to give you His grace. Whatever your pain, God always sends rainbows after the rain. Is it not wonderful that God can give grace to the humble? Read the cry of the beloved saint below:
“I ask to take my pain away. God said, ‘No.’ It is not for me to take it away, but for you to give it away. I ask God to grant me patience; God said, ‘No.’ Patience is a by-product of tribulations. It isn’t granted, it is earned. I ask God to give me happiness. God said, ‘No.’ I give blessings. Happiness is a choice. Happiness is up to you. I asked for all things that I might enjoy life. God said, ‘No’, I will give you life so that you can enjoy all things.”
No wonder Vs 8 of the first scripture says: ” we are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we perplexed, but not in despair. Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.” Yes! That shall be your testimony at last because: It is pain that leads to gain. Refuse to complain! Hear Martin Luther King Jnr again: “If you can’t fly, run! If you can’t run, walk! If you can’t walk, crawl. But by all means keep moving.” Yes, keep moving, because after the rain, your rainbow will appear to all. Ah!
