Our Daily Manna 25 November 2018 – JOHN NEWTON: THE SONG

Our Daily Manna 25 November 2018


Basic Scripture: 2 Corinthians: 4: 7-18

“I was born in 1752, died 1807. The only godly influence I can remember was my mother, whom I had for only seven years. When she left through death, I was virtually an orphan. My father remarries and sent me to a strict military school, where the severity of discipline almost broke my back. I could not stand it anymore, so I fled in rebellion at the age of ten.

Our Daily Manna 25 November 2018

I joined a ship going to Africa. There I stole rum and was almost drunk. I made up my mind to sin to my fill without restrain. Once in the ship as I was drinking, the sailor (captain of the ship) beat me and threw me down below within the ship cabinet. I lived only on stale bread for weeks. I lived with a scar on my side, big enough for me to put my fist into. In the midst of all these, to keep the ship afloat, I worked along as a servant of the slaves that were being transported. There bruise and confused, bleeding and degraded, I remembered the words of my mother about God’s grace. I cried out to God for His grace and His mercy.

God heard me and changed my life. When the ship landed, I married a childhood sweetheart and entered the ministry. Crowds often gathered to hear my testimony of salvation. I was led of God just before my death to put my story in words/a hymn/song. My name is John Newton. The song is: Amazing Grace How Sweet the Sound.”

Wonderful Jesus! No wonder Vs 8 of today’s Word (KJV) says: “We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed…” Yes! Every allowed trouble including even your mistakes are not for distress (great pain) but for great gain! Con you imagine such a powerful/popular song that has blessed million of souls on earth was born from adversity/pain? What the Holy Ghost is saying to a user of today’s devotional is: “God is able to bring great good through the difficult seasons of your life.”
