Our Daily Manna August 15 2019


Basic scripture: GENESIS 16: 1-14

Oh, welcome and don’t be scared about the words, “THE COBRA EFFECT!” The Cobra Effect is a term in Economics.
It refers to a situation when an attempted solution to a problem makes the problem worse! Our Daily Manna August 15 2019 – THE COBRA EFFECT

Our Daily Manna August 15 2019

This name was coined from an incident in old colonial India. For some reasons, there were too many dangerous cobras in Delhi, India. People were dying due to snake bites! The government then decided that a silver coin would be given to anyone who killed a cobra. The results were great; a large number of snakes were killed for the silver coin reward. Eventually, however, it led to some serious, unwanted consequences.

After a short-term drop in the snake (cobra) population, it started rising again! This was because a few people began to breed cobras in order to get the silver cash reward. When the news reached the government, the reward program was scrapped! As soon as the reward of the silver coin was scrapped, those cobra breeders set the now worthless snakes free.

As a result, the cobra population further increased. The solution to the problem made the situation even worse!
Did you get that? The Holy Ghost wants you to avoid the COBRA EFFECT as it affects your life, family and ministry! Take time to pray over every major decision you intend to make, otherwise, a good decision can become your bus-stop of tears and regrets!

Papa ABRAHAM and Mama Sarah had a good intention of desiring to hear the cry of a child in their home! But that decision produced ISHMAEL – the grandfather of the Arabs (Vs 12 says “And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him)! Wow! A wild generation from a wrong decision! Most of the most brutal bloody wars in the world today, which has consumed so many babies and turned them into orphans are from his descendants – an attempted solution to a problem which made the problem worse!

Arise today and decree that your life, family and ministry will not be victims of the COBRA EFFECT nor will ISHMAEL be produced from your decisions! ODM is the best gift item always!  Our Daily Manna August 15 2019 – THE COBRA EFFECT
