YESTERDAY ODM DEVOTIONAL READING: ODM November 2020 Day 2 – WHEN HE TAKES HIS TIME
Hebrews 2:10-18 – King James Version
10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,
12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.
13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.
14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
16 For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.
17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.
18 For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.

One day, a man found a butterfly emerging from its cocoon, He sat there and watched the butterfly struggle to come out through the tiny opening. After a while, he decided to help the butterfly when he saw it was not moving. Using a pair of scissors, the man snipped off the cocoon and opened it fully. The butterfly emerged easily but had a swollen body and undeveloped wings. The man waited patiently to see the wings grow and tried to nurse the butterfly but in vain. The butterfly spent the rest of her short life struggling to fly and crawling around. The man tried to do a good deed without realizing that some struggles are important in life. Nature (God) has designed the butterfly’s body to struggle before it can fly. Did you get that? That’s a simple lesson from Biology but an award-winning lesson from life! The struggles and hardships in life shape one personality. They make us courageous and independent. Today’s scripture in Vs. 10(KJV) says: “For it became Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the capt of their salvation perfect through sufferings.” Then Vs. 11 says: “For both He that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause He is not ashamed to call them brethren.” So Jesus the LORD was made PERFECT IN THE FLESH through suffering! He was not made PERFECT through divine command. Our DAILY Manna November 3 2020
He had to PASS THROUGH THE STRUGGLE of pain and temptations! And because He is called OUR ELDER BROTHER (Vs. 11), the road He passed through is the same road you will pass through unto PERFECTION Ah! There is a prophetic word for 237 parents today: You cannot act as God to your children! You do not wish to see them go through pain! But I the LORD, own them as my HERITAGE and have a bigger plan for them than your plan! Allow them to pass through their own growth and their sufferings! Therein shall they grow; for in your compassion you may compress them and snuff goodness out of them Allow them to grow their growth according to my destiny plan; you cannot grow for them!” Oh THANK YOU LORD! As 2020 ends, determine that you will NEVER quit trusting God; for it is in your struggles that your scaffolds to destiny elevation are born! Learn from your “ELDER BROTHER”- the King of Kings!
