TOPIC FOR TODAY’S ODM – WHY THE ANGEL DID NOT HELP CORNELIUS!
BASIC SCRIPTURE: ACTS 10: 19-33
Verses 31-33 of today’s scripture says: “And said, Cornelius, thy prayer is heard, and thine alms are had in remembrance in the sight of God. Send therefore to Joppa, and call hither Simon, whose surname is Peter; he is lodged in the house of one Simon a tanner by the sea side: who, when he cometh, shall speak unto thee. Immediately therefore I sent to thee; and thou hast well done that thou art come. Now therefore are we all here present before God, to hear all things that are commanded thee of God.” Wow! Amazing encounter! But the natural questions will be: “WHY DID THE ANGEL NOT HELP CORNELIUS? Why did he instruct him on what to do?” So what the LORD is saying through today’s devotional is that: YOU NEED A MAN TO PERFECT GOD’S AGENDA for you on this planet earth! God will not do for you what a man can do for you! God will always prepare a man or woman at your point of need! You do not need to cry or beg for it and you do not need to beg such a person! Just as there was a PETER for CORNELIUS, there is a PETER (a helper) prepared by God for you! Never make any helper your God! The day a helper starts humiliating you, just know that his or her season in your life/ministry is over! As 2022 ends, arise today and call forth your present and future helpers!

1 There shall be showers of blessing:
This is the promise of love;
There shall be seasons refreshing,
Sent from the Savior above.
Showers of blessing,

Mercy-drops round us are falling,
But for the showers we plead.

Precious reviving again;
Over the hills and the valleys,
Sound of abundance of rain. [Refrain]

Come and now honor Thy Word. [Refrain]

Now as to God we’re confessing,
Now as on Jesus we call! [Refrain]
