CHANNELS OF FULFILMENT DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR MAY 20TH 2022 (IS STILL A SHORT JOURNEY)
TOPIC: Is still a short journey.
Text: (Hebrew 12 vs. 12-15), (Deuteronomy 27 vs. 7)
A young lady sat in a bus. At the next stop a loud and grumpy old lady came and sat by her. She squeezed into the seat and bumped her with numerous bags. The person sitting on the other side of the young lady got upset, asked her why she did not speak up and say something.
The young lady responded with a smile. “It is not necessary to be rude or argue over something so insignificant, the journey altogether is so short. I’ll get off at the next stop”. This response deserve to be written in golden latters. “It is not necessary to argue over something so insignificant, our journey together is so short”. If each one of us realises that our time her is so short; that to darken it with quarrel, futile arguments, unforgiveness, discontentment and fault finding attitude would be a waste of time and energy.
Whatever trouble anyone brings us, let us remember that our journey together is so short”. No one knows the duration of this journey. No one knows when their stop will come. “Our journey is for just a while”. Knowing the shortness of the journey, it is essential one cherish friends and family. Live respectful, kind and forgiving to one another. Let us be filled with gratitude and gladness. There is need for pace this year, for one to be able to create wonders.
Peace is the closest thing to God’s presence. I think that’s why David bailey said, “A positive attitude can really make dreams come true – it did for me”. It is peace that gives one the courage to face life and win! This called my attention to Eleanor Roosevelt’s quote that says, “It isn’t enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it.
And it isn’t enough to believe in it. One must work at it”. “Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seem upset”. Digest God’s word Deuteronomy 27 vs. 7, “and thou shalt offer peace offerings, and shalt eat there, and rejoice before the Lord thy God”.
Peace offering! I encourage you under the grace of God to offer peace offering to people today because the journey is too short to spend some of it on malice and enmity. God bless you!
- Oh God I thank you for your word to me.
- Jesus, give me grace to journey with you accurately, Amen!
