Topic: Poor Coffin Maker Turned Overnight Millionaire (1)
MATTHEW 19 : 23-30
Beloved, let me start today’s devotional with the words of Rebekah Apel: “You can’t spell impossible without spelling possible.’’ This is another way of saying that, nothing is impossible and all things are possible, no matter the matter! Right inside that very impossible situation, there are possibilities. Welcome to today’s devotional again!
Joshua Hutagalung must have seen himself living and dying a poor coffin maker. Especially because, Asian and far Eastern countries prefer to cremate their dead and not bury them in coffins. But nature smiled on him and that which seemed impossible by man’s standards became possible. He became an overnight millionaire, purely by a natural incident that took place one night in the month of August 2020.
A meteor from space crashed through his roof, while he was working outside his home (A meteor is a small rocky or metallic body in outer space. They are significantly smaller than asteroids, and range in size from small grains to one- meter-wide objects. About 17 hit the earth daily). When a 2.1 kg space rock smashed through the tin roof in his veranda, the sound was so loud that his house shook like it was collapsing.
Mr. Hutagalung searched and saw the meteorite stone, still warm. He shared the photos of the meteorite on Facebook, which created a flurry of interest. As fate would have it, the meteorite is carbonaceous chondrite: an extremely rare variety estimated to be 4.5 billion years old. It is reportedly worth around 645 pounds per gram. The meteorite stone was bought off Joshua Hutagalung by a specialist rock collector for an unspecified amount, above 1 million pounds. An equivalent of over 30 year’s worth of his monthly income. Wow!
Who says the destiny of a man cannot change in one day? Ask Joseph! Who says you will end up in shame? Ah! Who is telling you that there are things your God cannot do? And who is telling you that GOD’S SILENCE is GOD’S LAST BUS-STOP? No! No! No! I see a TURN-AROUND coming for you that will SHOCK even you and your mockers! Very soon, God will give your mockers unbelievable positive stories to talk about! Amen!
In today’s scripture, Vs. 26 says: “But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, ‘With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.’’ Yes! Determine to wait for your SET TIME, because for your sake, God will suspend protocol and for your sake, God will divide and close every RED SEA against that PHARAOH WHO HAS VOWED THAT YOU WILL NEVER SEE LAUGHTER!
1. Take Song 2: Draw me nearer…
2. In your own words, pray about today’s word as you are led now.
Oh God! I shall not miss my set time through doubt, in Jesus name.
Oh God my Father! Do what You have to do to get me from where I am to where You have destined me to be in Jesus name.
Let any power or personality that says over their dead bodies shall I prosper, die for me to prosper in Jesus name.
Pray about today as led. Pray pages 7-9 prayers.
