DCLM Daily Manna 9 December 2021 Devotional By Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — Bible-Time Miracles Are Still Here
TOPIC: Bible-Time Miracles Are Still Here
TEXT: Psalm 78:10-20 (KJV)
10 They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law;
11 And forgat his works, and his wonders that he had shewed them.
12 Marvellous things did he in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan.
13 He divided the sea, and caused them to pass through; and he made the waters to stand as an heap.
14 In the daytime also he led them with a cloud, and all the night with a light of fire.
15 He clave the rocks in the wilderness, and gave them drink as out of the great depths.
16 He brought streams also out of the rock, and caused waters to run down like rivers.
17 And they sinned yet more against him by provoking the most High in the wilderness.
18 And they tempted God in their heart by asking meat for their lust.
19 Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?
20 Behold, he smote the rock, that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed; can he give bread also? can he provide flesh for his people?
KEY VERSE: “Behold, he smote the rock, that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed; can he give bread also? can he provide flesh for his people?” – (Psalm 78:20)
A miracle wrought by God remains a living testimony to the living power of the Almighty thousands of years after. The Lord’s miracles are to be remembered for generations as a mark of His matchless greatness.
The supernatural miracles Asaph refers to in the Psalm under consideration took place about 467 years earlier during the wilderness journey of the Israelites. This leader of David’s choir testified that though he and his generation were not around when these events happened, their fathers have told them and they will not hide the word from their children, “shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done”.
God wants us to trust Him as we remember His miracles so that when challenges come, we will know that we have a Saviour who can rise to our situations. Like Asaph, Paul experienced such miraculous deliverances and declared that God “delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver” (2 Corinthians 1:10). We must not be like the Israelites who received miracles but still murmured.
God’s signs and wonders are not limited to the time they occurred. True, they met the needs of His people in the past. But we must transport ourselves beyond the former times and summon God’s extraordinary might to confront any contrary wind that is blowing against us today. As we read the miracles in the Bible, we must let them increase our faith in the Lord.
