TOPIC: She Looked for Grandma
BASIC SCRIPTURE: Genesis 17:1-8(NIV)
1 When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to him and said, “I am God Almighty ; walk before me faithfully and be blameless.
2 Then I will make my covenant between me and you and will greatly increase your numbers.”
3 Abram fell facedown, and God said to him,
4 “As for me, this is my covenant with you: You will be the father of many nations.
5 No longer will you be called Abram ; your name will be Abraham, for I have made you a father of many nations.
6 I will make you very fruitful; I will make nations of you, and kings will come from you.
7 I will establish my covenant as an everlasting covenant between me and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you.
8 The whole land of Canaan, where you now reside as a foreigner, I will give as an everlasting possession to you and your descendants after you; and I will be their God.”
ODM Devotional 21 August 2021 Message
There is a story of a woman who was always going to the sea to catch fish anytime she wanted to cook fish for her family. Her daughter noticed that whenever she brought the fish home, she would cut the fish into two, and throw away a small part. The daughter asked to know why. The mother was caught by surprise. She could not answer. She told her daughter, “That’s how my mother used to prepare her fish.”
A couple of days later, that little girl had the opportunity to go to her grandma’s house and the first question she asked was, “Why do you cut the fish into two and throw away one part?” Grandma too could not answer. All she said was, “That’s how my mother used to prepare her fish…” Fortunately for the little girl, great grandma was still alive. She begged mummy to take her there. She wanted answers to her question. Listen:
A Life Of No Boundaries Begins With Seeking The Right Answers. Great grandma was old and feeble and she had to strain her ears to hear the little girl’s question. She told her, “I had a small pot and usually cut the fish so that it would be able to enter my pot.” S
omehow, this practice passed on to the grandmother and to the mother of this little girl, even though their own pots were big enough to hold the entire fish. Wow! They were limited in their thinking, until this little girl asked a question. Who says that you cannot be blessed? Who says that you cannot be more successful than the people who have gone ahead of you? If there is no one in your family who has broken the million naira barrier, who says that you can’t? It is time to break those limitations and boundaries and reach out for all that God has in store for you.
The kind of victorious life that God has prepared for us as His children is a life that is without limits and boundaries. For most believers, it is hard to imagine this kind of life.
The experiences of the past are so strong in their minds that they FORGET THAT THE GOD YOU SERVE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH! Why is He called “ALMIGHTY” (EL-SHADDAI)?
The full breasted One (Gen 17: 1)? He is ENOUGH! He is ALL -SUFFICIENT! He is ABLE! He cannot be LIMITED and you cannot be LIMITED because YOUR BEST IS YET TO COME! Look up to HIM and resist every SATANIC BOUNDARY!
