Topic: You Can Make A Difference
Gen. 1:27 – 30
Gen. 14:22 – 23 – And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lift up mine hand unto the Lord, the most High God, the possessor of heaven and earth. That I will not take from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take any thing that is thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich.
MFM Daily Devotional 12 November 2021 Outline
The world is broken, people are hurting and the future seems so bleak, even the coming generation is not certain of anything. It is only those who are in Christ that are hopeful because of the love of God made manifest in their lives. The gracious nature of the Lord enables us to love the unlovable and impact the life of the helpless and all those around us.
It is our responsibility, as God’s people, to brighten up the lives of others. We should be able to put a smile on the faces of those who are hurting. Beloved, how often do you look for opportunities to lift the lives of those who are down and broken? No matter what your own circumstances are, you can make a difference in other people’s lives. The world actually depends on it.
The world depends on us helping ourselves. Psalm 115:16 says, “The heaven, even the heavens are the Lord’s: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.” God has given the earth to the children of men. We are born and saved to make a difference in the world. So, whatever you can do to make it better for your fellow men will make a great difference.
You can make a big difference in the lives of other people in various ways. Your goal, as a Christian, should be to put sunshine in others’ lives. God wants to count on you for that! I encourage you to intercede for the hurting. Through your prayers, God will intervene in their situation and comfort them. Many of the unpleasant incidents you read or hear in the media should drive you to your prayer closet no matter how near or far away the victims may be.
You can also make a difference in the lives of other people by being friendly to them and showing that you care for them. You can encourage them with the word of God and emphathise with them. You can sow seeds of kindness into their lives, bear their burden and donate generously (money and other material things) into their lives.
Finally, you can make a difference in other people’s lives by doing volunteer work and sponsoring a child, among others.
You should be able to lend a hand no matter your condition.
I shall always be in the right place to do the bidding of heaven, as God lives and His Spirit is alive, in the name of Jesus.
HYMN: Dare to be a Daniel
1. Standing by a purpose true,
Heeding God’s command,
Honour them, the faithful few!
All hail to Daniel’s Band!
Dare to be a Daniel,
Dare to stand alone,
Dare to have a purpose firm!
Dare to make it known!
2. Many mighty men are lost,
Daring not to stand,
Who for God had been a host,
By joining Daniel’s Band!
3. Many giants, great and tall,
Stalking through the land,
Head long to the earth would fall,
If met by Daniel’s Band!
4. Hold the Gospel banner high!
On the victory grand!
Satan and his host defy,
And shout for Daniel’s Band!
1. My Father, have mercy upon me, in the name of Jesus.
2. O Lord, let me be rightly positioned to carry out Your agenda on earth, in the name of Jesus.
3. Wherever I find myself, I shall be an ambassador of Christ, in the name of Jesus.
4. O God, my Father, put Your love in my heart for the unloved ones, in the name of Jesus.
5. Every power limiting my potential, die, in the name of Jesus.
6. O Lord, my Father, let me be humble enough for Your use, in the name of Jesus.
7. My Father, focus my mind on You, in the name of Jesus.
