Daily Fountain 2017 - Divine Programme Revealed




Friday May 19

Bible Reading:     Gen. 15: 12 - 16
Topic:         Divine Programme Revealed

Today's passage calls for deep reflection. Our wonderful God has the master plan for our lives and so it is in our own best interest to serve Him sincerely.

He showed Abram His present and future plans for him and his descendants.

His descendants would be strangers in a foreign land, be enslaved and ill treated for 400 years. Abram would die of a good old age and be buried in peace. The Lord would punish his descendants' oppressors and they would go out of bondage with great possessions (Gen. 25: 8; Ex. 12: 35, 40).

The best thing that can happen to you and your family is to walk with God. In life nobody knows what the future holds in store, therefore it is wise to hold on to God Who holds the future and reveals it to those He wishes.

Psalm 25: 4 says "The secret things of the Lord s with those who fear Him and He will shew them His covenant"

Serving God gives one a great advantage over others. If we decide to follow God faithfully He will use us to direct our lives and that of our families.

Divine programs could be revealed to us if we walk with God as Abram did.

Prayer:

Take my life oh Lord and let it be consecrated to Thee, Amen

Memory Verse:   Gen. 15: 13

"And He said unto Abram, know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them and they shall afflict them four hundred years"
