Who Pushed Me

Sunday 9th May 2021 Devotion
Scripture:- 1 Samuel 17
Topic:- Who Pushed Me
Text:- 1 Samuel 17:25

A man had one very beautiful daughter.

When the daughter was ready for marriage, the father sent news around town that all the eligible young men should come to compete in a test that would determine who was fit to marry his daughter.

On that day, all was set, all the able-bodied young men came out.

Some came with paper and biro and others with cutlasses and swords.

The rich man took them to his Swimming Pool and addressed the men, “Any of you who can swim from one end of this Swimming Pool to the other would marry my daughter.

In addition, I‘ll give him 15 million dollars, a car, and a house, so they can start life well.

I shall be waiting to meet my son-in-law at the other end. Good luck!”

As the young men, all very excited at the prospect of winning, started taking off their shirts, a helicopter came over the Pool and dropped Alligators and Crocodiles into the Pool.

Immediately, all the men turned back and started wearing their shirts again.

Disappointed, some of them said, ”That’s crazy, let’s see who would marry that girl, no one will”.

All of a sudden, they heard a splash in the pool. Everybody watched in amazement as one gentleman waddled across, expertly avoiding the Alligators and Crocodiles.

Finally, he made it to the other side. The rich man could not believe it.

He asked the young man to name anything he wanted but the man was still panting uncontrollably.

Finally, he got back to his senses and made a request saying, ”SHOW ME THE PERSON WHO PUSHED ME INSIDE THIS POOL!”

Moral 1: You don’t know what you are capable of doing until you are PUSHED!

Meanwhile, the Crocodiles were Rubber Crocodiles.

Moral 2: Those seeking to push you into the jaws of Alligators and Crocodiles may have helped you to reach your promised land!

Moral 3: Sometimes it takes going through the bad moments to bring out the BEST in us.

Moral 4: Trials are raw materials for Triumphant Testimonies…The push might take different dimensions.

Moral 5: Some people need to be sacked before realizing their potentials and reaching their goals in life.

Prayer Point:-
Oh Lord God, help me to have a divinely inspired push in my life henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Lord’s Day!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
