Our Daily Manna for Today 5 February 2022 Saturday
BASIC SCRIPTURE: PSALM 34:17-22 (KJV) 17 The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
18 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.
20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.
21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.
22 The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.
Our Daily Manna for Today 5 February 2022 Message
Recently, Bose (not real name), a university undergraduate, took her life by ingesting a popular brand of insecticide, Sniper. A final-year student of a Nigerian University took her life because she could not pay her final year school fees. According to sources at the institution, she was depressed following her inability to pay her school fees which prevented her from taking her final examination. Just before her action, she notified those on her contact list prior to the time she committed suicide. She was said to have written on her Whatsapp status: “If you love me, let me know because today may be the last chance for you. When I’m gone, you won’t be able to tell me you love me.” Indeed in life, in order to win, when the going gets tough, the tough get going. Duke Ellington penned: “A problem is a chance for you to do your best.” Yes! It is not a chance to GIVE UP! Some challenges are allowed by God to strengthen your spiritual muscles! No wonder Audrey Hepburn says: “I decided, very early on, just to accept life unconditionally; I never expected it to do anything special for me, yet I seemed to accomplish far more than I had ever hoped. Most of the time it just happened to me without my ever seeking it.” Difficult times will come to everyone no matter how you pray!
It’s a fact of life based on Psalm 34:19 – “Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.” Determine that in this year 2022, you are not giving up your FAITH IN GOD, no matter the matter! Ecclesiastes 3: 1 shows that there are good times and bad times in everybody’s lives! Life is in seasons! You cannot end in shame and no battle will consume you! Always declare: “THIS TOO SHALL PASS.” I see greater and better seasons AHEAD of you this year! Hold on and hold out!
PRAYER POINTS: Take Song 1: Tis so sweet to trust…
1. In your own words, pray about today’s word as led. 2. I determine that I shall not give up; no matter the matter in Jesus name. 3.

Delay shall work in my favour! Every challenge this year shall BOW TO THE GRACE OF GOD! I shall not weep, mourn or die before my time in Jesus name. 6. Declare Psalm 43: 1 seven times now! Pray about your 2022 prayer desires again. 7. Pray about today now. 8. Praise the LORD for answered prayers and expect a miracle!
