SPEAKING WITHOUT WORDS

SOUL-LIFT DAILY DEVOTIONAL WITH DR D.M. TIKILI.

DATE: WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25 2020.

TOPIC: SPEAKING WITHOUT WORDS

DEVOTIONAL READING: HEBREWS 11

KEY VERSE: By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh. (Hebrews 11:4).

BIBLE CHARACTER: ABEL

Odd that a person can “speak” so effectively through centuries and millennia, though the Bible does not record a single word from his mouth. Cain, the perpetrator, gets to talk rather at length in Abel’s story (Genesis 4:1-14). Eve speaks, too. Adam had his say earlier. From Abel – nothing.

Except obedience. He brings the offering GOD desires.
Except eagerness. One cannot read of Abel without the sense that he enjoyed pleasing GOD.
Except innocent suffering. Abel follows brother Cain to the field and dies with a look of amazement and innocence in his eyes, as millions have since. Why the cancer? Why the accident? Why the war? Why me?

Abel’s story reminds us of the evil that darkens our world, of lives lost to treachery and hatred. His death begs for moral judgment, for GOD to make things right again.

And that is exactly what GOD promises to do through the victory of CHRIST, our Savior. When CHRIST resurrected, Abel’s life – and yours was bought back, eternally, forever, by GOD’s mighty power. JESUS said, “l am…the life,” (John 14:6).

Today, and each day of our life, trust JESUS CHRIST, GOD’s Son, our Savior, for life eternal.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Jesus Is God’s Answer To Abel’s Why.

FURTHER READING: Abel’s story is found in Genesis 4. He is also mentioned in Matthew 23:25; Luke 11:51; and Hebrews 11:4; 12:24.

BIBLE READING PLAN FOR NOVEMBER 24: Psalm 119:49-64 Proverbs 28:12-13 Ezekiel 47:1-48:35 1 pet 2:11-3:7

PROPHETIC DECLARATIONS:

  1. My father, deliver me from household wickedness in Jesus Name.
  2. Every spirit of cain pursuing my life, die, in the Name of Jesus.
  3. My Abel shall not die an untimely death in Jesus Name.
  4. O God, give me wisdom to escape all the snares of the wicked one in Jesus Name. Amen!

Be Lifted!
