DCLM Daily Manna 1 February 2021 – Not Made By Chance
Topic: Not Made By Chance
Text: Genesis 1:26-31 (KJV)
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
Key Verse: “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” – (Genesis 1:26)
Evolutionists believe that our world is an accident. They teach that matter acting on matter given sufficient time can bring anything into existence. Since most evolutionists are atheists, they try frantically to prove that God did not make the world and that everything in it came into existence over time by itself, man inclusive. But one wonders why man has not changed into another creature since his existence!
The truth is, man is not a creature of chance or our world either. Accidental products cannot have any form of similar designs and regular patterns as we have in humans and all the other creations of God. Man is a product of the well-thought-out-plan of God. He planned the world and systematically brought everything into existence. He carefully made man with very distinct qualities and characteristics and for very specific purpose, which is to rule and dominate the world.
Some persons have come to conclude that their life is a product of chance or mistake! They feel they are not meant to live or that where they are presently and who they are, is a mistake. Many others feel unfortunate about their race, colour, gender, family and social background, and even their physical features.
God did not make any mistake about anyone, including you. Even if you were born out of wedlock or there were attempts to abort you, God made and placed you where you are now for a definite purpose. Your life will begin to have a new meaning and become worth living once you purge yourself of the lies of the devil concerning your existence. You are made to win, rule and have dominion!
Thought For The Day: God made you for a good purpose.

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
