NOVEMBER 2020 Day 25 – SEPARATION OF CONJOINED
TWINS: LIFE IS INDIVIDUALIZED 1
BASIC SCRIPTURE: 2 CORINTHIANS 5:10; EZEKIEL 18: 19-22
Conjoined twins are not a very common medical condition. It occurs once in every 2.5 million births. Two girls were born in January 2017 in the town of Charsadda, Pakistan to a 34 year-old Pakistani mother of 9. The two girls, Safa and Marwa Ullah, were not only conjoined twins, but they were also craniopagus twins; meaning they were joined at the head. Their father died of a heart attack while their mother was pregnant with them. After they were born, the children were left to be taken care of by their mother, grandfather and uncle. One thing was uppermost in the minds of members of these girls’ family and physicians in their home country – the children must be separated to live their individual lives. To achieve this, the family travelled with them to London to the Great Ormond Street Hospital for children, one of the few hospitals worldwide that has surgeons experienced in separating craniopagus twins. Though they said the odds were against these 2 little girls when they were born, they still determined that they must be separated to live their individual lives. After over 50 hours of a series of surgeries over a 5-month period, Safa and Marwa were finally separated on February 11, 2019. The surgeries involved about 100 staff of the London hospital and both girls are doing well today. Awesome you will say, but what the Holy Spirit is saying to a user of today’s devotional is that: Life is individualized. STOP
TRYING TO BE LIKE OTHERS! Every one of us, irrespective of the circumstances of birth, has his or her own destiny! You cannot live another man’s life. You have a life to live for which you will give account to your God. We are told in 2 Corinthians 5:10: “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ…” On that judgment day, God will not judge TWINS as TWINS! He will judge them as INDIVIDUALS! Moreover, Ezekiel 18 makes it clear that parents will not be held accountable on the last day for the shortcomings of their children and vice versa. Wow! Hear Catherine of Sienna: “Be who you were created to be and you will set the world on fire”. Yes! NO TWO DESTINIES ARE THE SAME! Be yourself! Live your life! Walk your lane and you will set your world on fire…(To be continued tomorrow).
