MFM Devotional 19th February 2021 (Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional By Dr. D.K Olukoya)

 

TOPIC: Why Are You Lonely?

 

Fire Scripture

Ps 25: 16-18

Memory verse

Isa. 41:10 – “Fear thou not; I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”

MFM Daily Devotional 19th February 2021 Outline

The world today is infested with, “I”, “me”, “my” and “mine”. This is a far cry from the desire of God for His children. We are first and foremost expected to be in intimacy with God, then with fellow humans. Loneliness could occur as a result of many reasons, hidden or open. These include the feeling of being unloved, unwanted or abandoned. It starts with funny thoughts, strange imaginations and untrue conclusions about persons, situations and relationships.

 

It degenerates into harboring fear, insecurity, suspicion, hurts, wounds, pains, keeping records of offenses, misconceptions, doubts and more. It could also be as a result of personal issues arising from disappointment, discouragement, betrayal, and all such. Whatever the cause, loneliness is a kingdom of self! God is shut out and fellow men too. The victim sees and judges issue from his own faulty perspective. He doesn’t see what is good in others hence he lives and operates alone.

This negative attitude becomes an easy access for the enemy. The devil creeps in to be the cheerleader and preacher to this person. He takes advantage of this situation to build his stronghold in his mind and offers ungodly counsel, thereby compounding his problems. He ends up stealing the peace and joy of such his victims.

 

Are you lonely? Do you often feel alone even when in a crowd? Do you feel unnoticed, uncomfortable and unwanted in the midst of friends? Do you have the tendency of easily withdrawing whenever there is an issue to be resolved? Do you dislike confrontation? Are you comfortable keeping malice? Do you feel offended whenever you’re not on the winning side? God respects healthy and godly quietness not an ominous one!

 

Loneliness breaks and destroys the network of people around you and can take you deeper than you ever bargain. The enemy enjoys the person who engages in solitude without the Holy Spirit. We should always remember the counsel of God’s word not to forsake the gathering of the saints (Heb.10: 25; Ps 133:1-3). Jesus emphatically told us that offence cannot but come (Luke 17:1a).

 

God promises to always be by His children; hence, with Him you can never be lonely. No matter your troubles and woes, loneliness is not the answer. I Cor. 10:13 says that God is able to deliver you from all your troubles. God sees your pains and can sort you out. Don’t be a slave to your problems!

Trust God and there shall be a way out, in Jesus’ name.

 

Motivational Quote

Except you are alone with God, loneliness is nothing but an emotional drain, an unconscious self-imprisonment.

 

Prophetic Word

I decree that every veil of darkness shielding you from divine illumination be lifted and roasted today, in the name of Jesus

 

Hymn

Forward! forward! ’tis the Lord’s command

 

1. Christ, our mighty Captain, leads against the foe;

We will never falter when He bids us go;

Tho’ His righteous purpose we may never know

Yet we’ll follow all the way.

 

Chorus

Forward! forward!

’tis the Lord’s command,

Forward! forward!

to the promised land;

Forward! forward!

let the chorus ring:

We are sure to win with Christ, our King!

 

2. Satan’s fearful onslaughts cannot make us yield,

While we trust in Christ, our Buckler and our Shield;

Pressing ever on the Spirit’s sword we wield,

And we follow all the way.

 

3. Let our glorious banner ever be unfurled

From its mighty stronghold evil shall be hurled;

Christ, our mighty Captain, over comes the world,

And we follow all the way

Rhapsody of Realities 24th February 2021 – See the Word in Pictures

Published

on

Rhapsody of Realities 24th February 2021 Devotional Guide By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

 

TOPIC: See the Word in Pictures

Scripture: While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal (2 Corinthians 4:18).

Rhapsody of Realities 24th February 2021 Devotional Message:

When you study the Scriptures, learn to do so with pictures; see with the eyes of your spirit; believe and act accordingly. It’s the blessings that your spirit takes a hold of that’ll manifest in your life. Therefore, as you listen to, or study the Word, visualize your victory, prosperity, health, peace, progress and success from within, and affirm accordingly.

Before the physical manifestation of the glory and victories that you desire in life, you must see them first within you. Once you can see it from within, then it’s yours. You can never have it on the outside if you didn’t first have it within. That’s where some have missed it. They want to see first with their physical eyes before calling it real; that’s not faith. Faith is calling real that which the physical senses can’t perceive.

For example, God said to Abraham, “Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee…” (Genesis 17:5-6). Abraham first had to visualise himself as the father of many nations. At the time God spoke to him, he was ninety-nine years old, and Sarah his wife, was equally old and barren. Nevertheless, the Bible says, “He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God” (Romans 4:20). In Genesis 15:5, the Lord had said to him, “…Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and … So shall thy seed be.” Abraham believed. He saw the picture of his uncountable descendants—numerous as the stars—from within.

What is it that you desire in your life today? Is it a child? See it inside first. Is it the growth and expansion of your church, a new job or business? Create the picture and take possession in the spirit, and with your spirit, first, because it’s already real in the spirit-realm. Hallelujah!

CONFESSION
Dear Father, thank you for the gift to comprehend the wonderful blessings you’ve prepared for me to enjoy in Christ. I visualize my victory, prosperity, health, peace, progress and success in your Word by the power of the Holy Spirit, and take possession of these realities through my faith proclamations. The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places, and indeed, I have a goodly heritage. Hallelujah!

MFM Devotional 24th February 2021 – God’s Picture of the Christian Home (2)

Published

on

MFM Devotional 24th February 2021 (Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional Guide By Dr D.K Olukoya

TOPIC: God’s Picture of the Christian Home (2)

Fire Scripture
Prov. 3:5-8

Memory verse
Proverbs 3: 6 “In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”

MFM Devotional 24th February 2021 Outline

It is necessary to be guided by God in such an important issue of life as marriage (Prov. 3:5-7;Jer.10:23). There are conditions we must fulfil before God will guide us (Matthew 6:25-32, Psalm 66:18). You shall give full attention to the teaching of God’s word on how not to and how to find a help meet. Let us first examine the former. I call them carnal and destructive methods of choosing a partner.

They include: walking by sight (Judges 14:13), carnal choice motivated by lust and sin, selection based on ungodly parental command, prayerless approach and tribal sentiment (Judges 21:16-20). Others in this category are fake prophets and prophecies, personal decision lacking divine approval and asking with an idol in your heart (Deut. 7:14).

Beloved, choosing a spouse the wrong way has several grave consequences. Let us examine some of them:
First, the New Testament commands against unequal yoke. Who is an unbeliever? The prosperous man who is not born-again, the beautiful lady who is not Christlike, the well-behaved person who has not given his life to Jesus, the religious, dutiful, conscientious church-goer who has never truly repented, the “believer” who is not a new-creature, the “convert” who is not free from sin, the “Pentecostal” who speaks in tongues but lacks divine love for God and brethren, the backslider who is no more in Christ.

It is ungodly for any believer to elope with a woman or man, no matter the divergent and unyielding stance of the parents (Gen 31:20-51). People in such a situation must pray and trust in the Lord, who gave the revelation of His will, to finish the work, for with God all things are possible. The church will not join a couple in marriage, where one of them had been married and the partner is alive (Matt. 19:4-6), the lady has not obtained the consent of her parents, the lady is already pregnant, the couple is unequally yoked – one of them is not born again or not a Christian at all.

Leviticus 18:27 says that for all these abominations have the men of the land done which were before you, and the land is defiled. Beloved, I encourage you to trust God and acknowledge Him in all your ways. Your marital life will be a success story.

Motivational Quote
Just as you should not buy a house because of the painting, never marry a man because of handsomeness or a woman because of beauty.

Prophetic Word
The agenda of heaven for your marital life shall not fail, in the name of Jesus.

Hymn
O Happy Home

1. O happy home where Thou art loved the dearest,
Thou loving friend, and Savior of our race,
And where among the guests there never cometh
One who can hold such high and honored place.

2. O happy home where each one serves Thee, lowly,
What ever his appointed work may be,
Till every common task seems great and holy,
When it is done, O Lord, as unto Thee.

3. O happy home where Thou art not forgotten
When joy is over flowing, full, and free;
O happy home where every wounded spirit
Is brought, Physician, Comforter, to Thee.

4. Until at last, when earthly work is ended,
All meet Thee in the blessed home above
From whence Thou camest, where Thou hast ascended,
Thy ever lasting home of peace and love.

TODAY’S PRAYER POINTS

MORNING
1) Holy Spirit, let my marital life be patterned after heaven’s agenda, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2) My marriage shall not lead me to hell fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3) By the blood of Jesus, I overturn every agenda of the enemy to destroy my marital life, in the name of Jesus

Christ.

EVENING
4. By the blood of Jesus, I break the yoke of ancestral evil power upon my marital life, in the name of Jesus Christ.
5. Holy Spirit, ignite my marital prayer altar with Your fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
6. Holy Spirit, reveal the will of God to us in my home, in the name of Jesus Christ.
7. My marriage shall not be wasted by the enemy, in the name of Jesus Christ

Rhapsody of Realities 23 February 2021 Devotional – Living for His Glory

Published

on

Rhapsody of Realities 23 February 2021 Devotional Guide By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

 

TOPIC: Living for His Glory

Scripture: And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again (2 Corinthians 5:15).

Rhapsody of Realities 23rd February 2021 Devotional Message:

In these last days, there’s only one thing that matters: living for the Lord; living for His glory; living a life of purpose. Jesus showed us the example to follow in this regard. In John 17:4, He said, “I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.”

That ought to be your thinking as well; glorifying the Father should be your passion and purpose for living. How do you glorify the Father? It’s by doing His will; doing that which He commits to you and finishing the work. Have you discovered His purpose for your life? Are you about His work?

 

The purpose of the Father is the salvation of the whole world. That’s the reason He sent Jesus. And your purpose in life is connected to this. No matter what you do in life, if you’re not reaching the lost and winning souls, you’re living an empty life. The Bible says God is unwilling that any should perish but that all men should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9). You bring Him glory in making this happen.

He seeks to beautify the lives of those around you, and lead them into righteousnes through you; that’s living a purposeful life. It doesn’t matter how fruitful or effective you might have been in other areas, you must seek to excel in soul winning, in taking the Gospel to the lost, hopeless, hurting and downtrodden, not just in your world, but also in the regions beyond.

A life well lived, a successful life that pleases God, is one that achieves those things God destined you to do. Therefore, bring Him glory by being effectual in leading men to righteousness.

CONFESSION
Dear Father, I thank you for giving me the opportunity and ability to influence those in my world with the Gospel. I go forth today, in the fullness of the blessings of Christ, impacting my world with your grace and righteousness, turning men from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
