Fire Scripture: Psalm 30:1-12
Today’s Outline: MFM Daily Devotional 28th August 2020 – Power To Overcome Your ‘But’ Part 1
There are lots of spiritual problems that trouble man. Unto every life, a little bit of terrible rain will fall. Any dream of trouble-free life is a fraudulent dream. The Bible says, “Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.” The word ‘but’ always in firs that there is something wrong with a situation.
Whether we care to admit it or not, each one of us has faults, failures, weaknesses or other ‘buts’ in our lives. There was an intelligent professor who was a drunkard. That was his ‘but’. There are great men with “buts.” Naaman, was a great man, ‘but’ he was a leper.
God wants to address the ‘but’ in your life. If you call Him into the situation, He will reverse it, no matter how terrible it is. Saul was a great religious man, and was a very powerful man: ‘but’ he had weak morals.
Peter was a great fisherman and a great disciplinarian, ‘but’ he denied Jesus three times. God has the power to reverse negative circumstances and to melt away every negative ‘but’.
But there is a problem. It is the problem of unbelief which is one great tragedy of our present generation of Christians. Many will believe the doctors but they will not believe the Bible. Many will believe the consultant, but they will not believe the Holy Spirit.
The power of God has been undermined to the extent that many do not believe in miracles anymore. At one crusade, a lady said that she thought there were no miracles anymore. She said that she thought that the people who come to testify were paid to do so. What a tragedy!
Memory verse: “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.” 2 Corinthians 4:1
Motivational Quote: God takes no delight in seeing you become the landlord of your present environment. You are expected to break new grounds, attain new levels and record fresh achievements.
Prophetic Word: Anyone that has prepared special arrows to torment your destiny, the arrows shall go back to the sender.
HYMN: Joyful, We Adore Thee
Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee, God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee, opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness; drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness, fill us with the light of day!
All Thy works with joy surround Thee, earth and heaven reflect Thy rays,
Stars and angels sing around Thee, center of unbroken praise.
Field and forest, vale and mountain, flowery meadow, flashing sea,
Singing bird and flowing fountain call us to rejoice in Thee.
Thou art giving and forgiving, ever blessing, ever blessed,
Wellspring of the joy of living, ocean depth of happy rest!
Thou our Father, Christ our Brother, all who live in love are Thine;
Teach us how to love each other, lift us to the joy divine.
Mortals, join the happy chorus, which the morning stars began;
Father love is reigning o’er us, brother love binds man to man.
Ever singing, march we onward, victors in the midst of strife,
Joyful music leads us Sunward in the triumph song of life.
