TODAY’S OUTLINE: MFM Daily Devotional 10th October 2020
God has a message for you today. Read today’s devotional carefully. The devil has no free gift. My experience as seen below, will prove my assertion that the devil does not offer any free gift. Sometime in 1975, the parents of a particular girl took a decision to help their daughter who had always fallen sick some few weeks to her secondary school examinations.
She was always healthy until the eve of her examination period. This was why she could not participate in her examinations in 1973 and 1974. Not wanting to continue to fold their arms while the strange problem of their daughter persisted, the parents approached a certain witch-doctor in their village. He told them that their daughter was having persistent problem, because the water spirits were angry with her and they must be appeased.
They promptly bought the sacrificial materials requested for and dumped them into the village river, as directed by the herbalist. As soon as the sacrifice was done, the girl who had been a sickle-cell patient and a failure in all her life became healthy. Not only did she pass her examinations, she got admission into a university. She read law and passed her degree examinations in flying colours. But no sooner had she graduated than trouble started.
Things stopped working for her. She tried everything that she could to reverse her misfortune, but it was all to no avail. In order to get to the root of the problem, the same old village herbalist was again consulted for help.
By the time the herbalist was through with his divination, he was able to establish that the water spirits were angry again because the lady refused to worship them on a yearly basis, as earlier on agreed to. It took the lady a long time before she could get out of the bondage. She had to pass through a very serious deliverance process.
Whatever the devil gives is usually taken back with terrible and multiple interests. Sometimes, when people give their lives to the Lord, they usually notice that all the wealth they had accumulated when they were unbelievers would disappear in a way they would not be able to explain. Then, they would start to wonder what God was doing to them. Well, it is simple.
God is kicking away those things which were received from below so that He can give them what He wants them to get from above. Do not accept the bread of deceit. Avoid fake practices and deceitful escape routes. May God’s Mercy preserve you.
Memory Verse: Ecclesiastes 5:4 “When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed.”
Motivational Quote: When a foundation is faulty the collapse of the building will take place unexpectedly.
Prophetic Word: Every curse upon you shall be revoked today.
HYMN: O God Of Bethel
1. O God of Bethel, by whose hand
Thy people still are fed
Who through this weary pilgrimage
Hast all our fathers led
2. Our vows, our prayers we now present
Before Thy throne of grace
God of our fathers, be the God,
Of their succeeding race.
3. Through each perplexing path of life
Our wand’ring footsteps guide;
Give us, each day, our daily bread,
And raiment fit provide.
4. O spread thy covering wings around,
Till all our wand’rings cease,
And at our Father’s loved abode
Our soul arrive in peace
5. Such blessings from Thy gracious hand
Our humble prayers implore
And Thou shalt be our chosen God,
And portion evermore
1. I and the children that God has given me are for signs and wonders, in the name of Jesus.
2. Father, let signs and wonders be my lot, in the name of Jesus.
3. Every obstacle in my life, give way to miracles, in the name of Jesus.
1. Every frustration in my life, become a bridge to my miracles, in the name of Jesus.
2. I hold the blood of Jesus against demonic delay of my miracles.
3. I decree by fire and thunder that I shall not die before the manifestation of my miracles, in Jesus’ name.
4. You miracle hijackers, release my miracles now by fire, in the name of Jesus.
