TOPIC: DEEP BATTLES
Fire Scripture: Matt. 13:24-28
TODAY’S OUTLINE: MFM Daily Devotional 22nd October 2020
Battles come in different shapes and sizes. Some battles are complex and deep, while others are ordinary. There are many people going through battles that they do not understand or that cannot be unravelled. They try to understand and dominate the battles. They do not understand the kind of prayers to pray against them.
Sometimes when they go to their pastors, the pastor would tell them that their case is related to insanity and that they would need to see a doctor. There was a lady who, anytime she was menstruating, would feel like eating sand. Unless she locked herself in the room, she would eat sand. The day she told her pastor, the pastor said that such a problem was imaginary and that she needed to see her doctor. She revealed to the pastor that her, “husband was a doctor.” Such was her mysterious battle.
It is only God who could reveal the cause of such a mystery and also provide a solution. This is so because “He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.” Daniel 2:22. In life, there are certain things that are deep; there are certain things that are secret and there are certain things that are in darkness.
It is only the Lord Almighty who is capable of revealing such deep and secret things. “The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.” Deut. 29:29.
Beloved, to overcome the enemy and win your battles, you must begin with divine revelation. Go to God as He is the only one who can show you the secrets behind your deep battles. He only is the one capable of helping you to discover the powers behind your battles.
Memory Verse: Jeremiah 4:3 “For thus saith the LORD to the men of Judah and Jerusalem, Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns.”
Motivational Quote: God that will move you from where you are to where you are supposed to be.
Prophetic Word: At the power of the risen Christ shall arise for you in the name of Jesus.
HYMN: Rock Of Ages, Cleft For Me
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee;
Let the water and the blood,
From Thy wounded side which flowed,
Be of sin the double cure;
Save from wrath and make me pure.
Not the labor of my hands
Can fulfill Thy law’s demands;
Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears forever flow,
All for sin could not atone;
Thou must save, and Thou alone.
Nothing in my hand I bring,
Simply to the cross I cling;
Naked, come to Thee for dress;
Helpless look to Thee for grace;
Foul, I to the fountain fly;
Wash me, Savior, or I die.
While I draw this fleeting breath,
When mine eyes shall close in death,
When I soar to worlds unknown,
See Thee on Thy judgment throne,
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee
1. O Lord, restore my spiritual eyes and ears in the name of Jesus.
2. O Lord, let the anointing to excel in my spiritual and physical life fall on me.
3. O Lord, produce in me the power of self-control and gentleness.
1. Lord, let the anointing of the Holy Spirit break every yoke of backwardness in my life.
2. Holy Ghost, breathe on me now, in the name of Jesus.
3. Holy Ghost fire, ignite me to the glory of God.
4. Let every rebellion flee from my heart, in the name of Jesus.
