TOPIC: GOD’S PICTURE OF THE CHRISTIAN HOME (I)

Fire Scripture: 1Cor 7:1-9

TODAY’S OUTLINE: MFM DAILY DEVOTIONAL 23RD FEBRUARY 2021

Marriage is a holy union, a living symbol, a precious relationship that needs tender and self-sacrificing care. It is God’s idea and not a derivative of any culture. It is a gift from God to man and it has three basic aspects:
First, the man leaves his parents, and in a public act, pledges himself to his wife.

Second, the man and woman are joined together by taking responsibility for each other’s welfare and by loving the partner above all others. In this context, love is given a richer and more interesting meaning. L stands for loyalty to each other. O stands for openness to each other. V stands for vocalising appreciation to each other and E stands for encouragement to each other.

Third, the two become one flesh in the intimacy and commitment to the wonderful union which is reserved for marriage. By doing the foregoing, marriage provides the needed fellowship, comfort, companionship and partnership. It is one of God’s methods to keep men and women free from fornication and immorality.

With very few exceptions, most men and women are to marry. These exceptions are to receive God’s guidance and are not to be the product of infantile decisions, misguided initiations, faithless consecration (Gen. 2:18-20, 22-24; Matthew 19:4-5). Marriage is part of God’s plan to raise the Christian family. But the believer is not to go searching for a wife or husband without God’s guidance, neither is he or she to resort to an abominable method of sampling or picking and choosing.

The Bible reveals this truth in Gen. 2:18, “And the Lord said “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.” God seems to be saying, “I am not going to allow the man to choose for himself.” In Gen. 2:22, the Bible affirms, “And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman and brought her unto him.”

Beloved, you need to wait on God and get His guidance on important steps to be taken concerning your marriage.

Memory Verse: 1 Cor. 7:2 – Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let everyman have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.

Motivational Quote: Let purpose be the driving factor before marriage in your life.

Prophetic Word: Your marital journey shall not be satanically diverted, in the name of Jesus.

HYMN: God, Give Us Christian Homes

1. God, give us Christian homes!
Homes where the Bible is loved and taught,
Homes where the Master’s will is sought,
Homes crowned with beauty Thy love hath wrought;
God, give us Christian homes;
God, give us Christian homes!

2. God, give us Christian homes!
Homes where the father is true and strong,
Homes that are free from the blight of wrong,
Homes that are joyous with love and song;
God, give us Christian homes;
God, give us Christian homes!

3. God, give us Christian homes!
Homes where the mother, in queenly quest,
Strives to show others Thy way is best,
Homes where the Lord is an honored guest;
God, give us Christian homes;
God, give us Christian homes!

PRAYER POINTS:
MORNING:
1) Holy Spirit, come and dwell in Your fullness in my home, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2) My marriage shall fulfil God’s purposes, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3) Agents of darkness reporting my marriage to satan, die, in the name of Jesus Christ.

EVENING:
4) My marriage shall not follow the evil pattern of my ancestors, in the name of Jesus.
5. The end of my marital life shall be better than the beginning, in the name of Jesus Christ.
6. Wolves attacking Christian homes, you shall not prosper in my home, in the name of Jesus Christ.
7. Holy Spirit, direct the steps of my marital life, in the name of Jesus Christ

TODAY’S TOPIC: THE LIFE OF PRAYER (II)

Memory Verse: Acts 6:4- “But we will continue to devote ourselves steadfastly to prayer and the ministry of the Word.”
Motivational Quote: No one can do great things without great prayers.

Prophetic Word: The Lord will arise and make your captivities captives, in the name of Jesus.

Fire Scripture: Acts 6: 1 – 4
Now in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplying, there arose a complaint against the Hebrews by the Hellenists,[a] because their widows were neglected in the daily distribution.

2 Then the twelve summoned the multitude of the disciples and said, “It is not desirable that we should leave the word of God and serve tables.

3 Therefore, brethren, seek out from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business;

4 but we will give ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the word.”

Today’s Outline: MFM Daily Devotional 4th March 2021 Thursday Message

Prayer is, for the most part, an untapped resource, an unexplored continent where untold treasure remains to be unearthed. Now, what is prayer? Prayer is the servicing of our relationship with our heavenly Father through the communication of our value and worship for Him as well as our thoughts and desires to Him. A renown Christian writer said that the great tragedy of life is not unanswered prayer, but unoffered prayer.

Instead of prayer to be something we do everyday, like breathing, eating and walking and talking, it seems to have become like that little glass covered box on the wall that says, “Break in case of emergency.” It is true that so very often we associate prayer with crises in our lives. Paul was somebody who understood prayer and its power. Prayer was a part of his life, and admonished that it would be a part of the life of every Christian.

You cannot really be a good Christian and not pray, just like you cannot have a good marriage if you don’t talk to your wife. Prayer is the pipeline of communication between God and those who love Him. David was a man of great exploits in the Bible. He killed Goliath and took the reproach off Israel when the Philistines engaged Israel in a battle.

According to theologians, David fought sixty-six battles and lost none. Through the power of worship, he cast out the evil spirit that tormented King Saul. He was a king, prophet, psalmist, warrior, war general, etc. What was the secret of such great exploits? Prayer was.

Apart from being a worshipper, David also prayed in the morning, noon and night. As a result of such lifestyle of prayer, he conquered both the lion and the bear; he was able to carry food (baby goat) from the mouths of lions and they could do nothing. His secret was: “Three times a day,” no matter how tight the schedule is, I must pray. Morning, noon and evening I must go before God.” That was the secret of his exceptional life.

Beloved, prayer is the secret of great exploits. No one can do great things without great prayers. Pay the price to prevail with God at the place of prayer like David. Make prayer your daily habit and exercise; then you will experience great exploits in life.

HYMN: Spirit divine, attend our prayer

1. Spirit divine, attend our pray’r,
And make our heart Thy home;
Descend with all Thy gracious pow’r;
Come, Holy Spirit, come.

2. Come as the light! to us reveal
The truth we long to know;
Reveal the narrow path of right,
The way of duty show.

3. Come as the fire and purge our hearts
Like sacrificial flame,
Till our whole souls an off’ring be
In love’s redeeming name.

4. Come as the wind, O Breath of God!
O Pentecostal grace!
Come, make Thy great salvation known,
Wide as the human race.

PRAYER POINTS
MORNING
1. My stones of prayer, locate the head of my Goliath, in the name of Jesus
2. I shall not pray amiss, in the name of Jesus
3. Spirit of prevailing prayer, fall upon my life, in the name of Jesus.

EVENING
4. Arrow of prayerlessness, go back to your sender, in the name of Jesus
5. Birds of darkness assigned to eat up my prayers, be wasted, in the name of Jesus
6. My prayer altar shall not die, in the name of Jesus.
7. I refuse to be discouraged in the place of prayer, in the name of Jesus.
