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

Fire Scripture: Prov. 3:5-8

OUTLINE: MFM DAILY DEVOTIONAL 24TH FEBRUARY 2021 TODAY

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.

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

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 Saviour 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.

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

MFM Daily Devotional 26th February 2021 Today Message – Remember Lot’s Wife

MFM Daily Devotional 26th February 2021 Today - Remember Lot's Wife

MFM Daily Devotional 26th February 2021 Today Message – Remember Lot’s Wife

You are reading MFM Daily Devotional for Today Friday 26th February 2021; written by Pastor D.K Olukoya. May you be blessed as you read on.

TOPIC: REMEMBER LOT’S WIFE

Fire Scripture: Luke 17:28-32

OUTLINE: MFM DAILY DEVOTIONAL 26TH FEBRUARY 2021 TODAY MESSAGE

The greatest obstacle to spiritual growth is the flesh. When you keep investing in the flesh, what you reap is death (Romans 8:6-7). Lot’s wife is a perfect example of a woman who invested much in the flesh and ended up being destroyed. Our Lord Jesus, talking about His second coming in the text above, compared it to the events that happened when Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed and admonished you and me to remember Lot’s wife.

What is it about Lot’s wife that you are to remember? She was married to a righteous man and into a godly family. Heaven provided her the grace and great opportunities to escape the judgement and destruction coming against her generation. However, she misused the grace and lost the opportunity to be saved because she loved the world and the things that are in the world.

Though she was physically moving out of Sodom and Gomorrah as instructed, her heart was still knitted to her idols and gods (treasures, jewelry, gold and silver). As a result, against God’s command, she looked back and turned to a pillar of salt! Today, you and I are saved and have the grace to escape the wrath to come and spend eternity in heaven. Are you not misusing the grace of God the way Mrs Lot did?

Are you not married to career, business, spouse and wealth, so much that you forsake worship and service that you owe God? Are you not “looking back” like Lot’s wife? If you are guilty of all these, you need to repent. Beloved, Lot’s wife is a type of believers today. Sodom and Gomorrah represent this world that God will judge with fire in the end. The instruction to flee Sodom and Gomorrah and not look back is the gospel of salvation from eternal damnation that you hear and read today.

Loving the world and the things that are in it, including idols like Mammon and so on, will make the word of God of little or no effect in your life. Like Lot’s wife, many have backslidden. I pray that backsliding will not be your portion, in Jesus’ name. I advise you to purge your heart of all idols, worldliness and carnality. Remember Lots wife. Repent and turn to God with a true heart so that you are not caught unaware.

Memory Verse: Luke 17:32 – “Remember Lot’s wife.”

Motivational Quote: A carnal Christian and an unbeliever will end up in the same destination.

Prophetic Word: You will not end up in destruction, in the name of Jesus.

HYMN: Are You Ready

1. There’s a great day coming, A great day coming,
There’s a great day coming by and by;
When the saints and the sinners shall be parted right and left,
Are you ready for that day to come?

Chorus:
Are you ready?
Are you ready?
Are you ready for the judgement day?
Are you ready?
Are you ready for that judgement day?

2. There’s a bright day coming, A bright day coming,
There’s a bright day coming by and by;
But it’s brightness shall only come to them that love the Lord,
Are you ready for that day to come?

PRAYER POINTS:
MORNING:
1. Lord, let my flesh life melt away, in the name of Jesus.
2. Father, deliver me from worldliness, in the name of Jesus.
3. Holy Ghost fire, purify my heart, in the name of Jesus.

EVENING:
1. Father, help me not to look back, in the name of Jesus.
2. Father, set my heart on fire for you, in the name of Jesus.
3. Father, restore my first love, in the name of Jesus.
4. Help me, Lord, not to miss heaven, in the name of Jesus.
