TOPIC: THAT GOD MAY BE GLORIFIED
FIRE SCRIPTURE: John 9:1-3
OUTLINE: MFM DAILY DEVOTIONAL 7TH MARCH 2021 SUNDAY MESSAGE
Why do bad things happen to good people? If you have often pondered about that problem, you are not alone. There is only one answer: God allows bad things to happen to His people only if He sees a way of turning the bad into a greater good. Romans 8: 32, our Memory Verse today, reveals that God specialises in bringing the best out of unpleasant things that He permits to happen to His children.
Someone asked, “Why did God Himself commend Job’s righteousness and still permitted satan to afﬂict him so terribly that he lost everything except his soul?’ The answer is that God permitted it because He knew He would bring greater and more glorious results out of it. He gave Job, after his trial, twice what he had before and his faith and patience are useful lessons for us today.
In John 9 the diciples of Jesus asked who had sinned for the blind man to have been born blind: his parents or the man himself? Jesus told them that no one sinned and that God only permitted the man’s predicament so that He would glorify Himself in his life. God was indeed gloriﬁed because Jesus restored his sight to the amazement of all people.
Joseph’s envious siblings sold him into slavery at 17, thinking that they had killed his dream and God-ordained greatness. They were wrong! Again, the Bible reveals that God allowed him to go through hard knocks and pain for 13 years. In the end, his dream was fulﬁlled. His brothers paid obeisance to him as the Prime Minister of Egypt.
Though they were afraid, he assured them that God meant everything that happened to him for good. Beloved, whatever God permits to happen to you will turn out as a beautiful testimony. Trust and obey God; He will turn your experience around and use it to glorify His name.
Memory Verse: Romans 8:28- “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
Motivational Quote: There is no limit to what God will do for the believer who will let Him have all the glory.
Prophetic Word: God will glorify Himself in your life now and Always.
HYMN: Be Glad In The Lord And Rejoice!
1. Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice,
All ye that are upright in heart;
And ye that have made Him your choice,
Bid sadness and sorrow depart.
Be glad in the Lord and rejoice!
Be glad in the Lord and rejoice!
2. Be joyful, for He is the Lord,
On earth and in heaven supreme;
He fashions and rules by His word;
The ‘Mighty’ and ‘Strong’ to redeem.
3. What tho’ in the conflict for right
Your enemies almost prevail!
God’s armies, just hid from your sight,
Are more than the foes which assail.
4. Tho’ darkness surround you by day,
Your sky by the night be o’ercast,
Let nothing your spirit dismay,
But trust till the danger is past.
5. Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice,
His praises proclaiming in song;
With harp, and with organ, and voice,
The loud hallelujahs prolong!
1. Father, I thank You because You always seek and do the best for Your children, in the name of Jesus.
2. O God, arise and glorify Yourself in my life and destiny, in the name of Jesus.
3. Father, visit me with Your mercy and power today, in the name of Jesus.
4. My Father, give me a lifechanging encounter today, in the name of Jesus.
5. I will sing a new song, in the name of Jesus.
6. My Father, arise and perfect all that concerns me, in the name of Jesus.
7. O God, arise and make my joy to be full, in the name of Jesus.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Num. 28 – 30
