MFM Mountain Top Life Devotional 17 October 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – We Will Not Serve Thy Gods
TOPIC: We Will Not Serve Thy Gods
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Isaiah 50-52; 1 Thessalonians 5
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Daniel 3:8-18
MEMORY VERSE: “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.” – 1 Timothy 2:1-2
MESSAGE: Though the Bible, as shown in our Memory Verse for today, teaches us to obey, honour and pray for those who rule over us, our first duty is to God Himself: to obey the first and greatest commandment, to love God with all our hearts, souls, minds and strength (Deuteronomy 6:5; Matthew 22:37-38). Therefore, we are not expected to worship or bestow divine honour upon any false god, lesser god or image representing a god.
These three young men (Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego) knew and understood this truth and the scriptural affirmation that our God is a jealous God. He will not share His glory with any beggarly power. Little wonder, despite the threat of king Nebuchadnezzar, these three young men refused to compromise their personal convictions. Instead, they gave bold and unhesitating witness to their allegiance to the true God. They had a hope and a truth that were fixed on Him who was their refuge and strength. They also knew that the wrath of God against sin and disobedience was far worse than human wrath.

As a child of God, you should diligently ask God to put a firm determination within your heart to remain true to Him and His word, regardless of the consequences. The fact that everyone is doing something does not make it right. In Daniel 3:28-30, king Nebuchadnezzar saw the fourth man in the fire, walking freely with the three Hebrew men and testified to the greatness and power of God. He came to this conviction after his humbling experience. May you receive the grace to stand for God in every area of life, in Jesus’ name.
Some parents threaten and intimidate their children for accepting Christ as Lord and for serving Him. Some outrightly disown such children. Some threaten their wives for joining a living church and for going to pray to the living God. Some of such parents are not born again and they prefer that such children or wives join them in worshipping the devil. Beloved, is this your current situation and experience? Tell that parent or husband humbly, “I will not serve your god!” I pray that you will not experience the wrath of God. You will not go into perdition, in Jesus’ name.
IF YOU REFUSE TO SERVE THE GOD OF ISRAEL, YOU MUST SERVE SOMETHING BY FORCE, THAT IS, THE DEVIL.
Powers and idol asking for your service at all cost shall die by fire.
1 Any problem in my life assigned to make me serve the idol of my father’s house, die, in the name of Jesus.
2 Intimidation and harassment assigned to frustrate me out of Christ, die, in the name of Jesus.
3 Idols of my father’s house, that is still active and waiting for my worship, you are a liar, die, in the name of Jesus.
4 Idol worshippers in my father’s house, calling my name for idol worship, you have done enough, die, in the name of Jesus.
5 I refuse, by the power in the name of Jesus, to bow down to any small god, in the name of Jesus.
6 Idols in my father’s house that my family members have been covenanted to, I reject you, I remove you, die by fire, in the name of Jesus.
7 O God of Israel, You are my God and I shall serve You forever, in the name of Jesus.
