MFM Daily Devotional 10 May 2021 Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional by Dr. D.K Olukoya Click To Read Previous MFM Daily Devotional Topic: The Whole Duty Of Man Fire Scripture: Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 Memory Verse: Proverbs 19:23 – “The fear of the Lord tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.” MFM Daily Devotional 2 May 2021 Mountain Top Life Outline: The word “Christian” means to be Christlike. God has done His own duty through the redemption of man. The redeemed man or woman (a Christian) also owes God the duty to grow into the image of Christ (Hebrews 9:14). From our Fire Scripture for today (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14), the conclusion of the preacher is that the whole duty of a man is to fear God and obey his commandment. Solomon was an anointed king of Israel, a prophet of God. He was anointed by God to rule over Israel. He can be described as that man that saw it all and had it all. He had fame, prosperity, power, riches, wisdom, yet he died an unfulfilled man. He discovered later in his life that the whole essence of living is to fear God and obey his commandment; hence his counsel in our text. To fear God means to reverence Him, to love Him, to have faith in Him and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and to keep His commandments and be obedient to His will. This is the only thing that can make a man whole and perfect. Without the fear of God, man is nothing. Every child of God is chosen and called to follow Christ. We have been given all we need for life and godliness and have access to the riches of His grace. However, if the foundation of your life is not laid on the fear of God and obedience to His word, your life will become futile and your fellowship with God will not stand. All the material possessions, intelligence, popularity or fame you have will be meaningless. The only thing that can give you fulfilment in this life and the life hereafter is to fear God and obey His commands. It would amount to sin if we fail to follow God’s word which is a revealer of God’s mind to us as recorded in Micah 6:8. Doing His will equals to reverencing Him, because you cannot obey and reverence who you have no regards for. There is assurance of eternal life, strong confidence and divine security (Prov. 14:26-27). What could be richer than abundant life! May God humble our hearts to fulfil this one but all-encompassing duty to fear God! However, no man can fear God except by the help of the Holy Spirit. If you are not yet born again, surrender your heart today so that you can receive the presence of the Holy Spirit who alone can give you the grace and power to do so. Motivational Quote: The fear of God is an antidote to a life of futility and vanity. Prophetic Word: Receive the fear of God that makes the difference in a man’s life, in the name of Jesus. HYMN: The Comforter Has Come 1. O Spread the tidings ’round, Where ever man is found, Where ever human hearts And human woes abound; Let ev’ry Christian tongue proclaim the joyful sound; The Comforter has come! Chorus Holy Ghost from Heav’n, The father’s promise giv’n; O spread the tidings round, wherever man is found The comforter has come 2. The long, long night is past, The morning breaks at last, And hushed the dreadful wail And fury of the blast, As o’er the golden hills the day advances fast! The Comforter has come! 3. Lo, the great King of kings, With healing in His wings, To ev’ry captive soul a full deliv’rance brings; And thro’ the vacant cells the song of triumph rings; The Comforter has come! PRAYER POINTS: MORNING 1. Father, teach me to walk in Your fear, in the name of Jesus. 2. Let the fear of God be the foundation of my decision in life, in the name of Jesus. 3. Father, help to yield myself as a servant to obey Your word, in the name of Jesus. EVENING: 4. My Father, let the Spirit of fear of God be activated in my life afresh, in the name of Jesus. 5. Lord, let every part of my being come in subj e c tion to the obedience of God, in the name of Jesus. 6. My Father, reveal to me any area of my life where my obedience is yet to be complete, in the name of Jesus. 7. Father, grant me the courage to obey You, no matter how difficult, in the name of Jesus.

Topic: Blessings Like Sand

Fire Scripture
Genesis 22:15-18.

MFM Daily Devotional 10 May 2021 Outline

The divine power of God that has saved our souls is able to make us grow without limit. The power of God has given everything we need for life and godliness, through the knowledge of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.

Through these, God has given us his very great and precious promises, so that we may participate in his divine nature. This divine nature will make us effective and productive in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. To be blessed in the Kingdom of God is to increase and multiply without limit. This is possible through how much of God we embrace, our love in Him as well as our faith and hope in the Lord.

The promise of God for His children could be seen in the divine mandate given to the first man, Adam, in Gen. 1:28. God has promised to prosper His children and He is still doing the same. He gave His word to Abraham, a covenant of divine multiplication and abundance throughout the generations. No wonder He is called, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Gen 12:1, 26:3-5, 27:26-28).

He promised to bless Abraham and his generations abundantly and He accomplished it. He is still in this business, if only you are ready to attain the level of faithfulness of Christ. Abraham did and was called the friend of God. The Lord extended these promises to His children at various categories and to establish it fully. Jacob physically blessed his sons in Gen 49:1, following this divine promise and covenant of God.

We are the children of God through Christ Jesus. We are qualified as joint heirs of these heavenly blessings. But you see, you cannot continue in ungodliness and expect the blessings to be established in your life (Prov. 10:22).

Jacob could only be fully established in that covenant when he encountered God genuinely, amended his ways, make peace with his brother and God gave him a new name, Israel. Are you a cheat? Do you falsify accounts and records? Do you engage in greedy gains and shady businesses?

Do you seek prosperity “by all means”, even if it is not righteous? Desist from all evil practices; seek God! Believe in His word!

Believe His prophets and you will enjoy these unending, all-round blessings (2 Chr. 20:20b)

Memory verse
Joshua 1:8 – This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

Motivational Quote
That I may know him and the power of His resurrection.

Prophetic Word
Receive the power to grow, subdue and exercise dominion, in the name of Jesus.

HYMN
You have longed for sweet peace

1. You have longed for sweet peace
and for faith to increase,
And have earnestly, fervently prayed;
But you cannot have rest or be perfectly blest
Until all on the altar is laid.

Chorus
Is your all on the altar of sacrifice laid?
Your heart does the Spirit control?
You can only be blest and have peace and sweet rest,
As you yield Him your body and soul.

2. Would you walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
And have peace and contentment alway?
You must do His sweet will to be free from all ill
On the altar your all you must lay.

3. O we never can know what the Lord will be stow
Of the blessings for which we have prayed,
Till our body and soul He doth fully control,
And our all on the altar is laid.

PRAYER POINTS

EVENING
