MFM Daily Devotional 9th December 2020 OUTLINE
Becoming a beneficiary of God’s mercy is not automatic. You must pray specifically for it. You will discover in today’s devotional study that a good number of Bible characters prayed for God’s mercy and heaven answered their prayers. No matter the kind of prayers you are praying, do not forget that praying for mercy is very important.In fact, you have to cry for mercy. This is the truth that God wants to share with you today.
You need to cry to God after the order of blind Bartimeaus. He did not possibly know the prayer to pray or even understand the prayer to pray but he did understand the general prayer that can arrest the attention of Jesus. After his prayers had put a break on Jesus’, Jesus then asked him for the specific mercy that he needed and Jesus responded by opening his eyes. The prayer for mercy is not a prayer that you pray like a gentleman.
When blind Bartimeaus prayed his prayer, I’m sure he must have sweated profusely. You need to key into the mystery of mercy. When you begin to pray for God’s mercy, situations that are stubborn will bow. Where the enemy says you will not reach, you will get there when you ask for God’s mercy. When you ask for God’s mercy, the words of man, clinical prophesies and economic predictions against your life will be completely cancelled. Mercy will make you a favourite of the Almighty.
So, pray for mercy today! Psalm 123:1-4 challenges us to wait upon the Lord until he has mercy upon us. When you start praying for mercy, the rule is that you must keep on praying until you obtain mercy.
Success is, by and large, a product of divine positioning. Let God position you where He wants you to shine. Pray to locate the place where you will be uplifted.
I prophesy upon your life, you shall paralyze the wicked powers that are working against your destiny.
Be still, my soul: the Lord is on thy side
Be still, my soul: the Lord is on thy side.
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain.
Leave to thy God to order and provide;
In every change, He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul: thy best, thy heavenly Friend
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.
Be still, my soul: thy God doth undertake
To guide the future, as He has the past.
Thy hope, thy confidence let nothing shake;
All now mysterious shall be bright at last.
Be still, my soul: the waves and winds still know
His voice Who ruled them while He dwelt below.
Be still, my soul: when dearest friends depart,
And all is darkened in the vale of tears,
Then shalt thou better know His love, His heart,
Who comes to soothe thy sorrow and thy fears.
Be still, my soul: thy Jesus can repay
From His own fullness all He takes away.
Be still, my soul: the hour is hastening on
When we shall be forever with the Lord.
When disappointment, grief and fear are gone,
Sorrow forgot, love’s purest joys restored.
Be still, my soul: when change and tears are past
All safe and blessèd we shall meet at last.
Be still, my soul: begin the song of praise
On earth, be leaving, to Thy Lord on high;
Acknowledge Him in all thy words and ways,
So shall He view thee with a well pleased eye.
Be still, my soul: the Sun of life divine
Through passing clouds shall but more brightly shine.
1. Every wave of adversity and tragedy shall be silenced, in the name of Jesus.
2. In this month, there shall be a divine manifestation of the exchange of power to favour me, in the name of Jesus.
3. Every troublesome situation shall bow before me, in the name of Jesus.
1. Every cloud of darkness covering my star shall melt away like cloud before the sun, in the name of Jesus.
2. I shall recover my stolen treasures, in the name of Jesus.
3. Every delay or limitation shall become a story of the past, in the name of Jesus.
4. Every evil bird flying against my destiny shall be shot down suddenly, in the name of Jesus.
