MFM MOUNTAIN TOP LIFE DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR SEPTEMBER 16, 2022 (OVERCOMING THE STORMS OF LIFE II)
TOPIC: OVERCOMING THE STORMS OF LIFE (II)
Fire Scripture: Psalm 27: 1-14
Matthew 7:25 “And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.”
Have faith in God; He never fails.
Every strange fire forcing you out of God’s presence is quenched now, in the name of Jesus.
Today’s memory verse is a highlight of what the believer goes through because of his faith in Christ. The devil will stop at nothing to make sure he frustrates the believer. The battle line has already been drawn. What the believer ought to do is to confront the challenges the enemy brings his way and conquer them through the power and grace of God, and glorifying God through the challenges.
The believer is not expected to sit down and begin to grumble, murmur or complain. The Bible says that the righteous is as bold as a lion. You must be strong and courageous. Abraham believed God well enough to leave his father’s house and to go to a land where God would show him (Genesis 12:1). Abraham believed God well enough to give Him his promised son.
The Bible says in Romans 4:20: “He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God.” Beloved, did the promise fail? No, it did not because God never fails. Abraham kept giving glory to God even when the situation seemed hopeless. He believed God well enough and was willing to sacrifice his son Isaac to God. The Bible says that he knew that God was able to raise the dead back to life (Romans 4:17).
Did God eventually allow Abraham to sacrifice Isaac? No, He didn’t. It was a test in Abraham’s storm and he passed it. Dear reader, like Abraham, we need to build our faith on Christ the Rock. Every other ground is sinking sand; only Christ is the solid foundation. In the storm of life, hold on tight to Jesus. No matter how heavy the burden of pain you bear, it is better with Christ in it.
Jesus already told us in John 15:18-20 that, “If the world hates you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you…. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you…” Be encouraged today – that storm you are facing is for a greater glory and you will surely testify, in the name of Jesus.
1. Arrows of the wicked tormenting my faith, backfire, in the name of Jesus.
2. No weapon fashioned against my testimonies shall prosper, in the name of Jesus.
3. Anointing to overcome, overshadow my life now, in the name of Jesus.
4. Satanic wind blowing away my blessings, receive confusion and backfire, in the name of Jesus.
5. Every domestic rage against my favour, die, in the name of Jesus.
6. O God, arise and show Yourself in my storm today, in the name of Jesus.
