Topic: Command The Morning III
Fire Scripture: Eph. 6:12-18
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
MFM DAILY DEVOTIONAL 15TH AUGUST 2021 MESSAGE:
What are the lessons to be drawn from what we have learnt so far? The early hours of the morning exert serious spiritual inﬂuence upon human lives. In this modern age, we have lost out on the value of early hours of the day. In most cities, people have no control over the ﬁrst few hours of the day. The modern trend has eroded Christian values. People now take many important Christian principles for granted.
Our Pentecostal fathers held services from 5:30am to 6:30 am and people would attend and command the morning in their favour before setting out to work. It is not surprising that they awed their enemies and were always miles ahead of their competitors. While Christians have abandoned this practice and taken to easy-does-it approach and they are reaping powerlessness, the adherents of other religions now wake very early to issue demonic instructions to the day and also hold vigils in order to take over from Christians.
The truth is that we (Christians) cannot afford to go to sleep or become slack as we are presently doing. The Church must return to this forgotten principle. Christian families as well as individual believers must do the same. The Bible says that it is given to us to know the mysteries of God’s kingdom. It is not given to our adversaries. Let us take hold of those principles and rule with them.
Through warfare and aggressive prayers, we should dislodge the forces of wickedness in our environments and in the ﬁrst and second heaven. We should command the sun, moon and stars to shake off and vomit any wicked thing programmed into them against us. We should take over the reign of power and ensure that the kingdom of this world becomes that of God and His Christ. We can achieve all this by commanding the morning everyday and continuously.
If you are not a child of God, this principle will not work effectively for you. So I advise you to give your life to Jesus Christ now. As you apply this spiritual principle, you will begin to reign in life.
MEMORY VERSE: Mark 4:11 – And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables

HYMN: Forth In Thy Name, O Lord, I go
1. Forth in Thy Name, O Lord, I go,
My daily labour to pursue,
Thee, only Thee, resolved to know
In all I think, or speak, or do.
2. The task Thy wisdom hath assigned
O let me cheerfully fulﬁl,
In all my works Thy presence ﬁnd,
And prove Thy good and perfect will.
3. Thee may I set at my right hand,
Whose eyes mine inmost substance see,
And labour on at Thy command,
And offer all my works to Thee.
4. Give me to bear Thy easy yoke,
And every moment watch and pray,
And still to things eternal look,
And hasten to Thy glorious day;
5. For Thee delightfully employ
Whate’er Thy bounteous grace hath given,
And run my course with even joy,
And closely walk with Thee to heaven
