TOPIC:  Do Things Differently

FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Peter 2:1-9
Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings,

As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.

To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,

Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.

Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,

And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
Romans 12:2

MFM Daily Devotional 9 January 2024 MESSAGE

One key you should apply in order to have a great year is to do things differently this year. Someone said that you cannot continue to do things the same way and expect a different result. I advise you to do a serious self-assessment and make the necessary adjustments that will make your life fulfilling and glorious.

The great change you need to effect in your life should start with repentance. Confess and forsake secret sins, presumptuous sins, besetting sins, sins of omission and commission as well as all the little foxes that spoil the vine, etc. Improving your spiritual life and relationship with God should come first because that will determine how you fare in other areas of life.

READ MFM Daily Devotional 8 January 2024 – Put Your Faith to Work

Do you want to enjoy greater blessings from heaven this year? I enjoin you to deepen your communion and intimacy with God. If you have never read the Bible through in one year before, do so this year and the word of God will bless your life mightily. If you have been doing so, add other profitable exercises like Bible memorisation, and Bible meditation and be a better doer of God’s word.

Another thing you need to do differently for your spiritual development this year is to increase your giving. If you have not been paying your tithe, giving your first fruit and your offering, you must turn a new leaf this year. You cannot continue in sin and expect the grace of God to abound. God is not mocked, whatever a man soweth, he shall reap. God is not behind your financial crisis, you are! You must do things differently this year: increase your tithe to 20% and pay it promptly and joyously; give your first fruit faithfully and increase your offering too. I assure you that God will open your heaven and bless you phenomenally.

The last thing I would advise you to do differently for your spiritual fulfilment is to leave the company of fools, evildoers and time wasters. Keeping the wrong company is responsible for your predicament today: no quiet time, no Bible study, prayerlessness, no fasting and no involvement in soul-winning. Make new friends and associates that will help your spiritual growth and move your life forward and upward. Use your time wisely, and let it count for now and eternity!
