MFM Daily Devotional For Friday 21st January 2022
TOPIC: Say No To Powerlessness (1)
2 Chronicles 20:12 – “O our God, will thou not judge them? For we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee.”
It is a tragedy to live a powerless life as a Christian; to reign in life, you need God’s presence and power.
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY
Today, I decree that the Lord will move you from being a powerless Christian toa Spirit-filled Christian, in the name of Jesus.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR
Genesis 41:41-57, 42, Matthew 14:22-36, 15:1-9, Psalm 12:1-8
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Judges 6:11-16
PRAISE & WORSHIP
MFM Daily Devotional 21 January 2022 | Message
A Christian is first and foremost a soldier of Christ who is aware that there is an ongoing
spiritual battle, and he remains an active participant, fighting on God’s side. He is expected to be aware of the indispensability of spiritual power and is willing to pay the price to obtain it.
A Christian is most effective and profitable to God and His kingdom when he is Spirit-filled and blessed with the character of Christ. On the other hand, a powerless Christian is not an asset but a liability. The reason is that he cannot fulfil the purpose of heaven or be of positive impact and influence to others. Such a person cannot truly and fully fulfil the divine status of salt and light of the earth, standing out as a city built on a hill that cannot be hidden.
Powerlessness has robbed many believers of many valuable things, spiritually and physically. Lack of power will make a believer unable to have his enemies as his footstool or to rule and prosper in their midst. When there is powerlessness, a person will be ruled by those he should rule and serve those he should serve. Similarly, a powerless person will be helpless in the face of oppression, deprivation and injustice. He will be denied his right, robbed and shortchanged at will.
Until God raised and empowered Moses to confront Pharaoh and demand the release of His children, the lsraelites remained in slavery, bondage and hard labour for 430 years under the tyrannical king. Moses encounter with God at the burning bush, prepared and equipped him to be lord over Pharaoh and to subdue the powers in Egypt. Similarly, Israel suffered and groaned under the severe oppression of the Midianites until God raised Gideon, clothed him with His power, made him a man of valour and Israel’s deliverer (Judges 6:12). You need God’s power to stop the activities of wicked elders, domestic witchcraft, evil environmental powers, territorial demons and all works of the evil one in your life.
Dearly beloved, you must arise and do everything that is biblically required to move from being a powerless Christian to a Spirit-filled Christian, becoming God’s battle axe. You must say no to powerlessness!
