MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 18 February 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya: Benefits of Scripture Memorisation (III)
TOPIC: Benefits of Scripture Memorisation (III) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 18 February 2019)
Bible In One Year: Leviticus 23-24; Mark 1:1-22
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Psalm 19:1-14
MEMORY VERSE: “A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how good is it!” – Proverbs 15:23
Today, we shall conclude our discourse on the benefits of meditating on the Scripture by looking at some more benefits of this highly rewarding spiritual exercise.
Storing God’s word in your mind will help to improve and enrich your communion with God as well as to enjoy your fellowship with Him and His ways. Do you want to relate with God the way He really is? Memorise His words, meditate on them and express them to Him in thanksgiving, praise, etc day by day. Memorising God’s word will make your communion or fellowship with God more rewarding.
In addition, memorising the Scripture will make your prayer more effective and result-oriented. The Bible says that the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous person avails much. One of the things that make a righteous person to avail much or produce great positive results in prayer is that it is based on and laced with the word of God. When you pray according to God’s will and speak God’s word back to Him in prayer, He is bound to answer you and give you testimonies. Believers sometimes find the need to pray in places and emergency situations where their Bibles are not available. In such a situation, anyone who has not memorised God’s word may be handicapped, but if you have stored His word in your heart, you would draw out a sword of the Spirit and triumph over the enemy as Jesus did in the wilderness.
Beloved, I strongly encourage you to store God’s word in your heart. The word of God will purify your heart and free it from the corruption and vanities of this life. The Bible says, that out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. When your heart is filled with the word of God, your words will be seasoned with grace. Let me again summarise the inestimable benefits of memorising the Scripture with Charles Swindoli’s words, “I know of no other single practice in the Christian life more rewarding, practically speaking, than memorising Scripture. . . .No other single exercise pays greater spiritual dividends! Your prayer life will be strengthened. Your witnessing will be sharper and much more effective. Your attitudes and outlook will begin to change. Your mind will become alert and observant. Your confidence and assurance will be enhanced. Your faith will be solidified.” God’s words carry His power, glory and blessings. Memorise them, use them and you will experience divine transformation.
THE WORD OF GOD IS NOURISHMENT FOR THE SOUL; FEED ON IT REGULARLY.
Jesus, the Word of life, shall speak life to every dead situation in your life.
- O Lord, let Your word richly dwell in me and profit my life, in the name of Jesus.
- Wealth of the Gentiles, arise and locate me, in the name of Jesus.
- Powers of affliction and oppression, targeted against my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
- O finger of God, command my lifting, in the name of Jesus.
- Every power assigned against my foreign benefits, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Let the favour that brings repossession locate my life, in the name of Jesus.
- Every wealth that I have lost, return unto me now, in the name of Jesus.
