TOPIC: Youth On Fire (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 22 August 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalm 110-112; 1 Corinthians 5

MEMORY VERSE: “Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:5
The youthful period is the period of life when a person is young, energetic, and has great zest for life. It is the period when a man and a woman has the strength to serve God and also fulfil divine purpose. Youths are versatile, innovative, active, trendy and future-oriented. These qualities make them to easily catch and spread the fire of God to transform their environment.
Fire burns and produces flame that sends out heat and light. Fire does not compromise, it does not change with situation, but only changes the situation. If a substance is put in fire, the fire does not change, but rather changes or burns that substance to its constituent parts.
Fire spread quickly, it is dangerous and no object can pitch on it anyhow.
God is seeking fiery young men and women who will incinerate and burn the demonic kingdom and drive dark entities into the sea. Youths on fire are vibrant young people who produces and spread the flames of the gospel and send out consuming fire of the word of God to the enemy and light to the world (Matthew 19:28).
The Bible says “He makes His angels winds and His servant flames of fire” Hebrews 1:7.
The youth that is on fire for God does not compromise with the world, but rather changes the world. No witches and wizard can pitch on them because they are dangerous. They do not make friends with the world because they know this is enmity with God (James 4:4).
We have many characters in the Bible who caught the fire of God in their youthful age. A very good example is our Lord Jesus Christ, who caught the fire of the things of God from the age of twelve when He sat with the elders in the temple, asking them questions they were unable to fathom. At the age of 30, He did great wonders, he turned His world around, and did not compromise His faith with the Saducees and Pharisees. He brought the dead back to life, makes the blind to see, did a lot of miracles and multitudes were healed through Him.
Another example of youths on fire are Daniel and the three Hebrew boys, Shadrach, Meshack and Abednego. The Bible says, “But Daniel proposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank… (Daniel 1:8). They were not afraid of the king’s judgement, and they never compromised their faith for fame. No wonder they transformed the whole kingdom in their generation.
A youth on fire shines the light of God and becomes an environmental transformer. Are you ready to burn for the Lord or will you rather be a torch of the enemy? Make a wise choice today.
YE ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. A CITY SET ON A HILL CANNOT BE HID.
As arrows are in the hand of the mighty, so shall your children be in their youth.
1. Spirit of excellence, come upon my life now, in the name of Jesus.
2. Lord, let my light shine unhindered, in the name of Jesus.
3. Glory of God, fill me to overflowing, in the name of Jesus.
4. I shall not conform to this world, in the name of Jesus.
5. Holy Spirit, engineer me for great revival in my generation, in the name of Jesus.
6. I shall not die without making significant impact, in the name of Jesus.
7. Cage of works of the flesh, be shattered to pieces in my life, in the name of Jesus.
