MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 3 August 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Operation Ziklag (I)
TOPIC: Operation Ziklag (I) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 3 August 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalm 63-65; Romans 6
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Samuel 30:1-8
MEMORY VERSE: “And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck. – Genesis 27:40
Tragedy often occurs in life, and when they do, many of us spend days, months and even years asking questions like: “God, why me?” A lot of people feel angry and bitter that if God can protect them, why didn’t He? In the midst of all life’s squabbles, many simply forget the Bible assurance which says, “All things work together for good to those who love God” (Romans 8:28). What many do not realise is that their lives are not in the hands of the devil but in the hands of the Almighty God. Even in the midst of troubles, trials, tribulations and temptations, there is a way out.
So, the question is not why didn’t God protect us. The critical question is whether we will stand up, and encourage ourselves in the Lord, not accepting the loss or anything less in our relationship with Him. If we do this, if we stand up, we will recover. We will recover everything. That was what happened with David and his men. God has not changed. Before Ziklag was invaded, He is the same. After Ziklag, He is still the same.
David and his men turned the situation around the moment they decided not to accept a defeated Ziklag. The enemy had stolen their hopes, dreams and enthusiasm, but with a heart filled with hope and enthusiasm, the leader, David, encouraged himself in the Lord. At that moment, the enemy lost the battle. For at the moment, they stopped crying and they started fighting, they recovered EVERYTHING!
SUCCESS IS NOT IN NEVER FALLING BUT RISING EACH TIME YOU FALL.
When the enemy says there is a casting down, the Lord shall say there is a lifting up.
- I will pursue, overtake and recover all my stolen virtues from the camp of the enemy, in the name of Jesus.
- O God arise, and fight the battles of my life, in the name of Jesus.
- All glory seekers of my father’s house, be confounded and run mad, in the name of Jesus.
- Every Goliath boasting against my rising, receive the stone of fire, in the name of Jesus.
- All my blessings, confiscated by witchcraft spirit, be released, in the name of Jesus.
- All my blessings, stolen by occult relatives, be withdrawn from evil strong-room, in the name of Jesus.
- You my glory, what are you doing in the cauldron of witches? Arise and begin to shine, in the name of Jesus.
