MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 29 September 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Look Unto Jesus
TOPIC: Look Unto Jesus (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 29 September 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Isaiah 7-8; Ephesians 2
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Samuel 1:1-11
MEMORY VERSE: “They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.” – Psalms 34:5
Hannah was in a precarious situation. Her womb was shut. A woman has a biological clock. Except miracle, if the time for her by nature passes, she may not be able to have a child anymore. In every culture and clime, the expectation of the society is that after wedding, couples should start having children. If children do not come after some years, the couple, especially the wife, becomes object of gossip, ridicule and accusation among neighbours and in-laws.
Sometimes, the woman loses favour with the husband and the home becomes uninhabitable for her. In Hannah’s case, her major tormentor was Peninah, the other wife, not Elkannah; her husband. The fact that you have a challenge is not the big issue, rather the big issue is how you respond to that challenge. If you respond the right way (trusting God all the way and remaining in His will), the challenge will birth promotion, greatness and destiny fulfilment. If your response is wrong (seeking help outside God and leaning on your own understanding), you will reap regret and sorrow.
Hannah looked upon the God of Israel for solution to her problem. She didn’t seek help from beggarly powers and the kingdom of darkness. She cast her burden upon the Lord. Every challenge a believer passes through is a test of faith. Once he passes the test of faith, breakthrough and promotion will follow. The way to pass heaven’s test of faith is to always look unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your faith for solution and help in whatever unpleasant situation you find yourself. You must trust Him absolutely. Don’t allow public opinion or pressure from friends and peers to take you out of God’s presence and will, in your desperate search for solution.
Every problem has an expiry date. The Bible says, “Surely there is an end and the expectation of the righteous will not be cut short” (Proverbs 23:18). Hold on to God’s word. Heaven and earth will pass away, but not a jot of His Word will go unfulfilled. The same God who terminated barreness in the lives of Sarah, Rebecca, Hannah and Elizabeth will terminate marital delay, barreness, ill-health, poverty, joblessness and every problem the enemy is using to trouble your life, in Jesus’ name. The wickedness of the wicked will expire in your life today, in Jesus’ name.
In spite of what Hannah was passing through, she was fervent in prayer. She knew that the God of Israel answers prayer. She did not stop going to Shiloh and God eventually answered her. By prayer, Jabez experienced a turnaround in his fortune, Jacob experienced destiny change and fulfilment, and Elijah won a whole nation back to God. Truly, the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous person avails much.
Prayer is the key to unlock and access the resources of heaven. It guarantees the release of power and help from on high to make things work in your favour. It brings God into your situation to make the impossible possible. Beloved, no problem is too big for heaven to solve. Just look unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your faith! When you do, you will have all-round victory, blessing, joy and celebration.
LOOKING UNTO JESUS, THE AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF YOUR FAITH.
The Lord will answer you in the days of trouble.
1 My portion shall not be given to another in the land of the living, in the name of Jesus.
2 Every eater of good things in my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
3 O God, arise and send help to me from Zion, in the name of Jesus.
4 Lord, I trust in You, let me not be ashamed, in the name of Jesus.
5 Father, let not Your name be reproached in my life, in the name of Jesus.
6 Lord, remember Your covenant with me and deliver me from my oppressors, in the name of Jesus.
7 O Lord, arise and answer Your name in my life, in the name of Jesus.
