MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 1 October 2018 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – The Fear Of God
TOPIC: The Fear Of God (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 1 October 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Psalm 128:1-6
MEMORY VERSE: “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” – Proverbs 1:7
The Fire Scripture and our Memory Verse for today explain the benefits attached to those who fear God. As a wise man, you must fear God because when you fear Him, you will have knowledge. Also, it is only fools that do not fear God. Basically as a Christian, you must fear God and respect His servants.
We were designed originally to fear God. No one can effectively serve a man or a being he does not fear or respect. No child can be obedient to the father without fearing him, but, fearing God is totally different from fearing man. In fact, fearing God has been described as positive fear by a school of thought, and we want to agree with them. Fearing God is a fear that causes no harm; it means to respect God and hate evil. It is the beginning of salvation. Beloved, if you have the fear of God, you must hate pride, you must not be arrogant, you must not walk in an evil way, and you must not have a forward mouth. The fear of God prolongs the life of a man and makes him depart from evil. At mount Horeb, the Israelites heard His voice, and they trembled. Joseph in Genesis 39:9 demonstrated the fear of God, and that took him to the palace. Job had to rebuke his wife because he feared God. Beloved, do you want to get to the top of your career, your business, your ministry and your calling? You need to be like Joseph. The proofs that you fear God include: living a holy life, having a strong positive character and spiritual strength, wisdom to do the right thing at the right time, faithfulness and diligence in the things of God. With all these qualities which are products of the fear of God, you shall get to your Promise Land without being hindered by any power, demons or principalities.
The gains of the fear of God are numerous. There are many things we do not need to pray for if we fear God. Just imagine how those that fear God have been cheerful and joyful, receiving goodness everywhere, blessings and protection from God, divine guidance, God’s love and above all answers to prayers. All these are bonuses and free gifts from the Lord if you fear Him just like a son that fears his father. With the fear of God, you cannot cheat on your customers, your spouse, even the church of God. Why not pray the fear of God into your life today so as to be a benefactor of God’s goodness and blessings.
IF YOU WANT WISDOM AND LONG LIFE THEN FEAR GOD.
The power of negative fear of the unknown, assigned to destroy your faith shall die now by fire.
1. O Lord, teach me what to do at the right time, in the name of Jesus.
2. Spirit of pride, depart from my life, spirit of humility, enter into my life, in Jesus’ name.
3. Every ladder of darkness assigned to make me curse God and die, break, in Jesus’ name
4. Every negative fear in me assigned for my destruction, die, in the name of Jesus.
5. Lord Jesus, establish Your Lordship over my life, in the name of Jesus.
6. Lord Jesus, establish Your supremacy over my life, in the name of Jesus.
7. Power to fear God and obey Him to the end, come upon my life, in Jesus’ name.
