TOPIC: How To End Your Dry Season (I) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 10 November 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Jeremiah 48-49; Hebrews 7
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
MEMORY VERSE: “And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing.” – Ezekiel 34:26
In life, there is dry season and there is rainy season. The dry season is a period when the heavens are closed and there is no rain. This leads to drought and dryness, shortage, locust and grasshopper activities, starvation and possibly death. Both physical and spiritual dry seasons are unpleasant experiences of life.
Spiritual dry season is characterised by lack of God’s presence, low spiritual power, low spiritual sensitivity and lack of appetite for the word of God. When there is spiritual dryness, there will be lack of tangible progress in the things of God. Spiritual dryness often gives birth to other problems. That is why you should stop it and usher in the rainy season in your spiritual life. The physical dry season is characterised by lack of good health and poor physical working condition and bad environment. There is also the material dry season, which is characterised by lack of material blessings. Other kinds of dry season include: political dry season, economic dry season, social dry season, moral dry season, career and business dry season, academic dry season, intellectual dry season, marital dry season, emotional dry season, financial dry season, resources dry season and opportunity dry season. I decree an end to any dry season that you are facing today, in the mighty name of Jesus.
What are the causes of dry season? The first cause is idolatry. That is, when you make anything more important than God in your life. When Ahab and Jezebel institutionalised Baal worship and made the children of Israel to worship Baal, God’s judgement was the introduction of famine in the land. Through the decree of Elijah, His prophet, God sealed the heavens and there was no rain or dew for three and a half years. Idolatry was the cause and consequences of the dry season the Israelites experienced during Ahab’s time. Beware, anyone who goes into any form of idolatry should be prepared for different kinds of dry season. Another cause of dry season is disobedience to the voice of God. God told Saul to destroy the Amalekites and spare nothing in doing so, but Saul obeyed partially. Partial obedience is the same as disobedience. What was the consequence? God rejected Saul, took the kingdom from him and gave to David. In addition, God stopped revealing Himself to Saul by dreams, Urim and other means. That was spiritual dryness. Unfaithfulness in the payment of tithe and offering also engenders spiritual and physical dryness. Other causes of dryness include impatience, which involves running ahead of God into projects and ventures, bad management and wastage, debt accumulation, laziness, troublesome foundation and interference of the power of darkness.
Beloved, if you are passing through a dry season experience today, I encourage you to give your life to Jesus. Make Him your personal Lord and Saviour and cry to Him for mercy as well as help. When you do, the All-powerful One, who changes the times and seasons, will change your dry season to rainy season.
WHEN THE SHOWER OF BLESSINGS COMES, HUMAN BEINGS, ANIMALS AND VEGETATION WILL BE REFRESHED.
By fire, I terminate your dry season now.
1 O God, come down and rend my heavens open, in the name of Jesus.
2 I command dry season to end in my life, in the name of Jesus.
3 Power of God, usher in my rainy season, in the name of Jesus.
4 I overcome the sin of idolatry behind dry season in my life, in the name of Jesus.
5 Any power in my foundation, fuelling and supporting dry season experience, die, in the name of Jesus.
6 I terminate famine and drought in my life, in the name of Jesus.
7 It is written that in the time of famine I shall be satisfied, O Lord give me satisfaction, in the name of Jesus.
