MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 12 December 2018 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Lessons From the Life of Elijah (II)
TOPIC: Lessons From the Life of Elijah (II) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 12 December 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 2 Kings 1:9-14
MEMORY VERSE: “Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.” – James 5:17
There are other lessons to learn from the life of Elijah. One of these other lessons is that Elijah was also a man of faith and courage. It is important to note that prayer produces faith and courage. It makes the Holy Spirit to overshadow and work mightily in the life of the vessel of God. Both the word of God and prayer provoke angelic intervention and operation in favour of God’s vessel. Faith and courage are two essential qualities we should possess in order to succeed in our mundane and spiritual assignments.
It takes faith to depend on God and carry out His instructions even when they don’t make much sense to us. 1 Kings 17:2-4 says, “And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying,  Get thee hence, and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.  And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there.” The next verse says that Elijah went and did according to the word to the word of the LORD. He went and stayed by the Brook of Cherith. He believed God for his sustenance. Good did not fail him. By faith he pronounced that there would be no rain nor dew in Israel except at his word. He got what he pronounced. By faith he challenged the prophets of Baal to duel on Mount Carmel and said that the God that answered by fire would be God indeed. His God, the consuming fire, answered him by fire and Baal worshippers were put to shame. It took faith and courage to do all that Elijah did.
God’s charge to Joshua was that he should be strong and courageous. Fear is counterproductive. Also the just shall live and win by faith. Faith comes by hearing, reading and meditating on the word of God. You can obtain divine courage and strength by asking the Lord for them in prayer. The Most High God will give you extraordinary faith and courage to subdue kingdoms and obtain good reports, in the name of Jesus.
HAVE FAITH AND COURAGE; YOU WILL SUCCEED IN YOUR ASSIGNMENTS.
