MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 13 April 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – The Arm Of The Flesh
TOPIC: The Arm Of The Flesh (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 13 April 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Samuel 22-24; Luke 12:1-31
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Esther 7:6-10
MEMORY VERSE: “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.” – Psalms 20:7
Don’t trust in the arm of the flesh. Why did the Bible give us this stern warning and great admonition? The first reason is that the arm of the flesh will fail you.
The arm of the flesh is insufficient and limited in itself. It is not founded in God or dependent on God, but on man. The arm of the flesh is often opposed to God and glorifies satan. When you trust in your family connections, parentage, your good look, skills, talents and spiritual gifts rather than the ultimate Giver, you are trusting in the arm of the flesh.
Ellab trusted in his height, Kingly look and position as the first born in Jesse’s household. All these made him arrogant and made his heart impure. He trusted in the arm of the flesh and God rejected him. Similarly, Goliath trusted in his giant physique, his years of experience as a warrior, his superior weapons and his gods. David trusted in Jehovah, the Lord of Hosts. Goliath was killed. The arm of the flesh failed him.
Are you a very beautiful lady or a handsome man? I thank God for you, but don’t trust in your look. If you do, it will fail you. There are many beautiful ladies who have no suitor and are unmarried and there are so many handsome men who are yet to make a headway in life, all because they trust in their physical look. I encourage you to amend your ways in this regard. Put your trust absolutely in God. Are you a genius? Are you rich? Beware of the deceitfulnes of riches
Paul boasted in the Lord. His confidence, trust and boasting were in the Almighty. I encourage you to always look unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your faith. Any personality, institution or object you repose confidence in outside God is an arm of the flesh. It is bound to fail you. I encourage you to put your trust in God always. You will never be put to shame, in Jesus’ name.
THOSE WHO TRUST IN THE LORD WILL NEVER BE PUT TO SHAME.
I decree upon your life that your little effort will yield big harvest.
- Lord, I thank You for Your love and mercy, in the name of Jesus.
- I reject any backward journey, in the name of Jesus.
- Agents of shame, assigned against me, die, in the name of Jesus.
- I paralyse the activities of household wickedness over my life, in the name of Jesus.
- I quench evil negative fire ignited against me, in the name of Jesus.
- Lord, give me power for maximum achievement, in the name of Jesus.
- O Lord, give me the confronting authority to achieve effortless results, in the name of Jesus.
