MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 17 December 2018 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Connecting to the Story Changer
TOPIC: Connecting to the Story Changer (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 17 December 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Samuel 2:7-9
MEMORY VERSE: “The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner. This is the LORD’s doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.” – Psalms 118:22-23
The account of creation tells us that in the beginning, the earth was without form and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. The Scripture did not reveal why God chose to start His creative work with a chaotic mass that was dark, formless, and empty; but the Holy Spirit, brooding over the waters, brought order out of chaos, and beauty and fullness out of emptiness.
This is what God is doing today with the lives of all who would yield to Him. He is a life transformer, a story changer and a glory advertiser. He brings something extraordinary out of nothing. He brought light out of darkness and made him to rule over the ground out of which he came. What a wonderful God we serve! He is indeed a story changer. He specialises in turning lives around, changes hopeless situations to enviable ones, converts sorrows to joys, and takes away our burdens. He made Abraham a fountain of blessings, turned ‘barren Sarah’ to the mother of nations, promoted David from obscurity to prominence, and elevated Joseph from prison to the palace. In several places in the Scripture, God’s visitation brought about remarkable and unimaginable lifting and victory to His children. This was what Hannah experienced that made her worship the LORD in such a glorious way in our Fire Scripture of today.
Hannah declared boldly “for by strength shall no man prevail”. She recognised that the love and preferential treatment her husband gave her could not deliver her much-desired miracle. Her daily sorrows and tears were only making her adversary wax stronger. Nothing worthy of celebration happened until she resolved to cast everything aside and connect to the story changer. She did not even bother to rely on Eli, the man of God, as many people do today. She focused her attention on the God who is able to do all things. This connection changed her story and made her to sing her song and dance her dance. Power indeed changed hands in her life, and her testimony was truly exceptional.
You can take a cue from Hannah today and firmly connect to Jesus, the story changer. If you are poor today, the LORD will make you rich. If the enemy has brought you low, the LORD will lift you up. He will transform your life, set you among the princes and make you inherit the throne of glory. He will guard your feet and silence all the wicked powers raging against your enduring laughter. Your story shall change from the stone that the builders refused to the stone that is undeniably the head of the corner. Your story shall continually be: “This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.”
GOD IS A LIFE TRANSFORMER, STORY CHANGER AND GLORY ADVERTISER.
Time is up for the enemies of your progress.
- Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to You, take over from today, in the name of Jesus.
- My season of sorrows and weeping, expire now, in the name of Jesus.
- Yahweh, the story changer, visit my life today, in the name of Jesus.
- Life transforming anointing, come upon me now, in the name of Jesus.
- Enemies of my greatness, your time is up, release me by fire, in the name of Jesus.
- I shall not die unfulfilled, in the name of Jesus.
- Powers saying no to my miracles and testimony, you are liars, shut up and die, in the name of Jesus.
