MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 19 December 2018 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Bearing Fruits in Old Age (I)
TOPIC: Bearing Fruits in Old Age (I) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 19 December 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Luke 2:25-38
MEMORY VERSE: “They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing; To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.” – Psalms 92:14
In the world today, many negative traits are associated with old age: I’ll health, failing eyesight, failing memory or senility, lower productivity and so on. It is therefore assumed that an old or aged person is physically and mentally weak as well as unproductive. The Scripture however associates some positive traits with old age. One of the traits is wisdom. The other one is the fact that the righteous shall bring forth fruit in old age and they shall be fat and flourishing.
In the New Testament, two characters stood out as people who bore fruits in old age. They were the devout and just old man called Simeon and the prophetess called Anna. Both Simeon and Anna were known in the temples as godly intercesssors. The Holy Spirit was upon Simeon and he had prayed for several years for the consolation of Israel and the coming of the Messiah. He was led to the temple be the Spirit of God; He carried Jesus, blessed Him and prophesied about Him. Prophetess Anna too came to the temple and spoke of Jesus to everyone in the temple.
Beloved grandpa and grandma, the Bible says that Anna did not depart from the temple but served God with fasting and prayer night and day. At four score and four years the Holy Spirit was upon her and she was bearing good fruits. I encourage you to emulate Simeon and Anna.
A TRUE BELIEVER IS EMPOWERED TO BE AN ALL-SEASON FRUIT-BEARING TREE.
You will bear fruits continuously and your fruits will abide.
- The enemy will not harvest my soul, in the name of Jesus.
