MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 21 December 2018 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – You Can Have Complete Prosperity
TOPIC: You Can Have Complete Prosperity (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 21 December 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 3 John 1-2
MEMORY VERSE: “But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.” –Deuteronomy 8:18
God’s desire for us is to enjoy all round prosperity and exercise dominion over all other creatures. The prosperity of our soul is the topmost priority of God, and once this is settled, all other things are mere additions, which God has promised to release to us liberally.
Many preachers and believers qoute 3 John 1-2 and use it severally without paying serious attention to what motivated the prayer of John, the beloved, in the first place. When we read further, we will easily notice that the prayer was motivated by what the Apostle wrote in 3 John 3-8. John wrote “For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. Beloved, thou doest faithfully whatsoever thou doest to the brethren, and to strangers; Which have borne witness of thy charity before the church: whom if thou bring forward on their journey after a godly sort, thou shalt do well: Because that for his name’s sake they went forth, taking nothing of the Gentiles. We therefore ought to receive such, that we might be fellowhelpers to the truth.” From this scripture, it is clear that Gaius was a man whose “spiritual health” was evident to all. The brethren testified that Gaius was a man who exhibited holiness within and without. He demonstrated true love for Jesus by using his resources to support the ministry. He offered his services spiritually, physically, and financially. He did not allow the name of the Lord to be tarnished among the unbelievers for financial assistance. He practiced what Jesus taught and this provoked the prophetic utterance of Apostle John. John prayed for Gaius’ total prosperity -physical, spiritual, and financial. Jesus commanded that we love one another. He demanded our total commitment to the message of the cross if we truly desire to be His disciple. His promise to us if we abide in Him is that we would receive whatsoever we ask from Him. If we diligently seek the kingdom of God, then shall other things be added to us. This is the divine blueprint for complete prosperity. The soul must first prosper and when this happens, of necessity, total healing and divine provisions shall follow unhindered.
A prosperous life is a healthy and happy life, a life that honours God, a life that goes the extra mile to show love to brethren, a life that takes delight in preaching the gospel and teaching sound doctrines, a life that is heavenly focused, a life that is humble despite possession of earthly riches, a life that fears God and obeys His commandments always. Example of people who have complete prosperity in the Bible are: Enoch, David, Solomon, Job, Apostle Paul and Jesus Christ, the Master of all.
We must be fully determined to get rid of our individualistic self-centred tendencies and love the Lord with all our hearts and resources and show agape love to others as well. We can surely enjoy complete prosperity if we make it our goal. May the Lord help us, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
BELOVED, I WISH ABOVE ALL THINGS THAT YOU MAY PROSPER AND BE IN HEALTH EVEN AS YOUR SOUL PROSPERS.
You shall be empowered to live the life of Jesus.
- I shall not be weary in well doing, by the power in the name of Jesus.
- Spirit of the living God, empower me to live the life of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
- Holy Spirit, purge my life with Your fire, in the name of Jesus.
- Create in me a new heart O LORD and renew the right spirit within me, in the name of Jesus.
- Peace like a river, flow in my soul, in the name of Jesus.
- Powers attacking my total wellbeing, your time has expired, release me and die, in the name of Jesus.
- You the spirit of selfishness, self-centredness and insensitivity to calls for support of the gospel, I kill you in my life today, in the name of Jesus.
