MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 22 February 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Managing Success Successfully (I)
TOPIC: Managing Success Successfully (I) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 22 February 2019)
Bible In One Year: Numbers 3-4; Mark 3:20-35
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Samuel 15:10-19
MEMORY VERSE: “Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.” – Proverbs 9:9
Most of us understand how adversity can test us. Often we do not consider how prosperity can try us and our character. We find it difficult to believe that blessings can cause us harm. We fail to recognise that the character of a Christian is not fully discovered until he has been tried by the fullness of success.
Job faced adversity, overcame it and got back twice what he had lost. In his trial and adversity, his faith, endurance and unstinted devotion to God were discovered as the hallmarks of his character. Conversely, success also tests our character. We all need knowledge, wisdom and understanding from above to manage success, fame and greatness when heaven lavishes them on us.
Saul, the first king of Israel, did not manage his success well. He usurped the role of a priest in defiance to God’s law by offering the sacrifice exclusively reserved for priests. Out of jealousy, he relentlessly sought to kill David, the young man who saved his kingdom from the threat and destruction of Goliath-led attack. He also left God to seek help in the kingdom of darkness. He did not manage his success well and thus ended badly.
Haman had huge success in the court of king Ahasuerus, but he did not manage his success well. In Esther 3, the Bible says that King Ahasuerus promoted Haman above all the princes that were with him. All the king’s servants at the gate (Apart from Mordecai) bowed to Haman because the king had so commanded concerning him. Haman was angry with Mordecai, the Jew, for failing to bow to him and sought to destroy Mordecai and all the Jews in the land. By God’s intervention, Haman’s plot failed and He was hanged on the gallow he had prepared for Modecai’s death. Beloved, when God gives you success, ensure that you manage it well.
TRY NOT TO BECOME A MAN OF SUCCESS. RATHER BECOME A MAN OF VALUE.
The Lord will increase you on every side.
- Lord, I thank You for You are the one that can give true success in life, in the name of Jesus.
- Lord, I thank You for making me what I am today, in the name of Jesus.
- Holy Spirit, help me to discover myself, in the name of Jesus.
- My life, reject every bewitchment, in the name of Jesus.
- Every evil door that is opened to the enemy of my life, be closed, in the name of Jesus.
- Any power drinking the milk of my life, vomit it now, in the name of Jesus.
- Light of God, shine upon my life, in the name of Jesus.
