MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 23 November 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Winning Through Faith
TOPIC: Winning Through Faith (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 23 November 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ezekiel 20-21; James 5
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Mark 11:22-24
MEMORY VERSE: “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.” – 1 John 5:4
Faith is a veritable weapon and an indispensable companion to every believer who wants to fulfil his divine purpose in life. Your faith will determine whether you succeed or fail in life. It will determine whether this month will birth the fulfilment of your dreams or not. It will also determine whether you live through the New Year as a victor or a victim and whether you appropriate and enjoy your divine benefits or not. Faith is a spiritual force that converts what we desire to what we possess. It is an all-important element in the believer’s journey. That is why the Bible says that the just shall live by faith.
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:11). In the world, people say that seeing is believing but spiritually mature persons know that the demand of faith is that you believe even when you have not seen. Faith is also calling things which are not as if they were. Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and achieves the impossible. The Bible enjoins us to have faith in God and in His Christ. Even the disciples of Jesus Christ, when they realised the importance of faith, begged Jesus to increase their faith. So, faith has size and magnitude. Faith can increase or decrease. Faith can be alive or dead. Faith can also fail. Jesus prayed that Peter’s faith would not fail in the face of satan’s attacks and trials.
Why is faith so significant as a weapon and companion for us in our journey, especially in your journey in life? Here are some of the cogent reasons: Faith assures success (2 Chronicles 20:20), faith is our fundamental duty as believers (John 6:28), faith is a defensive weapon (Ephesians 6:16), faith is an indispensable element in religion (Hebrews 1:16), faith is essential in prayer (James 1:5), faith should be united with love (1 John 3:23).
Beloved, what is the situation with your faith? If it is weak, you must strengthen it. Build your faith is reading and meditating on the word of God, by praying in the spirit and by praying and praising God always. Remember that these spiritual exercises can help your faith to grow or increase, keep it from failing and make you succeed phenomenally in secular and spiritual spheres of life.
To be prepared for war is one of the most effective means of preserving peace.
EVERY POWER CONTENDING WITH YOUR DESTINY SHALL DIE.
1 Thank You Father, for upholding me this far in faith, because, it is not of him that willeth nor runneth, but of God that showeth mercy.
2 Father, give me a faith that will have absolute and unalloyed trust in You.
3 Father, give me a child-like faith that easily believes, trusts and forgives, in Jesus’ name.
4 Father, release upon my life, faith big enough to qualify me for heaven.
5 Father, give me a faith that does not see problems, but sees You, who specialises in solving problems.
6 Father, in anyway I have fallen short of Your glory, have mercy and forgive me.
7 Father, let me never cause anyone who believes in You to stumble or be offended or leave the faith, in Jesus’ name.
