MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 24 March 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – The Zeal of His House
TOPIC: The Zeal of His House (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 24 March 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Joshua 16-18; Luke 2:1-24
FIRE SCRIPTURE: John 2:12-18
MEMORY VERSE: “Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.” – Hebrews 10:7
Jesus had gone about as usual doing His Father’s business, when He saw a bazaar staged in the temple, it was a terrible sight. The disciples saw Jesus’ reaction to this event as strange first of all, but later understood the word of the Psalmist, “The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me” (Psalm 69:9).
One of the most powerful rich men in Brazil made an announcement that he would be burying his million-dollar rare Bentley car so that he could drive it in his afterlife. This received a lot of media attention. Some criticised him for wasting rare and precious commodity as he could donate it to charity. Just moments before lowering the car into the ground, he declared that he wouldn’t bury his car. People present at the occasion were confused and questioned his announcement. He replied “People condemn me because I wanted to bury a million-dollar Bentley. In fact, most people bury things a lot more valuable than my car.”
It is so clear that people bury their talents, time, etc., and become useless in the agenda of God. It is like the story of Isaiah who was busy condemning the children of Israel up and down, seeing visions. But one day, he saw a vision that changed his totality: a special announcement from heaven declaring his position vacant. He was there when God asked, “Whom shall I send and who shall go for us”.
As a youngster, do you still have the zeal of God or is it gone? In our campuses today, it is much of a terrible sight, seeing those who were being groomed by God during their pre-varsity days, now in a bizarre stare. They are no longer on fire for God.
Some would complain saying, “My friends are saying I am too serious and too much of everything is not good” Whereas the two most important things in the life of a young chap is the academics and the power of God.
With the power of God, Jehovah can change or bend rules for your sake. Many too will say, “I cannot minister in my place of work.” It is not possible for someone who is having an affair with her boss to preach the gospel to that same boss.
It is high time we got back to our first love so that we would not become substituted in the game of life. I pray that the Lord will find you dependable and your life will not disappoint heaven, in Jesus’ name.
WE CANNOT GET ANCIENT RESULTS UNTIL WE REVISIT GODLY ANCIENT PRACTICES.
Your position in heaven’s agenda shall not become vacant.
- My Father, let me hunger and thirst for You daily, in the name of Jesus.
- I repossess my lost ground in sevenfold, in the name of Jesus.
- Lord, revive my inner man, in the name of Jesus.
- Any trait of a bat in my spiritual life, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Lord, give me a deeper knowledge of You, in the name of Jesus.
- I receive power to pay the price for spiritual growth, in the name of Jesus.
- Confusion of this generation, my life is not your candidate, die, in the name of Jesus.
