MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 26 December 2018 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Healing for the Overcharged Heart (III)
TOPIC: Healing for the Overcharged Heart (III) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 26 December 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Matthew 11:28-30
MEMORY VERSE: “Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.” – Philippians 4:9
Right living is a necessary condition for experiencing the peace of God. You cannot separate outward action from inward attitude. Sin always results in unrest (unless the conscience is seared), and purity ought to result in peace. “And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and peace” (Isaiah 32:17). “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable” (James 3:17). The emphasis is on four activities: “learned and received” and “heard and seen”. It is one thing for us to learn a truth, but quite another to receive it inwardly and make it a part of our inner man. Facts in the head are not enough; we must also have truths in the heart. Jesus lived what He preached (Acts 1:1) and Paul did not only teach the word but also lived it so that his listeners could see the truth in his life. This ought to be our experience. We must learn the word, receive it, hear it, and do it. “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only” (James 1:22).
“The peace of God” is one test whether or not we are in the will of God. Colossians 3:12-17 describes the way to live. It says “Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father through Him.”
If we are walking with the Lord, then the peace of God will reign in our hearts. Whenever we disobey, we lose that peace. True and real peace is in Jesus and there is no alternative to this. He has called us to come to Him. To come to Him means to trust Him. When we come to Christ by faith, He gives us rest. When we take His yoke and learn, we find that deeper rest of surrender and obedience. The first is “peace with God” (Romans 5:1); the second is “the peace of God” (Philippians 4:6-8). To “take a yoke” means to become a disciple. When we submit to Christ, we are yoked to Him. The Word “easy” means “well-fitting”; He has the very yoke that is tailor-made for our lives and needs. The burden of doing His will is not a heavy one. Learning is a process. As we learn more about Him, we find a deeper peace because we trust Him more. Life is simplified and unified around the person of Christ. Jesus lived a life of total surrender to God. Even in the face of torment, He subjected His will to the Father’s will. Isaiah 53:3-5 gave the account of His experience, which paved the way for our healing. When you live the life of Jesus, you give no room for the adversary to lay any charge against you, and you will live the life of a conqueror described in Romans 8:31-39.
YOU CANNOT SEPARATE OUTWARD ACTION FROM INWARD ATTITUDE.
May you learn the WORD, receive it, hear it and do it.
- Lord Jesus, teach me to live Your life, in the name of Jesus.
- Holy Spirit, ignite the fresh fire of total surrender in my life, in the name of Jesus.
- My burdens, be lifted up by fire, in the name of Jesus.
- Every weight upon my soul, I cast you out, in the name of Jesus.
- Holy Spirit, transform my life with the word of God, in the name of Jesus.
- I move from ridicule to miracles, by the power in the blood of Jesus.
- I plug myself into the socket of divine blessings, in the name of Jesus.
