MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 26 October 2018 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Overcoming Failure

TOPIC: Overcoming Failure (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 26 October 2018)

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Matthew 27:1-5

MEMORY VERSE: “And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.Isaiah 58:11


Man has often times failed God by disobeying His word. Adam and Eve failed God by being disobedient to the rules God gave them in the Garden of Eden. They had the privilege to commune with God daily but lost this as a result of disobedience to God. The human race also suffered the consequences of their failure before the coming of Jesus Christ.

Judas failed God and humanity. The opportunity to work with the Master as a treasurer, was given to him free of charge. He failed his generation, he failed his maker, and he failed himself. He committed suicide. Beloved, betrayal does not pay. Job’s wife died before Job, and Judas died before Jesus Christ. It seems the heart of Judas was wrong from the beginning and his motive to join Jesus Christ’s ministry was totally different from that of others. David the king had a repentant and rejoicing heart, which was committed to the Lord. Whenever there is a seed of failure in the heart, it gives satan every opportunity to act, and this seed in the heart of Judas made the devil to capture, manipulate and use him contrary to the meaning of his name “Praise”.

In 2 Kings 14:29, Gehazi failed, but his master Elisha never failed. Gehazi failed in the school of the prophets, despite the gift of discernment in him. Do not forget he discerned the woman had no child and revealed it to his master. He was intelligent, but the negative spirit of covetousness which he refused to deal with, dealt with him, and he was cursed. When David cursed Joab, one of the curses was that of leprosy. The seed of failure can cause disgrace and attack on generations. Beloved, it is possible to have all opportunities in this world and still fail. All of us are not the same because we carry different anointing. Jesus prayed for Peter and said, “I have prayed for you” but to Judas, Jesus said, “That which you want to do, do quickly”. These two statements of Jesus marked a big difference between Peter and Judas respectively. The fact that your colleague failed does not mean you must fail. Arise this morning and begin to kill the seed of failure in your life. You shall not fail God, in Jesus’ name.


For your sake, I rebuke failure; you shall succeed after the order of our Lord Jesus Christ.


1. Father, I thank You because failure is not my lot, in the name of Jesus.
2. By the power in the name of Jesus, from today, I reject failure, in the name of Jesus.
3. By the power in the name of Jesus, I claim success from today, in the name of Jesus.

4. Inherited power of failure operating in my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
5. Failure at the edge of breakthroughs awaiting me this year, die, in Jesus’ name.
6. Failure unto early grave designed by the enemy for me this year, backfire, in Jesus’ name.
7. I shall succeed in good things this year by the power in the blood of Jesus, in Jesus’ name.
