MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 30 November 2018 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – The Backbone of God’s Promises
TOPIC: The Backbone of God’s Promises (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 30 November 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Genesis 50:24-25
MEMORY VERSE: “And Moses took the bones of Joseph with him: for he had straitly sworn the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you; and ye shall carry up my bones away hence with you.” – Exodus 13:19
Good promised to visit the children of Israel in their bondage in the land of Egypt. He gave the promise to Joseph in Genesis 50:24-25. In Exodus 13:19, the promise was fulfilled and Moses took along the remains (bones) of Joseph in keeping Joseph’s death wish. In Joshua 24:32, Joseph’s bones were buried at Shechem in the land Jacob bought, and it became an inheritance to his descendants. Joseph had made his children promise that when God releases them from the slavery in Egypt into the Promised Land, they would take his remains (bones) with them. It is important to note here that despite all odds in form of wandering, afflictions, deaths, murmurings and disobedience in the wilderness even the battles lost and won, the bones of Joseph kept moving with them. I want to believe that Joshua’s and Caleb’s faith was very strong because of their knowledge that no matter what, the bones (remains) of Joseph must get to the Promised Land.
The bones of a great prophet kept their faith alive throughout the journey.
Beloved, to every promise of God to man, there is always a “bone” to back it up. When the backbone is neglected or discarded, the promises may not be able to stand or see the light of the day. Those who understood the importance of the prophetic bones and knew that the bones must get to the Promised Land did not mind the giants, the hunger and the thirst. God speaks His promises to us in many ways: through His word, dreams, vision, prophesy, gifts of Holy Ghost, etc. These promises have to do with our needs, such as in marriage, wealth and finance, education, health, salvation, success, breakthrough, fruit of the womb, good jobs, etc. These are our Promised Lands as spiritual Israelites.
To get there, however, and for these to manifest physically in our lives, there are prophetic bones or spiritual backbones we must carry along. When they are neglected, there will not be manifestations, but when they are acknowledged and carried along, there must be results. Some of the spiritual backbones are: bones of witnessing, bones of covenants, bones of perseverance, bones of hope, bones of faith, bones of confidence, bones of obedience, bones of service, bones of the word of God, bones of agonising prayers, etc. You have a role to play; you need to carry the bones along. Between the Promised Land and the manifestation is the bones carriage. They will go with you to the Promised Land and end their jobs there. Are you expecting manifestation of a promise? You need to carry the bones. “And he shall serve the Lord your God and he shall bless thy bread…” We need the bones of service so as to be blessed.
WHEN A CHRISTIAN SHUNS FELLOWSHIP WITH OTHER CHRISTIANS, THE DEVIL SMILES; WHEN HE STOPS READING THE BIBLE, THE DEVIL LAUGHS AND WHEN HE STOPS PRAYING, THE DEVIL SHOUTS FOR JOY.
Your backbone of prayers shall not be paralysed and your paralysed spiritual backbones shall come alive.
1. I deprogramme and cancel all witchcraft prophecies, by the power in the blood of Jesus.
2. Anointing that made Joseph succeed in a strange land, come upon my life now, in the name of Jesus.
3. Every power delaying God’s promises for my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
4. Promises of God concerning my life, be catalysed into manifestation, in the name of Jesus.
5. Backbones of God’s promises for my life, receive divine strength and come alive, in the name of Jesus.
6. All promises of God for my life that my destiny is waiting for, manifest by fire, in the name of Jesus.
7. Anything I have lost due to my lack of faith, be restored by fire, in the name of Jesus.
