MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 30 November 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Praise Cures “Dry Times”
TOPIC: Praise Cures “Dry Times” (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 30 November 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ezekiel 37-39; 2 Peter 2
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 2 Chronicles 5:11-14
MEMORY VERSE: “And from thence they went to Beer: that is the well whereof the LORD spake unto Moses, Gather the people together, and I will give them water.” – Numbers 21:16
Praise is the cure to the “dry times” that comes to every believer, for here the praise of God caused waters to flow from a well. Note these four truths in our Memory Verse for today (Numbers 21:16-20):
1. God’s instruction to us –“Gather the people together.” There is unity and power in corporate gathering.
2. God’s promise –” I will give them water (life).”
3. The people’s responsibility –They sang, “Spring up o well! All of you sing it.”
4. Our lesson –In times of pressure, anxiety or depression, do not stay alone. Gather with God’s people especially a praising people. Regardless of your personal feelings, sing to your well –the Living God! Let your song be one of thanksgiving for past blessings and a song of faith for the present and the future!
The first example shows that praising God in the unity and power of corporate gathering will bring God’s power and miracle down for you. Giving God thanks, praises and worship ceaselessly can turn your dry season to season of fruitfulness and abundance, turn your parched ground to pools of water and make you a watered garden whose waters fail not. Quality praise can turn open a closed womb and make it bear prolifically. Quality praise can move you from obscurity to limelight. It did for David. The unknown shepherd boy became a national hero. Why? He knew how to praise God. When you give quality time to praising God, all your blocked wells will be unblocked and your dry wells will produce water.
Similarly, our Fire Scripture for today shows that there is power in unity of praise. The Bible says, “It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD; So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of God.” Praise brings down the glory of God. Do you want the temple of your life to be consistently filled with the glory of God this year? Make giving God high and quality praise a daily habit. The glory of God will attract the best that God has reserved for His saints to your life. Resolve to thank God and praise Him the more daily. Remember that Solomon praised God and experienced His presence before he prayed to God for the dedication of the temple. It was because God’s presence was already visible that the prayer got quick answer from heaven –God’s holy fire fell! Beloved, you will always be filled with God’s glory and fire if you make praising Him your preoccupation.
The thankful and praiseful will be mightily blessed.
GOD’S PRAISE WILL CONTINUALLY BE IN YOUR MOUTH.

6 O God, give me honey from the rock, in the name of Jesus.
